This year I’ve made it my goal to share more makeup tips and hacks with you! One of my favorite parts of being a makeup artist and beauty YouTuber is being able to experiment with makeup and find new, unconventional ways to use it. Today, I’m telling you all about my favorite concealer hacks! These tricks are all super easy—I use a lot of them in my everyday makeup routine! You can read about them below, or watch my video!
HACK 1: Use concealer instead of primer on your eyes. Pat concealer across your eyelids using your ring finger to brighten your eyes and make your eyeshadows pop!
HACK 2: Highlight your browbone with concealer! Apply concealer with a small flat brush under your eyebrows to visually lift your eyes and make your eye makeup stand out.
HACK 3: Mix red lipstick and concealer to hide dark circles. Pick up some red lipstick with a brush and mix it with concealer on the back of your hand until you have a light salmon color. Apply under your eyes to color correct dark circles. Pat more concealer beneath your eyes to completely conceal and brighten!
HACK 4: Sharpen your cat eye by using a flat brush to clean up the line of your eyeliner. By using a lighter color, you also make the line pop!
HACK 5: Pinpoint conceal. Rather than use foundation to cover imperfections, use a small brush to apply concealer to problem areas and imperfections. (I like to do this after my foundation, so I don’t use too much product!)
HACK 6: Highlight and contour. Use a lightweight concealer in a lighter shade to highlight the center of your face and your cheekbones. In a darker shade, contour the hollows of your cheeks, the sides of your nose, and right under your hairline and jawline. Blend well, moving from the lighter to darker areas!
HACK 7: Neutralize your natural lip color. Apply lightweight concealer to your lips and blend, then use your favorite lipstick for a more pigmented look.
HACK 8: Clean up lipstick using concealer! Use a flat brush to apply concealer along the edges of your lips for a perfectly smooth line.
