Under Cover: Concealer Basics

In creating the perfect canvas, concealers can do wonders for your skin and the appearance of it. While choosing to even use a concealer to begin with is a personal choice, different parts of your face may need a different shade or formula — and, the excerpt I’ve found (below) can help you make some good concealer choices.


Normally, foundation is enough for me; but, occasionally, it’s good to have something handy that will do some extra covering-up. I rely on concealer the most when I’m feeling lazy and I want to skip foundation. Ideally, it’s a good idea to have on hand an undereye concealer, regular facial concealer, and a brightening concealer. For the undereyes, a peachy salmon color is best to counteract various blue, purple, and greenish undertones. Whatever your personal needs may be, despite the brand, choose a formula, shade, and texture that best suits you. For blemishes and other facial pigmentation, a waxier formula that won’t budge or sweat off is essential.

Nowadays, concealers are designed to brighten spots and shadowy areas on the skin. In essence, everyone could use a little pick-me-up to help them look more awake and healthy. Light reflecting ingredients are trending now — whether it’s in foundation, concealer, or powder — so, it’s good to know what’s out there and the pros would choose as well!
