One of the secrets to having flawless makeup is applying the right concealer. Concealers camouflage blemishes, lighten dark areas, and even out skin tone.
Here’s a rundown of the different concealers out there.
Under Eye Concealers
Under eye concealers are creamy and light in texture. More often than not, these concealers contain color correcting ingredients that cancel out the blue or purple hue of your eye bags. It’s applied on the curved portion of your under eye, where the darkest areas are.
These concealers are sheer in coverage with a luminescent finish. Highlighting concealers typically come in a click pen version and are applied in the high points of the face such as the cheekbones, nose bridge, chin, forehead, and the triangles under the eyes. Get a concealer two shades lighter than your normal skin tone to add a soft and natural glow that brightens your face.
It might come as a surprise to many, but pencil concealers actually exist. Creamy and soft pencil concealers are great for targeting tiny spots or freckles, for retouching, and even for highlighting your waterline for a bright-eyed look.
Everyone needs a little something to perk up their skin or cover up unwanted spots and scars. A blemish concealer is a medium to full coverage makeup that comes in various forms. It’s best used as part of your daily makeup routine or for on-the-go touch ups.
