|Don't hide behind sunglasses for dark under eye circles. Instead, discover how to better cover them for ideal coverage!|
Of course, you can apply your under eye concealer with a finger. I have often done that. It is quick and always saves you from cleaning an extra makeup brush. However, I stopped once I understood why I kept needing to change one formula of under eye concealer for the next.
What I learned is that the oils in our fingers warm as we blend that concealer, causing the formula to thin out instead of give more substantial coverage as intended. I found that relying on a concealer brush really made the concealer cover more thoroughly.
Excited by this finding, I decided to test this theory on a few other liquid under eye concealers that I was about to toss that were still in my makeup bag. Believe it or not, a concealer brush will help improve the quality of that darkness coverage most of the time. I cannot say all of those under eye concealers passed the test to my satisfaction because some formulas were still less than perfect, but there was a definite difference.
I dare you to try this same experiment before you replace a concealer that hasn’t lived up to your expectations. You just might find that the cause of that poor under eye coverage isn’t coming from the product itself–-only from the addition of the oils from your fingers as you work it into to your skin to change the integrity of its formula.
