Concealers are one of the most crucial make-up products to have in your vanity. They act as a one stop solution to many problematic areas of the skin. But you may wonder what a concealer is? A Concealer is very similar to a foundation, except it’s generally thicker and hides dark circles, age spots, blemishes and more by camouflaging pigments and blending these imperfections into the skin. Oh, and less is more. A small amount of concealer goes a long way.
So, the next question can arise that why a concealer is so important. Well, just like painting, you need a clean spot free canvas to showcase your make-up artistry upon. Concealers act as a means that makes the canvas of your face clean and clear, making is more accepting to different textures and colours of make-up. It camouflages the pigmentation and spots on the face, bringing the overall complexion to being homogeneous. So now you know, why all the make-up artists around the world emphasize on hoarding the best of concealers.
A concealer can do many jobs when it comes to application. A correct formula and colour can do wonders for your base. Although, use of any given make-up product is subjective, let’s look at some of the prior uses of concealers.
Who likes fine lines? Well nobody! And that is why concealers are the backstage heroes that save the show. You can opt for a formula that can be build up so that you can use just the right amount of it. To make it work, apply a few drops under your eyes or you can use a wand that comes with the packaging and use your ring finger to blend it in. Use very gentle outward strokes so that the skin under your eyes is not damaged or stretched rigorously.
Oh, what definition a contour gives to the face. It transforms the facial features in a more sharp and attractively dimensional way.
To contour the face like a pro, choose a shade that is darker to your skin tone. You can go one or two shades down to your similar shade of concealer. Start by applying to the hollows of your cheeks and the sides of your nose. Start blending the concealer using a beauty blender or a blending brush.
You might want to opt for a formula that is creamy so that it is blend able in the smoothest way. After you are done, use a setting spray to keep all of this in the place.
Love being a night owl? We too!
Be it being up till 2 AM binge watching Netflix or having a gala time being out and about, the aftermath is those grumpy dark circles all around the eyes. Guess what! Grab that concealer and hide it all.
You can use a brightening concealer because it acts like an optical illusion making your under-eye area appear more radiant and awake. Talking about the all-nighters that go without sleeping at all, just dab a little bit of a shimmery eye shadow in the corners of the eyes and they pop up.
One of the easiest ways to get a radiant glow all year round is to use concealer on your cheekbones. Yes, you heard it right, you can use a concealer to highlight the high points of your face.
Pick up a shade that is one or two shades lighter than your skin tone and sweep it on the parts of the face that you want to emphasize upon. You can highlight your brow bones, cheeks, the bridge of your nose, cupid’s bow and anywhere where the light falls first on your face.
This is probably the most universal use of a concealer and mostly concealers are bought for this one step. Blemishes are the foes of flawless make-up. Wearing makeup on barrier damaged and acne-prone skin might sound a little problematic. You can build a base that hides these problem areas. All you need to do is apply the concealer using a sponge or concealer brush to avoid getting dirt and oil from your hands on to your face.
This one is more of a trick. Concealer can act as an excellent primer for your eyeshadow and lipstick. It fills in the creases seamlessly and creates a base that is even for the smooth application of the product. This step also helps in keeping your eyeshadow and lipstick stay put for a longer period of time.
You can dab some of it, depending on the coverage that you seek, on your lips and eyelids. Gently smooth across using your fingers in a very gentle manner and done!
