Correct & Brighten

18 May

Don’t get me wrong, I can’t live without my concealer, but I think having a brightening pen is a really great addition to your beauty bag!  I like to use Trish McEvoy Correct & Brighten Pen ($40  It is best to use under your eyes to help get rid of dark circles and shadows that can be cast in this area.  It really brightens your eyes and makes your eye color pop!  You can put it on over concealer if you want a lot of coverage or use it in the place of concealer.  You can use it to cover any blemishes or contour any features such as your nose or cheek bones.  After I started using it I began to feel like I looked “dead” without it.  It really “wakes up” my face and makes my eyes look better.  Even if you don’t wear makeup, this will just liven you up” a bit and even you out.  It helps to diminish fine lines and wrinkles and if you have dark circles, they will be  gone in a flash!

    Hi Kate – the tip of the pen doesn’t show any color. Is this nude colored like a concealer? Can you help explain why would you use a concealer and this as well – that seems like double duty… But I’ve been having such issues w/ my undereye that I’d love to hear what you think. Thanks!

      Hey Amy,
      It is nude like concealer. It comes in 3 shades, I have the middle shade 1.5 which they say is universal. If you wanted to use both concealer and this, it would be double duty, it would just provide more coverage on days when you feel like you really need it. Some people really like a “heavy” makeup look, I have been wearing it alone and it has been fine. I recommend putting it on the back of your hand and using your ring finger to apply it. Let me know if you want to go down and look at it!
