Beauty tricks: How concealer can give you a perfect look


There are a tonne of dazzling foundations suitable for all complexions available on the beauty counter to give you flawless skin. But there are also days when you might not need a full coverage look, but with the help of one fail-safe beauty product, you can still look your best.

Skipping foundation and using concealer on key areas of the face is one of the easiest tricks to get flawless skin in a flash. It’s a great method for a quick ‘beat’ in the morning that will leave you looking naturally fresh-faced, and finished.

By just applying concealer under the eyes, down and around the nose and on any areas of redness or discolouration on the jawline, you can save yourself time, and still leave the house looking amazing.

How to cheat a foundation-free finish

Apply a full coverage concealer sparingly under the eyes, around the nose and on any areas of redness or discolouration on the jawline and blend well. Use a Beauty Blender Sponge for an even finish, especially if you’re applying on the move – for hygiene reasons. Or just pat the product on to the areas that need correcting then blend into the skin with the fingertips.

What concealer?

This foolproof method works best if you use a full coverage concealer. Opt for a long-lasting one which has a creamy full-coverage finish. 

Finish with bronzer

For the final flourish, use a light bronzer to dust in a halo, around the outside of the face and to enhance the cheeks to give your skin added warmth without any extra coverage.
