These concealer tips will work wonders for you!

Primer and foundation are great products, there's no doubt about that. But we're sure we can all agree that there isn't an MVP like a concealer. It hides all your problem areas be it wrinkles, dark circles or blemishes and it helps give your face a flawless base to put your makeup on. What's more, it can actually help you look a lot more vibrant and fresh than you actually are so even if you're super sleepy, concealer will come to your rescue. So, if you're looking to expand on those concealer hacks, here are some concealer tips that will help you conceal like a pro.

Substitute it for a foundation

When you’re in need of a full coverage and your foundation barely gives you medium coverage, mix a pump of your foundation with double the amount of its concealer. You may even add a tiny amount of illuminator to it to give you a movie star finish to your face.

Use it for sculpting

While contouring definitely adds definition and sharpness to your face, if you desire an added amount of sharpness, use a concealer for the purpose. You may apply concealer just under your contour to make it appear sharper and sculpt your face in the process.

Use concealer to contour your nose

If you want to make your nose look slimmer, you can apply a concealer that’s roughly two shades lighter than your natural skin tone on either side of your nose. By highlighting this area, it’ll make your nose look more slender. To heighten this contrast, set it with a bright setting powder.

Find the right coverage

Not all concealer types work for everyone. Depending on your skin type you need to opt for the right type of concealer. So say if you don't need heavy coverage, you can opt for a concealer with a liquid formula. And if you're looking for something with heavy coverage, creamy formulas will work best for you.

Drag the concealer upwards when you conceal your undereye area

This one is a really amazing trick that we came across. We're sure that you conceal your undereye area. Now, while the right way to do that is to form an inverted triangle and then blend away, what you can also do is to drag the concealer upwards in the direction of the end of your brow. This will make your face look super sculpted and will also help highlight your cheekbones.


07/8The right shade matters

The right shade matters

Always remember that you need to pick the right concealer shade. If you want a natural look, then make sure your concealer shade matches your foundation shade. If you're looking to highlight your face then opt for a concealer shade that's two shades lighter than your skin tone.


08/8Remember the order

Remember the order

Don't mess up the order in which you apply your makeup. You should start with a primer to help create the perfect base for your makeup. Then follow up with a colour corrector if you use one. Next comes your foundation and then comes your concealer. Once you're done concealing, use some setting powder to help set your makeup in place.
