How to apply under eye concealer the right way

  1. Apply your foundation first - it might seem alien to some of you, but it's a make-up artist approved tip provides the perfect base for your concealer
  1. Pat on your concealer instead or swiping or smearing it. This will keep your concealer from caking or creasing in those pesky fine lines
  1. Draw a triangular shape. Instead of swiping a curved shape under your eye, try drawing an inverted triangle, with the base at your eye, to brighten up your entire face.
  1. Prime your eyelids. Did you know you can prime your eyelids ready for eyeshadow with concealer? Give it a go next time you're doing your make-up routine
  1. Find a peachy tone. Peachy or orange toned concealers cancel out the blue tone of under eye bags, so try to find one with a peachy undertone when you're looking at shades
