Concealers in Make-up Art
So, I realize it every Friday that time flies away … really .. I am going to talk about concealers today .
Concealers as they are named are meant to cover up flaws in the skin such as dark spots, discolorations, scars, under eye dark circles, puffiness etc. Their composition is heavier than foundations and are available in liquid, cream, packaged in tubes, pots , bottles etc. Concealers that are highly pigmented can provide unexpected coverage to cover up even the tattoos on skin. The concealers need to be blended properly into the skin and can be used by itself or along with foundations.
Concealers for face can be used under or over foundations depending upon the type of foundation applied on the skin. If the foundation is a powder foundation or something with less moisture content, it is advised to use the concealer underneath, while in case of a liquid or cream foundation, they are best applied over.
Some renowned brand names when it comes to concealers include Ben Nye, Kryolan Dermacolor, YSL Touche Eclat etc… Also, MAC has some good concealers.
The concealers for the under eye area are best when they are creamy in texture with light to medium pigmentation. This is because the skin around the eye is delicate and sensitive, hence the product also ought to be chosen with care. If the concealer is too heavy, it would lead to pulling and tugging of the delicate skin leading to premature wrinkles. It is imperative to choose a shade lighter when it comes to selection of under eye concealers. In case, you are using a stick concealer, ensure that you apply the pigment with your finger tips from the stick rather than direct application.
So, please free to share your thoughts and inputs on the same 🙂 .
By the way , Happy Weekend ……
