Cover up blemishes, scars and under-eye shadows with concealer

Beauty Dictionary: concealer

Foundation evens out skintone, but it is concealer that is your true best friend when it comes to making blemishes, scars and shadows disappear. But there are three main types of concealer, so it's important to know what effect you're looking for before you start applying... Here's a Beauty Dictionary definition of the miracle product that is the Concealer. The clue's in the name.

Light-Reflecting

Did you have a big night out last night? Feeling a bit under the weather? Whatever the reason, if you've got dark shadows under your eyes, reach for a light-reflecting concealer. Cover only the dark areas with the concealer, then lightly blend it outwards with a brush or your finger.

Banish blemishes

A stick or brush applicator is great for hiding any unwanted spots, red patches or general blemishes. Make sure you get exactly the right color for your skin tone, however, or you might end up actually drawing more attention to the blemishes you are trying to cover up.

Color correction

Concealer can also help balance the natural color of your skin. It might sound weird, putting green or purple concealer on your face, but it works! Greens combat redness, purple hues neutralize yellow tones and pinks bring warmth to the skin. CC creams are also good for balancing skin tones, if you're after all-over coverage.

So there you are, our definition and guide to the magic makeup item: the concealer! Definitely one of our most essential beauty tools, don't you think?
