Introduction to Concealer Magic

Well, it can help you perfect your complexion, contour and highlight your facial features, fix makeup mishaps, and even use it for advanced customisations. It’s an essential product that can help you achieve a flawless makeup look in no time. 

1. Perfecting Your Complexion 


Concealer can be used as an alternative to foundation. You can achieve a lightweight, natural look by diluting your concealer with moisturiser. This technique is perfect for touch-ups on the go or minimal makeup days. Spot concealing is another technique that you can use to hide spots and scars. Use a small brush for precision and blend gently with a finger or sponge for a seamless finish. 

Try out the Lakmē Absolute Creme Concealer to spot conceal your face. It provides medium to high coverage concealing uneven skin, dark spots and blemishes. Enriched with Vitamin E this crème concealer doesn’t crease into lines and nourishes your skin while making it look flawless. It gives you an even finish and the perfect natural base.  

2. Mastering the Art of Contouring and Highlighting 


Contouring and highlighting your face can help you sculpt your features and achieve a more defined look. The use of concealer in makeup for contouring is a great way to achieve a natural shadow effect. Select shades darker than your skin tone for contouring cheeks and jawline. Blending is key to achieving a natural look. Brightening with lighter concealer shades is another technique you can use to create an illusion of depth and lift your facial features. Apply to high points of the face like the cheekbones and bridge of the nose.
