The Instant Crease Eraser!

Not a fan of those creases that run from the nose to the corners of your mouth? Do those pesky nasolabial folds seem even more pronounced on dehydrated days? Here is a quick fix (besides drinking tons of water).

Start by taking your favorite concealer and draw some quick lines/ cat whiskers as illustrated in the photo above. Then pat in each line from the bottom up, following the direction you drew it in. Blend until the creases are perfectly disguised!

By working against the direction of the crease, you can blur the depth of the fold, creating a lifting effect. You can even use a highlighter pen like the cult classic YSL Touche Éclat, but I find a concealer stick, in a shade lighter than my skin lasts longer. Try Smashbox’s Camera Ready Full Coverage Concealer for great coverage (as the name promises) in stick form.

This trick also works wonders on the elevens, the frown lines between your eyebrows. Draw 2 lines like an equal sign over the number 11 looking lines. And blend, blend, blend.

Give it a whirl! You’ll be amazed!

Free Instant Eye Lift!

There are days where gravity seems to take its toll. And for those days, I’ve discovered the perfect weapon! In fact, it’s my favorite weapon every day!! Who can’t use an Instant Eye Lift?!! It’s so easy!

Take your trusty concealer (which is hopefully a tad lighter than your skintone for a brightening effect), and draw a line from the lower orbital bone (closest to the outer bottom eye socket), all the way up to the end of your eyebrow. (As illustrated by the red arrows in the photos.) Then take your ring finger and pat in, blending said concealer.

Voila! Instant eye lift! Not only will you love it but so will the camera! Does wonders in photographs!

And the best part?! It takes 2 seconds and it’s FREE!!
