Enhance your complexion with the untapped potential of concealer. Dark circles, dark spots, and unwanted blemishes are all avoidable with the help of a well-chosen concealer. There are so many shades and varieties to choose from: sticks, powders, liquids and creams. Here are some simple, techniques to choose and use the ideal concealer.
Highlighting or adding clarity? Stick with a lighter tone. Dark spots and pimples are better conquered by a neutral shade, slightly darker than your natural skin color.
Ideal shades vary depending on the order foundation and concealer are applied. If you’re using concealer over liquid or cream foundation, first try covering the area with foundation. Still struggling to get that perfect look? Try a concealer closer to your natural skin pigment.
Summer season means darker skin tones. Don’t forget to match the concealer shade to the season.
Apply powder last. Always. It helps your makeup last longer and prevents caking. Concealer goes on first when you use a powder foundation. Using a liquid or cream foundation? Concealer comes after. Finish up with a face powder.
Liquid foundation ⇒ Concealer
Concealer ⇒ Powder foundation
Make sure you apply the appropriate shade if you’re only using a concealer. Blend it well with the surrounding skin to ensure a natural-looking finish. Foundation will give you a flawless veil effect that you can’t achieve solely with concealer. A combination of concealer and foundation is ideal. Scared of an unnaturally thick appearance? Apply lighter amounts of both concealer and foundation — you’ll easily get that well-balanced, organic finish. Adding Blush and face color on top of foundation and concealer gives your skin a desirable, healthy appearance with a refined texture.
Avoid using too much product on areas prone to oiliness. Apply concealer as needed after working in a liquid foundation. Concealer tends to cake on oily skin, so powder as a finishing touch is key.
Worried about dark circles? Add impact to the eyes with eye makeup like eyeliner, eye shadow, and mascara. Let your flawless eyes enjoy the limelight.
Dark spots and blemishes disappear when you spread foundation lightly in the direction of the face line. Orange-hued blushes are also a good choice for eliminating dark spots.
