30/03/2015 17:31

Continuing the series, prerequisites for perfect makeup, today I will talk about the corrective. Click on the link:  SERIES OF PREREQUISITE FOR MAKE UP PERFECT 

The concealer and foundation are the essential items of makeup, it is they who prepare the skin. A perfect makeup depends on the skin well prepared.

The concealer is a trump card of any woman, also of men, because, currently, the makeup is not part only of the feminine universe. It is used to prepare the skin, hiding pimples, blemishes and dark circles.

 

TYPES OF CONCEALER

 

Today in the market there are two types of concealer, traditional and colorful.

 

TRADITIONAL CONCEALER

They are used to disguise dark circles, acne, small spots or small lines. In such cases should be applied before foundation

They can also be used as illuminator, this case must be applied on top of the base.

Traditional concealers are in pink and yellow tones.

To find out if your concealer should have a pink hue or a yellow tone is necessary to know the tone and undertone of your skin (TONE AND SKIN UNDERTONE

 This type concealer, which is suitable for small imperfections must be the same undertone of the skin, and one or two lighter shades. 

 

CONSISTENCY OF TRADITIONAL CONCEALER

Today in the market there are various types of concealers: cream, liquid, mousse, stick and powder.

1 - CREAM

Has a thicker consistency, coverage is medium to high, is not suitable to build many layers as you could be charged with or can will crease aspect. However, it is possible to build two layers, without getting a heavy appearance. It is more suitable for younger skins, because for those who already have small lines or more mature skin it can build up in the lines. 

    
     
 

2 - LIQUID    

Has a consistency slightly dense, coverage is slightly high, and you can build layers. It accumulates and not craquela. It is suitable for all skin types. It is found in the form of tube, jar, tube or pump tubing with wand and pen.

Concealers in pen are best suited to be used as illuminators because they have substances in their formulations that provide illumination, reflecting light

    
    

3 - SOLID

STICK - has a drier texture, has a coverage that ranges from mild to medium. It is suitable for normal and oily skin.

    
 

- MOUSSE - has a very light consistency provides low to medium coverage and allows build layers. Very moisturizes the skin, so it is more suitable for dry or normal skin.

     

- POWDER - has a silky texture. Coverage is low. Best suited for use over the correction fluid, especially for people with oily skin.

    
 

ACCESSORIES 

The concealer can be applied with a brush, silicone sponge, sponge brush and with his finger. The most suitable brush is flattened and small bristles. Particularly I prefer the finger.

        

                       

 For concealers in stick form is more appropriate to use only the finger.

 

WHERE AND HOW TO APPLY THE TRADITIONAL CONCEALER

- DARK CIRCLES.

The area outlined for the concealer is the region just below the eyes. With one of the chosen instruments, apply the concealer on dark circles spreading across an area, giving light and repeated taps to standardize the product. Also apply the inner and outer corners of the eyes

- LIGHTING    

Apply the concealer, liquid in this case and preferably illuminating pen, above the base giving small taps, in the defined area. Using concealer pen, the lower line around the eyes (area of dark circles), apply another traditional concealer underneath and on top, apply the concealer pen, because in this way will have better coverage.

The main area to be illuminated is represented below in the form of triangle, just below the eyes. The nose, chin and forehead are optional.

            

    However, if you have a very full cheeks, a nose and a very thin chin, and forehead pretuberante avoid light these areas to prevent highlight these characteristics.
