Here’s the deal. Often times, makeup artists will use a translucent powder under the eye to set concealer and brighten under the eye. It’s a great beauty tip that also helps eyeliner from running. I like to use Laura Mercier’s Secret Brightening Powder.
I usually apply it with a brush, but if you aren’t careful and don’t blend it well, you get the reverse raccoon look you see Eva and other celebrities with sometimes. The powder looks completely normal to the naked eye, but if not blended properly, it shows up in photos.
Blend, blend, blend ladies!
