Concealer is applied to the skin after foundation to hide any blemishes or imperfections. However, if applied incorrectly, it can sometimes accentuate those imperfections. For the best results, find a concealer that is buildable and always use a light hand when applying. For blemishes, look for a concealer with a matte finish that matches your skin tone. A lighter concealer with a radiant finish will highlight, rather than conceal, blemishes. Many full-coverage concealers don't need a color corrector underneath to fully conceal breakouts. If you have acne-prone skin, always look for an oil-free formula to avoid causing further breakouts.
