Concealing Tips from the Pros

Concealing is a critical step in achieving complexion perfection but it’s not the easiest. From formulas to application methods to tools, it can be a lot to take in.

 

We bring you a few tips to help you conceal like a pro.

Concealer Types:

Oil Free Concealer

This is a concealer you’ll reach for when you need maximum coverage for heavy duty spot treatment. Scars, bruising, inflamed acne, tattoos, hyperpigmentation, etc.

To apply, make sure you’re using a dense brush that allows you to press the formula into your skin and is based on the size of the area you wish to conceal.

 

We recommend:


Under Eye Concealer

Use a deeper shade for concealing/canceling out unwanted hues and a lighter shade is for brightening and lifting the area. When using Under Eye Concealer, remember to cancel out the issue before you cover it up.

To apply, make sure you’re using a dense brush that allows you to press the formula into your skin and is based on the size of the area you wish to conceal.

We recommend:


Liquid Concealer

Liquid concealers bridges the gap between concealing and highlighting. With different shades options, you can colour correct, spot treat, highlight and brighten and in one.

Because the liquid concealer is more of a highlight/brightening tool, we recommend using a soft, fluffy brush.

Less is More

It can be so tempting to want to layer product in hopes of concealing a blemish but in doing so, you’re actually drawing more attention to the spot. Keep it light and natural for the best results. If you really feel like you need additional layers, make sure to give the product ample time to set on the skin before applying more.

Concealer isn’t One-Size-Fits-All

Concealers work great for any skin type, but they still have their specialties. Oil free concealer is great for anyone with oily skin, since it’s a thicker formula that won’t slide around and Under Eye concealer is perfect for drier skin types because of its creamy, hydrating ingredients. Remember to choose your concealer based on your skin type and your concealing need. You may find that you use multiple concealers in the same routine!

Prep and Set

These are such important steps in ensuring your hard work lasts all day. To prep, use a lightweight eye cream to smooth and hydrate. To set, you can always use a traditional setting powder, setting spray or pressed based.

Other Products

When applying additional products like blush or bronzer, be mindful of concealed areas. You never want to aggressively brush or sweep product on top of concealer, as it will move the concealer around. Instead, remember to pat and stipple in order to achieve a stunning end result.
