When can this be useful? Let's figure it out together

You don't have to go looking for concealer to cover dark circles under your eyes.

You can try to get by with foundation alone.

What is the difference between concealer and foundation?

The main differences between these two products are the degree of pigmentation and texture.

The concealer contains more tonal pigments, and the texture is much denser.

This allows him to mask well even such problem areas as dark circles under the eyes.

That is, the concealer was created for targeted troubleshooting.

Foundation, on the contrary, is needed to correct skin tone in general: it is distributed over the entire face, expecting that it will “merge” with the skin and will not be noticeable from the outside. You can find a detailed dossier on the topic in this article.

Can I use foundation as a concealer?

The editors of FashionVIPdergisi.com asked this question to the leading makeup artists of our country. Below are their answers and life hacks.

To use foundation as a corrector, it must be dense, resistant and elastic, not liquid.

Choose a shade closer to peach to mask dark circles under the eyes, and redness is better hidden by a shade with a slight olive undertone. For example, I apply a thin layer of Maybelline's Superstay 24 Foundation with a brush all over my face, and then add it to problem areas with a fingertip or a smaller brush.

If you only have foundation on hand, it is enough to create the perfect face tone.

Apply all over your face and around your eyes. On top, I advise you to add a little moisturizer or liquid highlighter. It will brighten the area around the eyes a little and give the image freshness due to reflective particles.

Do you only have foundation? Great! Feel free to use it in the area around the eyes. But remember that the product should be applied to this area with patting movements of the fingers, otherwise there is a chance that it will clog into the creases of the eyelid.

How to make concealer from foundation?

We already found out that foundation can be used instead of concealer. Now let's figure out exactly how to do it.

  1. Moisturize the skin with cream and spread the foundation over the entire face, blending it from the center to the periphery. On the under-eye area, also apply cream first to moisturize and smooth the skin, then a light layer of tone.

  2. Take a heavy foundation a shade lighter than your skin tone and apply it evenly under your eyes.It is better to shade the product with fingertips: this way it warms up and becomes more elastic. The movements should be driving in, not stretching, so as not to damage the skin and not earn premature wrinkles.
