To apply concealer, dot the concealer directly on top of whatever it is you want covered up, then blend it in using either fingers, a sponge or a brush. Start sparingly, as you can always apply more later if whatever you're covering isn't concealed enough. But it depends on what you are covering up. Blemishes require a slight adjustment of technique—apply concealer directly on the blemish only, and then gently pat in color with a sponge to diffuse and blend.
Concealer goes anywhere you would like to cover up. This includes blemishes, discoloration, scars, undereye circles, and redness. You can also use it on your cheekbones, jawline and nose for contouring or on your eyelids as a primer for eyeshadow.
Makeup is for everyone—and anyone! The same concealer works just as well on men as it does on women, so go for it!
If you're trying to reshape eyebrows using concealer, it's best to choose a thicker formula that will cling to brow hairs and last all day. Try something like Maybelline Superstay Full Coverage Concealer, which is guaranteed to last up to 24 hours. If you're looking for something to simply highlight the brow bone, use a lighter weight concealer like Instant Eraser Concealer.
Choose an under eye concealer shade that matches your exact skin color—or go a shade lighter. You always want to apply under eye concealer exactly where you need it, right on the dark circles under eyes. Not just around it, not just inside it. Exactly on it. Dab on a small amount of concealer in the innermost corner, then use your ring finger to pat concealer into the darkened area that needs coverage. Apply it before foundation or tinted moisturizer, so you can easily blend in for best results.
