Concealing 101

This week I am sharing some basic makeup tips this is the third instalment for the week. A lot of women I come across don’t even use concealer, its one item that is key in my personal kit and one that is key for my work. So in this post I am going to break it down for you on where to conceal on your face and the difference before and after. Concealer literally takes away the darkness, redness and any blemishes creating the illusion of flawless fresh looking skin:

Here is me with foundation and no concealer as you can see I suffer from darkness under my eyes:Here you can see where I have applied the concealer under the eyes, around the nose, at the top of the nose, around the mouth:Concealer 101 2Then blend everything in combining fingers and apply to cheeks to cover any pigmentation or blemishes and under the brow bone to create a more natural highlight:Concealer 101

Go for a concealer 1 to 2 shades lighter than your skin under your eyes, around your mouth, under the brow bone and at the top of the nose to create the light effect, but when working around the nose and on your cheeks use the same shade to match in with foundation as you don’t want areas where there is redness or blemishes to stand out because its lighter than your foundation.

Remember your skincare is really important especially under your eyes, you need a good hydrating eye cream before you apply otherwise the under eye area will be dry and the concealer won’t blend in giving you that fresh look.

Products I used was the Rimmel Wake Me Concealer and the Mac Pro Conceal and Correct Palette.
