Under eye concealers..

Post by Pixiepink » Wed Apr 24, 2013 10:30 am

So I've noticed gurus tend to use two under eye concealers.. One to colour correct dark circles and the other to conceal or brighten.. A lot of them tend to be heavy handed too. I don't know how some gurus use so much concealer under their eyes without it creasing or settling into fine lines, as it happens to me with just one layer of concealer. What concealers do you guys find work good for dark under eye circles? Also does putting a setting powder help? when I tried using a powder it looked dry and crusty lol.

Honestly I doubt they go out with all of it on, I think they only do it when filming because that's the only time when it looks okay. In person, they'd look 10 years older. Personally I use a corrector on the dark parts under the eye, usually avoiding the lines, and then I use a light skin-tone concealer on the rest. It creases a little bit but I find it's the most natural looking way to do it. I like Benefit's Erase Paste and Pixi's Correcting Concentrate to cancel out the dark circles, and I usually use Benefit's Boiing or Rimmel Match Perfection over the entire area. :)

I like using a brightening cream under eye concealer it is what hides my bags the most. I only use one right now the sheercover duo, but when I use it up I think I wanna try one of the click pen brighteners because the cream tends to crease.

Also, I forgot to mention, but I've heard a lot of great things about the Bare Minerals "Well Rested" powder. And if you go to Sephora trying to find one, do NOT get suckered into the Bobbi Brown correctors, the first ingredient is Petroleum Jelly, which means they are super greasy (and I've heard they crease so easily).

The new NARS concealer is pretty good. I have pretty serious undereye darkness and it covers it up well. My only issue with it is that it's a tiny bit drying, so I wear a regular makeup primer underneath. Doesn't crease and good coverage!

i think they put stuff on heavy handed because you have to put on more makeup to make it show up on camera. idk how that whole stuff works though lol.

but i use mac studio fix concealer, the cream one in the pot, and i love how much coverage it gives my under eyes but i hate how easily it creases.

I used a theatrical foundation for corrector. Since it's wax based, it really sticks instead of sliding all over the place.

I believe I watched a review from gossmakeupartist about that, I'm definitely going to try it out.

Does it settle into fine lines at all?

Nope!

Before I used that, i would put a silicone primer under my eyes, then concealer. Sometimes there needs to be a barrier of sorts between the skin and makeup.

Gahhhh, I need to find a wax-based concealer then. Even when I use a primer underneath my concealer, it just makes it harder to blend and then settles anyway. :(

Also saw a tip to spray the brush with a bit of setting spray and use it under the eyes to help prevent creasing , never tried it though.

I never understood why cosmetic companies make undereye concealer so slippery. I won't assume it's common knowledge that the undereye area to be the most prone to wrinkles, and most expression lines form around the eye, but one would THINK that being in the beauty industry they would know that.

Yes, the area is delicate, so the less dragging the better, but really. A lot of them are just grease with color in them.

One I can recommend is the laura mercier secret camouflage concealer.

If you search online, you'll find many more options. I know that wax concealers get a bad rap for being "heavy", but it honeatly comes down to application, as with all makeup.

I'm gonna have to disagree on both of these. Well Rested is seriously horrible, IMO. It doesn't matter if you use it over concealer or alone, it ends up looking cakey and accentuates every single flaw under your eyes. On the other hand, the Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer and Corrector are two of my favorites (I'm a concealer junkie). I don't find them too slippery and they don't settle into fine lines. Granted, I always set all of my undereye concealers with powder.

I'm honestly not trying to make waves, just giving a different opinion. :)

I absolutely detest that cakey look of putting concealer under my eyes so I would always opt for a liquid concealer to keep it as moisturized as possible, but then I would find myself having to apply a cream concealer over top anyway because I have really dark under eyes due to genetics :( I did like using the MAC Moisture Cover though, too bad even the lightest shade is a bit too dark for me.. I just use one of those concealer palettes by Makeup Forever now because at least the shade is light enough, though I'm not fond of how greasy it can get.

I could use some suggestions myself actually lol :(

Laura Mercier in the small round pot. I can't remember the exact name. I have AWFUL under-eye circles. And I mean TERRIBLE. Very, very noticeable. They're purple and dark and veiny. This concealer helps a lot. It's a cream one so a bit of setting powder looks nice on top.

I really like the Sonia Kashuk quad that comes from target. I has a setting powder in it with a corrector and 2 different shades of concealer, I use the darker to mask my bluish purple areas and the lighter to brighten.

I'm getting really tired of the Erase Paste, honestly if any of you are thinking about getting it, don't expect it to actually cover really dark circles...I really like it for brightening but it's just not a corrector IMO. I think maybe if I got the darker shade, it would cancel out the tones better. :/

I was already turned off by the name. "Paste" just doesn't appeal to me in any form, or fashion.

My mom calls it "cake paste", hahahaha. But yeah, I much prefer using the Pixi corrector over this one, I can't believe I spent so much money on it. :|
