Ever wonder how makeup artists get those perfectly defined brows, perfectly shaped lips and flawlessly applied eye makeup? Are you really getting the most benefit and use of your cream concealer?
Today's makeup tip and trick will answer all of those questions. I will be sharing with you three awesome ways to maximize the use of your cream concealer. If you have been using your cream concealer just to spot treat your blemishes and skin discoloration, then, you probably are missing out on some amazing tricks that your concealer can do for you. This trick will change the way you apply your concealer and change your look in the most subtle way.
Perfectly Shaped Lips/Cupid Bows
- So, to give you those perfectly shaped cupid bows (see the circled part on the pic above), reach for your brush and cream concealer. Dab your brush to your concealer making sure you cover the tip of the bristles
- Carefully draw the natural shape of your lips and give more detailed attention on shaping the curves of your cupid bows (the arch on your upper lips).
- Finally, slightly press the concealer with your fingers so that the warmth from your hands melt or blends the concealer to your skin further.
Perfectly Applied Eye Shadow or Winged Liner
- You might not see anything wrong on picture 1, but if you look closely, the darker shadow goes beyond the line where I drew my winged liner. You can go out with this look it is perfectly normal. However, if you want to put more emphasis on your winged liner, then grab your concealer and brush.
- Draw a line where you want to get that crisp winged look and blend your brush further down to make sure you erase any smudges from your eyeshadow.
- Finally, use your finger to blend your concealer to your skin.Tips: Remember to use your ring finger as explained on my previous post on concealing undereye circles.
Perfectly Defined Eyebrows
- After filling in your brows with brow pencil/powder/pomade, grab your brush and dab it to your cream concealer.
- Following the natural shape and arch of your brows, draw a line on your top and lower brow line. If you overdraw the part where your brows start, use the excess concealer from your brush to lighten that part out. Tips: For covering hair re-growth, dab more concealer and build up the coverage as you desire.
- Using your ring finger, blend the concealer to your skin making sure there are no harsh edges or weird patches.
