When it comes to doing your own makeup, there is one product that should not be missing in your kit – concealer. This product is a great way to achieve the beautiful and flawless complexion you have always dreamed of. Use it to conceal blemishes or any skin imperfections. However, it is also important to choose the right concealer to get the job done. You would not have thought that choosing a concealer would be so complicated, would you?
Follow the guide below to find the right concealer depending on what you want to cover, as well as additional makeup tips:
Under Eye Concealer: One of the worst makeup faux pas associated with under eye concealers is caking. This often comes as a result of dehyrated skin or using a formula that is too heavy for your skin type. To ensure that this won’t happen to you, use a nourishing cream under your eyes and leave it there as you sleep. Use a sponge or a soft brush when applying the concealer under your eyes. Allow the formula to set for a while before you use your fingers to lightly pat at the product. Apply a small amount of powder over it to help in setting it further. It is important to wait a while because adding powder right away will cause that caked-on finish.
Blemish Concealer: If you have blemishes, use a thick matte cream formula on your concealer. You may also use a powder foundation for this skin type. When applying the foundation directly on the blemished area, use a pointed eye liner brush. Tap it gently over the area. And try to apply minimally. When you use too much product, it will only make the area more obvious.
Redness: When using a concealing product to hide redness on your skin, apply two sheer layers. This does a more effective job at concealing any skin imperfections rather than adding a heavy coat of concealer right away.
