Lets be honest, concealer can be a pain in the ____.
Some concealers are too dry, to liquidy, to creamy...They crease, they cake, they flake.
So many things can go wrong with concealers, its like the odds are not in our favor.
So to help take all that stress away I wanted to share my tips and tricks on avoiding cakey concealer.
I have really dry under eyes, and so does my mother. (I'm using my mother and I as an example because I do our makeup frequently)
I could moisturize my face all day, put on my foundation and have it be just fine, but then comes my dark circles.
They cant be covered with a liquidy concealer (which would decrease cakeyness)
I need a thick heavy duty cream concealer, but of course that is the most likely to cake on your skin.
Here's why - Your eyes need moisture, when your skin is very dry and you wear makeup your skin sucks up all the pigment in search of that moisture. Now you have creased, caked concealer that isn't providing any coverage.
Take a under eye hydrating cream and pack it on under your eyes (or your clients eyes) more than you would use regularly. You don't want this to blend away into the skin right away. the point is to put enough on that your skin slowly but eventually drinks in all the product.
By putting on a bunch of cream, your eyes will get that much needed hydration and it wont suck up your concealer instead. If by the time you are ready to start your makeup the product has not finished blending into your skin, then just wipe away the excess with your finger.
If you follow these easy steps then it should get the job done!
