How to Correctly Apply Concealer

Some of you might already know this tip, but I know I have some readers that are new to makeup. So if you're new then this is for you. 

Lets start with the very basics:


*This by far is my favorite brand of concealer!!!

- When picking your concealer be sure to pick a shade that is 1 or 2 shades lighter then your skin tone. 

- The only exception to the rule is when you have a blemish. In that case you should use a shade that matches your tone for the best coverage. Also you will apply concealer to a blemish after you use your foundation so you want it to match your foundation. 

- Most women will need a yellow based concealer for the best coverage. Not pink. The exception to the rule is people with dark skin, they will need an orange based concealer. 

- Always test your concealer under your ear on your neck. Again, you are looking for a shade that is 1-2 shades lighter then your own. 

Okay now that you have the basics, lets move on to applying it:

- This is probably the most important part. 

- You need to apply your concealer in a upside down triangle under your eye. This extends the color to your cheek bone, giving you a more natural look. 

-If you apply it just under your eye, you will only draw attention to your under eye area because the concealer will act like a highlighter. 

- Also you want to apply under eye concealer BEFORE you apply your foundation. This will also give you more natural look. 

- Don't be afraid to try it out. I know you will love the difference.
