The eye area is one of the hardest to work with when applying makeup because of how delicate it is. While using too little product won’t cover up those annoying dark circles, using too much can cause creasing under the eyes.
Thanks to TikTok’s treasure trove of beauty tips, a simple yet tried-and-tested two-step hack has emerged to address this beauty conundrum.
All you need is a glowy balm and your favourite concealer, and you’re good to go. Keep reading for the full tutorial!

Two-Step Hack To Prevent Under-Eye Creasing
Step One: Apply Glowy Balm And Concealer On Your Hand
To begin, TikTok beauty guru @taxinoodle melts the glowy balm in her palm. The key is to thoroughly rub the balm into your hands to form a light moisturising film.
Next, apply your favourite concealer to your palm, right next to the glowy balm.
Step Two: Mix The Formulas And Apply Onto Your Under-Eyes
Now, mix the two formulas together, creating what’s essentially a tinted glowy balm.
However, you don’t want to blend the two products entirely. What you should do is take a bit of concealer onto your finger and blend it into the glowy balm film on the outer corners of your palm.
After that, simply apply the mixture onto your under-eye area as you normally would, and voila, no more under-eye creasing.
According to @taxinoodle, while the coverage may be slightly less with this hack, her under-eye is definitely not creasing or feeling dry at all. Just take a look at how luminous and hydrated her under-eye appears!
