Concealer is a very useful makeup product that can completely hide even noticeable skin imperfections. But at the same time, due to its dense texture, it can treacherously emphasize the slightest wrinkles on the face. Especially the fine mesh in the area around the eyes.

Fortunately, beauty experts know how to deal with this. OBOZ.UA tells you more about the "oil under concealer" method, which will impressively change your makeup.

What is the "oil under concealer" makeup life hack

As the name implies, this method consists in not putting concealer directly on the skin, but applying a layer of oil under it. Makeup artists strongly advise those who have naturally dry skin or age-related wrinkles around the eyes to try it. The oil will help soften unwanted lines and prevent concealer from rolling into them. Let's talk step by step about how to achieve the desired effect.

Choose the right oil

The first product of this type will not work here. You need to choose an oil that meets your skin's needs. It should also not leave a greasy feeling and still have a moisturizing effect. Jojoba oil, for example, is a good choice.

Apply carefully

Apply the oil very sparingly. If you overdo it, the concealer will not adhere well and your face will start to shine unattractively. To avoid overdoing it, apply one drop on the back of your hand and gently massage it into your skin. Use your ring finger to wipe off the excess oil and pick up a little product on its pad. Apply the oil under the eyes with light movements. Do not stretch the skin or put pressure on it. It is best to apply cosmetics in this area with light patting.

Allow the oil to absorb

Due to its texture, natural oil takes time to absorb. Wait at least a minute for this. Then the product will settle on the skin and you can apply makeup.

Use concealer

Now it's time to apply concealer over the oil. Apply it using your usual method. Don't worry that the product will go on incorrectly. The oil will help create a lightweight yet effective coverage.

Set with powder

To complete your oil makeup and make it more durable, apply just a little translucent powder to the eye area. Excess here will negate all efforts, so before using the product, shake off everything you can from the brush or puff, and then make a couple of light touches of the powder to the skin.
