Bright and Highlighted Under Eyes

08:56

Hello everyone!

I love my under eye area to be extremely bright and highlighted, I don't like anything subtle, I really like something thats quite in your face so I will be sharing with you how I achieve my look.


STEP ONE : CORRECT


I suffer from particularly bad dark circles, they're quite black so I need something heavy duty to conceal it. Previously before using corrector I used to just pop on concealer and this never actually worked, it created a grey and ashy area under my eyes which was horrendous. So I use the Bobbi Brown Corrector in Dark Bisque, its quite orange tone but it completely eliminates my dark circles, creating a clean canvas for me to work with. 

STEP TWO: CONCEAL


After I have corrected, I go in with a concealer. I personally love the MAC Pro Longwear concealer, its very high coverage but isn't it thick and cakey so its perfect for the under eye. This brightens up my under eyes a little bit but I mainly use it to neutralise the orange tone that the corrector left. 

STEP THREE: HIGHLIGHT


After I have down the previous two steps, I then go in with my brightening concealer. I personally love the Mac Prep + Prime in Light Boost. It's quite light but this is perfect for highlighting and has a yellow undertone so it really makes the underye area bright and pop! I apply this in the traditional triangle method.

STEP FOUR: POWDER


This is such an important step, you don't want to have worked so hard to conceal and brighten only for your concealers to have creased and moved around. So what I do is take a loose powder, I love the MAC CC Loose Powder in Neutralise, this has a very yellow tone to it so again emphasises on the bright and highlighted under eyes and I will apply that in a patting motion to the areas where the concealers were applied. Some times I bake with this, other days I don't it usually depends on how much time I have! 

And that concludes how I conceal and highlight! I know this may seem excessive but this routine is more for when i'm going out clubbing or special occasions, I never do this on an everyday basis. Let me know how you get a bright under eye and which products you would personally recommend!

Thank you for reading!

  1. Thanks so much for sharing this list of products, beautiful! I have to check out the Bobbi Brown corrector, it sounds like such a great product. I have the same problem with some correctors I use that create a grey coloring, too. Again, thanks for sharing and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    1. The grey colouring really annoyed me for so many years, I tried so many concealers but my dark circles were so bad that it still created an ashy area, the corrector definitely changed this! :) xx

  2. I really like the Mac Prolongwear concealer, the texture is so thin, but it offers a lot of coverage :)

  5. I have that same MAC concealer. It was great when the girl in the store put it on but I personally don't like applying it. Maybe I'll try out your tips next time :)

    1. Was it the colour match or just the way you were applying it? I know my mum hated the pro longwear concealer because she got matched wrong but when I let her try some of mine, she loved it! As for technique, I just blend this out in patting motions with a large dense brush, i never swirl the product round or use circular motions. Hope that helps! :) xx

  6. This was such helpful post ! I am definitely doing to have to get some of that Bobbi Brown correcter because my eyes are awful for dark circles and I would love to try the mac concealor ! I'm always too lazy to highlight when I'm in a rush but I'm trying to get into the habit of doing my make up better !

    Lots of love, Marianne xxx

  7. Lovely post! I am the total opposite to you, I am always running so late that I tend to skip concealer altogether. Still, this will be handy for those days where I have the time to actually make my skin look halfway decent.

  11. I just realised where I'm going wrong, I never 'corrected' only concealed. I inherited dark under eye circles as well so I'm going to go on the hunt for an orange toned corrector. THANK YOU!

  50. very useful post...I learned something new today about the importance of correction.... I should learn to do than and not only attempt to conceal. I do sometimes have issues with dark circes under my eyes because I'm an insomniac and I must find a good routine for myself!

    p.s. these MAC products seem great!
