Applying Concealor

How can I get my concealor to "stick" better?

Applying a tiny bit of powder (loose or pressed) before and after applying your concealer helps it to set better, especially if you have oily skin. I do this under my eyes, where I have dark circles, and any where else where I may have a blemish. After doing this, apply foundation as you normally would. Don't forget to always use your moisturizer before applying any makeup to the face.

What is the best way to camouflage a blemish without looking like I've piled on a ton of makeup?

We put this one to renowned makeup artist Vincent Longo, who told us the key to a good cover-up is choosing the right color.

First, choose a concealer base that matches your skin tone. Avoid using a color lighter than your skin tone because it will only draw more attention to the problem area. Once you have the right color, apply the concealer by dabbing just a little of the product onto the center of the pimple, then blending it outwards towards the edges and into the skin.

I always have dark circles under my eyes. Is there anything that I can do?

They say the eyes are the windows of the soul. The undereye area reflects both your lifestyle and heredity.

If your circles come and go, they are likely a product of your environment and lifestyle - too much alcohol or too little sleep are common culprits.

The good news is that often cremes and gels infused with vitamins and botanicals can help to soothe and diminish temporary darkness. Hereditary circles, on the other hand, are more challenging.

Many new products claim to banish hereditary darkness, but consumer feedback is varied and the medical community is not promoting a particular ingredient yet.

According to Dr. Kathy Fields, vitamin K is currently being studied and may prove to be of benefit.

Until then, ladies, concealer may be your best friend (aside from mascara, that is)!
