Concealers that Hit the Spot

Most everyone when looking in a mirror is drawn to one imperfection or multiple imperfections that they would like to eliminate or correct.  Whether it is sun spots, acne, dark circles under the eyes or a face that appears too round or flat, the proper concealer can do wonders.

A  cardinal rule with concealers is proper blending.  This can be done with your finger, a sponge or my favorite, a concealer brush.    For large areas of the face or neck area that need camouflage, a foundation stick is the best answer.  It provides a heavier, full coverage that can blot out all types of marks, from freckles and sun sports to large birth marks and scars.  These sticks also do a great job for contouring your face.  Choose a shade that is somewhat darker than your skin tone to contour under cheekbones, nose, forehead and chin areas.  A dusting of pressed or loose powder over top helps set this concealing method for very long wear and also makes it impervious to sweat and humidity.

For smaller areas to conceal, such as small scars, pock marks, small discolorations and redness patches, a mineral concealer stick is the easiest and most efficient.  Apply directly from thin tube to spot you wish to cover and lightly blend with fingertip.  You will be amazed how whatever horror you observed in the mirror suddenly disappears from sight in two seconds and will last until you wash it off!

For more mature under eye skin that has lines or wrinkles and some darkness or discoloration, the Mineral Illuminating Concealer is by far the best choice.  Click concealer up through pen into brush (the first time you use it takes several clicks; then after that, just a couple).  Lightly brush on under eyes and tap with fingertip to blend.  This very thin, mineral formula does not collect in lines and reflects light to minimize flaws and make skin look healthier.

For younger skin that has dark circles under eyes, the Dual Action Concealer is a great choice.  This tube contains a concealer and treatment in one to zap away dark circles while it conceals.  Apply a drop under each eye and blend gently with fingertip or concealer brush.

Sometimes a little concealer can go a long way in building confidence and security.  If you have questions, e-mail admin@cosmeticcosmos.com or request a sample when placing an order.
