If you’re a makeup minimalist, we know you’re always on the lookout for products with multiple powers. What if you told you that you could actually use your concealer to achieve foundation-like coverage? When used the right way, you can easily cover your problem areas just by using a concealer. Scroll down to know how…
Prep your skin
 

Prep your skin

Before you start out, make sure your skin is ready for makeup. Do so by first using a lightweight moisturiser for your skin type and then apply a pea-sized amount of primer to cover your pores. Apply a little extra primer on areas where your pores look larger than usual.

Warm up

Before you actually start applying concealer on your skin, you need to ensure that you’ve warmed up the product. Do so by dabbing a wee bit of concealer on the back of your hand. This will help ensure that the product doesn’t look too cakey on the skin and in fact, blends easily.

Target your areas
 

Target your areas

This is when you should target the areas that need coverage such as blemishes, acne scars and dark circles. In order to cover up completely, you need to first apply a bit of translucent powder and then dab concealer.

Use the right tools

When it comes to applying concealer as foundation, you need to use your fingers or a mini makeup sponge. Once you’ve decided on the blemish/area you want to cover, use your fingers to tap the product on the area of concern. You can also use the sponge to dab the product. Do not rub the product as that will wipe off the concealer.

Finish off with powder
 

Finish off with powder

For your concealer to stay longer, you must finish off with setting powder. This will ensure that your concealer doesn’t shift or move even in the sweltering heat.

BB pro tip:

We suggest using the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Concealer Stick with SPF 20. This one comes in fair and medium shades that give you coverage along with protection from the sun.
