The right sheer cover concealer usually provides the most natural results for hiding under eye circles and shadows.
But somehow we can never seem to buy a concealer that covers well. Some are too thick and wind up exaggerating swollen puffy eyes and fine lines - while others don't seem to offer much coverage at all.
If you have to apply several layers - then it's not the right product for you. Piling on layers of a cover concealer will only make things worse.
Generally, as a rule of thumb, sheer concealers will usually come in a tube or stick and have a liquid type consistency. Avoid any concealer that is cakey or comes in a pot. These most likely will be too heavy for the eye area.
Look a concealer with moisturizes, light reflecting ingredients, and/or a semi-matte cover.
Reflecting light and reducing shine - while keeping the area hydrated - is key for a natural soft look.
Keep these tips in mind when looking for a sheer cover concealer.......
Also, it has a nice buttery feel that melts into your skin - not on top. I think this is what makes it so effective.
Here are some great ideas to try when applying a sheer eye cover……..
To fully cover those dark shadows or circles - step back away from the mirror a little bit and bend your down– while looking up with eyes.
You'll really see those shadows now!
Then take your sheer concealer and - sort of paint them away – brushing lightly until the dark shadows are no longer visible.
Then move closer to the mirror and lightly dab the color - very gently - to press and blend it in.
Finally - iI always find it's best to wait a few seconds and let the sheer color set before touching it.
By letting it
dry a bit first, more color is left behind.
P.S. If you need to cover very dark under eye circles and need something heavier - then make sure it's formulated to be used around the eyes. Otherwise, you'll just make things look worse.
