How to: Concealer

Finished foundation only face.

Finished foundation only face.

My foundation steps can be found in this post. As you can tell in the picture above. I still have noticeable blemishes on my chin, below my nose and random spots.

I’m currently using Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage
in SC-1 although I think now that summer is here SC-2 would be better.

Sorry for the flash, but there is concealer on my hand.

I apply it to my hand to warm up the concealer, then I used Tarte’s concealer brush to pick up some of the color to apply to my face. Using light strokes I apply it to all the trouble areas.

I tend to have visible capillaries around my nostrils and since my skin is sort of translucent, I also apply some to my eyelids if I’m not doing a ton of eye work.

You can also apply to the tops of your lips (the cupid’s bow) and the bottom along the lip line to create the appearance of a more voluptuous lip… you know, like a porn star! But way classier, because we classy.

Set it and forget it.

Follow up with your favorite face powder to set your foundation and concealer. I put this on my face by rolling or lightly pressing it to my skin. I’m not using it like you would expect as I don’t want to rub off all my foundation. Some may choose to use a poof, whatever works!

BAM!

Bitch, I’m flawless
