Q&A with Kate: Proper Way to Use Under Eye Concealer



Q: Hi Kate! What is the best way utilize concealers and makeup without accentuating the crepe skin underneath your eyes?

Kate: Thanks, Roena! I get this question a lot!  One of the best things about mineral makeup is that a little can go a long way. That being said, I often notice that if you use too much of a product it actually can have an adverse effect! So the number one thing to remember when using mineral makeup is that less is more. Next time you apply your makeup, pay attention to how heavy your touch is and how much product you’re getting on your brushes.  Chances are you are using too much!

I love using the Texture Eye Brush and Moist Hydration Mist when I apply my Concealer Under Eye because my eyes always tend to be dry. After applying my foundation (remember that less is more! Use a pea size amount for liquids, about 3-4 swirls for pressed base, one dip for loose base), I mist my Texture Eye Brush with Moist Hydration Mist to add a bit more hydration. Then I give a quick dip into my Concealer Under Eye and apply using feathered strokes. Again, a little bit goes a long way. Your brush should not be saturated with product; it should have just a smidge of product on the tip. Follow with a spritz of Moist Hydration Mist because minerals love hydration, so the more hydrated your skin the better.

Another quick tip: Be sure you are using glo minerals Concealer Under Eye (not Camouflage Oil Free). Concealer Under Eye It is specially formulated for the delicate under eye area.
