I’m a makeup artist who has been experimenting with setting under eye concealer with different types of powders, both on myself and some clients, with varying results. What tips do you have for product or application that won’t be disastrous? I love orange/coral/peachy colors on the skin, but a lot of times clients are scared of orange. Is there a way to ease their minds so they can see how it will brighten and interest to their faces? Thank you!
The best way I always find to brighten under eyes is to use YSL Touché Éclat and apply with a brush then blend using your finger, now set this with a blotting powder. Leave while you focus on the rest of the make up and then come back later to the under eye area to blend again using your finger to smush any product that has settled in creases. Coral and peachy colours are some of my favourite ones to use especially in the summer. Try introducing clients slowly using a cream blush such as Bobbi Brown’s Pot Rouge in Cabo Coral on the apples of cheeks and if they like the result use a complimenting cream colour eyeshadow such as Illamasqua Cream Pigment in Androgen or MAC Paint Pot in Let Me Pop blended into the crease of the eyelid. Cream colours are great as can be blended to be incredibly soft and diffused so helpful if your subject is a bit nervous about the colour.
