Does Your Under-Eye Makeup Crease? Here Are Some Tips

If your makeup creases under your eyes and it seems like you've tried every trick to stop it from happening, fret not, because we are here to save the day.

As we age, our makeup tends to gather in the little lines under our eyes, leading to creasing. But is there a way to stop that from happening? Absolutely! Just keep scrolling for our top tips to stop your makeup from creasing in your under-eye area.

Prep With an Eye Cream or Serum

Most people tend to use eye creams only at night, but they're actually super helpful to use during the day under makeup. They will help to prevent your under-eye makeup from creasing thanks to their moisturizing and absorbing capabilities. We're fans of Charlotte Tilbury's Magic Eye Rescue ($65) and First Aid Beauty's Eye Duty Niacinamide Brightening Cream ($36).

Choose the Right Concealer

The concealer you use is absolutely vital to preventing under-eye creasing. If you're using a full-coverage concealer, chances are, you're going to notice creasing. Go for more of a light-coverage concealer and one that you can build up! If you need full coverage, your best bet is Hourglass's Vanish Airbrush Concealer ($36). Another one we like to use is the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer ($31), which has more buildable coverage.

Less Is More When It Comes to Concealer

The mistake you're likely making with your makeup is using too much concealer. While it looks good immediately after application, it will likely start to crease throughout the day. You can still achieve a flawless under-eye look with less concealer, trust us! Less is definitely more when it comes to concealer, so start with a very small amount at the inner corner under your eye and lightly blend it out with a beauty sponge, brush or even your finger. Feel free to add more as you go—just don't go in too heavy to start!

Set Your Concealer With Powder or Bake

If you're not already setting your concealer, this is a change you need to make. Without setting, your concealer with shift and therefore lead to creasing. We don't want that! You can either apply a translucent setting powder with a small fluffy brush or bake your under-eye area. It's up to you and the look you're going for. Our favorite setting powders are the Huda Beauty Easy Bake Loose Powder ($35), One Size Ultimate Blurring Setting Powder ($30) and the Givenchy Prisme Libre Loose Powder ($58).
