mmwmd large Makeup Mondays With Mario: Best Under Eye Concealer

Celebrity makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic is answering your burning beauty questions!!! Every Monday, he will answer a beauty/skin care question as part of a weekly column on Spoiled Pretty, Makeup Mondays with Mario.

Hi Mario!

What is the best concealer and how should it be applied for the best coverage? -Liz icon smile Makeup Mondays With Mario: Best Under Eye Concealer

undereye+concealer Makeup Mondays With Mario: Best Under Eye ConcealerLiz,

The best concealer really depends on the skin or area you want to cover up. If I had to choose one right now, I’d say the Lift Concealer by Make Up For Ever. Apply some with a brush to undereyes, blend with a damp sponge and set with translucent powder using the same damp sponge. Brush away that excess powder and voila – you’ve got flawless, creaseless undereyes!

Thanks for visiting Makeup Mondays with Mario!

xo,
Mario

Words From The Wise: Benefit Sheds Light On How To Cover Dark Circles

Posted on by daneen in Concealer, Powder | Leave a comment

benefit erase paste Words From The Wise: Benefit Sheds Light On How To Cover Dark CirclesSpoiled Pretty reader Amy wrote me, hoping that I could shed some light on disguising her dark circles:

“I am fairly young (32) and get a fair amount of sleep every night and yet every morning I have dark circles under my eyes. I feel like I have tried many different concealers but those dark circles are always there! Is there a secret to applying concealer – or a product that will rock my world? Help me Spoiled Pretty!”

To assist Amy, I turned to Ann Ford Danielson, Makeup Trend Artist for Benefit Cosmetics – who provided some illuminating advice.

benefit+powderflage Words From The Wise: Benefit Sheds Light On How To Cover Dark Circles“Have no fear, Erase Paste is here!!!! This product is a concentrated creamy concealer that will camouflage your dark circles instantly. A little goes a long way with this product, so you get a good bang for your buck. It will not only conceal your dark circles but it also brightens the eye area, leaving you looking rested and ready to go!! Erase paste doesn’t dry out the under eye nor does it start to crease as the day goes on. All in all, it is an under eye miracle worker!!! I love to brush on a little Powderflage right on top to help set and smooth over the erase paste. The two products together are killer. Say goodbye to your dark circles for good!!”

Amy, get ready to give your dark circles the one-two punch, because you will soon be receiving Erase Paste and Powderflage, courtesy of Benefit.

Thanks to Ann Ford Danielson and Benefit Cosmetics for participating in this installment of Words From The Wise!
