Apply Concealer to Cover Blemishes Like a Pro

Concealer is the weapon you want when you need to cover blemishes, dark circles, and other imperfections on your skin. If you are not familiar with the correct way to use concealer, applying it can be a bit tricky, especially if you are not sure what you are doing. You can follow the steps below to apply concealer, cover up blemishes, and make your skin glow.

Start with a clean base

Before applying concealer, make sure your face is clean and moisturized. This will ensure that your concealer goes on smoothly and lasts longer. You can also apply a primer to help even out your skin tone and make your makeup last longer.

  • Use foundation first, and concealer afterwards – this will reduce the amount of concealing you’ll have to do. Furthermore, most concealer will be removed during foundation application if you apply it first. Choose the right shade

When it comes to concealer, it’s important to choose the right shade. You want a shade that is one to two shades lighter than your skin tone. This will help brighten up your under-eye area and cover up any blemishes.

Apply in a triangle shape

To cover up dark circles, apply your concealer in an inverted triangle shape under your eyes. Blend with a beauty blender gently pushing concealer into skin. Make sure to purchase a concealer that is nice and silky smooth for easier blending capabilities.

Dab, don’t rub

When applying concealer, it’s important to dab it on with your finger or a small brush. Don’t rub it in, as this can cause it to look cakey and settle into fine lines. Dabbing it on will help it blend in better and look more natural.

Set with powder

To make sure your concealer stays in place all day, set it with a powder. Use a translucent powder to avoid adding any extra coverage. Apply the powder with a fluffy brush and gently sweep it over your concealer or use a powder sponge which will also prevent concealer from moving when set.

Bonus tip to Cover Blemishes: Color correct

If you have particularly stubborn dark circles or blemishes, you may want to try color correcting before applying your concealer. For example, if you have dark circles with a bluish tint, you can use a peach-colored corrector to cancel out the blue. Apply the corrector first and then follow up with your concealer.

In conclusion, applying concealer can be easy when you know how to do it right. Start with a clean base, choose the right shade, apply in a triangle shape, dab instead of rubbing, and set with powder. With these tips, you’ll be able to cover up those blemishes and look flawless in no time.

In order to best conceal imperfections, you should apply your foundation all over first, since it helps cover a lot of imperfections by itself.

Using your brush or beauty sponge, blend out two inverted triangles under the eye to brighten the area.

Using a powder sponge will prevent concealer from moving when set.

  • Use foundation first, and concealer afterwards – this will reduce the amount of concealing you’ll have to do. Furthermore, most concealer will be removed during foundation application if you apply it first.

The more you practice, the more quickly and easily you will be able to cover up blemishes and go out looking best.
