Concealer Beauty Tips

Concealer Beauty Tips

1. For a natural look, apply concealer after you've applied your foundation. This way you don't end up applying too much, since your foundation will cover most of the discolorations first.

2. To get a perfect colour match every time, mix a drop of your foundation into your concealer before applying.

3. Want extra, long lasting coverage with your concealer? Apply a touch of loose powder into your concealer before you apply it. This will keep it from creasing later in the day. You'll find you'll also need less product.

4. A model once told me she uses a Concealer Pencil on her lips first. She fills in the lip, and then applies an old, dark lipstick. The concealer pencil lightens up the lipstick shade by about 3-4 shades. To make current, she applies a top coat of lip gloss. A great way to modernize a favorite dark shade.

5. Have dark blue under eye circles? Make sure your concealer is on the peach side, to calm down blue tones. 15. Have dark gray under eye circles? Make sure your concealer is on the pink side, to calm down gray.

6. Have a concealer that is too creamy? Or creases just hours after you've applied it? Apply with the tips of your fingers so that the heat of your hand melts the product into the skin more. Then take a kleenex  and lightly press any excess concealer off. You're mostly pressing oils from the concealer, which helps with creasing later.

7. Have a double does of darkness under your eyes? Do a double application. Take your concealer and apply lightly, then a layer of foundation, then a layer of concealer on top of that. Press with a kleenex to press out extra oils and then powder.  Sometimes a bit more is all that's needed
