Conceal, Don’t Let Them Know!

Conceal, Don’t Let Them Know!

The early bird may catch the worm, but I bet it also needs a ton of under-eye concealer.- Nicole Richie

I can never go anywhere without using a concealer , be it to cover dark-circles, brighten parts of my face or to spot treat. It’s like a holy-grail product for me and I panic when I run out of it.

Even on days when you don’t feel like doing much makeup , concealer is your best friend, you can use it as an under-eye concealer or a spot-treatment on ‘no makeup’ makeup days.

Here are some of my favorite concealers:

  1. Maybelline Fit Me Concealer – My Shade : Medium 25 

There are 6 shades in the Fit Me range , #10 Light , #15 Fair , #20 Sand , #25 Medium , #30 Cafe and #35 Deep. It retails for around $6.

I like long romantic walks in the makeup aisle.

Color-correcting products help us cancel out any problem area such as dark under-eyes , blemishes , redness, discoloration etc.

When  two colors , opposite to each other on the  color wheel are mixed, layered or blended together , neutralize each other.

There are about 6 shades that correct problem areas and are supposed to be used little at a time , remember with these products , the lesser the better.
