Most Effective Under Eye Concealer: Cream Stick Or Liquid Formula?

Let's face it.....Under eye concealer is an important step in most beauty routines.

No one likes dark shadows, sunken circles, or tired-looking peepers. So many of us reach for a bit of concealer to make the bad stuff disappear, and even up the skin tone.

For years, we applied concealer from a tube. You know the kind---the cream stick. It can look crease-y or crepey after a few hours of wear.

Then we stumbled onto a liquid formula, and we've never looked back.

A lot of professional makeup artists like Jake Bailey would agree:

"Liquid formulas absorb more easily under the eyes and cover circles without caking," he tells inStyle magazine.

Jake suggests choosing an under eye concealer consisting of an "opaque fluid with a peach base, which will help counteract the blue-gray tones."

Jake mentions MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Invisible Cover Concealer at $29 a tube at Sephora.

There 14 shades to choose from. Not sure which one has the peach base, but we have learned that it's always best to select an under eye concealer a bit lighter than your natural skin tone.

Whatever you do during your daily makeup routine, DON'T skip the concealer. We ALL need a little.

And don't forget to blend, blend, blend!
