Concealer is THE most versatile beauty product a girl can own. From concealing dark circles and pimples to brightening up your face, a trusted tube of concealer does it all. But despite all its awesome benefits, many women don’t know how to use this product correctly or end up not using it to its full potential. But worry not ladies, we’re here to help.

Here are four ways to use concealer for a flawless-looking face.

 

01. To hide acne and blemishes

Since concealer has a thicker consistency than foundation, it can work as a spot treatment to conceal acne and blemishes. All you need to do is apply a bit of concealer on to the spot or blemish you want to hide and dab it in using your finger or a damp makeup sponge. Follow it up with foundation and you’re good to go.

 

02. As a base

For days when a full face of makeup seems a bit too much, applying a small amount of concealer on selected areas of your face can go a long way. Simply prime your face, apply the concealer under your eyes, around your mouth and nose and over any spots or blemishes and you’ve got yourself a super lightweight, yet flawless base.

 

03. As a highlighter

Using a concealer that’s one or two shades lighter than your normal concealer can be used to highlight your face. Simply apply this concealer where you’d normally apply highlighter (the high-points of your face and under your eyebrows) for instantly bright and glowing skin.

Acne scars can sometimes be really difficult to completely conceal. But using a green colour concealer can help you cover those acne scars like a charm. Start by applying a green colour corrector on the acne scars to cancel out the redness. And follow this up with your usual concealer to hide the green colour and give your face a flawless, even finish.
