Conceal, Conceal, Conceal

One of the greatest questions and concerns people mention is the eye area and how to best conceal. Signs of aging show up in the eyes, neck, and hands the most. Skin is fine, thin, and there's not as much circulation so sallow looking skin can show up as well.

My biggest tip for concealing is this:

Apply a light eye-gel to your concealing cream for smooth glide and application and to prevent creasing and caking. You can also add a touch of yellow food color to your eye-cream (Notice I said a touch) to neutralize dark circles & puffiness.

My favorite eye creams & concealers can be found at:

1. Erno Laszlo

2. Clinique

3. Shiseido

Just as seasons change each and every year, and we dress accordingly, our hair, skin and basic beauty needs also change season to season.

4. Moisturize

1. Begin cleansing the skin - either manually or with a cleaning device. My personal favorite is to do a manual cleanse first to remove congestion sitting ON the skin, then follow up with Clarisonic's facial cleansing device (see clarisonic.…
