Tip #1: It all starts with skincare (we know, you've heard this before). To minimize bags under your eyes, use two tea bags steeped in cool water. The caffeine helps constrict the blood vessels underneath the eye to reduce swelling.
Tip #2: Most makeup artists recommend that you apply eye cream before putting on concealer. Makeup artist Gina Brooke recommends mixing serum directly with your concealer for a creamy consistency that won't settle into fine lines and crow's-feet.
Tip #3: Your concealer should be the last step when it comes to eye makeup. First, put on your full face of foundation, then move to your eye makeup, before finishing off your face with concealer. This order ensures that you cover up any powder that might have fallen from your shadow application.
Tip #4: Don't forget to neutralize the darkness on your eyelids as well. Apply the same concealer you used under your eyes on top of your lids as a eye shadow primer.
