If you're looking for a way to reduce dark circles, age spots, scars, or other marks, you've come to the right place. A concealer works by helping blend any imperfections in with the rest of your skin tone. It's the best quick tricks to covering up unwanted blemishes or spots.
Okay, I'm Listening.
Concealer covers up blemishes. Most of the time, you don't apply concealer to the entire face, which is why sometimes it's a bit pricier than other cosmetics.
Keep in mind that the right concealer for you depends on your skin type and what you're looking to cover up.
Application for most concealers is very similar - always start with a clean face (face scrub anyone?) and remember that a little can go a long way.
For the man looking to keep things simple, we've got you covered. We've compiled a list of our favorite concealers that apply lightly and are virtually undetectable.
