The first rule of professional makeup is that there is no such thing as a bad look, any beauty can be emphasized if you apply the right techniques. Let's look at this statement using the example of deep-set eyes.

People with this feature naturally have more pronounced cheekbones and brow bones, but they have a hollow and darkened area under their eyes due to the position of their eyes. This shadow can make them look tired. As OBOZ.UA found out, the main life hack that allows you to correct this feature is the correct use of concealer.

However, concealer is not the only tool that will help lighten the shadows around deep-set eyes. You will need all your standard makeup products, as well as a moisturizing primer or eye cream, concealer, and setting powder. Life hacks for deep-set eyes will also help those who want to hide dark colas, crow's feet and other features in this area.

Start with moisturizing

Adequate moisturizing of the skin around the eyes is crucial, as it is the moisture in the skin that helps to keep it smooth. In this case, decorative products go on more smoothly and age-related changes are less noticeable. Therefore, to prepare the under-eye area, apply an eye cream or primer and let it absorb completely before moving on to the next step.

Next, use an orange or peach concealer to neutralize the shadows. Those with fair skin should go for peachy shades, while darker skin should be painted with a deep orange.

Choose the right concealer

To really remove dark circles under the eyes, you need a concealer of the right tone. It should be one to two shades lighter than your skin tone. The consistency of the product also matters. It is better to use something lighter in texture in the under-eye area than on the rest of the face, and the product should have a moisturizing effect. This is especially true if you have a dry skin type. But for people with deep-set eyes, liquid products are not suitable at all - they will not provide the desired level of coverage.

The double-bake trick

So, deep-set eyes have a more noticeable crease under the eyes, which means that decorative cosmetics in this area can roll off and get stuck in the skin depressions. This is where setting powder comes in. It will help keep makeup in place. But it's important not to overdo it, because an excess of the product will lead to an undesirable effect - the powder itself will begin to crack.

To create a light layer of powder, use the baking technique - apply the product to the under-eye area with a damp makeup sponge. Next, let the powder dry for a few minutes and then sweep off any excess with a fluffy brush.

How to apply makeup under the eyes

Makeup artists say that the correct coverage of the under-eye area can be ensured by applying cosmetics with your fingers. This way, you will evenly distribute the concealer over the skin and help it to absorb well, because your body heat will make the texture of the product softer on both sides - on the finger side and on the face. However, a small fluffy brush will also work.

Because there are many fine lines and microscopic depressions in the skin around deep-set eyes, product can easily slide into these lines. This is especially true if there is too much product or if it is not blended properly. Experiment to find the right proportions for you and you'll soon be applying color without mistakes.
