Find the right concealer for every beauty blemish.

Unless you are one of the lucky ones, you've most likely had a skin ailment you've struggled to cover at some point in your life. Whether it’s a pimple, dark circles, redness or a scar, concealer is your best friend. But which concealer do you use? ​​Our guide to concealer has an option for all skin types and issues, so you are sure to find what you need. Selecting the correct concealer and colour corrector is the base for flawless make-up, no matter how many blemishes and skin imperfections you have. It is important to know your skin type so your concealer will complement your make-up. Continue reading our easy-to-read concealer guide to find the right concealer for your complexion.

Liquid Concealer

Suitable skin types: normal, combination, oily, sensitive, and blemish-prone

A liquid concealer is extremely versatile, perfect for covering blemishes and using on wrinkled areas, as it won’t cake up and is unlikely to cause breakouts.

The coverage is buildable and you can find a liquid concealer in any finish to suit your skin type.

Stick Concealer

Suitable skin types: Normal, dry and sensitive skin

The thick consistency of a stick concealer works well on dark under-eye circles, and redness around the nose and mouth.

If you are prone to breakouts, avoid stick concealers as they often contain waxes and oils.

Cream Concealer

Suitable skin types: Normal, dry, combination, and sensitive skin

Providing a medium to full coverage, a cream concealer hides severe discolourations extremely well.

Blending the product is extremely important to minimise the chances of creasing.

Once you have found the correct concealer, having an arsenal of different colours will make sure every dark circle, blemish and any discolouration is hidden. When using a coloured concealer, apply under your foundation on top of your normal primer, unless using a skin coloured shade.

Colour Correcting Concealer

Green: a green spot concealer will hide any redness such as a pimple, an acne scar or small patches of red discolouration

Purple: add a healthy glow to your yellow toned skin with a purple concealer

Pink: perfect for masking tired, puffy and dark under eye circles

Yellow: mask veins, under eye circles or bruises with a yellow-based concealer

Orange: create flattering angles on your face by contouring with an orange concealer

White: used in the inner and outer corners of your eyes and a dab down the centre of your nose, a white concealer can subtly make you look more awake

Neutral: if you do not have many skin problems but wish to hide a small imperfection, a neutral concealer will do the job effectively.

The trick to flawless make-up is to start with healthy skin. Visiting a beauty salon regularly will keep your skin healthy. If you are in the Newcastle area, visit these beauty salons for all your skincare needs.
