How can I get under eye concealer to not crease or dry out?
How can I get under eye concealer to not crease in my fine lines or dry out? I use moisturizing cream before placing concealer and let it sit for a little bit before placing product. I apply in thin layers and build till it covers the dark areas. I do not use a lot of product and use a fine powder to set it. Been using Bobbi Brown corrector and concealer but not sure I'm liking the effect. Is there a primer or application I should be using? Or should I be using a different concealer?

I love Bobbi Brown Corrector, but it can be pretty drying, especially if your under eye area is dry. You can try a primer or base, but you may just need a more emollient concealer. One that is excellent (and inexpensive) is TheBalm's TimeBalm concealer -- in my experience, it's creamy, it brightens, it covers well and blends beautifully -- no creasing or caking.
Another one that is usually easy to work with is Benefit Erase Paste. It's very creamy, and a little goes a long way. I also like that it brightens in addition to concealing...it's very effecitve at minimizing the appearance of dark circles.
