Perfect Concealers for Everyone
Concealers are offered in a variety of forms, and each type has its own distinct benefits. Liquid concealers are very easy to blend to give you natural-looking results. Some even come in tubes with applicators built into their lids to make them simple to apply. Stick concealers make covering imperfections as easy as drawing a dot or line and provide fuller coverage for more difficult-to-disguise flaws.
Like stick concealers, cream concealers offer fuller coverage but are a little easier to blend than sticks. Many concealers are universal and can be used on any part of the face, but there are also specialty products designed specifically for the eye area, the body and other areas.
The Best Shade for Flawless Coverage
If concealer isn't the right shade, it can actually call attention to imperfections instead of hiding them. That's why it's important to carefully compare colors as you shop. Women who wear concealer over the top of foundation
should look for a product that is the same hue as their base makeup. Some brands offer concealers and foundations in matching shades to make selecting products easier. Planning to use concealer without foundation? Use your skin's natural tone as your guide for choosing a shade.
Colored Concealer for Specific Imperfections
Colored concealers are a special type of concealer that is used to hide imperfections that are one specific color. For making redness from acne blemishes and rosacea less evident, you can use a green concealer. Yellow concealers will hide purplish and bluish discoloration like visible veins or dark under eye circles. To correct sallowness or yellowing of the skin, try a violet color concealer.
