Categories : Makeup

A concealer plays a vital role when it comes to makeup. We know of some instances when people do not want a full-on makeup look, but just a natural finish. They just dab on some concealer under their eyes, a few spots on the face and blend them out. As some of us use concealers on an everyday basis, and repurchasing a concealer of a high-end brand frequently, could put a hole in our pockets. However, there are also concealers that are the goldilocks of concealers, sitting perfectly in the middle. Beauty Insider has put together your the best drugstore concealers available right here in Singapore!

How To Choose Your Concealer Shade

Similar to choosing a foundation shade, many are mistaken when it comes to choosing a concealer shade. They think that they should just take the lightest shade to make the area stand out with brightness but that’s not really the case.

A concealer is used to conceal mild blemishes such as discolouration, dark circles and red patches. If you use a concealer multiple shades brighter or darker than your actual skin, well, it would just look funny in contrast to your foundation.

With that, it’s best you choose a concealer only one shade brighter than your skin/foundation tone. This will give you a soft brightening effect and will blend well against your skin.

Choosing Which Form Of Concealer Works Best For You

Concealers come in many forms. Normally, you would find them in a liquid form in a tube and applicator format. These are the easiest to use and most favoured over. It works well for all areas and for any skin type but may not be the most pigmented to hide intense blemishes.

There is also a cream form. These are the most pigmented which makes them great at concealing stubborn angry spots and intense panda eyes. Many makeup artists’ prefer cream as they are more versatile where you can either go light or super heavy.

Lastly, powder concealers are a little tricky as they require a liquid/cream based to attach to. Therefore, if you’re planning to apply it on bare skin, you won’t really be able to hide anything. The best way to use powder concealers is ontop a liquid concealer that is mild in pigment and just watch the powder stick nicely- trust us, it won’t budge!
