They are available in creams, tubes, and sticks, and are rich in vitamins that help not only in lightening the skin tone but also in evening out the skin texture. The best concealer is supposed to be the one that is not soluble in water.
Just as the eye shadow, it is also essential for a concealer to match with the skin complexion and needs to be applied inside the nose-bridge and outer corners of the eyes. The concealer is required to be spread over the area gently so that it does not come into the grooves of the fine lines around the eye, which might cause an unnatural effect because of the congealing nature of a concealer. To test the suitability of the concealer according to the skin tone, individuals can apply some on the blue veins of the hands and if the vein is no longer seen, it proves that the concealer is ideal for the individual. Mixing the concealer with the foundation or an eye cream can further help in blending the make up colors and reflect a smooth skin.
Based on what an individual wants to conceal, they can select the concealer accordingly. While a color correcting concealer is effective to reduce the redness around the eye area, a yellow concealer is ideal for concealing bluish tinges. For reducing dark circles, individuals may opt for cream based concealer with a shade lighter than yellow. To hide a scar or cover a birthmark, thick opaque concealer can be the best solution, whereas medicated concealer are prescribed for covering pimples.
