In my experience with make up, the concealer is the most important item for the daily production. It is the “lifeguard” when we had slept badly and realise we woke up with huge shadows under the eyes. The concealer is able to disguise any imperfection in our face.
To use it in order to get a beautiful and natural effect in your skin it is good to pay attention in some special tips – in the moment you are buying one and in the moment you are applying it. I’ve listed those tips below, according to what I’ve learned by myself, in my daily make up, and I’ll tell you. Give a try and see the results!
The concealer needs to be exactly in your skin’s hue – not darker, not even clearer than that. If you buy it clearer, the effect in your make up gets exaggerated; on the other hand, if you buy it darker than in your skin, the areas you want to disguise will get highlighted. Besides, it is really strange when your face gets a different color than your neck and rest of the body, right!?
When you’re buying a new concealer, do not listen to some sellers who say for you to test the product in the back of your hand. You won’t use the concealer in that region, besides, the color of the back of your hand is different from your face. So do the test in your face and end of story.
I’ve already spoke about that in the post I’ve wrote about make up tips for a natural beauty, but I will repeat. The best way of applying the concealer is by giving little slaps with fingertips in your face – and not by scrubbing the product in the area, the same you do when you are applying some hydrating cream. That’s because the concealer composition may cause your skin’s scaling when you scrub it. With the little slaps the application gets uniform and more natural. Those are the areas where you should apply the concealer:
Even though some people like to use the concealer instead of foundation, the ideal is to apply it before you covered all your face with some foundation that fits your skin’s hue. The concealer makes a better result when applied in some specific regions of your face, in order to improve your make up.
If you want to cover the shadows under the eyes, for example, you can apply the concealer beyond the region of the eyes, next to the temples. And there is more: apply the concealer in a triangle movement, like a “V”, under the eye, not in a “U” format, as usually people think they should do:
Have you ever heard about colored concealers? They have specific textures to disguise blemishes, acnes or other imperfections that may be darker than your skin’s hue. Apply a little bit of the green concealer, for example, to disguise the acne and then apply your normal concealer one, in the same color of your skin, right after. Finalize with compact powder.
Once you’ve applied the concealer all over your face, in the areas you want to, it is time to apply the enlightening. Do it in strategic regions, such as frontal extension of the nose and temples to a perfect finalization.
I hope you enjoy those tips. See you in the next post!
