the triangle of light
The Triangle of Light Technique is something that I’ve been road testing for a week now and I think I’m totally converted to the geometric side. Ideal for banishing tired eyes and covering up dark circles all tile giving a natural wide awake glow.
First I prep my eye area with some eye cream -My under eyes have been incredibly dry recently so I’ve been reaching for my Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream as a moisturising base. Then I draw an upside down triangle under my eyes using the iconic YSL Touche Eclat. I’m still on the fence if I’m 100% sold on it, but similar products include the By Terry Touche Veloutte or the new Estee Lauder BB Glow Concealer. Basically for this step you need to use some sort of brightening/lighting concealed. I then blend in with a ring finger or a sponge like the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. Now I’ll decide if I need to repeat the step with an additional concealer depending on the amount of coverage I need or just move straight on to adding my foundation.
… And Voila! Bags be gone! This is a great little highlighting and concealing trick which works wonders on us that like to stay up all night on Netflix!
