A good concealer can prove very useful and pretty life saving when you are looking to cover up pesky pimples, spots, any sign of pigmentation or those dark circles. A perfect concealer hides away the imperfections and blends seamlessly with your skin tone, going unnoticed and creating a flawless complexion.


It’s important to know that a concealer act as a highlighter, attracting light as well as reflecting it. Choosing the right concealer that is too light will result in “racoon eyes” if used to conceal dark circles—it can also cast an undesirable grayish tone over the skin.

To cover dark circles perfectly mix a small amount of your foundation with the concealer. The concealer should be two shades lighter than your natural skin tone. It will give you more accurate color match and will ensure a natural look by blending seamlessly with your overall skin tone and preventing any distinct contrast in color, tone or texture.

Always try to use a yellow-based concealer—it comes in different shades. Yellow concealer is ideal for covering up redness—so it’s good to mask any pinks, veins, or pimples.

Finding the right under-eye concealer may take some time as well as trial and error. However, it will be well worth the effort when you find something that works for you. Normally, peach concealer is a great choice if you need to remove any blue/gray from under your eyes. It’s important to know which tones work for which imperfections.

It’s also very important to keep in mind that liquid concealer is best suited for light coverage and used on delicate areas of the face.

Ladies, feeling beautiful is your right and it’s very important to take the time to find the products that help you achieve your goals – keep in mind what I’ve outlined in this blog and good luck!
