Thought you knew how to apply concealer? Check out these concealer hacks that will change your life.
1. Trish McEvoy’s ‘Triangle of Light’ Concealer Application
Undereye concealer is an essential part of any daily makeup application, and how you apply your concealer is just as important as which product you choose. Trish McEvoy’s “Triangle of Light” method is so genius, it will revolutionize your makeup routine.
Trish’s signature Triangle of Light tip applies concealer in an inverted triangle under the eye, bringing the point just past your area of darkness. Blend with your finger or cream brush. The results? Undereye circles disappear, the concealer blends flawlessly with the rest of your face and your eyes get an instant lift.
2. Use a Corrector to Conceal Dark Circles
Before applying an undereye concealer, use a corrector from the inner corners of your eyes down to your undereye area to conceal dark circles. Bobbi Brown demonstrates this method in the video tutorial below.
3. Use Concealer in Place of Eyeshadow Primer
In addition to using concealer on the undereye area, you should always apply concealer on eyelids and the inner corners of your eye. Not only will this help to wake up and brighten your entire eye area, but it also provides the perfect base for your eyeshadow to adhere to your lids.
4. Use a Green Concealer to Mask Redness
Perfect for covering up a pimple or acne scars, a green concealer (like Maybelline Cover Stick Concealer) is ideal for counterracting any redness in your skin. Apply it first and then follow with your usual concealer.
5. Keep Your Lipstick from Bleeding
Applying a thin, sharp line of concealer around your lips will keep your lipstick in place.
6. Create Your Own Tinted Moisturizer with Concealer
For a custom-blended tinted moisturizer, mix a bit of concealer with your favorite moisturizer on your hand and apply to skin.
