13 Different Ways To Use Drugstore Concealer
Hey, we don’t hate.
You don’t have to use drugstore concealer to reap the many benefits of this magic makeup product. Whether you’re a Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage fanatic or a Maybelline Master Conceal lover, these are the 13 different ways to put your concealer to the test.
We all look for that magical makeup tool that can be used to fix all of our makeup problems. While we search high and low for this mysterious tool, what we don’t realize is that we have it all along. The concealer is such a versatile makeup product you’ll be amazed at the variety of uses it offers, all of which helps you achieve the perfect look everyday.
This will change how you do your makeup forever, so let’s get on with it and learn the many uses of concealer:
1. Hide Pimples
Acne or pimples will get in the way of achieving a flawless look, so use concealer to cover up those nasty little things. Just apply concealer on top of the pimple and dab the concealer to smooth it out.
2. Lightens Dark Circles
We sure use our concealers for lightening dark undereye circles simply because it is so darn effective in doing so! Dab gently under the eyes and don’t push and pull the skin. Doing so will lead to crow’s feet and the appearance of fine lines.
3. Reduce Nose Redness
Everyday, we have to deal with the redness around our nose and we really don’t know why this redness doesn’t naturlly go away. But no need to stress about it anymore because your concealer will cover that up.
4. Brighten the Mouth
Apply on top, sides and under the lips to brighten up the mouth area, which preps it for that awesome lip color you’re going to smack on. You can also use it on your cupid’s bow to define the shape better.
5. Lighten Pigmentation
If you’re dealing with freckles, sun spots or age spots, your concealer’s got you covered. Dab some on top of the pigmented area and you can magically see them lighten up. Add some foundation and you’ll pull off a flawless look.
6. Minimize Pores
Are your pores on rage mode everyday? You can calm them down with the use of concealer. It really does help minimize those pores under makeup.
7. Lighten Up Eyebrow Color
It’s a sad fact that not all of us will find the right eyebrow shade to use. Often, the ones available are too dark. If you’re suffering from the same problem, just apply some concealer on the eyebrows. After that, apply the eyebrow color and you’ll see how it instantly lightens the eyebrow color.
8. Reshape the Eyebrows
Getting the eyebrows shaped perfectly every single time can be quite impossible to do without a little help. So call your trusty concealer and get those eyebrows on point!
9. As A Highlighter
If you’re someone who does not like to keep a lot of makeup products, then your concealer will work double time as a highlighter.
10. Eyeshadow Base
Eyeshadow will last longer if you apply a lid primer or eyeshadow base first. However, you need not get those anymore since your concealer can also be used as a base.
11. Lighten Lip Color
Want to instantly tone down the lip color you’re going to use? Just dab some concealer on the lips to get a lighter lip color effect. Do exfoliate the lips first before trying out this technique.
12. Reshape the Lips
Sometimes, perfecting the shape of the lips can be very tricky, especially if you’re trying to pull of a red lips look. Use concealer to reshape the lips.
13. Mix for Different Lip Colors
Well we really don’t want to collect each and every lipstick shade there is out there. A good idea is to use concealer on top of your lipstick to get different shades. Start experimenting and you’ll be surprised at how many gradient colors you can come up with.
Thou shall never take concealer for granted starting today. Concealer opens up a new world of possibility…the possibility of using ONE tool to fix all of your makeup problems.
