One of my goals has been to find a lightweight natural concealer that actually helps, not just covers, undereye dark circles, allergy-induced redness, and occasional breakouts without looking dry or cakey…and without skin-irritating synthetics, chemicals, wax, preservatives, parabens, phthalates, and talc.
Tips on Using and Choosing Concealor…

To apply concealor…Place three tiny dots of concealor under the eyes from the inner corners to the centers, using a synthetic concealer brush. Blend in with your fingertips. Apply a lightweight, loose translucent powder to set the concealor and prevent any shimmer and shine…not a pressed powder which can draw attention to fine lines by settling into creases.

A synthetic brush is best for applying concealor. Applying concealer with your fingers results in creasing and caking. Applying concealer with a natural bristles results in applying too much color.

Never apply concealer onto…

  • Crow’s feet…this draws attention to them
  • Eyelids…this makes them look heavy
  • Undereye bags…this highlights them…instead press a touch of foundation on the bags, and then dot a highlighting cream (peachy for fair skin, golden on darker skin) at the inner corners of the eyes and just underneath the bags. 

Choosing Concealor…

  • Buy one concealer to match your skin in the summer and another for the winter…then blend the two for your in-between shades the rest of the year.
  • Choose a concealer that matches your skin exactly to cover redness.
  • Choosing the best under-eye concealer depends on what you’re trying to cover up. Yellow-tone concealers neutralize bluish undereye circles. Peach-tone concealers are best for brown or yellowish circles. 
  • Creamy, hydrating concealers work best for the delicate and dry skin around the eyes.
  • If you’re starting to get fine lines around your eyes, pat moisturizer all around the eyes, using your ring finger and allow it to sink in for a few minutes before applying concealer. 
  • Pigment-rich, opaque concealers neutralize the redness and zits of acne flare-ups in just one or two thin layers. Dot the concealer directly on the pimple, and then sweep the brush around the base of any pimple, using tiny strokes in order to precisely blend the concealor without using your fingers.
