Concealer is one of the most essential beauty cosmetics for all women.. It’s such an important cosmetic, that you can even skip foundation and simply use concealer to even out skin tone, hide blemishes or acne or cover up dark circles and scars.
But most of the women aren’t sure how to apply it properly. Just use these simple tips to help you master the technique of applying this magical cosmetic!
Find The Right Shade Of Concealer
The first step to using concealer properly is to find the right shade for your skin tone. If you can find the best shade and learn how to blend it properly, you’ll get a flawless look. When looking at concealers, it’s best to find a brand you can test out before you buy it. Test the color on your neck, below your ear. The color should be a little lighter than your foundation.
Don’t forget that if your skin tone changes in the summer (due to sun exposure or tanning) be sure to change your concealer’s color in these days.
Not only should you focus on the color of concealer, but choosing a quality brand is important. Look for dermatologist tested formulas without any fragrance in them. If you are looking for a good quality product that won’t break the bank you can always try Maybelline or Revlon formulas.
Remember, concealer works best when you use sheer layers and build them up gradually to get the look you need. Start by dotting the concealer under your eye areas, on a blemish, on a scar or wherever coverage is needed. Use the pad of your ring finger to tap it into the skin. Never rub the concealer into the skin because it won’t give you the best results. If you don’t get the results you want after this first application, repeat the process.
When you get the result you desire, simply dust a fine loose powder with fluffy round brush over your face to set the makeup.
Now stop worrying about dark circles, acnes and blemishes. Use concealer properly and create your flawless look everyday.
