Professional Makeup Beauty Tips

Clever Concealer

Concealers are a fast and effective way to disguise blemishes, shadows and scars, so your skin looks perfect.

Concealers contain a high concentration of pigments to provide complete coverage to problem areas. 

Our  professional makeup beauty tip is to always apply concealer after your foundation for better and more even coverage.

Stick concealers

Stick concealers are easy to apply as you simply dab them on to your skin, then gently blend into the skin. Always test a stick concealer at the beauty counter as some have a thick and heavy consistency.

Cream concealers

Cream concealers usually come in a tube and are applied with your fingertips or a small sponge applicator.  The finished effect is very natural.

Liquid concealers

Liquid concealers generally come in a tube and are applied with your fingertips.  They are a lighter consistency and offer a very natural looking cover. 

TAKING COVER

Here are our professional makeup beauty tips for applying concealer:

Spots and blemishes

Medicated concealers contain ingredients to help deal with the blemish as well as effectively disguise it.  Apply the concealer directly on the pimple or blemish and smooth the edges out.

Under-eye shadows

Choose a creamy consistency as dryer stick concealers will emphasize fine lines around your eyes.  Apply a tiny drop to your ring finger then dot around your under-eye area and blend gently.  Do not rub as this stretches the skin and can cause premature lines to appear.

Scars

Cream or stick concealers with a thicker consistency are best for covering scars.  Dot onto the scar and gently build layer by layer until you get a natural finish to make your complexion look perfect.


 

Cover deep under-eye shadows with a pale blue cream eyeshadow before using ordinary concealer.  It really works!
