Don’t you just hate it when your skin breaks out on the day when you have to attend a party or a big event? Ah, we have all had those days. But thanks to makeup products like concealers, hiding flaws and getting a flawless skin is now easy, but only when we know how to use these products the right way. Besides hiding pimples, you can also use a concealer to mask dark circles, large pores, blemishes, age spots and more. Now let us take a look at how and where to use it, shall we?
To hide dark circles, you will need a peach-based liquid concealer like DiorSkin Sculpt Smoothing Lifting Concealer, a latex sponge and loose powder. This peach-based concealer helps bring warmth to the area and the Vitamin A within it, prevents it from settling into the creases. The best way to apply it is to draw a base under your eye and the point toward your cheek. Then gently blend it. Finish by taking a wet sponge and dipping it into loose powder and then dabbing it over the area to set the concealer.
To conceal pimples and the redness caused by them, apply a cream concealer with a clean brush. Now use a high coverage liquid concealer that matches with your skin tone and dab it with a cotton swab. Blend it gently into the surrounding skin and then finish it with a good quality setting powder.
Cover Dark Pigments
To flawlessly cover dark pigments on your face, use a cream concealer from brands like Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage. It provides excellent coverage as it has a thick texture with less oil than a liquid concealer. Apply the concealer with a brush where the darkness occurs. Then smoothly dab with a lifting concealer such as Make Up For Ever Lift Concealer. A lifting concealer contains Vitamin A and E that helps regenerate the skin, and Tensine that is ideal for skin firming. When you apply it, it will provide you a highlight for added radiance. Then finish with a damp sponge with loose powder to blend it all nicely together.
Hide Puffy Eyes
To hide puffiness around the eyes, you will need some eye cream, a liquid concealer and a highlighter. A highlighter is an excellent make-up product to create a youthful and dewy complexion. The E.L.F. Studio Under Eye Concealer & Highlighter is a good choice. Mix a little bit of each on the back of your hand and then gently apply the mixture under your eyes, over your eyebrow bone and also, on the outside, by your temple. This is a quite effective technique to hide puffiness while simultaneously brightening the area.
Create Illusion of Plumper Lips
Use a light concealer to fill the middle section of your lips and then blend it out using your fingertips. Finish it with a nude lip gloss. Try these techniques to hide your imperfections and look jaw-dropping at your upcoming event! Stay beautiful!
