Makeup Basics Concealing and Highlighting

Episode 5 of our makeup basic series is up on our YouTube Channel. This time we came up with basics of Concealing and Highlighting.

Concealer is a type of product that is used to mask dark circles, age spots, large pores, and other small blemishes visible on the skin. It is similar to foundation, but thicker and used to hide different pigments by blending the imperfection into the surrounding skin tone.

It is used after correcting your dark circles or pigmented areas with orange corrector (for blue and purple undertones) and a Green corrector (for redness). We have a demo video up on our youtube you can click here to learn colour correction.

Best tool to apply concealer is by your ring finger. If you are using a cream concealer try to first warm it up between your fingers and then apply it on your dark circle. Always blend it in a dabbing motion and with a light hand. Make sure you are making a triangle while dabbing this will give you a good coverage.

Highlighting is used to brighten the highest points of your face and also those places where the concealer has been applied. Like on the bridge of the nose, under eye area, cheekbones, chin area, the cupid’s bow and below your contours.

Highlighting brings light to your face and gives you that dewy effect. Products which are used for highlighting can be powder or cream or liquid.
