About the Expert
Hi, my name is Kathryn Fernandez, and I'm a makeup artist in Los Angeles. I'm going to show you how to make your eyes look less puffy with eye shadow. After several hours of working, you can imagine that your eyes become tired. The tools that you're going to need for this are a little bit of cream eye shadow, just a simple cream and also a depuffing agent and a shadow brush. Let's get started. The first thing that you're going to do is using your depuffing agent, you're going to put some on your fingers and actually pat it into your eyes. And what this does is it actually helps rehydrate underneath your eyes so that it will actually reduce some of the puffing that occurs when you're tired. Now notice that I'm patting because I don't want to remove any of the makeup that's already there. This product is great because of the fact that I can actually place it on top of makeup that already is there. Once it's actually worked into the skin your skin will absorb it, the natural reduction of puffiness will occur. Then, to seal it, so that no more of your makeup moves, you're simply going to do a simple wash of the basic white eye shadow using your shadow brush and just go underneath and create a simple wash of color that will really help bring your eye back out to its place and help your eye pop out so you can look well rested. So again, I'm just doing an even wash of color just to really help balance out the dimensions and shadows of the eye to give the appearance of well rested. That's how you reduce the appearance of puffiness with eye shadow. Thanks for watching.
