Whip out your concealer. Here are 5+ concealer tips you must know

Concealer is the makeup industry’s gift to women. Its job is right in its name: to conceal. Chances are you’ve been using concealer the same way your entire life: to hide your flaws. But (and this is a big one) it can actually be accentuating things you’d rather keep hidden.
If there’s one item in your makeup bag that is the most misunderstood, concealer’s the one. It can do a whole lot more than you think, so read on for five concealer tips that will make imperfections a thing of the past.
Apply concealer in a triangle shape
Instead of using a half moon shape underneath the eyes, apply concealer in a triangle shape. This elongates the coverage area and creates a brighter under eye.

If you find yourself with concealer creases under the eyes, make sure to set the concealer with translucent powder. To avoid picking up too much product, make sure to dust the brush before you apply the powder underneath your eyes.

For example, many of us have dark circles under our eyes. These typically have bluish or purple undertones. A bright, warm peach concealer will balance and hide these dark tones. The same principle applies as we use a cool, calming green to offset reds and pinks, and a light purple to brighten and highlight dull areas. Get the full tutorial on this here.
Use concealer for longer lasting lipstick

To make lipstick last longer, you need to apply some sort of product to prime the lip surface. The primer acts as a barrier between your lip and the lipstick. This gives color more staying power plus a smooth underlying surface. If you've never tried using concealer under lipstick, get the full tutorial here.
