Makeup enthusiast shares her foolproof guide to preventing under eye creases when applying foundation: ‘I use just two products’

  • Australian woman has shared her foolproof makeup hack for avoiding creases
  • One of the most common areas for creasing to occur is under the eyes
  • Indya shared her genius trick in a makeup-minded Facebook group
  • She puts her setting spray and powder on under her liquid foundation
  • While it’s certainly not the norm she swears by it for a flawless finish 

An Australian makeup aficionado has shared her foolproof hack for preventing under eye creasing by using two special products before applying her foundation.

Indya took to a popular Facebook page on June 24 to share a side-by-side photo of her profile using the trick and not using it to showcase the vast difference.

‘Okay I cannot believe what a difference putting on powder and setting spray under your foundation (instead of over the top) makes to the lines under your eyes and the finish of your makeup,’ she wrote.

It was clear that on the right side the foundation she used, RMS un-cover, and the setting spray, from Charlotte Tilbury, had filled in all of her fine lines and slight wrinkling

It was clear that on the right side the foundation she used, RMS un-cover, and the setting spray, from Charlotte Tilbury, had filled in all of her fine lines and slight wrinkling. 

‘I tried this today with NARS light reflecting foundation today and it was absolutely no bueno – patchy, slidey, gross,’ she continued.

‘RMS was incredible though! I stand by RMS being one of the most underhyped brands Mecca carries, get yourselves a bunch of samples from their range and try it out.’

To complete the original look Indya also used RMS un-cover concealer, Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Filter and Laura Mercier Powder to set the makeup in place. 

She applies the powder first with a light hand before setting her face in place, providing a hint of moisture for the foundation to stick to later. 

Other members of the group were instantly drawn to the hack, with many saying they had tried it before.

‘I’ve done this for years too. The trick is to use the finest powder you can find and to be very, very light with it. Too much and it looks awful,’ one woman replied.

‘That looks great. I find the powder makes my eyes look dry… super keen to try this,’ said another.

A third added: ‘Years ago I used to put liquid foundation on then powder and then a thin sponge layer of liquid foundation again and I thought it sat better with powder underneath. People thought I was weird for doing that.’
