STEP 1: Prep the Skin
That means making sure your skin is hydrated, prepped and ready to soak in the layers of makeup, you’ll be putting on.
- Tip 1: Under eye cream is a game changer and a must for the most sensitive area of your face.
- Tip 2: Dab the cream on, don’t swipe -- swiping is harsher, does not penetrate as well and you’re applying to the thinnest area of your face so must be gentle.
STEP 2: Color Correct
- Tip 1: The shade you use to correct is based on the color of your discoloration and not just your skin tone.
- Tip 2: There are no hard and fast rules -- play with the shades and figure out what works best for you!
- Tip 3: Use light layers of the Huestick
- Don’t put too much on first application
- Give the Huestick time to sink in before you add more product - you may find that you don’t need any more!
- Less is always more and “if you color correct the right way, you don’t need that much concealer and foundation!”
- Tip 4: Dab with a blender - don’t swipe! Swiping can cause the layers below to move around.
STEP 3: Concealer
- Tip 1: Use two concealers -- 1 neutralizer and 1 brightening.
- Neutralizer - use a color closest to your skin tone to neutralize the corrector, apply a thin layer and blend.
- Tip 2: Use a different tool for each step - you don’t want to mix products on your tools or your face because it can undo all your work.
- Tip 3: Again, dab don’t swipe because you don’t want to remove the layers of correcting you just completed.
STEP 4: Foundation
- Tip 1: Use less foundation than you normally would - Medium coverage would work best!
- Tip 2: For concealer - Use 1 shade lighter than the one you previously used, to brighten.
- You only need a small amount of concealer!
STEP 5: Blend With Powder
- Tip 1: Put some powder on your hand, pat sponge into powder and press in under the eyes.
- PRESS it in because you don’t want the concealer or corrector to move.
