How To Make Your Concealer Last All Day #YouCanDoIt

From covering blemishes to camouflaging under-eye circles, concealer is a total must-have in your makeup arsenal. And if there’s one product that absolutely needs to stay put all day long, it’s concealer. After all, it’s hiding all your imperfections!

If you’ve been struggling with concealer that smudges, budges or simply fades throughout the day, we’re here to help. Believe it or not, making your concealer last is all about the application. Here’s what you need to do:

Step 1: Make sure you prime your face first. Priming your face ensures that your products go on smooth and last longer.

Step 2: Apply the concealer on the desired areas. I recommend using a damp beauty sponge to blend out the concealer. To dampen, you can use water or what I like to do, use some of the primer you started with. Also, make sure you are blending the product outwards (i.e. toward your temples if you’re concealing your under-eye circles).

Step 3: Set your concealer. This is what’s going to make sure it doesn’t crease and stays put all day. Tap your beauty sponge into translucent powder, then tap onto the areas you applied concealer. Let this sit while you apply the rest of your makeup, then brush away with a large powder brush.

And you’re done! By following these simple steps, your concealer will stay in place all day long.
