From beginners to experts, there’s always one makeup trick that everyone wants to master. It’s not contouring or painting on a feline flick, but it’s how to prevent concealer from creasing. Nothing ruins a good MOTD like messed up concealer!

It's not our fault we have creases under our eyes where makeup can leak into, though. We were just born that way! So to avoid having bits of makeup going in the creases, which we are all prone to since we move our faces, and have a smooth under eye area all day long, keep scrolling down for the 4 tips you need to stop concealer from creasing!

Don't ever forget eye cream

A cardinal rule when it comes to applying makeup on your eye are is to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! Your eye area is drier than the rest of your face, so imagine applying makeup with the Sahara Desert as a base? Not easy! So take your favourite eye cream, dab it on your lids and under eye area and let it set for a while, allowing your skin to really drink up the product. Applying makeup will feel like a breeze once you do this step!

Apply eyeshadow primer before foundation

We know that applying foundation before concealer is often preferred, but now it’s supposed to be eye primer, foundation, then concealer! Why should it be this way? So that if your foundation ever goes on your eye area, it won’t crease at all and will leave you with a smooth base to put your concealer on.


Find a concealer formula that works for you

Whether it’s in a stick, or liquid, or cream form, find your favourite formula and stick to it. Other people find creamy concealers work for them, while others find liquid or harder formulas work better. None of us have the same eye area, so numerous concealer formulas will react differently for each of us. But once you find that golden one, don’t ever let it go!


Set concealer immediately after

When applying makeup, we usually apply our concealer and do the rest of our makeup without setting anything. But our face moves, and if the concealer isn’t set in place yet, it will move too. So to make sure the makeup that covers your dark circles and highlights your face doesn’t go anywhere, lightly dust powder all over it! You don’t have to bake if you don’t want to because a light dusting will do just as well!

Refresh Your Base

To start off, spruce up your makeup base! But the key to refreshing any makeup base, isn’t to add more foundation on top. If you really lack the time, just take a couple of NIVEA Facial Wipes and wipe off your foundation! The wipes will remove every last bit of foundation, blush, and bronzer on your skin while giving it a good exfoliation to refine and soothe your skin. Best thing about it, you don't have to worry about dry, flaky, or dull looking skin as the wipes are also enriched with natural ingredients to leave your skin hydrated and moisturised. 

Once your skin is fresh and clean, buff on your foundation for natural-looking coverage!

Now for your under eye area, you don’t want to be rough with it because the skin is thinner there. Take the NIVEA Facial Wipes and gently remove your concealer under your eyes. Be extra light handed because you don’t want to be responsible for premature wrinkles and sagging! Let the wipes do all the work for you as its formulated to easily and gently remove waterproof makeup.

After cleaning up your under eye area, just take a brightening concealer and apply it in a “V-shape” to give you that fresh, wide awake look!


Chisel your face with contour

No night time makeup look would be complete without a little bit of contouring! Carve out your features with a neutral shade of brown, and just gently brush it on the hollows of your cheeks, ending it just right at the corner where your eye begins. This subtle contour will make you look fabulous and angular!


Add definition to your eyes

Smoky eyes are a girl’s best friend for the night! However, don’t worry about having to remove your eye makeup, just start with what you’ve got as a base! You can line your waterline with some dark eye pencil, define your lashes with even more mascara, and take your eyeshadow and just smudge it on your lower lash line! Easy, right?


Switch out your lipstick

Last but definitely not the least, quickly remove your MLBB (my lips but better) lipstick shade and swap it for something bold or bright, like fuchsia or a brick red! Bold and bright lips are perfect for the night time because lighting is more forgiving, and it won’t make your lips too stark or “in your face”.
