Most of us can’t live without a concealer, but thanks to this essential makeup product we have a fresh-faced look each and every morning.
Whether you’re covering up blemishes or prepping your skin, concealer is a must have. But chances are that you might be making some avoidable mistakes with your makeup, or even worse; you might not be using this multi-purpose product to its full potential.
Here are some common concealer mistakes you might not even realize you’re making.
Using too much of it
It just makes whatever you’re trying to cover more pronounced. Instead, start with a conservative amount and focus on blending the color past the areas you’re trying to conceal. If you still need more coverage, go back and add a little more, building thin layers.
Applying it before your foundation
Many think they should apply concealer before foundation, but the truth is you should always apply it afterwards. Applying concealer after foundation will allow it to last longer, and deliver better coverage. If you put foundation over it, it will blend out too much and not do its job. Take my word for it, you won’t be sorry!
Using the wrong formula
Incorrect application or using the wrong concealer formula can actually draw more attention to the area you’re trying to cover up. Don’t forget that liquid concealer is best to use on under-eye areas, while creams are better for blemishes as they’re less likely to wear off.
It is very important to choose the right concealer. I like very much MAC Pro Conceal and Correct Palette. This is a palette with four concealers and two corrector shades in a medium-deep colour wave. I pretty much love this product as I don’t have to carry additional contouring shades. One palette is enough for correcting, concealing and contouring.
Also, it has a wonderful consistency and texture, smooth and creamy, yet lightweight. It goes on light and moist and still does the job of covering up dark circles under my eyes and other dark spots on my face. It blends well, too.
If you have dark circles under eyes, MAC Pro Conceal and Correct Palette is the best solution for your problem. These days told my mother about this product and I gave her some free samples.
Today I talked to her and she told me that this product does wonders with her dark circles.
So, if you want to try this product, don’t lose the opportunity to get free samples only this week. It’s easy and worth trying this because the product is very good. So, hurry up. This is a limited stock.
Using the wrong shade
There’s a lot of talk about how your concealer should be a few shades lighter than your skin tone, but this is actually not true. Concealer should be as close as possible to your natural skin tone so that it blends properly. Also, this beauty product should be as natural as possible in consistency and texture.
Don’t prime your eyelids with concealer
This is the biggest misconception when it comes to makeup. While it might provide grip momentarily, concealer usually contains oils that cause your eye makeup to move around on your eye, which is what you’re trying to avoid.
Instead of the concealer, use foundation as an eyeshadow primer. It’s better than not using anything as a base or using a concealer. If you’re looking for a good foundation I recommend you Clinique Even Better. This product is long-lasting and has a lot of shades – more than 20, so you would be easily able to find your match from such a tone spectrum.
If you want to give it a try, you should know that in this period Clinique is offering free products, for all who want to try the Even Better foundation. If you are interested you should hurry up because the brand offers only 1000 products and are many people who apply for this offer.
Concealer can be your best friend if you apply it correctly and it can be your worst enemy if you don’t.
So, it is important to avoid making these concealer mistakes.
Please, comment below if you have any suggestions and if you think your friends would find this useful, please share it. Also, don’t forget that Clinique is offering 1000 Clinique Even Better free products, so take advantage of this offer andget your Even Better foundation. Yesterday, when I checked, there was only 98 in stock.
