Where Do You Most Use Concealer?

Ahhh the concealer.  A small but powerful product in your makeup bag - one not to be underestimated!

They can make you look wide awake when you've had a far-less-than-perfect night's sleep.  They can hide the Mount Zitsuvius that erupts on your chin every month.  It really is worth finding the perfect concealer for you - once you've found the right one, you'll never look back!

Over or Under?

There's a few schools of thought surrounding the application of concealer and whether it should go over or under foundation.  We reckon it depends on what you're concealing. 

Less is more when creating a great makeup base, so you want as few layers as possible.  When covering dark circles, always use concealer (and a corrector if necessary) before foundation.  Dab the product along the affected area and blend well.  You might find when it's time to apply foundation that you actually don't need to apply it on top of the concealer, but that you can blend where the two meet.  Have a play and find out what works best for you.

For blemishes, pimples and flaws you'll want to apply concealer on top of your foundation and blend outwards with a brush.  For this type of concealment you'll want your concealer to match your foundation shade.  Finish with powder.

I use concealer every day as I tend to use a BB cream instead of foundations, so I need the concealer to get some coverage that BB cream doesn't give - mostly for the eye area to try lighten the eyes up a little and disguise the dark circles a little. I struggle to find one that doesn't cake and amplify the eye wrinkles/fine lines though. It's sooooo hard to find a good concealer when you're in your 40's that is made to work with natural ageing (and tiredness!).... would love to trial this one

I use for under eyes and the occasional spot. I don't use it every day though as I find some actually make dark circles look worse. I'd love to try this one though - I am intrigued by the elastic formula!
