In order for the makeup to look as effective as possible, it is necessary to use a concealer designed to mask skin imperfections. It should be applied very gently on the face, especially when used to lighten under eye circles.
What is concealer
Concealer is a cosmetic product that is necessary to mask skin imperfections. When using this product, the face looks fresh, healthy and the eyes are radiant. Unlike foundation, it must be applied locally to the face. As a rule, with the help of this tool, acne, traces of acne, dark circles under the eyes are masked. The product differs from the corrector in that it is intended specifically to mask flaws, and not to correct them. Concealer can only have a flesh tint, while correctors are available in red, green and other colors.
In order to make visible imperfections invisible with the help of concealer, it is necessary to select it correctly. The shade of the foundation should completely match the skin tone or be one tone lighter. Applying a lighter tone helps to divert attention from imperfections in the skin, especially if the product contains the smallest shiny particles.
Concealer is very often used to mask dark circles under the eyes. For these purposes, it is better to choose a light foundation. At the same time, you should not strongly highlight the area under the eyes, since the makeup will look unnatural.
How to use concealer
Modern cosmetic companies produce concealers in the form of sticks, pencils, and dispenser tubes. It is the liquid products in tubes that are most convenient to use. They can be used not only to mask minor imperfections, but also to lighten dark circles under the eyes.
The pattern of applying a layer of concealer to the face depends on the purpose of the application. If a woman wants to mask small pimples, redness, she needs to cleanse the skin, wipe it with a toner, apply a nourishing or moisturizing cream. After that, you need to apply a liquid foundation on the entire surface of the face, if necessary, and then mask minor imperfections with a concealer. The product should be applied pointwise to redness or pimples, and then blend with your fingertips so that the sharp edges of the foundation are not visible.
If you need to use concealer to eliminate dark circles under the eyes, apply a little on cleansed skin and blend thoroughly with your fingers or a small sponge. Makeup artists advise you to lightly hammer the product into your skin with your fingertips for a more natural look. In addition, this technique allows you to evenly distribute without stretching the delicate skin under the eyes.
A solid concealer, released in the form of a stick or pencil, is not recommended for masking dark circles under the eyes. As a last resort, you can apply a small amount of the product to your fingertips, slightly warm it up to gain plasticity, and then gently pat it onto the skin.
