Never put concealer on your eyelids

We hope this newsletter finds you well. 

As always, Bdellium Tools is here to provide you with the latest makeup tips and tricks to enhance your skills and empower your artistry. Today, we have a quick but essential makeup tip to share with you. Remember, "Never Put Concealer on Your Eyelids." Let's dive right in!

Why Avoid Applying Concealer on Your Eyelids?

When it comes to makeup application, there are certain practices that can make a significant difference in the final result. One such tip is to refrain from using concealer on your eyelids. Allow us to explain why.

Step 1: Creasing and Patchiness: The skin on your eyelids is incredibly delicate and naturally oilier than the rest of your face. Applying concealer directly on the lids can lead to creasing, patchiness, and an uneven finish. It may even emphasize fine lines and wrinkles around the eye area, which is not the look we're going for!


Step 2: Eye Shadow Base Alternatives: Instead of using concealer on your lids, opt for a dedicated eye shadow base or primer. These products are specifically designed to create a smooth canvas for your eye makeup, ensuring better color payoff and longevity. They also help prevent creasing and fading throughout the day, allowing your eye look to stay vibrant and intact.


Step 3: Focus on Concealing Under the Eyes: Concealers work wonders in brightening and concealing under-eye circles, puffiness, and any other discoloration. By keeping the concealer application confined to the under-eye area, you can achieve a flawless finish without compromising the eye shadow's appearance or longevity.

Pro Tips for Beautiful Eye Makeup

Now that we understand the importance of skipping concealer on the eyelids, here are a few additional tips to help you achieve stunning eye makeup looks:

Step 1: Hydrate the Eye Area: Before starting your makeup, make sure to moisturize the eye area adequately. Well-hydrated skin provides a smoother canvas and helps your eye makeup blend seamlessly.


Step 2: Apply Eye Primer: As mentioned earlier, using an eye shadow base or primer creates a flawless base for your eye makeup. Apply a small amount and blend it over the entire eyelid, up to the brow bone, for long-lasting, vibrant eye shadows.


Step 3: Set the Eye Primer: To prevent any creasing or smudging, set your eye primer with a translucent powder or a light dusting of neutral eye shadow. This step helps absorb excess oil and creates a smooth surface for your shadows to adhere to.


Step 4: Explore Eye Shadow Techniques: Experiment with various eye shadow techniques to enhance your eye shape and create depth. Whether it's a classic smoky eye, a cut crease, or a colorful halo, the possibilities are endless!


Remember, practice makes perfect, so don't hesitate to try new techniques and step out of your comfort zone. When it comes to concealer, our Double Dome Blender Brushes are a dream.
