Hi, I'm Christine. I'm a makeup artist and I'm going to show you how to apply makeup for puffy eyes. This is something that you can do every morning just to kind of conceal any sign of no sleep. The things that you'll need are some concealer as well as a concealer brush to apply it. You can use your fingers but I like to use a brush and some loose powder to set it and I like to use a small fluffy brush to apply the loose powder. Let's get started. So the first step is going to be to apply the concealer. I like to just open the concealer and get some on the brush and then apply it under the eye. So we're just going to tap it underneath the eye just to get the product there and then you can go back in with the opposite side of the brush and kind of smooth it in. The brushes are great because it gives you a nice flawless application. It's more sanitary than your fingers. So you want to go from the inner corner all the way out and as close to the lash line as possible and just blend out. This is going to hide any dark circles and kind of even out any puffiness that you may have plus something that's cool like a cream I sometimes keep my concealer in the fridge will help to reduce puffiness as well. The next step is going to be to apply the loose powder on top of the concealer. I always do this because the loose powder will set your concealer and help it from moving and settling in fine lines. So I just take this fluffy brush, dip it in my loose powder and take off any excess and then lightly apply it right on top of that concealer. So you're just going to lightly dust it on top there and this is going to really set it and make it look very natural and smooth, take away any unwanted shine and keep it from settling in your fine lines. And there you go, it's just that easy. That is how you apply eye makeup for puffy eyes. The must have item would be the concealer and I do suggest a little tip would be to keep it in the fridge because that coolness will help to depuff the eyes in the morning. So that's a little tip. Thank you so much for watching. I'm Christine, bye.
