Which type of concealer?

Lets be honest not many of us have flawless skin. Most of us have imperfections fear not! We can hide them, well make them less obvious! All you need is a concealer! So when you have a blemish or spot you will now know which concealer will cover it best. We all know someone who has used a concealer on a spot and its exaggerated it making it look crusty and nasty. Which type is best for my needs I hear you cry! Well read carefully as I'm going to go through the different types of concealer and what they are best at concealing.



Cover sticks
These are best used to hide minor imperfections such as tiny spots or a bit of darkness under the eyes. They come in loads of different colours to match your skin tone. They can be water based or oil based.



Medicated sticks
These contain antiseptics and drying agents which help speed up the healing times of spots. These are best for minor spots. Never use on a open spot. Trust me it doesn't look good and it stings Lol.



Liquid concealers.
Liquid concealers are better for the more mature skins. Using other concealers such as cover stick and cream concealers will make wrinkles and creases look worse as it can get clogged in the lines giving a cakey uneven look.



Cream concealers or camouflage concealers.
These are a creamy thick consistency which completely covers all flaws and blemishes. You can use it cover most blemishes including pigmentation marks, red marks such as birthmarks and dark circles. Also covers really well. These come in a variety of shades that can be blended to match your skin.



Correcting colour concealers 
Pigmentation creams can be used to help correct your natural skin tone. When using a colour corrector, only apply to the skin where needed. apply your foundation over the top. When applying use a tapping action to prevent the corrector cream smudging. This will ensure you get the most natural flawless look.


Green is used to counteract redness.
Lilac and Pink brightens a yellowish complexion.
Peach is used to conceal blue veins and pigmentation.
