Tips for applying concealer
You might not think about it, but applying concealer is a skill. A woman’s makeup routine can easily take over an hour (especially if she wears foundation). It’s important to know how to apply concealer properly so you don’t waste time and money on products that won’t work for you.
If you’re looking for some new ways to apply concealer, here’s where to start!
- Clean your skin with a gentle cleanser or soap-free cleansing lotion before applying any other product – this will help ensure that your skin is clean and clear of oils or dirt which could interfere with the application of make-up.
- Apply moisturizer as needed – this will also work as an emollient
There are two main methods: using a brush or fingers, with fingers being the recommended method for beginners. The most common way to apply concealer is with your fingers, but there are other techniques that can be used. If you have a hard time applying it with your fingers, try using an applicator brush or sponge instead. You can also use your finger as a guide and pat the product on in small circles around the area of concern. If you’re using a brush, use short dabbing motions and make sure not to drag the product onto dry patches or wrinkles on your skin; if you’re using your fingers, rub them together to warm up the product before pressing/patting it into place. A few other tips include making sure that there aren’t any clumps or streaks left behind (which can be fixed by running a dampened beauty blender over), applying under eyes first then going over the top of.
