Concealer 101| My Concealer Routine For eyes!

Hey gurls!
Il be sharing with you all how I use my concealers for the eyes & what products I use. This is a much requested post by alot of my friends.

Garnier Light Anti Dark Circle Eye Roll On: I use this 1st on my under eyes & lids after I moisturize my eye area. I use my ring finger to spread it evenly. It becomes a good base to put a concealer on top. Somedays when im in hurry I never forget to use this. It instantly brightens up the eye area. I also use it over the Colorbar Instant Coverup Stick under the eye area, & it gives that highlighted look. When im in no mood for make up I never forget to roll atleast this under my eyes.

NYX Concealer In A Jar: I have this in the shade medium. This is a great base for eyeshadows. It has the perfect consistency to stay on the eyes & hold the pigments of the eyeshadow. It conceals well at the same time. It has a slight pink under undertone so I don't use it under the eye are. It looks a bit ashy. & it doesn't covers up the blemishes of my face too well, so its best used as eyeshadow base.

Colorbar Instant Coverup Stick: This is in the shade caramel. I use in under the eye area daily. It is easy to use, blends well over the Anti Dark Circle Eye Roll On. It doesn't creases on me. But you have to set it with some powder to make it last long. It has yellow undertones so all the darkness of under is cancelled out. It gives a good coverage too.

I use the above 3 combination on daily basis..

NYX HD Photogenic Concealer: This is in the shade Tan. I use this on my eye area for extra coverage instead of the Colorbar Instant Coverup Stick mostly during some occasions or on some days when I want to look like "It Girl". I use this on my blemishes, any unevenness of the skin color. It covers up anything. This is my most favorite.

Krylon Supracolor Concealer: This was the 1st yellow concealer that i had got to cover the under eyes & its become my last to reach for. I never knew that it can be very tricky to use as back in the days when i was working in the TV industry I saw the make up artists doing magic with this one. & I knew I should have it too! It can be use for medium to heavy coverage under the eyes only. It cant be used on face for blemishes or discoloration as it looks very cakey. Its very yellow so u cant skip the foundation over it. It crease a bit after sometime. But when used a light hand its quiet ok.

You can see alot of different shades of concealers, thats because you need a different type concealer for different part of the face. I love most of these & it works perfect for me. But im on a constant hunt for a much better concealer. Hope you got an idea whats my concealer routine is!
