Make-Up Diaries: How to wear concealer (In three ways)

I've never been a concealer wearing girl. I was blessed with amazing eyes that hardly EVER (and I really mean that) get dark circles under them. It may happen at most once a year. After noticing (watching youtube videos and reading blogs) that concealer gives you more of a smooth eye look, I gave in and went to Sephora to get my skin color matched. And if your interested I use the bareMinerals Stroke of Light Eye Brightener Concealer.

Coverage with Brush Method

This is the method I use everyday for work. Now the key here is the extend (when blending) the concealer all the way to your temple. Tip when doing this: Move the brush in small circles to make the concealer more blended. Also make sure the the concealer is around your skin tone color. Otherwise it will stand out and look weird.

Triangle Method

There is a claim out there that wearing concealer in an inverted triangle reduces the look (possible making them nonexistent) of dark circles under the eye.  This is especially helpful for college student pulling all nighters or for the everyday woman (man too) who has to work late one night or has a new baby at home.

Sponge and Pat Method

Take your sponge and run it under water for a few seconds. Then squeeze the excess water out of it. This is the look I go for when CJ and I go out on dates for the dewy look. Place the concealer under the eye and blend in with damp sponge. It may feel like it is taking the concealer off your face but I promise it isn't.

  1. I use concealer some times, but I just use my fingers to apply it:) Thanks for sharing this. Will try to use a brush instead.
