How to Stop Your Under Eye Concealer From Creasing

Get rid of that little line (or lines!) once and for all.

Concealer is an amazing way to cover up blemishes, dark circles, and other uneven spots on your face, but it comes with its own troubles. It tends to get stuck in little creases andfine lines, highlighting those spots rather than neutralizing them, particularly when you pile it on. This easy trick from makeup artist Lavonne Anthony helps fix that problem, allowing you to get the smooth and even under eye areas you want — without caking on your makeup.

Step 1

Apply a liquid or cream concealer using a concealer brush, blending it to cover your entire under eye area for a smooth finish. (If you want to brighten up your face even more, use the beloved triangle concealer trick.) Start with a minimal amount of concealer, then add more as needed. You don't want to overdue it, lest you wind up with way too much — a common mistake that can make you look older rather than less tired.

Step 2

Anthony recommends using a small makeup sponge to apply a loose translucent powder over your concealer. "The mini sponge gets right in the corner of the eye better than a brush can, and it sets the makeup as to look as though it's been airbrushed," says Anthony. She also emphasizes the importance of setting your concealer quickly, otherwise it can start to crease in any fine lines.

And just like that, you've got coverage that will last all day.

The potential health benefits of drinking green tea are almost countless. "The antioxidant EGCG has been studied to treat various diseases and may help with brain function, fat loss, and lowering the risk of cancer," says Snyder. "Polyphenols are another antioxidant plentiful in green tea and can reduce the formation of free radicals in the body, protecting our cells from aging and other diseases." Keep your sipping to one or two cups a day as green tea is high in caffeine, which is best consumed in moderation, says Snyder. As for which to buy: "It's great to use organic loose leaf tea or tea bags that contain loose leaves, which are higher quality and are less processed," she says, as opposed to tea 'dust.'
