Concealer is that makeup product in our vanity which we can’t thank enough for its kind existence. It literally can turn out to be the best thing that has happened to the cosmetic industry. And when it comes to its application, it can work like magic and make you appear flawless and presentable in a go. It is specifically designed and formulated to conceal those skin imperfections such as dark spots, acne marks, redness, dark circles or any other imperfection you may find. Just a single stroke of the concealer and the job can be done. Until now we were only aware of certain uses of a concealer but in reality, there’s so much more to it than hiding those imperfections. There are so many surprising uses of concealer you didn’t know about and it’s time you know about them and thank it for its very existence. From being used as eyelid primer to being used on lashes for a fuller look, a concealer can be used in so many ways. Keep on reading to know about them.
1. Prime your lids with a concealer
Not everybody likes to invest in an eyelid primer, but agree or not, it’s definitely a need to have a primer in your vanity as it makes your eyeshadow stay longer and give it a sheer base to be applied on. Well, you may be happy to know that a concealer can do this job perfectly. By applying a tiny bit of concealer on your lids, you can give the eyeshadow a very sheer base to be applied on and prevent all the oil and sweat from accumulating on your eyelids.
2. Give your lips a fuller appearance
Who doesn’t like giving their lips a fuller appearance? Well, all the girls do. This trick also helps in intensifying the color of your lipstick which easily fades away after 2 3 hours of its application. Before applying any lipstick to your lips make sure to apply a thin layer of concealer to the entire lips right until the outer corner. Blend the concealer nicely using a beauty blender or anything that can help you blend the concealer. After completing the process, apply that lipstick of yours and you will notice your lips are looking fuller and your lipstick is appearing brighter than usual which is a good thing.
3. Make your lashes look fuller
Fuller and luscious lashes are what we all girls wish for. But unfortunately, not all girls are blessed with one but thanks to mascara, they have made our lives very sorted and easier. However, sometimes even mascara fails to do the job and doesn’t do the needful. And this when a concealer can prove to be your savior and get the job done for you. Take a Q tip and dip it into a concealer, then apply a nice and even coat of it to your lashes. After doing this step, take your mascara and apply double or as many coats of it as you like to your lashes. You will see your lashes are looking fuller, voluminous and luscious that are ready to make a statement.
4. Can do the contouring well
We all have gone through situations where we end up buying a wrong shade of concealer. And before you start having thoughts of discarding it, listen to this. If the concealer is 2 or 3 shades darker than your skin tone then it can serve as a contour. Yes, you heard it right! You can use it as a contour and apply it to the high points of your face like cheeks, nose, forehead and chin area. Blend it nicely using a beauty blender and you are good to go.
