For a long time we have learned that in order for the eye concealer not to fold or run and last all day, we have to apply some translucent powder to it. Even, it has been said a thousand times - both experts and the most followed vloggers - that if you want a better result, you should use the technique of baking - apply a good amount of translucent loose powders and leave them for a few minutes in the area. That is why many girls carry this routine, which according to the comments, has worked quite well for them. But what would you think if I told you that you've been doing it wrong all this time? And we are not saying it, but an expert.
We are talking about makeup artist Michael Ashton, best known for the impeccable outline that makes the singer Adele and now it is very possible that he is also remembered for this incredible beauty tip. And it is that Ashton ensures that on top of the eye concealer we should not apply loose powders, how?
"Putting powders on top of concealer can make expression lines more visible," Ashton told Thecut.com. "That doesn't happen if you apply a primer [for shadows] first."
Although there are not many companies that offer primers for this area of the face, brands like Smashbox and elf offer it. However, the makeup artist prefers to apply the one he uses for the eyelids. His favorite? Under (cover) Perfecting Coconut Eye Primer, by Marc Jacobs.
Although it seems strange and unconventional, this technique is worth putting into practice. Afterwards, we may never use translucent powders in this area again. Do you dare to try it?
