Beauty Tip Tuesday: The Correct Way to Apply Concealer

Beauty Tip Tuesday Banner

Welcome to another week of beauty tips! As I have been trying to come up with ideas on tips I want to share I find myself saying, “Oh people already know that,” or “Who hasn’t seen this before?” But the truth is when working with my clients I have found that many, and I mean many women are uneducated when it comes to makeup. So I am just going to give you all I got in my bag of tricks!

Today I am going to share the proper way to wear concealer.  That is not to say there is a wrong way to wear it. Let’s just say there is a better way to wear it than we are used to.  Ideally, concealer is used to do just that, conceal. Whether you have a blemish, a scar, or dark circles under your eyes, concealer can hide all those flaws.  I’m going to focus on the under eye area today when it comes to concealing.

Due to lack of sleep and the majority of the time, genetics, dark circles are hard to avoid.  Concealer not only hides them but worn properly it can brighten your face and certainly make you look way more awake then you actually are. Makeup is magic people! 

Most woman will take there concealer right under their eye to their problem area when in fact you should be bringing the concealer down in a triangular shape. Also, try using a concealer one shade lighter than your skin to help with brightening!

Applying it like I did on the left will not only cover your dark circles but it will give the appearance that your face is lifted!

    • I have the worst under eye circles. They are almost black. I’ve tried all types of concealers but I must be doing something so wrong. By the time if I smile even a little I look like I have so many wrinkles under my eyes. I’m not rich by any means but I need to hire someone to teach me to put my make on so it will look good. Any suggestions?

      • You definitely need to get a good eye cream and apply it before your concealer! Using a color corrector in a lavender color can help if you apply it after the cream and before the concealer, it will help cancel out the darkness. Once you have concealer on don’t forget to set it! Laura Mercier brightening powder is a good one to use because it’s very fine so it shouldn’t settle in the wrinkles. Unfortunately if you are wrinkly under your eyes there isn’t any makeup that could make that go away! Wish there was though!

  1. I don’t even wear makeup but I want to go put some on to try this technique. It looks wonderful! I always apply it the wrong way when I do wear makeup! You truly are gorgeous!
