How to prevent under eye creasing


I have a serious problem. Whenever I apply my make-up and concealer under my eyes, after a while it starts to crack and it makes me look old. How do I get that nice, flawless look with no cracks? Please help me.

No Cracks

Hey, No cracks,

I know exactly what you are talking about. Cracking, or creasing, is a major problem that many women face, especially under the eyes. Let’s start at the beginning. The under-eye skin is very thin and cannot be treated as you would treat other parts of the face; you must be very gentle. The key to eliminating this problem is moisture. You need to start a night and day time moisturizer regimen if you don’t already have one.

Less is always more when it comes to that area, so do not apply anything other than a generous amount of your day moisturizer under your eyes before your make-up application. Leave it a few minutes. Apply your concealer and make sure that your sponge or brush is damp (I prefer a sponge).

Tilt your head down or look up and gently tap the concealer to cover the under-eye area. Be very careful if you bake, because that can also dry out the under-eye area; so, if you’re going to bake, then make sure the area is well moisturized. And there you have it.

I hope this helps.
