We all want that flawless skin that we see in the movies but sometimes real dermis is a bit more stubborn. In real life, bags, blemishes, dark spots, redness, and under-eye cycles get in the way of that picture-perfect dermis.
So for that photo-finish look, one of our main weapons is concealers. Best concealer for dark spots help blend into your skin and camouflage all that unnecessary discoloration.
It is similar to foundation but thicker and used to hide different pigments by blending your imperfections into your surrounding skin tone
Choosing the right shade can be daunting. Picking a shade that’s too light can leave you looking like a raccoon. While picking a shade that’s too dark, can leave you looking like you have mud on your face.
The best method is to match it to your neck, which without sun damage reveals your true color. When using it to cover dark circles, use a color that leans towards the yellow/warm family.
This uses the color theory of using opposite colors to cancel each other out. For blemishes and dark spots, find one that is slightly lighter than your foundation.
The texture is important too. Creamy formulas that come in sticks and pots are best for hiding spots. Light weight concealers, on the other hand are great for under the eye. They don’t crease or clump.
Applying cream can be tricky for anyone who’s not a make-up artist. Here are a couple tricks. For a natural look, apply your cream before your foundation.
After hiding all your problem areas, make sure to blend some concealer around the sides of your nose. This is to protect your appearance from unflattering shadows. Make sure to steer clear from blending into your smile lines. It’s concealer, so the less noticeable look is the best look.
