The concealer is a crucial makeup product in 2021. It is similar to foundation except it is generally thicker. Moreover, it hides dark circles, age spots, blemishes and pigments by blending such imperfections into the skin. Indeed, similar to any other makeup product, the goal is to apply it with prowess. As such, below, we have highlighted how and where you can apply the concealer.
Do Not Over Apply
Some people think that when they over apply the concealer makeup they will be able to cover up imperfections. However, the bitter reality is that over-application will attract more attention to the spots you are trying to hide. Instead, apply a thin layer of concealer to start and add a little more only if necessary.
Start with the Foundation then the Concealer
Always apply foundation first before applying concealer. Indeed, applying the concealer before the foundation is one of the major facial makeup mistakes.
Prime Eyelids with Concealer
First, prime your eyelids to create a smooth and even base for your eye makeup. Afterward, proceed with the eye concealer application. For sure, this strategy act as a perfect substitute if you are trying to draw attention from your eyes.
Carefully Cover Blemishes
Furthermore, the concealer comes in handy every time you want to cover blemishes. For instance, if you have red spots or acne, concealer is the best option for covering the spots. To apply, use a clean brush to apply the product over the blemishes.
Brighten Dull Areas with Concealer
As much as the concealer seeks to diminish the less desirable regions of the face, you can also use it to brighten the dull areas. Simply, use a color correcting concealer on your face to brighten the dull areas; use one to two shades lighter than your skin tone on the key spots. On the contrary, if the concealer is for glowing purposes, apply it on key spots such as above your cheekbones, on the center of your forehead, and in the middle of your chin.
Clean Up Your Eyebrow Shape
Additionally, concealers come in handy when you want to flatter your natural eyebrows. Simply, draw your eyebrows in a professional way whereby they appear natural. Afterward, use feathered strokes to mimic your natural eyebrows using a spoolie brush then dip a small makeup brush into the concealer and apply it on the top and bottom edges of your eyebrows. Your eyebrows will definitely appear set and in place.
Contour Your Visage
Furthermore, you can now achieve sculpted cheekbones thanks to the concealer. It provides one with the ability to carve cheekbones by contouring with a product that is a couple of shades darker than your skin tone. As such, apply stripes of your concealer down the sides of your nose, below your cheekbones, on your temples, and along your jawline, then blend out with a makeup sponge. You will certainly achieve that sculpted look.
