- A makeup artist has revealed exactly where women should apply their concealer

A makeup artist has revealed the one section of the face you should never apply concealer.
Kat, who heads the Shine Beauty TikTok page, shared a video demonstrating why women over 40 shouldn’t apply makeup under the outer corners of their eyes.
In the clip the makeup artist, from California, smiled briefly to show the tiny creases of her eyes and why concealer does nothing to hide wrinkles.
‘Stop right there if your eyes look like that! Do not put concealer in this area,’ Kat said.
Kat, who heads the Shine Beauty TikTok page, shared a video demonstrating where women should be applying their concealer. She suggests applying the makeup to the inner corners of the eyes only (right) rather than the outer corners (left)
‘First of all, you can’t conceal wrinkles,’ Kat said in the clip.
‘You’re concealing darkness and discolouration, which typically is in this area of your eye (the inner corners).’
Using her two pinkly fingers she pointed to where women should instead apply their makeup to hide impurities – on the inner corners of the eye near the nose where darkness usually starts.
With a brush she pointed once again to the wrinkles and recommended using skin care and a good night eye cream.
In the comments Kat said eye cream differs moisturiser because of the molecule size and the impact is has on mature skin.
‘Eye cream is formulated differently… Ophthalmologist tested. I always use an eye cream,’ she wrote.
The handy video has since been liked more than 8000 times, and hundreds of women found the tips helpful.
‘Love this!’ one person wrote, another added: ‘Totally agree’.
Some would argue it’s best to start using eye cream in your 20s but others suggest early to late 30s.
Pro skin technician and founder of Double Bay salon Karpati Medispa, Eva Karpati, told Marie Claire it’s best to start using eye cream as early as you can to prevent wrinkles.
This is because the delicate skin under the eyes is usually first to show signs of ageing.
