A Guide to Using A Multi-Tone Correctional Concealer.

A Guide to Using A Multi-Tone Correctional Concealer.

Most women use a single colour stick or liquid concealer and this is fine for everyday covering of dark shadows. However many women use a concealer shade that is too light when trying to reduce under eye circles. The skin around the eyes is naturally a little darker than the surrounding skin so using a shade that is too pale looks very unnatural and results in a 'Racoon Eye Effect'. A single shade used all over the complexion can also make the face look flat and one dimensional


 For that special occasion or to correct specific blemishes and colour problems try using a multi-tonal concealer. If used correctly this product can achieve outstanding results.


 The appearance of age spots, birthmarks, blotchiness, broken capillaries, eye-area darkness, eyelid darkness, freckles, and scars can all be diminished by using such a product. It blurs imperfections by using opposite tones to neutralise imperfections.


Understanding Neutralising colors:


Here's a guideline as to how to use it.


Beige: Use biege to conceal flaws and shadows-also brightens the under-eye area;


Mint Green : Use to neutralise red tones on the skin. Use this for covering blemishes, red blotches, rosacea, port-wine stains;


Yellow : Used to conceal bluish bruises, under-eye circles and mild red tones on the face, bruise / sun damage / pregnancy mask / dark spots;


Lavender:Used to normalize yellow-coloured imperfection such as sallow complexions and yellow bruises. It can also help conceal very dark under-eye circles and dark spots on bronze skin tones;


How to apply Corrective Colour Concealers:


Step 1 - Dot a neutralising concealer on carefully and blend with your fingertips slightly past the edges of the problem.  Let set.;


Step 2 - Apply concealer that matches the colour of your skin tone over the layer of neutralising concealer. (You can step this step if you choose and go straight to foundation application, but it is recommended to apply a neutral colour concealer) Gently pat on a thin layer with your fingertips. Feather out concealer slightly beyond the edges of the condition. Let set.


Step 3 - Follow with a foundation matched to your skin tone. Pat on foundation with a sponge or fingertips in a downward motion so you don't make the hairs on your face stand up. Be careful not to rub in the concealer. Allow the product to set for a few minutes and then apply powder.
