Here Are 6 Ways To Use A Concealer You Probably Never Considered

When we think about concealer the only thing that comes to our mind is dark circles, blemishes, and pimples. But there is so much more that your concealer can do. From being an eyeshadow primer to the prime ingredient of your very own tinted moisturiser, your concealer is literally a life saviour. Here are six more ways to use your concealer.

1. Apply it on eyelids to make your eyeshadow last longer.

There's nothing worse than putting on an eyeshadow without priming a lid. You don't always need an eyeshadow primer to make your makeup sits well. A concealer works just as good as any other base too.

Hack It

Apply concealer all over your lids and blend. Use loose powder to set it. Go about your smokey eye routine as usual.

2. Out of foundation? Make your own tinted moisturiser.

We've all been there: we have to head out for a party and there is very little product left in our foundation bottle.

Hack It

Take 3-4 pumps of concealer and mix it with your day cream. Apply it on your face using the dot method and blend it using a Beauty Blender. Set it with powder and then apply blush.

P.S: If you have oily skin, use a smaller ratio of moisturiser. 

3. Apply concealer before your mascara to add volume to your eyelashes.

As much as we love falsies, we can't wear them all the time. So if volume is what you're looking for, you have to try this concealer hack (it's Kardashian approved by the way).

Hack It

Prime your eyelashes with a few coats of concealer using either a wand or a small brush. Wait for it to set and then apply mascara.

4. Use your concealer for perfectly angled eyebrows.

Having perfectly shaped eyebrows is the new obsession. Did you know your concealer can help you in achieving those sharp brows? Plus it's really helpful on days you haven't had time for threading.

Hack It

Trace a short line parallel to the top edge of your brow with concealer and blend it gently with your finger or a brush. Fill in your brows as usual.

5. Cover your lips with concealer before you apply lipstick for that extra definition!

I'd be up for a hack that doesn't require lip fillers, wouldn't you? Applying a concealer on your pout has two benefits: it works as a primer which is great for your lipstick to settle onto your lips without creasing.

Hack It

Apply concealer all over your lips blend it with a flat brush or even a sponge. Use a lip liner outline your lips and then apply lipstick.

6. Use a concealer that's darker than your natural skin tone for contouring.

If you have a shade of concealer that doesn't match your skin tone, don't just throw it away. Instead, use it to contour your features. 

How To

Find a tone that's 1-2 shades darker than your skintone. Dab it to your cheekbones, sides of your nose, forehead and chin. Make sure you blend it really well.
