We all know the drill – you wake up with dark circles and no matter what you do, you can’t seem to get rid of them! Even when you do get them covered, you notice that your coverage wears off by lunch. We are so excited to have Taryn Passifione with us today to share her secrets to long-lasting concealer. With her amazing tips to keep your concealer lasting and brighten up that tough area, you won’t be worrying about your under eyes any longer! Here’s what Taryn has to say:

Let’s face it, under eye concealer is a must! Here is an easy way to ensure it will last for any occasion!


Before starting the concealer application, complete the (top lid) eyeshadow, liner and lashes. This way if anything falls under the eyes, it can easily be wiped up!


Since some clean up may take place under the eye, wait to put the under eye primer on right before adding liquid foundation over the entire face. By placing the foundation on prior to the concealer, it shows just how much extra coverage is needed.


After liquid foundation is on, place concealer under the eye almost in an obtuse triangle shape. Press this in with a damp Beauty Blender sponge.


After this, to add a bit more drama, liquid highlighter may be applied to the top part of the cheekbones. This brightens the top of the cheeks even more! (Feel free to add liquid highlighter or concealer to any other part of the face that needs highlighting and blend in with the Beauty Blender!)


Next, its time to set!!! Using a brush or sponge apply a generous amount of translucent loose powder over the concealed area. *Important- make sure all products are blended in as much as possible. If any has settled into lines and aren’t buffed out prior to applying setting powder, they will stay this way!


While the powder is working on its magic, go ahead and contour, bronze, blush. After these steps are done, lightly brush off the excess setting powder.


Then spritz a little setting spray over the face. Its time to add shimmer highlight (if desired). Finish under eye shadow/liner/mascara and lips!!
