DIY Monday: Undereye/Salmon Concealer

 Having a terrible case of dark under eye circles is probably the worst thing that I have inherited from my mother. When I was younger, I swear  I feel hella proud with it. For me it was like sporting a Wednesday Adam look. Now, I look effortlessly haggard and stressed even early in the morning. #Kaloka Well, I have found the best concealing technique to say bye bye to dark circles. Here is my blog post about it:

Using an orange concealer has been life changing but it has definitely added a few minutes to my everyday makeup routine. I thought of buying a new salmon concealer which works as a corrector and concealer in one but I decided to do a DIY concealer instead. I have too many makeup in my kit why not make use of them to the fullest, right? Yes.. effort ulit itey! haha 
These are the things I used for this project. As a substitute for the orange concealer, you may use a matte orange eyeshadow (powderized) or an orange lipstick (quickly melt it under a very low heat). 

The things you need:
1. Orange pigment/eyeshadow/no shimmer lipstick/concealer
2. Long Lasting Foundation or BB Cream (Preferably oil free and one that has a good and thick coverage)
3. Silicone based primer (Optional)
4.Eye Cream (Optional)
4. Small jar and spatula for mixing

I bought the jar at Daiso for 66 pesos. It came with 2 jars, 2 bottles, a spatula and a siphon tube. 
I scooped out the orange concealer and melted it under low heat. Make sure you start with a small amount of orange pigment or concealer to control the shade. You do not want to end up with just a lighter version of orange concealer. Also, if you put a lot of orange, it is really hard to correct.
Then, I added a long lasting liquid foundation. I chose my Revlon Colorstay and I also added Estee Lauder Stay Matte Double Wear Liquid Foundation. Again, the amount depends on the shade you want to achieve. 
I decided to add a silicone based primer to prevent my DIY concealer from  creasing and seating on the fine lines under my eyes. I also added a small amount of eye cream to prevent dryness and caking. Make sure to mix the ingredients carefully and thoroughly.

Here is a swatch of my DIY undereye concealer:

I just dab a few dots and work my way around my eyes in a patting motion. It did covered my dark circles really well, don't you think?
Did it last long?
Well, here is a picture of my under eye after 5 hours.
The photo speaks for itself. Ohh,, just take note that I have dry skin. You may tweak the formula or the ingredients I suggested to suit your skin type.

Have a blessed day to all.
