HOW DO YOU ACHIEVE IT?
Want to conceal a few imperfections? Start by identifying them. Here are a few of the usual targets:
- redness on the sides of your nose;
- fine lines at the corners of your mouth;
- shadows on your brow bone or around your eyes;
- small pimples and dark spots on your cheeks, chin or forehead.
Put a drop of liquid corrector onto the target area then blend them in. It’s that simple!
Want to highlight certain areas?
If your goal is to work on specific features, the method remains the same. The only difference is where you apply the concealer to achieve the desired effect. You could, for example...
- Adjust the proportions of your eyes. A light spot on the inner corners makes them look further apart, while a darker shade on the outer corners makes them look wider.
- Make your lips look fuller. Place two drops of concealer on your lower lip, and one in the middle of your upper lip, then blend them in before applying your lipstick.
- Give your makeup a boost. A touch of concealer can accentuate the contrast around black eyeliner, under-worked brows or above coloured lips.
The three golden rules of focused concealing:
- Use a synthetic brush with a flat tip, small enough to ensure control and precision, yet soft enough to blend without leaving a trace.
- Choose a concealer that blends in perfectly with your complexion so you don’t draw attention to the concealed areas.
- Seal the makeup with a cloud of translucent, extra-fine loose powder.
