How to find the best concealer for you
Concealers come in a series of consistencies, and forms, from liquid to stick to cream. Most importantly you have to find the right consistency and tone for the issue you’re trying to cover and hide. With this cheat sheet we hope you find the right concealer for you;
For blemishes and acne: Go for a heavier cream formula like a stick concealer. These are meant to stay longer on a spot, while a yellow or green tinted formula will aid in neutralizing the redness of the spot. For the blemishes, place a dot directly on them and blend into the skin with a concealer brush, fingers, or Beauty Blender in a pressing motion until flawless.
For dark spots: With these, you need to apply foundation first and then the concealer to get more coverage. Whether dark spots or age spots, go for the thicker consistency with a peach undertone to neutralize the dark spots.
For undereye discoloration and dark circles: Go for concealers with brightening formulas and liquid ones that will settle into fine lines and not crease or get cakey. You’ll also have to go with a shade lighter than your skin tone to brighten your undereye area and diminish the dark circles.
For mature skin: Go for the medium coverage liquid concealer and not use too much of it but enough to give you that natural fresh flawless look.
To Contour: Choose neutral shades 3 tones darker than your natural skin tone to create a shadow and shape.
To Highlight: Choose and go for a shade 2-3 shades lighter than your natural skin tone and in your same undertone.
