    @SweetiePie: I don’t want to sound creepy but I’d love to see your look put together if you are open to posting a pic of yourself, but totally understand if not!

    @starchild: not creepy, haha. I just hope it looks good! I feel like I never photograph as well as I (think) I look. Haha. Makeup wise I mean.
    I’ll try to wall you a photo tomorrow! I don’t want to post my face on a public thread.

    @starchild: In addition to an actual concealer, one thing you can add in is a corrector. I use an apricot colored one on my eye area before I put on the concealer because I have very dark lids and blue toned under eye circles. It adds an extra layer of coverage and you don't have to put on quite so much concealer.

    I also watched a few make up artist videos on applying concealer and I learned I wasn't using enough of applying it correctly.

    @SweetiePie: Thanks!

    @looch: That sounds exactly like me. My undereyes look purple on really bad days. I just struggle with adding more steps in the morning, but do you feel like you're able to do your routine quickly once you get the hang of it? I saw your post on the first page and it seems like a lot of steps but sounds like it would look great. Also feel free to send pics!

    @bees_knees: Thanks I will try that! That's been the most frustrating thing to me b/c I see all these videos and eveyone just seems to be able to get SO much product in one swipe and I'm always struggling!

    @starchild: I've learned that I need to layer products to get the best results. I also have tweaked the application, so for the foundation step, I use one of those new toothbrush style brushes (look up Artis) and that cut the time I spent applying and blending foundation in half.

    @snowjewelz: I totally agree! the hairdryer helps a lot! Or I’ll just blow hot air on it (like...when you’re trying to fog a mirror? I don’t know how to explain it ) if I don’t have my hair dryer out.
