Concealer was created and sent by the heavenly angles to help make our lives easier. It’s true, concealer has so many purposes and there are so many good concealers out there that aren’t raved about enough enough. So, here I am today sharing my concealer hacks with you guys.
My favourite drug store concealer are:
- Maybelline Fit Me Concealer
- Collection Lasting Perfection
- Bourjois Radiance
- L.A Girl Concealer
These 4 concealers just do it for me. They’re bloody great, full coverage and fantastic for highlighting. The Maybelline Fit Me Concealer is excellent for covering blemishes and especially the Bourjois Radiance Concealer is so good for brightening the under eye area.
Hack #1: Lipstick fix.
If you’re like me and applying lipstick perfectly isn’t your strongest point then this is the hack for you. Getting lipstick around the outside of your lips is by far the most annoying thing ever. However, a bit of concealer to tidy it up and you’re good to go. Take a small and thin brush with a small amount of your favourite Concealer, place on the imperfection and lightly blend the Concealer in minding not go touch the lipstick.
Hack #2: Sharp Lines.
A lot of people use tape to create a flawless line for that perfect smokey eye. However, if you don’t fancy using tape or if you haven’t got any then concealer is your best option. I usually do my eye shadow before my base but this hack can be done before or after the base is on. Once you’ve finished your perfect eye look and if you line just isn’t as sharp as you want it, take your small thin brush and a small amount of concealer from the end of your brow to the corner of your eye and blend outwards. Ta-dah! Perfect.
Hack #3: highlight your face.
After applying your foundation take a concealer lighter than your skin tone in a triangle shape under your eye. Blend thoroughly with a brush or beauty Sponge, I often use my fingers to blend too.This will then create the illusion of a natural and pretty highlight to the face. It also covers dark circles perfectly and helps reduce the look of sagging or puffy eyes.
There we have it, my 3 concealer hacks that can help you create a flawless makeup look.
