How to Conceal your Under Eyes

Are you always looking for the best products to make it look like you definitely get 8 hours sleep every night? Me too. I'm such a night owl that I constantly find myself working hard late at night (its actually 10.30pm right now!). Although I'm most productive at these hours, when it comes to waking up in the morning I feel like I have weights on my eyelashes.

My solution to combat those tired eyes? Makeup of course.

Once I have finished my foundation I love to pair two products together to give me a flawless underage. Unfortunately they are both higher end products, so will cost a few more pennies that most of us (including myself) would like to part with.

The first step is to apply Urban Decay's Naked Skin concealer, I use the shade Fair Neutral which is the lightest, and apply that in a triangle shape under my eyes like the below picture. I then blend this in with my beauty blender, I've tried many tools to blend this in but find that the beauty blender helps to disperse the product and stop it looking cakey.

Once this has been blended out, I will take my Laura Mercier Loose Translucent Powder, and I apply that in excessive amounts over the top of that concealer. Before you allow the powder to dust the skin and disappear, leave it on the skin for a minimum of 1 minute to allow it to 'bake' (if you want to know what baking is then check out this blog post).

Et viola, your under eyes are concealed thanks to the amazing concealer, and then the powder will hold that in place all day, so even if you do start falling asleep you will look like Sleeping Beauty in the process.
