When to Use Concealer For Different Skin Issues

Updated on October 10, 2017

If you have any type of skin imperfection, such as birthmarks, scars, sunspots, uneven skin tone or blemishes, then using a concealer is a great way to hide these beauty blunders. The best part is no one needs to know. Many of the concealers are water-resistant, therefore, they will stay put and make you look your very best.

You will also want to determine the right color of concealer to use, but it depends on what you are trying to hide. There is a variety of corrective concealers you can use. Some are multicolored and some are thicker than others are. However, which one is best for your skin problem? Continue reading to find out.

Concealer for Blemishes and Acne

One of the problems women have is blemishes. With the right concealer, hiding blemishes is a breeze. Best of all, no one will even know your skin is being temperamental. The best type of concealer to hide blemishes and acne prone skin is one that is on the drier side. This is because if you use one with excess moisture, it will only add even more moisture to your skin. This will only exacerbate the problem.

You should also opt for a concealer that is close to the same color as your skin tone. The reason is, when you choose a concealer that is too light, it will draw attention to your blemish.

Concealer for Dark Under Eye Circles

Another problem women have is dark under eye circles. They make you look tired and older than you are, so it’s a natural instinct to try to hide them. A good concealer to hide these puppies is a yellow colored concealer.

Since dark circles are bluish in color, the yellow helps to balance the discolored skin in the delicate eye area. The yellow concealer can also be used for moles, age spots, and tattoos.

Concealer for Birthmarks, Rosacea, and Bruises

A great concealer for birthmarks, rosacea and bluish red bruises is a sheer, green colored concealer. The green helps to neutralize the overly reddish color produced by these skin imperfections.

The opaque concealer goes on smooth and blends easily into the skin. You can then apply your regular foundation over the sheer concealer for even more coverage.

How to Apply Concealer

With clean hands and fingers, take the finger; get a good amount on the fingertip. In a dotting motion, apply the concealer. Once the concealer is applied, carefully blend in the concealer outward, so it extends beyond the place where you applied it.

Once this sets, apply your foundation like normal, but be careful not to rub the concealer. The finishing step is to set with powder.

Follow these helpful tips to hide any or all of your skin imperfections. With these tips, you won’t have to worry about any of your skin imperfection. When you wake up with dark eye circles or a blemish on your face, you won’t have to run and hide. That's because you now have the tools you need to handle these beauty flaws.
