Makeup Tip #1
Posted February 3, 2012on:
Everyone should be doing this, unless you’re 17 and under. Concealer helps minimize puffiness, undereye circles and darkness under the eyes. In even out skin color, hiding discoloraton, blemishes and even make your skin texture look more luminous with the aid of foundation. There is an debate whether conceal should be lighter than your foundation or match your skin tone. I find that for my eyes, i used one that is a tone lighter and blend it with my foundation. It make my eye look brighter and youthful, not like I partake in two a.m. feedings. I use a conceal that matches my foundation for blemishes and whatnot. I find this works for me and isnt a steadfast rule.
Concealer also works well as a primer for eye shadow. Depending on the quality of the concealer, it can minimize creasing and make eyeshadow last longer. Using a lighter one can help colors pop.
Concealer is great for that pout. It stops lipstick from bleeding and if you use one that dries to powder, you can have a great matte color. It also defines the lips, letting you create the perfect shape.
There you have it: concealer; in all its glory
