Ariane Poole, from London, has worked with some of the biggest names in the world; from royalty to renowned photographers like Mario Testino and David Bailey to her A-list clientele like Penelope Cruz, Christy Turlington and Rachel Weisz.
The renowned beauty artist, who has been at the top of her game for over four decades and has even launched her own beauty range Ariane Poole Cosmetics, has revealed her top concealer cheats for a rested complexion.
International celebrity make-up artist Ariane Poole, from London, has revealed her tips to creating a more youthful complexion. These include tilting your head backwards before applying to dark circles, and testing the colour of the concealer on the skin on your throat
Using a highlighting concealer which contains photo reflective particles to diffuse light, apply in small horizontal lines all the way down your smile lines – starting from the corner of the nose to the base of the chin.
Blending the concealer with your fingers, use light feathering motions, brushing upwards and outwards. The light reflection blurs fine lines and provides a lifting effect, like you’ve had temporary filler.’
‘As we age the prominence of dark circles increases which can give a sallow, sunken, tired appearance to the face. To successfully conceal dark circles tilt your head downwards and look straight into the mirror.
‘So in order to target dark circles you need to go much lower than most people assume, generally speaking your concealer should sit at the top of the orbital bone (bone underneath your eyes) and roughly half way down your nose.’
‘If your dark circles are strong in colour, I would suggest first using a yellow-based creamy concealer which works brilliantly to counteract high colour – whether that’s redness, dark circles or blemishes.’
Tired/ Droopy Eyes
‘A very common concealer mistake I see is women using the wrong shade. If it’s too light for your skin tone, it can leave you looking grey or chalky which actually ages you as it draws attention to the fine lines, wrinkles and the areas you’re trying to conceal.’
‘If it’s too dark you’ll end up looking like a patchwork quilt. This is exactly the reason I created my Concealer Palette, which is made up of three different shades of yellow based creamy concealers.’
