You look gorgeous! x_x
Um, probably a very obvious question, but you wouldn't happen to know of a way to stop concealer caking under the eyes at all? I've tried so many different concealers and getting a nice look for my under eye is the one thing I struggle with! If I set it with powder, it goes cakey, don't set it with powder it goes chalky. It's very odd.
Hmm...i'll leave a little tip for make-up as well so i'm at least contributing a little bit?
My tip is try using primer if you struggle getting your foundation on evenly
It works wonders if you have dry skin as it helps foundation go on much much smoother. I use Lancome's La base and when I'm not using that I use Mac's prep and prime. (Who also do an awesome SPF50 primer too!)
Aww thank you!
Hmmm. That is really a toughie. This is what I usually use!
----> The review I posted:
"I love this pen. It works as a truly wonderful under eye brightener. All the concealers I have tried using under my eyes have been too cakey or too heavy and have accentuated my wrinkles there. Yuck. This is a perfect balance of coverage and still looking natural. It's not a full coverage product because it's meant to luminize & highlight, not to conceal. If you are looking for a concealer this is definitely not it. If you want something to smooth you out around the edges and make you look more radiant and rested- this IS it! I use it on my eyelids, under eyes, around my mouth, and the corners of my nose. It's also good around eyebrows to really define them."
So that is a great thing to have in your arsenal. The other thing I love is Amazing Cosmetics's concealer. It does settle. You just have to check it every once in a while and gently smooth it with the tip of your finger. I haven't really found one that NEVER EVER settles. Haha. But these are my 2 best options. I don't set it with powder. I might sweep my big face brush lightly under my eyes- but that's the max amount I would put there, otherwise it does look cakey. Make sure it's blended really well into your cheek area and around the edges and you should be fine.
And your tips are great, thanks!
