Concealer. It’s every girls go-to magic unicorn in a bottle, tube or jar! Where to apply concealer can be a daunting task. Sometimes I will look in the mirror on a good skin day and try to convince myself that I don’t need a concealer and this is my biggest makeup mistake because 9 times out of 10 I do. There are certain spots that whether it be from age, sun exposure, breakouts or just a late night that we need to be utilizing our concealer on and I wanted to go ahead and share with y’all where to apply concealer that will work well for most everyday routines!
WHERE TO APPLY CONCEALER
ABOVE/BELOW BROW BONE // You’re going to want to dab your concealer over your brow bone and just below. This will help to brighten your eyes as well as add a bit of a highlight to the brow bone. I find that when I have extra dark circles under my eyes adding the concealer here will also help take the attention away from those!
UNDER THE EYES // You want to always apply concealer under your eyes for any blemishes, dark circles, bags left over from a night out and more! I apply mine under my eye and down towards my upper cheek bone in a triangular motion and use either a stippling brush or beauty blender to blend it in. I am a diagnosed insomniac & no stranger to dark circles; adding concealer here saves the day.
AROUND THE NOSE/TIP OF NOSE // This is where all of my redness lives. It tends to radiate out from the little crevices of my nose onto my cheeks so concealing these areas is a must! I highly recommend remembering this part of your routine or you’ll find that when your foundation begins to settle the redness or discoloration your have in these areas will show through!
CORNERS OF THE LIPS // So… as much as I’d like to deny this little fact. We get older and with that comes these little fine lines that creep onto our face and try to camp out in the outer corners of our lips. Concealing this area will help you looks years younger!
BOTTOM OF LIP/CHIN // For me this is the area that needs to be concealed the most during that time of the month! We already know how I feel about visits from Aunt Flow, go ahead and check out my On The Go Beauty Kit I’m surprised I didn’t throw a concealer in there! Breakouts always happen for me right in this area and I am sure I’m not the only one! Applying concealer here will save you the time and trouble of being uncomfortable with what could be showing through on your skin!
