Do you ever wake up in the morning and realize you look like the crypt keeper? Ya… we all have those days. Those dark bags can be scary! Luckily concealer is a great way to hide those. The key is to use a shade lighter, with yellow undertones. Yellow helps balance out the dark purple. This even brightens your face and makes it appear younger.
I love the Maybelline Age rewind for correcting dark circles. This product was totally made for it which is so great! The applicator on the top, makes it easy to apply and blend in. It’s a nice light-weight concealer that doesn’t look cakey or crease in fine-lines. I love it in the Neutralizing color because it really tones out the purple. This is also a wonderful concealer for highlighting!
If any of you have used an eyeshadow primer, you know how beneficial hey can be to helping your shadow stay in place all day. However, sometimes the extra step in your routine, and the cost of yet another product, is not always worth it. Who knew you could use concealer as a base for your eyeshadow? Just pat it on the tops of your eyelids, set it with a powder, then voila! You can have an effortless eyeshadow look that will stay all day long.
Right now the current fad in makeup is, “highlight and contouring.” Concealer is the real deal in the highlight contour game. You get a concealer a few shades lighter than your skin tone and accentuate the areas that are more prone to natural light hitting them. For example, the tops of the cheekbone, the bridge of the nose, the middle of the forehead, and under your eyes. You basically can just make yourself a new face by applying a darker color, to the shadowy areas of your face. Chisel out them cheekbones! It’s fine, it’s socially acceptable. Then bam! You’re hot AF.
