Perfecting your technique involves a little more hard work and will take a few trials as well. So, let us get started!
Are You Buying the wrong colour?
One of the biggest mistakes which you can make is not choosing the correct shade. Although this is one of the common mistakes which all of us make or have done in the past.
We will suggest you always go a shade lighter than your foundation. As the lighter tone will cancel out dark discolouration and give you a proper covering. But guys remember to be careful that you do not go too far as concealers that are more than one shade lighter than your skin tone can leave you with a ghostly look unless you want one.
Lighter shades (Fair & Light) acts as a highlighter and offer fairer white glowing skin complexion, whereas darker shades (Medium & Tan) helps to cover major & minor skin imperfections like scars, shaving cuts, acne, blemishes, hickeys, etc.
As we mentioned this is one of the common mistakes that we generally make.
So now if you have already bought the wrong colour, there's a quick tip for you, you can blend it with a small amount of your foundation and it is good to go.
Are you placing the product in the wrong spot?
We often tend to just put all we have and we think it is all done. But wait, is it really that easy?
Let's find out.
For flawless coverage, you will need to do more work than just patting the product on the problem area. Like if we talk about your under-eye then instead of applying the coverup in a semi-circle underneath your lower lash line try extending the product down in an inverted triangle shape. The point of the triangle should stop across from the tip of your nose and the corners of your eye.
This simple and easy technique will help you in blending in the concealer seamlessly with the rest of your makeup.
Are you applying too much product?
Remember less is always more. Applying too much concealer can lead to unwanted creasing. The dreaded lines can become worse throughout the day as oil builds up and you make your regular facial expressions.
Worried right? But wait we always a remedy.
If you're a little heavy-handed, use a tissue to blot off excess product. Another pro tip: Layer on a few drops of eye cream with a cotton swab to help dilute any extra concealer.
