Concealer is one of the most essential items in any makeup collection, providing quick and easy coverage whenever you need it. When it comes to dark blemishes, circles, and dark spots, it’s an absolute savior. But even the make-up-bag basics require a little skill and know-how to ensure you’re getting the most out of them. Here are our top tips on how to use concealer, whether you’re going for the no-makeup makeup look, or full blown glam.
Preparation is key!
First things first, make sure you’ve got the best foundation to work with (and we don’t just mean literal foundation!). Preparing your skin properly is a great way to ensure your concealer goes on smoothly, and a primer can help minimize the appearance of pores and control excess shine.
It’s vital to choose a primer that’s suited to your specific skin type. Ideal for oily skin, our Prep & Matte Mattifying Make Up Primer is designed to give you long-lasting results and boasts a lightweight texture that will keep you feeling fresh. Alternatively, if you struggle with particularly dry or dehydrated skin, try our Prep-Hydrate-Illuminating Make Up Primer 24H Hydration. It’s designed to give you 24-hour hydration, soothing and softening the skin.
For days when you’re on the go, our Teint Idole Ultra Wear Blur & Go Primer Stick is a super convenient choice, and a veritable handbag essential! A single swipe helps even out your complexion, giving you a smooth surface to start applying your concealer to.
