Basic Concealer Application Tips

Basic Concealer ApplicationEXPERT’S ADVICE

Use the concealer judiciously, only on imperfection. Apply it to dark circles only, tapping finger lightly and spread towards bottom without leaving deposit under eyelid. Then apply to T zone, sides of nose, chin and around the mouth to even out your complexion. – Stafford Braganza, Head Make-up artist, Lancome

Dos in Concealer Application

  • Be light with the concealer. As we age, the skin under our eyes gets thinner, so too much will result in a creased effect. It can make your skin look dull
  • Pick a cream-based concealer as it blends well with the skin.
  • Always choose a shade lighter to your foundation.
  • If you have extremely dark under eye circles start with a pink or peach toned and for average darkness go with yellow tone.

Don’ts in Concealer Application

  • Don’t put concealer everywhere.
  • Never use it on eyelids or at the base of eyelashes this would result into flat, heavy look.
  • Avoid using a concealer in powder form.

  1. sorry, but wat happens wen powder form is used? may be it doesnt stay long? doesnt blend well?

    that was really helpful, buddy 🙂

  2. I have never used powder concealer. I use cream based concealer and I pretty much like it. I apply it after I have put liquid foundation on my face.

    Most Welcome. 🙂
