    Which type of concealer is the best for dry skin?

    When you have dry skin using stick concealers for blemishes and age spots can work well but for under eyes, we suggest a hydrating cream or liquid formula. Try and find products which have moisturising ingredients in them so that your makeup looks natural and not flaky.

    Why does my concealer look dry on my under-eyes?

    One thing to note is that if you keep layering makeup without taking care of your skin first, it will show up. The best way to target dryness around the eyes if your concealer isn’t sitting right is to follow a good skincare routine. Use a lightweight under eye cream or gel during the day and a deeply nourishing one at night. Also, avoid using cleansers that strip off your skin's natural oils and switch to cleansing balms.

    What are the best concealer tricks for dry skin?

    Here are the best concealer tricks for dry skin:

    1. Use an illuminating setting powder all over the face to set the concealer in place.
    2. To make sure your concealer lasts long without settling into your fine lines, lightly bake it in place using a loose powder.
    3. Use a hydrating or skin-blurring primer before applying makeup.
    4. Lightly pat the concealer into your skin with your fingers so that it warms up the product.
