Besides disguising blemishes, acne scars, black spots, and discoloration on the face, concealer plays an important role in the makeup process. The function of the concealer that people rarely know is to contour or highlight certain parts of the face such as under the eyes, nose bone, chin, and middle forehead.
Concealer, a multifunctional makeup product, can be used as a substitute for contouring and highlighting products. The tip is to choose a lighter shade from your skin tone or foundation for highlighting and a darker shade for contouring. You can still use the contour technique for the concealer, not only on the nose and cheeks but also on your lips. This is to add volume to the lips. If you have small or thin lips, this method can help you to get a different makeup look than usual.
Some women have annoying fine lines under their eyes. Thus, the concealer can also be used to cover the fine lines. You can also use the concealer for the eye makeup before applying the eyeshadow. This can make your eye makeup amazing as the eyeshadow is more visible than usual. In addition, concealer can improve the shape of the winged eyeliner that you have made.
Not only that, you can even use a concealer instead of a makeup foundation. You can use either a liquid concealer or a cream in the form of a facial moisturizer mixed with it. After that, you can apply it by using a sponge that has been moistened with a little bit of water to get a better result. This method is very effective when you are running out of the foundation.
