Are you curious about the difference between foundation and concealer? Even though concealer is very similar to regular foundation, the main difference lies in its thicker consistency and higher pigmentation, which allows it to cover specific problem areas of the skin. While foundation is usually applied to the entire face, concealer targets a specific issue – a blemish, dark circles or hyperpigmentation. That’s exactly why foundation and concealer form a unique duo.
If you really want to be able to rely on your concealer, focus on picking the right shade as well as a suitable texture and type that works for your skin.
Whether your skin is oily, dry, problematic or mature, the right consistency makes sure that your concealer blends into your skin perfectly.
Concealer sticks or pens are the ideal choice for oily and problem skin. These come under the full coverage concealer category and just one layer can cover acne, noticeable imperfections and redness around the mouth in one swipe.
Tip: If acne is something that you have to deal with on a regular basis, try some of the best concealers for spots formulated with salicylic acid and other beneficial ingredients to soothe your skin and help dry out pimples faster.
A concealer with a sponge or applicator is ideal for dry skin, as it doesn’t dry out the skin. Thanks to its sheer and lighter consistency it usually has less coverage than a concealer stick, but it layers and blends well without settling into fine lines, so it acts as the perfect under-eye concealer for mature skin.
Tip: For very dry skin or noticeable wrinkles, try a hydrating concealer with hyaluronic acid.
A semi-liquid concealer combines the properties and benefits of a concealer stick and liquid concealer in one. It provides more coverage than a liquid concealer, but unlike a concealer stick, it’s suitable for the eye area, to cover broken veins, blemishes and redness.
Tip: Are you into natural makeup products? Try a natural or mineral concealer packed with plant oils, herbal extracts and concealing mineral pigments.
Do you want to mask specific imperfections, brighten your complexion or accentuate the contours of your face? When choosing the right shade of concealer, it’s important to focus on what you want to use it for. You can either stick to the shade of your skin or reach for a colour-correcting concealer that targets specific skin issues, such as blemishes, dark circles under the eyes or redness.
A green concealer for acne, a yellow one for dark circles or an orange one for the eye area? We’ll give you advice on how to navigate them all.
Tip: Do you need to target more imperfections at once? A concealer palette with several nude and colour-correcting shades is the answer, as it allows you to alternate between shades depending on your skin’s current needs.
