- Eye bags, also known as ” puffy eyes ” is the swelling of tissues under the eyes, caused by fluid buildup. Concealing them will be helpful. Ensure to lightly apply concealer because the skin around the eye is tender and delicate

The next step is making sure that you apply and let the eyeshadow set properly. Cream and liquid eyeshadows need time to dry before you blink. Pencils and creams may need to be set with a finishing powder to stay on better.

Start making a line from outside and slowly move inward. Stop before getting to close toward your nose. Lining the whole perimeter of eyes towards the nose may give a closer and smaller look to your eyes.
