Thank heavens for eyeshadow primer. I went out of town last weekend and forgot mine and was lost without it. Not only does primer make your shadow go on smooth and bright, it also helps it last all day long. As it turns out, eyeshadow primer doesn’t have to be used just on our eyes. It has multiple purposes that can work on other parts of our face!

  1. Under your eyes: Eyeshadow primer used under the eyes can help our concealer to stay on longer and prevents it from creasing.
  2. On your brows: Sometimes after a long day I will catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror and will notice that my brow powder has smudged and my brows look “yikes.” Take a small amount of
    primer and wipe it through your brows, let it dry, and then put on your brow product. You will have perfect brows all day!
  3. On pimples: Pimples never like to stay covered up by concealer and foundation. Dabbing a bit of eye primer on top of them before concealer and foundation can ensure these spots stay covered all day!

Who knew eyeshadow primer was so versatile?

Concealer is a life-saver, but only if you know how to use it to your advantage. It took me a while to master the art of concealer! Finding the right color for you can be tricky, plus applying it the right way is an art of its own. Here are my top 5 tips on everything concealer related.

  1. Color is key: There are shades of concealer that will help neutralize your specific skin tone. If you have dark purple spots around your eyes, use red concealer to cover them up and neutralize the dark circles. To find what concealer color works best for you, look at the undertone of your under eye circles.hey-girl-those-dark-circles-really-make-your-eyes-pop
  2. Different concealer formulas work better on different parts of your face: You may need a few different concealers in different colors to help cover everything. You can use a concealer that is skin tone, but having the right formula and color for the job makes a huge difference.
  3. When to apply: Apply concealer after foundation to prevent brushing the concealer away. It also helps you use less concealer! Top it all off with powder.
  4. Let your concealer set: Let your concealer “cook” or melt onto your face for a few minutes. Your body heat will warm it up, and it may change color or texture a bit. After it has melted a bit, then you can work with it and blend it into your foundation.
  5. If you like to keep things simple: If you are more of a “do the minimum” makeup kind of person, just apply concealer under your eyes, at the corners of your mouth, and next to your nose. It will help you camouflage redness or darkness in those areas quick as a flash!

Hopefully these tips help you conceal anything on your skin that you feel self-conscious about! That is what concealer is for after all, to conceal dark spots and pimples.

Concealer comes in many shades and colors. The specific formula we will be discussing today is of the green variety. When I first saw green concealer I could not figure out what it was. Green? On your face? But, little did I know that green concealer is used to correct redness on your face because green and red are opposites on the color wheel. Here is how to use green concealer to your advantage!mufe-green-primer1

  1. A little goes a long way: The last thing you want to do is give yourself a green hue. Only apply the
    concealer to the red spots where it is needed and then blend it well with your skin-tone concealer.
  2. Match it up: The intensity of the green you use depends on your skin tone. You will know it is the right shade when it seamlessly blends to your skin and hides any blemishes under it.
  3. Think it through: Think to yourself if you really need color correction. The main goal is to show as much of your natural skin as possible!

I went to Ulta and picked up some NYX brand green concealer and love it! I just use a little dab on any red spot on my face and blend it in with my skin-tone concealer, just like I said above! Try it out and see what you think.

XOXO,

Chels
