This is a great and natural looking brightener to give you dewy fresh and awake eyes (i have also used it on cheekbones too) i would apply this last no matter what makeup your putting on.
I would still hang on to your concealer though cause this stuff is really thin, it doesn't cover more pronounced discolorations.
hope this helps,

I have a lot of fine lines in this area, so I pretty much always have my eye circles moisturized with one product or another depending on time of day ; ) On top of that, I do my targeted line and pore primer first, then concealer, then foundation -- then the brightener, lightly applied. Then I use my ring fingers to gently blend the brightener with the foundation in that area. It's a pretty sheer product so I can see someone very young or not prone to bags/circles doing fine using it as a concealer, but for me, it works better as its original purpose: a brightener. And a tip --- A little goes a lonnnng way! It will totally cake if you use too much over concealer and foundation!

Here's how I use it: On my minimal makeup days, I moisturize & apply eye cream first, then apply Photo Op to under-eye area (then my liner, mascara, etc). On days when I am less rested and need some additional coverage of under-eye shadows, I follow the Photo Op with concealer and set my face with sheer powder. If you use the Photo Op by itself, it gives a fresh, dewy look. If you use it under concealer, it brightens the total look noticeably but you won't see the shimmer anymore.

I think it would be great for under brow, and cheekbones.

moisturizer, concealer, then this eye brightener product. Follow with loose powder for a matte finish.

Always apply your daily moisturizing routine first before putting on any makeup. You want to prep your skin (wash, toner, moisturize) and then add the makeup so it will stay on better and longer.

I've tried applying this product several ways. Here are my takes/opinions on it:
- Apply your moisturizer as normal, and then primer (optional). Then you can apply this product to your eye area and on your high points of your face: brown bone, bridge of your nose, cupids bow, chin, cheek bones, and a little on your forehead. Then apply your foundation and concealer. It will give you an all over subtle glow.
- Apply your moisturizer and primer as normal. Then your foundation and concealer. Then apply this product where you want it.
Now this is all based on using a cream or liquid foundation. If using a pressed powder or loose powder foundation you'll want to always apply this product first.
I hope I helped!

I would recommend using it last in your eye area (after moisturizer and concealer) even though the box does say to "use before concealer," because the product is very thin and sheer, and I personally find that the Photo Op disappears if I use concealer on top of it. If you don't have dark circles, I would use it instead of concealer.

You probably shouldn't be using the moisturizer so close to your eye, but if it's eye friendly, I would use it on between the moisturizer and the concealer, or in place of the concealer!
