How to apply concealer the right way

But in addition to its traditional uses,it can be used in a number of weird and downright obscure beauty hacks. From hiding unwanted eyebrow hairs to creating fuller-appearing lips, concealer is a magical makeup tool.

For the eyes

Use a concealer to highlight the high lid and all around the eye brows. It will mask any newly grown hairs and will give the eyebrows back a fresh shape.

Using a fluffy brush, apply a long-wearing concealer on the eye lid to provide a great base for an opaque shadow look. Long wearing concealer is a good base for shadow but don’t glob it on! A fluffy brush will soften the amount you deposit to the eye and give sheer coverage to the lid.

For the lips

If you apply some concealer to a lip, you can use it to enhance the look of lips but also neutralize your lip colors.

If you want to achieve fuller-looking lips, use a matte lipstick of any color, add a small amount of concealer at the center on your lips using a blotting motion to create a 3-D look. Applying concealer all over your lips before you apply lipstick can change the shade of a lipstick.

Take  a Q-tip with a lighter shade of concealer to clean around the edges of the lips for sharper lipstick and to make lips look fuller.

For the face

Concealer can be used for highlighting above upper cheekbone and above the brow. Use for light contouring. Apply to upper cheeks bone above to jawbone. Simple easy sculpting.

You can also use concealers that are darker than your shade for contouring the face, to enhance my cheekbones and nose.
