The Secret To Concealing Correctly...
Many people assume that the more concealer you put over the top of redness or dark circles, the more flawless your skin will appear. News flash: This is not always the case. In fact, it's almost never the case, especially if there's texture involved (like fine lines or blemishes).
Using less product, in the right correctional tone can totally neutralise the pigment you wish to cover, while still achieving that natural look you have been wanting. This is where I introduce one of my favourite products to use on clients: Kryolan's Concealer Wheel.
But why would you need so many different coloured concealers when you are just one person, right? The fact of the matter is, our face and body isn’t really just the one particular shade. Sometimes we lack radiance, breakout from time to time, develop bruising, experience broken capillaries and don’t get enough sleep. Using different tones around these areas will be an absolute game changer - trust me.
What You Need To Know About Using A Concealer Wheel:
Now, Kryolan has been super generous with how much product is in this Concealer Wheel. However, it is a dryer formula than your usual concealer tube. This is so the product doesn’t move around on the skin once applied (Kryolan is technically a professional artistry brand, after all).
For the ultimate flawless finish, be sure to hydrate and prep your skin (especially your under eyes) to avoid creasing, separating and fading. A rich, creamy moisturiser or primer like Bobbi Brown's Vitamin Enriched Face Base is ideal for keeping the top layers of the skin plump for the concealer to melt into. And yes, it's good for oily skin too.
I recommend applying this product before foundation. For softer, lighter coverage, simply use a fluffy (clean) eyeshadow brush to apply the product to your areas of concern, or use a flat synthetic brush for more precise application.
