Ready to Reap the Benefits of Concealer? Here's How

We ought to have that one makeup staple in our makeup bags, the multi-purpose Concealer!

Many of our skin woes can be resolved with just the help of a concealer. It proves to be a saviour when it comes to hiding all our makeup errors, pigmentation, dark spots, and even our skin colour!

Concealer is similar to foundation, but it has a thicker consistency and hides all our flaws effortlessly! Applying it on top of your foundation to accentuate your features or just to cover those dark circles, a concealer can do it all. A small amount of it usually does the trick. 

Now that you’re through with the basics, let us check out the benefits of this excellent product. We have jotted down some amazing concealer hacks so that you can make the most out of this product. 

  • Blurs out fine lines
  • Fine lines tend to occur naturally under your eye area. How well you camouflage these fine lines entirely depends on you. A concealer that gives a buildable coverage and won’t cake between the creases works wonders. Just apply a few dots under the eye and pat it with your fingers or a damp beauty sponge to blend it to perfection! 

  • Providing coverage to dark circles
  • So the trick here is first to apply a concealer one shade darker than your skin tone, blend it with a wet beauty sponge and then use a skin brightening shade over your dark circles. This hack would hide your dark circles effortlessly, making your under-eye area appear more radiant and awake. You can go on with your usual foundation routine along with this hack. 

  • Contouring for a chiselled look
  • The exemplary chiselled look comes naturally with just a few swipes of concealer in the right places of the face. A concealer shade that is atleast two shades darker than your natural skin tone does the trick for you. Apply it to the hollows of your cheeks, sides of your nose, temples of your face and the edge of your forehead to make it appear smaller. Blend it all out carefully, and remember-only in an upward motion, and you don’t want your face to sag down! A creamy concealer formulation works best for this task!

  • Highlight Highest Points of your face
  • One of the most convenient ways to get a lit-from-within glow whenever you’re heading out is to use a concealer above your cheekbones, on the bridge of your nose and your cupid’s bow too! Just choose a shade two shades lighter than your skin tone, blend it thoroughly, and you’re all set to GLOW!

  • Prime your Lids and Lips
  • Did you know your concealer can also act as a perfect primer base for your eye shadow and lipstick? Just dab a small amount of a brightening concealer on your eyelids and lips and finish off the look with your favourite eyeshadow colours to make them pop even brighter. Repeat the same with your lip shade, and see the difference yourself! 

    Using concealer will be the most feasible decision you can make to fix your beauty disasters. Here are some of our Concealer recommendations to ease out your search.
