When you have those dark rings under your eyes, or that you have uneven patches on your face, you need something to cover them up… And the concealer does a magnificent job on that.
Concealers can be considered as one of the greatest products that cosmetic manufacturers ever conjure up with for covering up problems on your face. Before they were invented, women had to use tons of foundation and other techniques to cover up their imperfections. Now, all you need is a tube of concealer and you’re good to go.
There are several ways which you can apply a concealer for a more natural and flawless look that will draw stares from your peers… Let us take a look at some of them in this article…
1. Using A Stippling Brush
Start off by applying a considerable amount of concealer under your eyes, and spread it to your temples. (You do not have to worry about wearing too much concealer, as we’ll show you how to blend it into your face).
Next, spray some water onto a stippling brush and move it in circular motions to blend the concealer and even it out on your skin. Doing so will give you a smooth look, while at the same time covering up your eye shadows.
2. Using A Damp Sponge
Another way to use concealer is to apply sufficient amount under your eyes (and if you prefer, you may also spread it to your temples). Using a damp sponge, press and pat the concealer to even it out.
It is necessary to use a damn sponge instead of a dry one because the damp sponge will absorb less amount of the concealer.
Lastly, move the sponge in a stippling motion for a smooth and flawless finish.
3. Using Your Fingers
If you don’t have a sponge or stippling brush, you can always use your fingers (but make sure you first wash your hands thoroughly). Apply a small amount of concealer at the inner corner of your under eye and gently pat it down to the area where your eye circles are.
If you’ve applied concealer all the way down to your lash line, make sure you apply eyeliner and mascara on your eyelashes to make your eyes look bigger.
4. Using A Q-Tip
If you look in a mirror and tilt your head down a little, you’ll be able to see the bottom line of the eye shadows clearly.
Apply the concealer on the bottom line, and using a damp Q-tip, blend the concealer into the dark eye circle.
So there you have it… 4 simple but effective techniques of applying a concealer to help you cover up dark shadows under your eyes, as well as any uneven spots on your face. Choose the technique that works best for you.
