9 concealer tricks every beauty-buff needs to know

9 concealer tricks every beauty-buff needs to know


Written by Katie Byrne


These tips and hacks will make your make-up application a whole lot more savvy...

 

#1 First of all, pick the right concealer. The ideal product will be in a shade two tones lighter than your foundation, and will blend into your skin rather than cake.

#2 If you want to wear foundation as well as concealer, put your foundation on first and then apply concealer afterwards; this will minimse the amount of concealer you need to use, as well as guaranteeing you don't blend pre-applied concealer away.

#3 Instead of applying concealer by wiping it with a sponge or brush, tap it in place. Apply the product to your skin and pat it until it's blended; this will create a stronger coverage.

#4 Normally apply your concealer in a banana-esque shape under your eyes? Stop right there - instead, start applying it in a triangle shape, with the bottom point extending down to the centre of your cheek.

#5 If you normally use a brush, use a cotton bud to apply concealer to blemishes.

#9 Savvy concealer useage can help make the most of your features; use it to outline lipstick (giving you a perfect Cupid's bow), use it to correct eyeliner mistakes or blend it with your favourite highlighter and a dot of eyecream to reduce puffiness around your eyes. Also, if you fill in your eyebrows, a blended-out concealer outline afterwards is great for making the look more polished - genius, we know.
