Do you ever wonder why celebrities look so much more flawless in their beauty than the everyday woman? Perhaps it’s their access to top makeup artists; they use tricks which keep them looking gorgeous. Or maybe it’s just that they know how to make the best use of concealer. Check out the following tips to see if any of them could help you with your beauty regimen.
How is it that celebrities achieve a flawless yet natural look? Low-maintenance looks can be perhaps compared to a good book. The easier they are to read, the greater the skill required to write them. In other words, looking natural may require more skill than it appears. It usually comes down to applying the right concealer to the dark circles under the eyes and to any other blemishes.
Using a concealer only works well if you use the right shade and type. Your basic concealer should match your skin tone or be a shade lighter than your foundation. A concealer with yellow tones works best to cover dark circles. A concealer with green undertones works best to cover redness on the skin. You can add a hint of the correct color of eye shadow to mix with your basic concealer to achieve these formulas.
Concealer comes in a solid stick, cream, and liquid forms. You can also get concealer that brushes on for a speedy fix. A good quality to look for in a concealer is one that’s water-resistant. Cream and stick concealers tend to give the better coverage and are easier to apply than the liquid concealers. Particularly if you have sensitive skin, another great feature in a concealer is one that has mineral pigment color, not dye-based color.
Concealer should be applied before the foundation. Dab the concealer on gently with your finger with light pats. Follow concealer with foundation and then the application of light, translucent powder.
If you get your concealer right, you may look as flawless as the stars.
