Here are some quick tips from one of our pro artists, Kelly Ford, on how to cover those difficult dark circles!
Kelly recommends using color correctors, and here’s how:
Step 1: Start with a clean and moisturized face
Step 2: Apply an under eye cream. Let this set for approximately 3-5 minutes.
Step 3: Using a rounded, firm, yet soft makeup brush, apply IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye Corrector. This is applied from the inner to outer corner and down to where the bottom of the eye socket meets the upper cheekbone.
Step 4: Using your ring finger apply IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye Concealer OR Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer (She finds that both work equally as well and whichever you use, you will find that a little product goes a long way). Lightly tap this into the skin until it is absorbed.
Step 5: Using the same brush used for the corrector, apply Laura Mercier's Secret Brightening Powder to the area.
Step 6: Sit back and smile, it's that easy!
Have fun this summer, and be playful and confident in the sun and sea with the best waterproof products. These are our artists' all-time favorites picks!!
"It makes the littlest lashes so voluminous without looking clumpy!" -Catherine Norton
"It's inexpensive, easy to get a hold of, builds volume beautifully without clumping, doesn't flake, it's super black, and it stays on all day" -Jennifer Viveiros
This beautiful product is water resistant, not water proof, but it is definitely worth sharing!
"The brush is super thin, and gets right at the roots of your lashes! It gives great length and separation, and it's also tubular so it doesn't smudge or flake off." -Jenner Kennedy
Long Lasting Liners:
"Extremely pigmented, glides on easy, and doesn't budge!" -Kristen Poulin
Kristen recommends using the Sephora Collection waterproof eye makeup remover for this invincible eyeliner.
"This liner is perfect for tight-lining the lashes and making them appear fuller, and also for creating a beautiful, waterproof wing! Once it's on, it is not going anywhere! The product does set very fast, so it helps to work in sections." -Maryelle O'Rourke
Invincible Lip Products:
These stains aren't technically waterproof, but Colby raves about these lip stains for their staying power.
"The formula is a smooth, creamy consistency, that never dries, flakes, or coagulates throughout the day. The product is buildable, so you can opt for a sheer coat, or layer to create full, rich pigment. Not only does it look fabulous, it also contains mango extract that hydrates the lips and gives it a naturally fresh fragrance." -Colby Correnti
"Although they are not marketed as waterproof, they truly are one of the most long wearing lip products on the market." Our artist, Megan Buttry, also suggested a little tip for matte, long wearing lip colors. "Make sure to hydrate the lips at night, as these particular products can sometimes appear dry on the lips."
Beach Proof Brows:
"Brows are such a big thing right now. The Dipbrow is an extremely reliable product in terms of being very waterproof. A little bit goes a long way, and it is best applied in short, hair-like strokes. I like warming up the product on the back of my hand before applying it to the face." -Megan Buttry
