After watching all the tutorials on how to apply concealer correctly to stop creasing I thought I had this in the bag. What a naïve fool I am. I did everything I was told to do and yet still creasing!
So, I am determined to figure out where it is going wrong:
- Is it the concealer?
- Is it my skin?
- Is it the foundation?
- The moisturiser?
- Am I just rubbish at applying?
WHAT THE HECK is it?
I am a bit of a nerd so I am going to test everything and try and find the elusive result.
I am going to start with foundations as I have quite a few. They are all drugstore except for a Mac and an Estee Lauder Double Wear. I will use the same products, except the foundation, for all the tests. I will do only my eye and not put anything else on. I will then check it throughout the day. As mentioned I am 45 and not stunning so if you have a delicate stomach don’t look at the pictures.
Rimmel 25hr Lasting Finish Foundation (200 Soft Beige)
My bare eye. You will see I have any wrinkles under my eye and on the lid. I also have a big yellow lump in my crease, which the doctor thought was cholesterol until my test came back OK. I don’t know what it is but hate it but I have found ways to hide it which I will show on a later blog.
Horrible, isn’t it? But its real and what I must work with. These are the products I will use for each test. Now listen I know you are thinking “Nivea? Really?” Yes, Nivea! I have rubbish skin and Nivea works best for me
My eye through the day…………. Now I am 45 not 90, and I am sure you will agree this is not a good look.
Well that didnt work did it? I could grow spuds in those trenches. It really does make me look REALLY old. I am wounded.
But wait! Aren’t Filters magical? Not a crease or a wrinkle in sight. #smokeandmirrors
