how to apply concealer?

Concealer is a type of makeup used to cover up blemishes, dark circles under the eyes and other skin .

During the makeup concealer is used in order to conceal camouflages dark circles, tiny lines, and minor blemishes, pimples, scars, under-eye circles, redness around the nostrils, broken blood vessels, dark inner corners of eyes, etc which cannot be covered with a few thin layers of foundation. Concealer can be apply with sponges, brushes, or fingertips, in a thin layer and then add more thin layers if necessary.

Make sure a concealer or make up matches your skin. See how it looks in bright light or sunlight. It should blend so well that it seems transparent on the skin, yet it hides the desired areas. A more natural look is when you use sheer layers. Here are some tips to get the best results out of concealer:

  • Put a small amount on your fourth fingertip. Dot it on and move from the outside corner of the eye inward, and back out again.
  • Red or pink toned skin types should use concealers with a green undertone. You can also add a small amount of green eye shadow if you can’t find the right shade.
  • Concealer can be used over or under foundation, whichever way you choose, be sure to blend, blend and blend. While you are blending, be gentle to your skin.
  • Those with dark under-eye circles or blue toned skin types should use a yellow or peach toned concealer to neutralise the darker tones.
  • Don’t use concealer on freckles and pigmentations unless you really need to because they may require heavier layers which could make them look worse.
  • Your concealer should be the exact shade as your foundation. If you can’t find the right tone, buy a shade lighter. If you don’t use foundation, concealer must match your skin tone.
  • When it comes to dark circles, use your fingertips for the under eye area. Use a shade lighter than your foundation if they are recessed. Use a bit darker if they are puffy.
  • Concealer should always be applied before foundation. Make sure your skin is cleansed and moisturised, as concealer tends to settle into fine lines on dry skin.
