Starting Off | Week 2: Concealer

Concealer. Concealer. Concealer. I think that this is my favorite makeup product because you can just wear concealer if you don’t want to have a full foundation face.

Why use it? For those of  you who don’t know what concealer is: this a product use to hide any imperfections, under eyes circles, puffiness, pimples, scar or redness you may have in your face. More recently concealer has a new purpose: highlighting. This is use to illuminating your face where the sun would have naturally done it. Like in the middle of your forehead, nose bridge, under eyes area, and chin. I 'm not going to go to far with that. 

There’s a few kind s of concealer: stick, cream or liquid. I do prefer liquid but if you want better coverage use one cream based.

  My two all time favorites concealers are from MAC: The Pro Longwear (23$) and the Select Cover-UP (22$). They cover very wkk what I have to and last all day long and doesn’t smudge. I strongly suggest on putting concealer  after foundation because foundation will already cover some of the things that needed to be.

What Color? You should buy a conceal that is your exact skin color, If is it too light or dark it only going to put to emphasis on the things you are trying to hide. You should only use a lighter concealer for highlighting your face.

How to conceal under eyes bags: Use a peachy based concealer with your hands and apply it in the needed areas. Use one with vitamin A so it doesn’t settle in the crease and fine lines. After to settle everything, take a sponge and soak it in water and squeeze it to take out the excess of water and damped it in loose powder and pass it where you put your concealer. Be gentle with the loose powder. (To highlight do the exact same thing but with a lighter concealer also to cover redness instead of liquid concealer use a cream one and the sponge and loose powder).

How to cover dark spot and acne marks: This is not very complicated. Start by using a cream concealer which are heavier than liquid or stick- with a small concealer brush and start correct the areas with darkness and scars. After this step, if you  want you can add a bit of liquid concealer over it I do if I need full coverage. Then take your sponge and loose powder.  Blend everything and continue with the rest of your makeup.

What products I recommend? MAC Studio Finish SPF 35, MAC Pro Longwear, MAC Select Cover Up, MAC Studio Conceal ad Correct Palette (has a peachy color and 6 colors for 48$CAN),  Bobbi Brown Creamy concealer, Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage, SLEEK MakeUP Stick concealer.

  1. Thanks for your advice. It is so hard to pick up the right concealer and some of them are glowy so I would not like to apply this on spots or redness. I'd love to try a MAC concealer.

    1. You're welcome. Try the Pro Longwear first it has full coverage and last all day and you can use it by itself. Just moisturize first. The packaging is very annoying because you can't take off all the product of the bottle because its glass.
