Anyone who’s ever worn makeup has had creasy under-eye concealer at some point. Even if you have no fine lines or texture in sight, it’s a tricky area to cover up with the way our eye contours naturally move. Sure, tons of concealers in the market claim to be the exception—and many do get the job done—but at the end of the day, it boils down to one simple solution: hydration, hydration, hydration.
Where makeup fails, skincare makes up for tenfold. To avoid creasy under-eyes for good, grab your camo of choice and follow this quick eye cream “cocktail” tutorial below. Featuring Benefit’s bestselling It’s Potent Eye Cream, no less!
HOW TO MIX YOUR OWN CONCEALER COCKTAIL
STEP 1: CHOOSE AN EMOLLIENT EYE CREAM
In order for this hack to work, not just any eye cream will do—you need a rich formula that’s thick enough to hold the pigment in the concealer and emollient enough to easily blend out. Here, we used the Benefit It’s Potent Eye Cream for its creamy texture. Made with hydrating peptide complex, it injects even the driest concealers with ample moisture.

STEP 2: MIX IT WITH EQUAL PARTS CONCEALER Dispense an equal amount of concealer and eye cream. Using your fingers, mix them in circular motions on the back of your hand, until no trace of eye cream is left.
STEP 3: APPLY ACROSS YOUR UNDER-EYES Dot the mixture across your under-eye, from the inner to the outer corner. This will ensure even coverage.
STEP 4: BLEND WITH YOUR FINGERTIPS Lastly, skip the makeup brushes and use your fingertips instead to blend out the mixture. The heat from your fingers will allow the solution to better melt into your skin, creating a more seamless and natural finish.
