5 Places on Your Face to Apply Concealer 5 Places on Your Face to Apply Concealer 5 Places on Your Face to Apply Concealer

When it comes to choosing a concealer, you’ll quickly realize that you have quite a few options. Here’s the thing: Depending on your skin type, your undertones, and the finish (matte, radiant, etc.) you’re going for, there’s a formula out there that can help you bring your ideal look to life. The concealer you should use will also depend on the areas you want to disguise. While you may traditionally think of concealer as something that’s meant to be used only on pesky areas where you break out, we’re here to tell you that this handy-dandy makeup product can serve you well when applied to a number of other spots. To help you better understand how to apply concealer, below we share the top five places on your face to use it. Grab your makeup bag and follow along!


Let’s get right into it!


Didn’t get enough beauty sleep last night? No worries! Simply reach for your concealer and get to work. If you want to hide dark under-eye circles, start off with a peach color-correcting concealer, like the one in the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Total Cover Color Correcting Kit. The pale peach color can help counteract the look of dark circles since they’re opposites on the color wheel. Use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender to dab the color-correcting concealer on in an inverted triangle shape under your eyes before topping it off with concealer and foundation. As far as concealing your under-eye area goes, choose a concealer that’s one shade lighter than your skin tone to help create a brightening effect.


Consider this your new favorite concealer hack! If you don’t have any eye primer on hand, concealer can be your best friend when it comes to creating a statement eye that doesn’t crease or fade. Eye primer can help create a smooth, even base for your eye makeup as well as help keep it in place—and concealer asks as a perfect stand-in. Use just a tiny dab of the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Glow Concealer on each lid before moving on to your eye shadow and eyeliner application. Trust us, this little trick will be especially useful during the summer or on days when you know you’ll be running around a lot!


As you’re probably well aware by now, you can use concealer to help hide blemishes. Just as you did with dark circles, start with a color correcting concealer—but this time, use a green concealer like the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Color Correcting Crayon in Green since green helps to neutralize the look of redness. Then, follow up with the rest of your face makeup routine, applying a non-comedogenic foundation and concealer. When all is said and done, you’ll be saying, “Blemish, what blemish?”


Notice your complexion looks a little on the lackluster side? We’ve got one piece of advice for you: Conceal, conceal, conceal! To help hide the look of dullness, apply a pale lavender color-correcting concealer to any areas that you think look like they need a little perking up. As with any other time you use a color-correcting concealer, using a lavender corrector calls for topping things off with a flesh-colored concealer, like the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Super-Blendable Multi-Use Concealer.


How is it that your favorite celebs always look like they have such radiant, glowing complexions? Well, they probably have facialists on speed dial...but you can fake it ‘til you make it with the right face makeup routine! Start off by applying a perfecting makeup primer, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Glow Lock Makeup Primer. Apply the radiant-finish L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation overtop, using a makeup blender for seamless application. Then, use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Total Cover Concealing and Contour Kit to brighten any areas of your face that need a little lift. Set your makeup with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Sweep & Lock Loose Setting Face Powder and you’ll be good to glow.
