Quick Tip for Concealers!

I always had a problem of creasing with my concealer. It gives an amazing coverage but due to the amount I used, it always got into the fine lines and wrinkles and thus creased! But I still continued with it as I could find no better concealer that what I have.

When I recently went to the MAC counter looking for a concealer for my aunt, the MA first put a layer of the studio fix concealer with the MAC 217 brush and blended it and then what caught my eye was that she got an eye cream, put some on her brush, dipped that into the concealer and then applied it over that first layer.

This literally changed it into a liquid concealer but offering the same coverage as before (dare I say even more!) The result was total coverage :D

Also using the 217 for a concealer is a fab idea indeed as it provides the lightest coverage with heavy duty cream concealers and prevents the concealer from filling in the fine lines and wrinkles.

Also dipping the brush in the cream prevents the concealer from appearing cakey or dry. It infact leaves a luminous, reflective result which will minimise the appearance of fine lines or any darkness.

To try this out, what you will need is

- a MAC 217 brush (this is indeed the best for concealer, applying/blending e/s and £12 is dirt cheap if it will last you a life time!!! go get one!!)

- a full coverage cream/stick concealer (any decent one will do as long as it provides the right coverage for you. I would suggest investing in a MAC studio fix (£11 approx) or a Derma color concealer (£18 approx) )

- an eye cream (any will do really!)
