How To Conceal Under Eye Circle/Bags

Learn how to cover up dark circles with orange salmon concealer.

1)When you need to neutralize a color refer to the color wheel.

2)If you want to get rid of the blue undertone in your eye go with the opposite color on the wheel, which is blue.  

3)Your next step is to conceal with one shade lighter than your natural color. I recommend using Bobbi Brown Correctors they come in 16 pink- or peach-based shades that are designed to layer with Bobbi Brown’s yellow-based concealers. My other favorite is Eve Pearl Concealers, which come in peach/salmon conceal shades.

Natural Remedies For Dark Circles & Puffy Eyes

Did you wake up only to look in the mirror after a night of partying, or studying, and see dark circles or puffy eyes! No worries we got you covered with these 6 all natural remedies you can do at home!

1) Get Plenty of rest. Typically, tiredness, lack of sleep or tension favor the look of these marks under the eyes. However, with time, the bags start to store fat, fluid and a swelling happens. In turn, the coloration of dark circles ends up being emphasized and ended up being more visible.

2) Hydrate. Dehydration can cause bags under the eyes, so up your water intake.

3) Severe cases can be fixed with surgery. Other factors that may predispose its development are genetic aspects, allergies, adverse effects due to the usage of certain drugs. When this problem is not dealt with early, the only method to eliminate dark circles and bags is through a little surgery, with risks running back to develop them in the future. If you do not have an extreme, persistent or recent issue, you can treat them with homemade dishes much more effective than any industrial cosmetic treatment.

Natural Remedies

1) With sweet potato.
The potato starch has bleaching properties to the skin. Besides this vegetable it is excellent for fighting inflammation and moisturizes the skin, as their water content is very high. To remove dark circles and bags, cut potato slices 1.5 cm thick and place in refrigerator 10 minutes. Then, apply directly on the eyelids and bags, let it act for 15 minutes.

2) With cucumbers.
The treatments we have seen so many times in the movies are true. Cucumber has anti – inflammatory properties that work very well topically . To do this, cut cucumber slices 0.5 cm thick. Place them over your eyes until they warm, then change them into new slices. Do this for 20 minutes and you will immediately notice the difference.

3) With green tea or black & green tea.
Green tea prevents fluid retention, so drink it daily promotes the elimination of toxins and prevents inflammation throughout the body. Drink two cups of green tea daily , one in the morning and one at night.

To take advantage of the antioxidants of this infusion and remove dark circles and eye bags, you can also moisturize two green tea bags with a little hot water. When they warm, remove some of the excess water and apply the sachets directly over the eyes.

4) With Ice.
Apply an ice bag for 10 minutes. The ice will help to reduce swelling.

5) With cow or goat’s milk.
Place the milk in the refrigerator. When cool, soak two cotton circles and place them directly on the eyelids and pouches. Leave on for 15 minutes and then rinse with cold water. You’ll see that this trick to remove dark circles and bags is one of the easiest and effective!

6) With apples.
Apples help relax the muscles , so that will be a great help if you are tired and tense face after a long day. Place an apple in the refrigerator, when it is very cold, mix it together with a tablespoon of oats until it forms a thick paste. Cover your entire face with it, even the circumference of the eyes, and let it act for 15 minutes. Then rinse with plenty of cold water.

Additional advices…

1) Avoid anything that promotes fluid retention such as consumption of salt.

2) Consume abundant diuretic foods such as asparagus, green tea, etc.

3) Take care of your skin with moisturizers and protect it from damage by sun exposure.

4) Avoid the habit of rubbing the eyes continuously. Many people do it on repeated occasions every day and they do not know it. This habit irritates and damages the delicate tissues around the eye and interferes with treatment if you want to eliminate dark circles and bags .

1.     Be Stress Free
Enjoy the salon/spa coming to you on your wedding day, relax and be pampered in the comfort of your hotel, home, or venue, while sipping on champagne, enjoying breakfast, and chatting with your girlfriends. You already have enough to worry about, leave the beauty part to the professionals. 

2.    Be The Best You

Although you may say I don’t wear much makeup so I’ll just do it myself, what you may not realize is there is a lot more detail in creating a natural makeup look for photography than you think. Bridal makeup is entirely different from your everyday makeup, even if you do a great job the key is to know how the makeup photographs. A professional makeup artist will highlight your best features and contouring any imperfections.  They will use proper techniques and professional products that are best for all day wear to keep you looking flawless through your entire day. Your makeup artist is going to know what colors to use to make your eyes pop and how to apply eyeshadows correctly for your eye shape. Your hairstylist is going to know what hairstyles will best suit your facial shape, facial features, and fit your desired hairstyle within your bridal theme. Also, your hairstylist will keep in mind how your hair will photograph from every angle to make sure symmetry is perfect.

3.   High Quality Professional Products

Professional hair/makeup artists carry high quality expensive products that are designed for HD film/TV, longevity, and wear-ability. Leave your hair and makeup in the hands of professionals who have taken years of professional training to keep up on the trends, techniques, and latest product inventions. Do your research when hiring your artist, ask them what is in their kit, as most professionals have spent $500-$2500 on their kits.

4.   Your Skin, Why Is It So Important?

Everyone is looking at you on your wedding day as you are the center of attention, so invest in you- this is your day do it your way! In order to achieve that flawless makeup look we all want, we first need to take care of our skin. A professional makeup artist will be able to examine and give recommendations for improving your skin and possibly be able to customize a skin care routine for you or recommend a series of facials before the big day. BPure Spa recommends our brides to start a 6 step series of facials well in advance of your wedding date, ask us more about our bridal spa packages. 

5.    Why is a bridal trial important?
A bridal trial is a chance for you to meet with your artists and try hair/makeup styles you like to give you an idea of what your overall look will be. Just because you love a certain hairstyle on someone else it may or may not be the right look on you. You will want to meet them and make sure that your personalities are compatible, because they will be a part of an intimate time with you and your bridal party. At your trial you should be able to communicate your ideas or concerns and be open to receiving feedback from your stylist on what looks may be best suited for you. A professional artist who is great at what they do will listen to your concerns, make sure you’re comfortable, and will gain your trust in the process. You should walk out of your bridal trial feeling like a million bucks, and if you don’t make sure you let your artist know, as they are there to make you happy. 

 

So…. Will you be hiring a professional to do your makeup and hair on your wedding day? Remember you get what you pay for, make sure you do your research when hiring an artist. If there is a makeup/hair stylist offering super low prices for on-location wedding makeup/hair, they are most likely lacking experience.  Book a professional with a portfolio, reviews, and a good reputation, because it is not worth hiring the wrong person for your wedding day!

Victorian Girl with a Modern Twist

I did my friend Georgette's makeup and hair a bride to be! She loves golds and browns on her eyes so I did a gold shimmer on her lid, a soft white under her brow bone, a red brown in the crease with a rich brown on the outer edges to accent her eye. I finished her eye off with a winged black liner and lashes to really make her eyes pop. I used temptu airbrush for her foundation and contoured her forehead, nose,and cheeks. I gave her a subtle glow on the cheeks called my "Krystal Glow". To complete this look I used Ice Wine lip gloss from my Krystal Rose Cosmetics Luxury Lip Glosses. For her hair I did a finger wave on the right side, and started rolling and pinning up from the left side. I went all the way around the hair curling and pinning up blending it over into the right side.
