How to Apply Concealer II

Follow my blog with bloglovin´


It is not just the concealer but also the right way of applying the concealer that gives you the desired look. So make sure that when you apply concealer you follow the right way.

  • Use of brush and fingers to apply Concealer
  • Use the brush to apply the concealer. It will enable you to place the concealer precisely where it is required.
  • In case you prefer to use your finger then opt for the ring finger, as it applies less pressure on your delicate skin.
  • Gently pat concealer on with fingertips or brush on with a soft flat brush.

Applying the concealer
You should apply the concealer in the inner corners of the nose by the eyes and the dark areas under the eyes. To give a perfect look to your skin gently pat the concealer on with your fingertips and then cover the entire under-eye area and outside area of the eyes. Concealer first or foundation
  • When you are using liquid or solid foundation then you should apply the concealer only after the foundation but when you are using a cream-to-powder foundation then you should use the concealer first and then only the foundation.
  • To apply concealer, dot it on and then blend gently with a dry wedge sponge or clean finger. It will help you in concentrated pigment and intense seamless coverage of the intended area. You can also dot some concealer over foundation, before powder for added coverage.
  • To keep things as natural as possible, apply your foundation first and then top up the cover on only the inner half of the under eye. This way if you have the beginnings of fine lines, you are not adding weight to the outer half and showing off the problem.
  • If you are not using a color corrector then you should apply your foundation as normal. After that apply nearly dried concealer over the foundation in light patting strokes. And then reapply a bit of foundation in the same way.
  • While using liquid or solid foundation, best results could be obtained by applying concealer afterwards. But when using a cream-to-powder foundation, concealer should go on first.
Under Eye Concealer A neutral shade of under eye concealer can help you neutralize the purple or brown tones of bruising, under eye circles and other concealing challenges. Concealer should cover entire under-eye, including outside of eye to give it lift.

Use of darker concealer You should also note that the darker the circle is around your eyes the darker the concealer should be. You should test the color of a concealer over the foundation that you apply. If you find that the effect is invisible then it means you have chosen the correct shade.

Concealer for Sensitive Skin If your skin is sensitive then you should choose a concealer that contains only pure mineral pigment color and no dyes, oils, talc or starch.

How To Use Concealer
  • You should apply the concealer with a fine brush or with pointy cotton swabs.
  • Remember that the concealer is only meant to hide small blemishes or unevenness in the skin and not to cover up major skin flaws.
  • This makeup must be applied in a very directional manner otherwise it runs the risk of giving you look of a 'cake '.
  • When you are using your hands to apply the concealer you should always use little amount of it. A good rule is that it should be in such amount that you are able to see your fingertip when you have taken the concealer on it.

How to Apply Concealer

Concealer is one of the most important products in any woman's beauty arsenal. In fact, many beauty editors use concealer primarily and skip the foundation completely. Yet many women are afraid of concealers because they don't know how to find the right shade or apply it properly. Here we show you how to apply concealer.

The secret to properly applying concealer is to find the right shade and the blend it in so it looks flawless, not obvious. Concealer looks most natural when you work in "sheer layers and build it up gradually," according to the editors of Allure's "Confessions of a Beauty Editor."

To properly apply concealer, apply several dots of concealer under the eyes, then use the pad of your middle finger to tap it in (always tap, never rub). Apply concealer on other uneven spots on the face -- including the chin, and around the nose and mouth if need be -- and tap in.

Keep in mind concealer is not a beauty product to scrimp on Also, you'll want to find the right shade for your skin color. If your skin is darker in summer, you will need a darker shade for summer months and a lighter one for other months.

apply concealer after foundation. "This way, you will be able to assess where you really need it, "You don't want your base of foundation and concealer to be noticeable, so the trick is to avoid lots of product build-up on the skin. Use concealer as sparingly as possible, and only where it is needed. Usually, this is under the eyes, to hide dark shadows; around the nose, where there is often a little redness; and on any blemishes."
use a concealer with a light but creamy texture, and recommends applying it with a fine, pointed, synthetic brush. "You want the product to glide on effortlessly, but also to have staying power," she says.
To hide dark shadows under the eyes: "Apply a small amount of soft, creamy concealer - the texture is very important, because the eye area is so delicate - to the darkest part, and blend outwards, using your brush at all times." In the same way, you can use concealer to minimise shadows around the inner eye area.
"To conceal a blemish, apply a small amount of product, using the point of the brush to the red or inflamed area. If necessary, tap the area very gently with a fingertip - to help blend the concealer - and then set with a little loose powder. The key is to use very little product, and to blend it carefully, to prevent caking,"
Don't: overdo it. "By using too much concealer, you may unwittingly highlight what you want to hide," cautions and don't use too light a shade under the eyes - it doesn't look natural."
Shop like a pro: you might need to use two types of concealer. "Different textures work better for different purposes,". "For concealing shadows, use a suitable corrective shade. For some, this will have a peachy base; for others it will be a yellow tone. And you may find that you need another shade to conceal blemishes." Always test products on clean skin and in a good, natural light.
