We all know that having an evenly toned face and color is very important in creating a beautiful, stunning look, so read on and find out what you can do to those dark circles under your eyes without having to go through extremely expensive plastic surgery to rid of them.
But first, what are makeup concealer cosmetics for?
Make up concealers are very important cosmetic products that help cover up blemishes, dark spots, patches and undereye circles. It allows you to product an even color tone on your face. These days, concealer sticks are most popular: they are easy to apply and very convenient to use. If you want to conceal pits on your skin, it is best to use a concealer brush to apply it onto the pits. We will present a step-by-step instruction for putting on concealer later.
How to choose the best concealer
There are a variety of concealers these days. If you visit your beauty shop, you will see lots of them in different shades, even in different colours – from green to pink to lilac. In choosing the right color, it is always safe to go for one that is half a shade lighter than your skin’s natural color. Yellow-based concealers are most popular as they are effective in cancelling out bluish, greyish and purplish tones. If you have dark undereye circles, you should opt for a yellow-toned under eye concealer. If you have reddish blemishes, green-tone concealers work well in concealing them.
If you have notably dark circles under your eyes, you should concentrate on them and make sure you do not draw attention on the area. It is best if you choose an undereye concealer that is smoother and lighter in texture. In the same way, you should choose one that is lighter in shade than your skin, and make sure you buy one that will blend well with your foundation.
How to Apply Concealer
After choosing the right concealer shade, you are now ready to put it on and hide away those blemishes and dark circles.
1. First, make sure you start with a clean face. Cleanse and moisturize before applying anything.
2. You can put concealer over your foundation or vice versa. However, we recommend you to start with putting a thin layer of foundation before putting on concealer so that you don’t tend to put too much.
3. Lightly put a small bit of concealer on the blemished areas as well as over your eye bags. You may use a small, flat, concealer brush or dot it on using your finger. Apply evenly with light, gentle strokes. When applying concealer, start with less and add more if you need to; the lesser, the thinner, the better.
4. Blend everything well on your skin and your foundation. Add some moisturizer if you want a more translucent and polished finish.
Cle de Peau is one of the world’s best under eye concealer. It is owned and produced by Shiseido Cosmetics, was voted as Instyle Magazine’s Best Buy of 2006, and is used by makeup artists and celebrities alike. Just a small dot of this product can cover up those dark circles, and does work for blemishes as well. The texture of this concealer stick is creamy so that it does not crease or cake up like other concealers, nor does it emphasize fine lines and wrinkles for those who have them.
We highly recommend this product, especially for those who are new to makeup and those who are aged 40 and above. It would not be a good idea to waste your time, effort and money into concealers that do not work as superbly, right?
