How to Apply Concealer
I think every woman has at least one part on their face where they want to conceal and cover up just a bit. Whether that’s hormonal blemishes, scars, hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation, dark circles, melasma, or some other type of imperfection. And imperfections are a-ok! Nobody is perfect so we should embrace our differences! But, there are times when a little concealer can make us feel and look a little more beautiful. Here are some tips on how to apply concealer…
Maskcara highlights come in a range of colors from light to dark. Depending on what you want to cover up, there is a color that is bound to help!
Covering Up Redness
Do you have redness on your face from a pimple, broken capillaries, rosacea, or from something else? Then using a highlight color that cancels that redness out is key! Sunlit & Wheat are great options for highlight colors that will help cover up those red spots. When using a highlight color as a concealer, it’s important how you apply it. Dab the color on the redness first, let it sit and set, then layer your normal highlight color over the area. You don’t want to use wiping motions, but dabbing and patting. Lightly blend with your Perfector Sponge.
Covering Up Darkness
Do you have dark circles under your eyes or any dark spots on your face? Then a darker highlight color will help cover up the discoloration. Mango is great for covering up the darkness. First you apply Mango in a patting motion with your brush (The Multitasker Brush or the Detail HAC Brush) on the dark area and then layer with your normal highlight color. Again, make sure not to wipe away the color, but dab the product on. Then you can blend nicely with your Perfector Sponge.
Using a lighter shade like Moonlit, White Peach, or Aura can help brighten your face. If you have darker circles, you can first apply a darker shade like Mango, and then layer with a lighter shade to give your face a nice bright look.
Hopefully these concealer tips will help you feel more confident in your skin! Trial and error is key…sometimes you just need to try a few different techniques and colors out to see what works best for your skin. Good luck gorgeous!
