Concealer is a necessary beauty product that everyone should own in their makeup arsenal. It refreshes the eyes while removing dark under-eye circles.
Corrective Makeup (also known as Concealer) serves an aid to give the appearance of even skin. Have you ever noticed a blemish and needed to attend a meeting the next day? If purchased in the right shade, this particular product will eliminate the issue.
A few additional tricks one could use with concealer application includes applying on the eyelids to eliminate shadow flacking; sponge on the bra area for décolletage definition, dab a small amount to the brow bone for highlighting the arch; and shape the lips with a small brush.
One of the most important tips when purchasing a new concealer is selecting the correct shade. It’s a tedious task and if you’re not a makeup enthusiast, please visit the local counter for assistance. Additional suggestions include –
- Use a shade that’s lighter than your natural skin complexion. This is very important when eliminating blemishes or dark spots.
- For brown girls, purchase a concealer in the shade of your undertone (either yellow or orange.) For example, I have red undertones and wear an orange concealer underneath my eyes.
- BUT – for dark circles, go one shade darker than your normal concealer color.
- ALWAYS apply moisturizer, foundation, and then concealer! Do not skip this step because your face could potentially break out or look chalky.
In my opinion, I encourage makeup enthusiasts to use a brush or beauty blender sponge for concealer application. The brush will maneuver inside of the eye crease and Beauty Blender gives a flawless look. Also, let me know (here) what are your favorite concealer brands!
