The Basics: Concealer

by Casey B on 1/12/2011

Hey Everyone!

Here is another video in my “Basics” Series. It’s all about Concealer Application and tips. These tips might not work for everyone, and they may vary from person to person. These are the steps that I take, that work great for me. Hopefully they help you out too :)

A concealer or colour corrector is a type of makeup used to mask pimples, dark circles and other imperfections visible on the skin. Concealers usually do a good job of hiding blemishes by blending it into the surrounding skin tone. It can be used alone or paired with foundation.

Concealer is available in a variety of shades, from lightest to deepest. Some colors are intended to look like a natural skin tone, while others are meant to contrast with a particular type of blemish.
Colored concealers are usually applied sparingly beneath a concealer or foundation that matches the wearer’s skin tone.




White concealer reflects light so it’s great for hiding under eye circles. It’s also great for mixing your own perfect shade of concealer.

Green concealer can neutralize red patches on the skin, such as those caused by pimples, broken veins, or rosacea.  As long as you blend it well you won’t see any of the greenness.

Lavender Concealer can make complexions look brighter.

Skin-toned concealers are not only the most common type, but are often sufficient on their own at hiding or blurring imperfections


When it comes to applying concealer, it’s okay to apply it after your foundation but make sure you apply it before any of your powder products to prevent it from looking clumpy and cakey. Apply it to the areas that may need just a little bit more coverage. Applying it after foundation will also help the concealer last longer?
