Dark circles under the eyes, acne, and other skin imperfections can have a significant impact on our appearance. And the worst part is that they can ruin our mood and self-confidence.

Fortunately, there is concealer that can mask all imperfections if used correctly. Good Housekeeping has told you how to do it.

Blackheads, age spots, dark circles under the eyes, etc. are all completely normal conditions of human skin, so you shouldn't be ashamed of them. But the desire to look flawless is also quite understandable. That's why concealer was invented to make you feel more confident and always glow.

Decide what you want to hide

Different colors and tones of concealer can be less or more effective depending on what you want to conceal. For example, peachy shades eliminate the blueness associated with dark circles under the eyes. Green shades are better at hiding redness. And yellow concealers help to correct uneven skin tone and hide hyperpigmentation.

At the same time, if you want to refresh your eyes and hide dark circles, choose a lighter color of the product, and if you want to cover redness, mask acne and age spots, use a shade of concealer that matches the color of your foundation. This will allow you to hide imperfections without creating a mask effect.

For mature skin and puffiness under the eyes, choose a formula that reflects light and gives the skin a glow. However, make sure it doesn't shimmer.

Prepare your skin

Before using any makeup, including concealer, apply moisturizer and primer. Experts also recommend applying concealer after foundation because this way you don't have to waste it on skin imperfections that foundation can handle.

Texture

Experts prefer liquid formulas for thin skin around the eyes as creamy and thicker textures can smudge into wrinkles and creases.

However, if you want to conceal skin texture and deal with post-acne, for example, it is better to use a fairly thick concealer, preferably a stick.

You'll also need a fairly thick concealer to cover up dark spots.

Skin type

If you have oily skin, make sure you apply a loose, translucent powder to your face. This will help the coverage stay in place throughout the day. And if you have dry skin, choose a moisturizing concealer rather than a matte one.
