The One Thing You Should NEVER Do When Applying Concealer

August 31, 2016 by Caroline Pirozzolo
shefinds | |

Concealer is a multi-talented product and a total lifesaver when it comes to a number of beauty woes. Breaking out before a big date? Concealer. Under-eye bags from your late night last night? Concealer. Redness around your nose and mouth? Concealer. It’s basically a miracle product, right?

While it can seem foolproof, there is one major mistake that you’re probably making when it comes to applying concealer. Especially when you’re applying concealer to under-eye circles or acne, you should always “tap” it in – never rub or stroke. Repeated rubbing motions can stretch your skin and actually make your eye bags look worse over time. If you’re trying to cover up a blemish, you run the risk of accidentally popping it while applying your concealer, causing it to scar.

Not only will applying your concealer with a tapping motion avoid any of those dreaded scenarios, but it will result in a much nicer, more “airbushed,” finish instead of potentially looking streaky or spotty. It’ll also help to invest in a good brush or sponge for your concealer instead of just applying it with your finger. (Just make sure to regularly clean said brush or sponge!)

Concealer is a miracle-worker, but knowing the best way to apply it is half the battle. It may take a couple extra seconds, but tapping instead of rubbing concealer will seriously save your skin in the long run.
