How to Brighten Your Eye Area Using Concealer

Each week, Jenny will share a quick, easy to follow skincare or makeup tip for you to try at home. No bullshit, no hyping products, just fun, time saving techniques for you to try when you’re getting creative with your cosmetics and skincare - hence the name “Just the Tip”.

When applying concealer to your eye area, two mistakes are often made: 

The first is using too much concealer, causing it to well up in the fine lines under the eye area. A very tiny bit goes a long way and you can always build up if needed.  

The second is the area between your inner eye and side of your nose is usually quite dark and gives away our "tiredness".  We often miss this area when applying concealer underneath the eye. Gently blend your concealer to cover any darkness between your eye and the side of your nose to brighten up your eyes.
