Both mine and Bobby’s favorite skincare item is probably Buddha Eye Cream, and we have a couple of tips for you if you happen to own one! Both are Bobby’s ideas so I can’t take the credit, I can only enthusiastically agree that they work!
1. Try applying a thick layer of the cream under your eyes and up around the outside corner. By thick I mean about 1 pump divided on two eyes. You don’t want a layer that is so thick that you can’t see your skin underneath, but you don’t want the cream instantly absorbed either. Pat it on gently with a fingertip and then leave it. The cream will absorb by itself within a few minutes and really tighten up the area. I love it!
2. Try mixing Buddha with your mineral foundation for a perfect concealer. Since it absorbs so easily into your skin it is easy to work with, i.e. you don’t have to work it so much, you just pat it on and the look us super natural. Bobby explained that the less you have to work with a concealer the better. When Bobby called me to share the tip (right away when he had discovered it of course! That is so Bobby! I tried it while we were still on the phone (that is so me!) and it was gorgeous even as a full face foundation. Soft, dewy and still good coverage.
Try it and let us know what you think!
