Whether it is the extended exposure to sun, pollution or whatsoever reason it is that you have got dark spots and breakouts on your face, makeup has got you covered. With the right beauty products, you can make all these facial flaws go disappear in no time. Without further ado, let’s read on the expert’s guide on how to conceal dark spots using makeup.
Cover-up with a Concealer
When it comes to hiding those dark circles and dark spots on your face, Concealer is a superhero that comes to your rescue straight away. Whether you have a light color or dark color skin, there is a perfect Concealer available out there for every skin. While shopping online or offline, you will find there are many different types of Concealers for different skin concerns. You need to pick one that best addresses your concern.
- Color Correcting: Choose an opposite color, as per the color wheel, to cover up dark spots and make your skin even looking. Orange tinted Concealer is used to hide dark spots. If you want to add some brightness to your skin, use yellow tinted Concealer. If you want to cover up under eye circles, the simple formula is to choose a Concealer shade that is slightly darker than your actual skin tone but lighter than the dark spots you want to hide.
- Applying it right: First of all, wash your face using a facial cleanser. Next, gently apply orange Concealer on to your dark spots and other blemishes in the ‘X’ pattern. Use a right Concealer brush to blend the product properly onto your skin. Don’t use fingers as it may transfer more bacteria further adding to your skin problems. Apply yellow brightener and blend it well with the orange Concealer for radiant looking and flawless skin.
A quick takeaway: You can try different shades from Concealer palette to find the best match for your skin complexion.
- Finishing it with a highlighter: You can apply your skin-matching foundation and then go ahead with the rest of your makeup routine. Or you can simply apply Concealer and finish it with a creamy highlighter onto your cheekbones. That’s enough to make you look selfi-ready. L’Oreal Paris Magic Lumi Highlighter Concealer gives your face subtle glow and accentuates your features. It is available in three tones: fair, light, and medium. Try and find the right tone for your complexion.
Choosing a right type of Concealer
You will find Concealers in liquid, cream, pencils, sticks and other forms. You need to choose a right type depending on your skin complexion, coverage requirement, and the purpose. Typically, pencils and sticks (like Urban Decay 24/7 Concealer Pencil) ensure better coverage than cream Concealers. And Cream Concealers are better than liquids.
However, if you have oily skin and got large pores, using a liquid Concealer is recommended. Liquid Concealers are also the best choice to cover up under eye darkness. If you want to cover up dark spots, pencils and sticks are the best. And use cream Concealers to cover up acne and dull patches on your skin the most effective way.
