No matter how many makeup products we are holding onto in our vanity, there are only a few products that we truly care about. While every product is important on its own, a few of them are life-saver and game-changer, all in one. And not every product is capable of having such major qualities, are you getting the hint which product we are talking about? It’s the most versatile makeup product, which is owned by almost every girl and comes to use in more ways than you can imagine. For all those who guessed it to be a concealer, you were on the right track. It is one heck of a product that can make such a huge difference to the way you and your makeup looks. Just point out the problem and the concealer will do its best to rectify the issue. From hiding your dark, stubborn under-eye area and acne to giving your face that brightening effect, concealer can do it all. We cannot be more thankful for the existence of this product as it makes even the most problematic concerns vanish into thin air effortlessly.
However, it’s important to use the product the right way so that you can reap all its amazing benefits. Listed below are four ways of using a concealer that can help you look absolutely flawless in no time.
To conceal acne and blemishes
One of the easiest ways to conceal your blemishes and acne is by applying a concealer. As compared to the foundation, concealers are much thicker in consistency and they can do a wonderful job as a spot treatment. After you are done prepping your skin, apply the concealer on all the spots or blemishes you are looking to conceal. Using your clean fingers or a makeup sponge, dab the product nicely onto your skin, and follow it up by applying the foundation to achieve a flawless base.
As a base
Doing full face makeup every day can be a bit of hassle for anyone. And some days also call for light makeup and that is when you can put your concealer to use and make it work as a base. After properly prepping your skin, apply a primer and let it absorb into your skin for a few minutes, after that, apply the concealer on the selected areas of your face such as under-eye area, around mouth, nose and all the spots or areas that need to be concealed. This won’t only make your makeup feel very light but will also look flawless.
To highlight your face
Your concealer can prove to be a great alternative to your highlighter. However, for this trick to work, you will need a concealer that is one or two shades lighter to your natural skin tone. You can easily use your concealer to highlight some parts of your face such as high points of your face and brow bone to make those areas look illuminating and glowy. Blend the product using a makeup sponge to make everything look natural.
Hide acne scars
We have to agree that acne scars can give anybody a hard time while concealing them perfectly but with the right product, the job can be made a lot easier. Before applying your usual concealer on the acne scars, apply a green color corrector on those spots as they help to cancel out the redness and work wonders every single time. This all should be done before you have applied your foundation to achieve that flawless looking base. Make sure to blend the product nicely or else it can look very unnatural.
