Everything you need to know about focused concealing

If you’re not a fan of foundation but you want to hide an embarrassing blemish or soften a specific area, we’ve got just the tip for you focused concealing.

WHAT IS IT?

Perfected by the beauty expert, Matthew Waitesmith, focused concealing is about the finer details. Rather than spreading a specific product over a large area, as you would with contouring or strobing, focused concealing works by concentrating on tiny areas to hide imperfections or highlight specific areas. The result is a uniform and luminous complexion that looks natural and more convincing than the effect you get with larger quantities of colour.

HOW DO YOU ACHIEVE IT?

  1. Identify the imperfections that need concealing or the areas that need softening. The perfect targets are zits, brown spots, red patches around the edges of your nostrils, fine lines in the corners of your mouth and dark shadows around your eye brows. You can also use this technique to brighten the inner and outer corners of your eyes or to highlight the Cupid’s bow, in centre of your upper lip.
  2. Put a drop of liquid corrector onto the target area then blend it in. Your ideal tool is a flat-head synthetic brush, small enough to allow for precision control.

You can also use focused concealing to highlight certain areas of your mouth. Simply place two drops of corrector evenly spaced under your lower lip and another in the centre of your upper lift, then blend the corrector in well before applying your lipstick.

  1. Fix your makeup with a little puff of loose, translucent, extra-fine powder applied with a wide, Kabuki brush and you’ll enjoy extra long-lasting hold!
