One of the most hit and miss beauty products to use is concealer, everyone applies it differently and there are so many varieties.
No one wants to see a bright orange line under your bottom lashes or barely blended green dots randomly placed on your cheeks, unless thats the look you are going for of course.
Blending, I think is the first most important part of using concealer. Followed by using the right shade and texture and lastly, not wasting your money by misplacing it.
I read this cool article on buzz feed which showed the best ways to apply concealers, which ones and what each one does.
Here are my favourite diagrams from the article that are worth looking at:
-To prevent your eye shadow from falling off your lid and settling in the creases, prime your eyelids first with a dab of concealer
-Hide puffy eyes with a bit of eye cream, highlighter, and concealer
-After applying concealer, blot the area with a thin tissue to prevent the product from settling in the creases around your eyes
-Make your lipstick pop and prevent the colour from bleeding by lining the outside of your lips with a fine-tip brush and a bit of concealer
-Make your brows pop by lining them above and below with a concealer that's one shade lighter than your skin tone.
Personally I use a Rimmel London wake me up version, but after reading this article I've looked in to buying dome different textures and colours
How do you apply your concealer? Which do you use?
