There are two main categories of concealer: liquid and stick/compact.
Liquid concealer is best for the times you want light coverage over a large area of your face. Liquid concealer also works well for those looking to create a light finish, especially in areas of wrinkles, like around the eyes and mouth.
Stick and compact concealers are well-suited for heavier coverage on smaller, more specific areas of the face.
Picking the Color of Your Concealer
It’s wise to invest in two shades of concealer. One should be very similar to your skin tone, and can be used to cover dark spots, pimples, and other facial blemishes. The other should be lighter than your skin tone, and can be used to highlight certain areas of the face or add clarity to your makeup look.
Note: Some women prefer to apply concealer before liquid foundation. The order of these two steps is truly a matter of preference—and trial and error. Try out both and discover which method works best for creating a smooth, radiant finish on your skin. However, when using powder foundation alone, always apply concealer first.
Where to Apply Concealer
To reduce the appearance of dark under-eye circles and create a glowing, bright look, apply light concealer beneath the eyes with a damp sponge or makeup brush.
If you’re using a concealer to minimize the appearance of blemishes, apply directly to problem areas.
To highlight your face using a liquid or cream concealer, place small dots in the following areas:
Gently blend it into the surrounding skin, and always be sure to cover with a foundation or setting powder.
