Have you ever despaired when you have tried to cover up a nasty pimple with concealer and are still seeing some redness peeking through? Or you never seem to really
cover up those dreaded under eye circles?
There is a very simple trick that all makeup pros use to correct this. It’s all about the magic of opposite colours on the colour wheel
cancelling each other out, and in doing so, colour correcting the blemish or mark. A red pimple will be cancelled out by using its opposite colour green. And those blueish tinges under your eyes will disappear if you counter them with yellow, peach or orange.
But concealing is not only about colour correcting. The best concealer covers discolorations, lightens dark areas, hides blemishes, and works together with your foundation to give you the even skin tone and flawless finish you’ve always wanted.
Most of us are guilty of just grabbing and dabbing on our concealer and hoping for the best. But there’s a lot more to it than just that. Firstly, you have to pick the right concealer for your skin type and cover-up requirements. Then you need to ensure that you are prepping your face and applying your concealer properly for a perfect cover up without any uneven patches or cakiness.

work for you and your skin…
