by 2 September 15, 2014When you look at your favorite celebrity's seemingly perfect, seemingly poreless, blemishless skin, you need to realize something very important: under all that bronzer, highlighter, blush, and foundation, your favorite starlet is relying upon some serious concealer. So for today's Makeup Monday post, I thought I'd shed some light upon the mystery behind even-toned, flawless-looking skin. Types of Concealer: 1) Wand/ Tube: A wand concealer, like a lip gloss tube, comes in liquid form. Liquid concealer offers lighter, more blendable coverage. A wand concealer is most appropriate for general under-eye coverage and is best for younger users (who don't have to worry about liquid concealer settling into any wrinkles). *I would NOT recommend using a wand concealer to cover blemishes, as the wand can spread dirt, oil, and bacteria from continual use!* 2) Stick/ Pot: A stick or pot form concealer is a solid, and therefore a much heavier product. This allows for more effective coverage of dark spots, blemishes, or under-eye circles. 3) Color-correcting: Most brands offer green-tinted concealers to help even out redness on the face. Green concealers are great to help create a truly balanced, even skin tone. How to Use Your Concealer: 1) Under eyes: To avoid super-light circles under each eye, apply your concealer in a triangle shape.

This will keep the spot from getting crusty throughout the day! 3) For color-correction: Say it with me: LESS IS MORE. You don't want to go out looking like the Wicked Witch. Start with the tiniest spot of color-correcting concealer/primer, then add more if you next extra power to cover up that redness. Final tips: - Keep skin moisturized to ensure your concealer doesn't crack or dry out on your skin. - Choose a concealer that best compliments your natural skin tone. - When applying concealer under the eyes, lightly stipple (or pat) the area using the tip of your ring finger. Never rub or pull that super-delicate skin around your eyes! Happy concealing, luvvies! Now go put on the rest of your face --- including your lipstick. Duh.
