The difference between concealer and corrector
There is a common misconception that concealer and concealer are completely interchangeable products that have the same masking properties. However, this is not the case. Corrector is a more dense tool that can mask severe inflammation and acne. Thanks to salicylic acid, which is part of the composition, they relieve inflammation and, at the same time, have a strong drying effect, which can subsequently lead to peeling of the skin. In this regard, this tool can be used only in inflamed areas, but not in areas with increased pigmentation and not to mask bruises under the eyes. To correct these shortcomings, it is better to use a concealer, which, thanks to its composition, has a more gentle effect on the skin. He does not dry it and that is why it can be used even on delicate skin around the eyes. Most concealers have a moisturizing effect, which is especially true for sensitive areas.
Features of selection
Like any concealer, the concealer should be selected taking into account the color of the skin and under the problem that it should hide. To mask the circles under the eyes, more orange and orange-apricot colors are suitable, they even out the tone and blend well with the foundation. Those whose complexion is more dull and gray should pay attention to beige shades, they will perfectly hide the imperfections and refresh the complexion, making it more healthy and radiant. Girls with pale skin should avoid dark and saturated shades, pale pink and pale peach colors will do their job perfectly. It is also worth paying attention to the form of release of the concealer: so dense sticks are more difficult to apply to the skin around the eyes, in contrast to more liquid products.
How to apply to mask dark circles under the eyes?
Since the skin around the eyes is thinner and more tender than the rest on the face, it is worth treating it with special attention and caution. Masking dark circles is a very delicate action, as the concealer should not only even out the color, but also not emphasize facial wrinkles. To achieve maximum fusion, colored peach and orange color mowers should be applied under the foundation, and beige on the contrary on top of the foundation. The tool should be applied in the form of a triangle, and not a semicircle, such a method during shading will more effectively mask them. The borders should be well shaded, and after that apply a foundation that completely hides the border of applying the concealer.
According to reviews of those who use the concealer on an ongoing basis, this is an indispensable tool to mask minor imperfections. Also, with its help, you can slightly change the shape of the nose, if you apply a small amount of concealer on the wings, and from above use the usual foundation.
