Mistake: Going Too Heavy on the Concealer

Many women cake on concealer in a mistaken attempt to cover up fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes. But Spackled-on concealer actually highlights lines and wrinkles as it dries and cracks. A better approach is to keep the delicate skin around your eyes moisturized, which will plump the skin to “fill in” the wrinkles. Use a minimal amount of concealer on the inner corners of your eyes only, where your skin is naturally darker. Choose a product with luminosity (like Maybelline’s Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer, $8, walgreens.com), which has the added benefit of lighting up your face, giving it more radiance.
