How do I apply concealer?
Concealer can be used to cover any skin conditions you don’t want the world to see, but the most common places to use cover up makeup include dark undereye circles, acne blemishes, dark spots and areas of redness (especially around the nose and chin). Concealer can also be used to improve the appearance of uneven skin tone, whether mild or significant (such as in those with vitiligo), as well as to conceal bruising after injectable treatments.
Concealer can also be used to contour the face, simply by using a product that is 1-2 shades lighter than your foundation on areas you’d like to highlight. Smooth liquid camo hydrating concealer is a good option for this makeup application technique because of its precise wand applicator and easy-to-blend formula.
How do I find my concealer shade?
The key for optimal concealer coverage is selecting the proper shade for your skin. First, determine where you skin falls on the spectrum from fair to deep. Then, it’s important to identify your skin’s undertone, and doing this is as simple as looking at the inside of your wrist. Blue or purple veins indicate a “cool” undertone, blue-green is “neutral,” and slightly green or olive veins mean you have a “warm” undertone. Every shade of Dermablend concealer and foundation has a number ranging from 0 to 90 that corresponds with the depth of skin tone, as well as a “C,” “N” or “W” for undertone. This makes it easier to find the best shade match for your unique skin.
If you desire even more coverage from your concealer (with or without foundation), quick-fix color-correcting powder pigments can help provide the flawless finish you are looking for. Available in four shades that instantly neutralize the appearance of redness, dark circles, dullness, veins and discoloration in all skin tones, these powder-to-cream cover up makeup formulas offer extra concealing power while allowing you to move on to the next step of your makeup routine immediately.
There are a few ways to ensure your concealer (and foundation) stay in place and look freshly applied all day. Preparing the skin for makeup with a product like insta-grip jelly primer creates a smooth surface for enhanced application. Using a setting powder or spray as your final makeup step can help prolong wear-time as well.
What’s the difference between concealer and foundation?
Simply put, concealer is designed to provide extra, targeted coverage where needed, while foundation can be used on specific spots or to enhance the appearance of the entire complexion. Concealers come in stick and liquid form, while foundation options include creams, powders, sticks, liquids and drops. The cover up makeup formula you choose depends on both personal preference and the level of coverage you desire.
