The key to applying flawless concealer under your eyes is to prep and prime.


Prep before concealing


Prep before Priming


Prep with It’s Potent Eye Cream around the brow bone and above the cheekbone. Then dab three dots of Stay Don’t Stray Primer below the eye and on the eyelid, using your finger or a concealer brush to blend evenly. These two products will keep the skin hydrated, yet hold your concealer so it stays perfect all day.

Hide Dark Circles with Benefit Erase Paste


If your concern is dark circles and you’re in need of full coverage, apply three dots of Erase Paste under the eye. This is benefit cosmetics‘ brightening concealer, for a flawless face. Erase Paste is very emollient, and a little goes a long way. Blend with a concealer brush for a flawless finish.

Hydrate with Fake Up


If your concern is dehydration, or you have a delicate under-eye area, use Fake Up as your concealer. Fake Up contains the concealer within a moisturising ring, which gives 6 hours of hydration. Stroke the Fake Up across the cheekbone and blend upwards – taking it close to the eye but without touching the lower lid. Fake Up glides easily, so feel free to use a concealer brush or even your finger.
