Deep Wrinkle Concealer
Best Undereye Concealer Method for Smoothing Wrinkles
Wrinkles and fine lines can be concealed easily with makeup. You will want to use a deep wrinkle concealer and a deep wrinkle filler to cover them naturally and flawlessly.
Wrinkles- the bane of every woman’s existence, whose onset we fear more than death, and that which compels us to spend every last dime in search of a proper cure.
It is discouraging to look in the mirror and realize that you are starting to form fine lines, and even more discouraging to notice deeper wrinkles.
Fortunately, hiding the fine lines and wrinkles with proper makeup application needn’t seem impossible.
You can even practice covering them while applying retinoid treatments while you sleep to erase them completely.
Using two makeup artist product favorites and a couple of makeup techniques for aging skin, you can easily cover any lines without looking cakey or unnatural.
The first and most natural step in this process is to make sure that your skin is staying hydrated. Remove all of your makeup at night, use a wrinkle cream if desired, drink plenty of water and use a moisturizing lotion daily to plump up your cells.
Best Anti Wrinkle Products in Makeup
Once you have this simple daily routine down pat, you are ready to physically cover your wrinkles. One makeup artist approved product and my personal favorite is the Benefit Porefessional Pro Balm, a thick balm that is used to cover lines and large pores.
I bought this product about a year ago and I must say that I absolutely love it.
It is truly the only product I have found that smoothes lines and works as a deep wrinkle concealer.
The product is creamy and thick, much thicker than a typical face primer. This and its translucent nude color helps it completely fill in wrinkles before you apply your makeup.
When I found this product at the Sephora in my city, I wasn’t sure that anything could work as well as they said.
Fortunately, Sephora carries a sample for just about everything so I was able to test the product on my hand.
Much to my surprise, those deep wrinkles in the palm of my hand were significantly diminished by just a small amount of the balm.
Applying Deep Wrinkle Concealer
Start with a clean and moisturized face, allowing your moisturizer about 10-15 minutes to soak in. Squeeze a small amount of Pro Balm onto your ring finger, and carefully dab the product over the entire area you wish to cover.
Add a tiny bit more to your finger, and then work the product in again using very small circular motions. I would also suggest using a bit of this balm over your entire face to cover the smallest lines, and then focusing more aggressively on the true wrinkles.
Let the balm settle for about five minutes. The next step is to apply foundation. If you have aging skin or fine lines, it is important to choose a foundation that won’t make this even more noticeable.
Luminous liquid foundations and creme-to-powder’s are great options. I would recommend using a damp sponge to apply these over your face and neck to create the most youthful skin.
A damp sponge will apply the liquid in a semi-sheer but still covering way while making your skin still look natural. You never want to appear as if you have caked on makeup to hide your face.
Once your foundation is dry, use a setting powder if you feel necessary. You probably won’t need one if you use a creme-to-powder foundation, or if you have naturally dry skin. If you feel like you need a little extra coverage of your wrinkle, dab a bit more balm onto the area and rub in light small circles.
Illuminizer is A Great Deep Wrinkle Concealer
The last step in concealing deep wrinkles is to use a face illuminator to highlight your skin and bring the eyes away from any prone areas. Mary Kay face illuminator is the best product I have come across, and is pretty affordable at about $20 per tube.
This liquid illuminator reflects light off of the area it is placed, giving you a gorgeous dewy bronze glow and deflecting attention from areas you would like to hide.
I would avoid putting this product on your nose and forehead, as you don’t want to look shiny. I personally use this product on the apples of my cheeks and on my cheekbones, as well as lightly under my eyes.
Don’t worry if you are pale and bronzer typically doesn’t work for you. I am very pale and this illuminizer has never made my skin look unnatural.
The shimmer in this product is so fine that it is difficult to tell that it is a makeup product and not simply your own youthful skin. I was really impressed by this as I don’t typically wear any body or face glitter and always go sparingly on the shimmery eye makeups.
This three step process works very well as a deep wrinkle concealer without looking unnatural. The thick balm covers them, a semi-sheer liquid makeup blends out your skin tone evenly, and dewy luminizing liquid reflects light to make your skin appear young and pristine.
