5 Ways You Can Grow Your Makeup Creativity Using CONCEALER

ninoula belle

Sometimes only applying foundation to even your skin tone is not enough. Concealer can be a helpful tool in your makeup routine especially if you have dark spots, any annoying pimples, or patchiness that you’d like to cover. Concealer is not meant to be used to cover your entire face rather is used in small quantity on small areas of you face. For example, concealer is used around your nose or under your eyes to conceal a scar or blemish. For lighter coverage, concealer is used before applying foundation. For thick coverage, foundation is applied first and concealer over it.

First of all, before applying any concealer, wash your face with a good face wash and then apply a moisturizer. The first step in makeup application should be your concealer, and will go on most smoothly over a blank canvas.

Choosing the Right Type of Concealer

Concealers come in many different types depending on the skin type. These are liquid, cream, pen, pencil, and balm concealers. The best concealer for you depends on your skin problems. Some concealers are better for concealing blemishes and some work best for covering dark circles under the eyes, and others specialize in evening out skin tone. Women with dry skin don’t go for a concealer with a matte finish as it will make dryness worse. It could also make dry patches of skin visible, which nobody wants. Woman with large pores or oily skin should not use cream or stick concealer because these can clog pores and tend to add an oily shine.

Pencil concealers are generally designed for small blemishes as they are cream based products. A multipurpose concealer is used to cover highlights, imperfections and defines lips.

Liquid concealer is best for most skin types (oily to normal) except very dry skin. This type of concealer is best for light to medium coverage. It is best to conceal the under-eye area. Most of these concealers keep your skin moisturized because of hydrating agent present in them. For smooth finish use a beauty brush with a liquid concealer.

Cream concealer is known for its thicker texture and is best for hydrating normal, dry, or combination skin. Because of its thick texture, it can give unnatural look so you have to be very careful while blending it. First use a sponge applicator or concealer brush to apply the concealer on your face, blend it with a tool and then use loose powder for more staying powder. If you have sensitive or breakout-prone skin, then use oil and alcohol free cream concealer

Choosing the Right Shade

Generally, a concealer that is 1-2 shades lighter than your natural skin tone should be used.  Choosing the right shade of concealer depends on the need of your skin. So analyze your skin first that you are trying to cover dark circles, scars or blemishes or to cover up acne. Once you find out what you need to cover, you can choose the suitable shade and color. “Green tinted concealer is used to reduce redness. Yellow tinted concealer will brighten your face. Lavender concealer can help even out complexions with yellow tones. Orange or red-tinted concealer is used to cover purple or dark spots”. If you become tan in the summer, then you need a different shade of concealer for summer and winter, despite of the texture of concealer that you use. Concealer should be checked on your face, not on your hands, in order to determine a true color match.

Apply Your Concealer to Acne and Spots

If you want to conceal scars, sun spots, dark spots, or birthmarks, dab your concealer onto the top of each mark, and then mix gently outwards to your skin. If you want to conceal acne, don’t use your fingers to blend the concealer. While using your fingers there is doubt of spreading bacteria that will liquefy the concealer, resulting in less coverage. Therefore, use a clean makeup brush. Use a thin layer of concealer to cover wide area and blend the edges very well.

Cover Up Your Dark Circles

In order to cover up your dark circles under your eyes you need to use a concealer brush or your fingertips. “Apply the concealer in the shape of an upside down triangle. Draw a triangle from one end of your eye to the other, bringing the point down your cheek to your nose crease. Blend the concealer in around the edges, so that there is not an obvious change in tone between your skin and the concealer”. Don’t rub concealer under your eyes, as the skin here is sensitive and easily damaged.

Set Your Concealer

When you have applied concealer under your eye circles and all your dark spots then add a layer of foundation over the top of your concealer. For a flawless look, use a loose or compact powder foundation. Spread your foundation over the entire face. Using a large brush apply translucent setting powder over the top of your foundation to stay it for approximately 12 hours. For a concealer to stay for a longer period of time dab a little extra powder over the areas where you put concealer.
