Makeup concealer is excellent for matching skin tone, but sometimes it is not enough. If you have uncomfortable spots, dark spots or an uneven skin tone that you can't cover, concealer will be a useful tool in your makeup routine.

 


There are several concealer styles and colors, so first analyze your skin to determine your needs. Do you want to cover up your acne? Dark circles under your eyes? Scars or birthmarks? Once you define what you want to cover, you can choose the right color and shade. Use the color palette to help you define which color concealer to use. Use the opposite color from the palette to cancel.


  • The green concealer is used to reduce redness.
  • Yellow concealer is for lightening the face.
  • Lavender concealer is for matching a yellow-toned complexion.
  • Orange or red conceal purple or dark spots
  • For scars or dark circles under your eyes, use a concealer that is 1-2 shades lighter than your natural skin tone. Define whether your skin tone is cool or warm before choosing a shade. Try not to buy a shade that is too light, otherwise, your complexion will look ashy.
  • Test the concealer shade on your face, not your hands, to see if the color really matches your complexion. Be sure to try concealer without any makeup first.

These products come in many different forms. They come in sticks, cream, and pencils. These presentations offer different types of coverage and some may be better for certain skin types than others.


  • If you have large pores and oily skin, you should avoid cream or stick concealers because they make your pores look larger. Look for a liquid concealer instead.
  • Use a pencil concealer for acne, as the tip will help make it easier to apply around the pimples. Thicker cream concealers are also effective, as they can mold and blend over a pimple.

Before applying concealer, wash your face with a mild facial cleanser and apply a moisturizer. Use a makeup remover and swab to remove any residue that may have been left by previous mascara applications. Concealer is the first step in applying makeup, and it will be more evenly applied on a blank canvas.

 

 

Use a concealer brush or your fingertips (the first option is more sanitary) to apply concealer under your eyes with light strokes. Apply concealer in the shape of an upside-down triangle. Trace a triangle from one end of your eye to the other so that the lower end reaches the crease of your nose. Blur the edges of the concealer so that there is no noticeable change in tone between your skin and the product.



  • Never rub concealer around your eyes, because the skin in this area is easily damaged. Just blur it out by lightly touching it with your fingertips or brush. Light touches are more effective at covering than rubbing.
  • Apply the product to the walls of your nose if you have sunken eyes. This area is often neglected when applying concealer, making the person appear sleepy.
  • Be sure to apply it to the entire base of the lash line (directly below the inner eye line).
  • Applying U-shaped drops of the product will look less natural and may be visible in photographs.

If you have acne, dark spots, sun spots, scars or birthmarks, now is the time to cover them up. Apply light touches of concealer to each mark and then gently blur it out. Apply a thin layer of the product to prevent makeup from looking mushy. Apply more as needed.


  • If you have acne, avoid using your fingers to smudge the concealer. Your fingers can spread bacteria that will aggravate the acne problem. Also, this will melt the concealer, which will decrease its coverage. Instead, use a clean makeup brush.
  • If you're using concealer to cover a larger area (to cover rosacea, for example), apply a very thin layer and blend the edges well. The more concealer you apply, the more likely it is to be visible throughout the day. You can fix the concealer with powders to keep it looking natural all day long.

When you're sure that all dark spots or dark circles under your eyes are covered and blurred, apply a layer of foundation on top of the concealer. To kill two birds with one stone, use a loose or compact foundation. You can also use a cream or liquid foundation, but you'll need to add more fixing powder to it.


  • Spread the foundation all over your face. Use a large brush to apply translucent foundation powder over the foundation to set it for about 12 hours.
  • Use a brush to reach the corners of your eyes and below the lash line. Be sure to cover every part of your face that has concealer.
  • With a light touch, apply a little more powder to the parts that have concealer to make sure it doesn't run during the course of the day.

Applying concealer and foundation evens out the complexion completely, but also removes natural shadows or tanned areas of skin. Apply a bronzer to your cheekbones, the inner curves of your nose, and around the perimeter of your face to add dimension to your makeup.


While not everyone has a natural pink cheek tone, it is normal to have some color on your face. Apply one to achieve this effect on the colorless foundation of your makeup.


To add blush, smile and brush the product onto your cheekbones. Blend in the direction of the temples.


To add depth to your makeup, apply a creamy or powdery highlighter over your cheekbones, under your eyebrows and at the corners of your eyes. This way, your face, and all your makeup will stand out.


It's likely that with all the makeup you've applied, some of it will have fallen on your eyebrows and look a little dull. Fill them in so that they look naturally dark and attention is drawn to your eyes and the shape of your face.


Make sure the concealer is nearly the same as your skin tone because if your complexion is too dark, it will be visible during the day you are wearing concealer, as orange areas will show.


Choose a concealer well to match an uneven skin tone. Remove all makeup before going to bed. Leaving your makeup on all night dries out your skin, clogs your pores, and increases your chances of getting pimples or other skin irritations.
