eatincreasingly innovative formulas enriched with skin care ingredients, imperceptible texture and all-day wear
Are you tired of spending hours in front of the mirror to get a perfect makeup base?
It may surprise you to know to recreate a flawless skin, only one product is enough: the concealer. That’s right, new concealers, thanks to their increasingly hybrid and long-lasting formulations, can easily replace foundation, allowing you to save precious time in the morning and give you bright and uniform appearance in a few simple steps.
The concealer: a perfect base with just one product
Often used solely to cover small imperfections and dark circles, concealer is an extremely versatile product that, in fact, it can perform many more functions depending on the shade chosen. This little ally in your makeup routine is capable of not only camouflaging minor imperfections, but also going out, correcting, sculpting and even brightening your face.
Always start with skin care
Prepping your skin for makeup is essential, especially if you don’t use foundation. Liquid or cream products adhere best when the skin is clean and hydrated. In this way, avoid emphasizing the driest and chapped areas of the face and especially that the concealer accumulates in expression lines.
Stick the concealer on
If you don’t want your concealer to fade after a few hours, it’s important to blend it out carefully with a brush (so you get more coverage) and use powder to fix it. Alternatively, if you’re worried about the ‘mask’ effect, you can use a firming spray and dab your face with a sponge.
How to choose the right concealer for your skin
Choosing the right concealer for your skin is essential to achieve a natural result. First of all, assess your skin type. If it’s dry, choose a concealer from light texture enriched with moisturizing ingredients to nourish and smooth the skin. In the case of combination or oily skin, however, choose a creamier concealer, ideal for both dry and oilier areas.
Choose the shade that suits your skin tone
In addition to your skin type, consider the shade of the concealer. Make sure you choose a shade that comes as close as possible to your natural skin color. You can test on the back of your hand or neck to find the perfect shade that matches your skin tone.
Liquid or cream concealer, which should I choose?
Also pay attention to the consistency of the concealer. If you want coverage lighter and more modularselect one liquid concealer. If you need coverage more intensedo you prefer a cream or stick concealerthey are ideal for covering spots and pimples.
