Yep. There’s a technique to it! The best eye cream application starts with the right amount of product. You know how eye cream comes in tiny jars? It’s because you don’t need much. Three to four small dollops the size of the tip of your pinky finger are plenty.

Place the cream along the top of your orbital bone (or eye socket, the bone just above your cheekbone) and towards your hairline. Then, gently pat it into your skin, using your ring finger—the muscles in your ring finger are the weakest, so you’re less likely to pull or tug at the gentle skin around your eye. Let eye cream absorb for five to 10 minutes before applying makeup.
