How to Keep Concealer From Looking Cakey

Never Have Cakey Concealer Again

Cake on the face may be a party-time shenanigan, but when it comes to makeup, cake on the face isn't quite as amusing. Celebrity makeup artist Pati Dubroff (who has worked with actresses like Julianne Moore, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Naomi Watts) says that the key to preventing cakey makeup from happening underneath the eyes is to think sheer layers. "It's like layering a cake," Dubroff explains. "You wouldn't just slap the frosting on."

To keep under-eyes bright and smooth, Dubroff recommends using a concealing pen, sweeping it on in a light, delicate layer. Follow by gently tapping it in with your fingers, and then repeat the sheer layering process until you reach your desired coverage. Finish by setting your work with a finely milled loose powder applied with the tiniest of makeup brushes. As for the cake, save that for birthdays and weddings.
