How to conceal dark circles and puffiness with your Sisley makeup

Dark circles and puffiness, which are accentuated by fatigue and the passing of time, impact the radiance of the eye area and complexion, leaving the face looking wrinkled and tired. To reduce them, it is essential to choose specific textures and formulas rich in pigments and skincare active ingredients that will smooth and illuminate the eye contour. Discover how to conceal dark circles and reduce puffiness in a few steps.

Sisley's expert guide for concealing dark circles and puffiness

Use suitable products

As the eye contour is an extremely sensitive and delicate area with thin skin that displays wrinkles early, it deserves the greatest care. Morning and evening, apply specific eye care after your moisturising routine and before makeup. If you apply makeup, remove all traces of eyeshadow, concealer and mascara before going to bed using a formula designed for the eye contour area.

Be gentle

When you remove your makeup, there is no need to apply excessive pressure. Leave a cotton pad soaked in product on the eye for a few seconds, then gently wipe to remove the makeup. If you like rich textures, use a cleansing balm or gel made for massaging into the eye area and face with the fingertips. Their formulas will effectively remove pigments and impurities while leaving skin comfortable.

Choose the right shade

When it comes to concealing dark circles and puffiness, the shade matters just as much as the formula. Have purple under-eye circles? Use a yellow shade. Choose an orangey undertone for blue circles or a pinkish undertone for brown circles.

Decongest the eye contour

Puffiness is caused by a build-up of lymph or fat under the eye, which means that blood and lymph flow are slower than they should be. Activate them by tapping gently with your fingertips, or use a massage tool suited to the eye area.

Once your eye contour cream has absorbed, decongest the area with a cold accessory, then apply concealer using a Sisley makeup brush and add some to the upper eyelid to even out the skin, if needed.

Brightening makeup

Massage your eye contour with a suitable accessory, then apply an anti-ageing skincare product designed for this area. Use the makeup brush to work the concealer over the dark circle or under-eye bag and the upper eyelid. This step helps to even out the skin and visually reduce the signs of ageing and fatigue, which dull the eye area. Finish with a touch of highlighter under your eyebrow and on the upper cheekbone to brighten up your eyes.
