Concealer 101

Hello Readers,Today I want to talk about all that your concealer can do for you! I am all about having products that has multiple uses. And concealer of any brand is one of those items! Its a  must have! I usually keep two things of concealer on hand at all times because I never want to end up being without it. I would be so lost in the makeup world.

1. Concealing BlemishesObviously one of the main reasons we use concealer is to conceal blemishes. No shocker there! It is good to cover up those zits we get from time to time. It is also good for covering up those pesky dark circles under your eyes! If you tend to have those blemishes that are really red then you can use a concealer that has a green base… Green counteracts the red! 

2. HighlightingNow when it comes to highlighting and contouring some people will get a second foundation that is lighter to do there highlighting or they use a lighter powder. But I am what I like to do use is drum roll please…… CONCEALER! If you have any questions about using concealer as a highlighter you can check out my youtube video about highlighting and contouring! In the picture below where your see the white you can use concealer and bronzer where you see the dark. It will change your world if you start doing this!

3. Prime your EyelidsI know that people at makeup counters and makeup stores drill in your head that you need to buy an eyelid primer, but in reality you don’t! You can use your concealer for that... it works the exact same way! Just dab a little on you eyelid and then take one of those beautiful little tools called the Beauty Blender (you know the thing that look like a squishy egg) or a makeup brush and blend it in. Then proceed by putting on your eyeshadow as usual!

4. Prime your lip.
Every girl hates have to constantly check to make sure your lipstick in still there and not faded to some funky color! Well the answer to your problem lies in that beautiful little tube of concealer. All you have to do it take your concealer brush and put the concealer on like you are applying lip stick. Then apply your lipstick right on top of that. After you do that blot with a tissue. Then reapply your lipstick again… and BAM long lasting lip stick!
Note: Apply the concealer lightly on your lips. DO NOT cake it on like your would when trying to cover a blemish. It will start to feel a little heavy.

Happy Concealing!
