SCULPTS Top Concealer Tricks for Perfection

Monday, 30 March 2015  |  Admin

Are you perfecting your make up but your base and your concealer in particular looks not quite as perfect as those pics on instagram? There are many cause for this but I usually put it down to a combination of a bad base or bad concealer. Sometimes it may be both, but usually it comes from concealer overload or not quite enough concealer to cover up blemishes. Never fear because here at SCULPT we have the perfect concealer tips for you! Check it out below...

  1. If you use foundation, apply it first, and then apply your concealer second. If you apply your foundation first, you'll find that you don't need to use as much concealer. If you apply concealer first, however, you'll remove most of it while applying your foundation and end up having to put more on and waste both product and your precious time.

Sculpt, Creme Concealer €13.50 

  1. The most flattering way to apply concealer is to draw a triangle with the base under your eye and the point toward your cheek.
    This shape not only conceals dark circles, but it also instantly creates the illusion that your face is lifted as the eye is drawn toward that area. Think of it as holding a flashlight against your cheek, shining the light right underneath your eye, and drawing the focus upward.

 

 

3. To prevent your eye shadow from falling off your lid and settling in the creases, prime your eyelids first with a dab of concealer.
If you can't justify spending extra on eye shadow primer, a dab of concealer works just as well as a primer. I only recommend a primer of its reasonably priced!

4. When concealing a pimple, first use a green concealer, then cover the area with a concealer that matches your skin tone perfectly. 
Cancel out a pimple's redness by applying green concealer with a clean brush to only the pimple (not the skin around it) to avoid spreading the bacteria. Then, use a cotton swab to dab on a high-coverage liquid concealer that matches your skin tone to camouflage the pimple. Blend it into the surrounding skin and finish with setting powder.

5. For the ultimate nude lip use a concealer to blank out lip colour. Then apply a nude gloss all over the lip to disguise the concealer. Use a pinky - nude if you prefer more colour in your lips.

 

6. Dab an yellow to peach concealer over dark, purple under-eye circles with your ring finger.
Your ring finger, which is your weakest, will apply just the right amount of pressure to blend in the concealer without pulling at your delicate eye skin, and the orange or peach tones will cancel out the blue shadows that your under-eye circles give off. Top the orange or peach formula with a cover-up that matches your skin.

7. Know what issues different colors of concealer fix.
Peach shades cancel out blue circles or bruising, green hide red blemishes, and yellow-toned concealers correct almost all uneven skin tones.

8. Make your lipstick pop and prevent the color from bleeding by lining the outside of your lips with a fine-tip brush and a bit of concealer. You'll be amazed at how sharp your lips will look afterward and how much more obvious they appear in pics. Hello Instagram! 

 

9. Sharpen your cat-eye and cover any eyeliner mistakes with an angled brush dipped in concealer.
This is much easier than removing it altogether and starting over completely, and it can be down with any clean angled liner brush.

10. Who needs lip fillers?! Create the illusion of plumper lips by filling in the middle section with a light concealer. Blending it out with the warmth from your fingertip, and finishing with a pinky or nude gloss of you want an understated but glam natural look or go for a deeper colour outside it for a more dramatic look! The darker colour is perfect for night time glamorous look!

Last week, I interviewed Suzie O’Neill, creator of AYU Make Up who illustrated to us that home grown, Irish beauty tools could be manufactured to equally as high a standard as their foreign counterparts so, what about make up itself?

Beauty on Board, Holiday essentials

t is, dare I say it officially summer season, which means one thing for us Irish folk; heading off to the airport to hop on a plane to catch some guaranteed actual sunshine, that we just are not likely to get here in Ireland. I personally love getting away but I hate being without all my beauty treats, which for me is make up, body lotions, perfumes, hair products, body mists, tan, mitts an the list goes on and on.

Dermalogica Skin Kits - The Lowdown

Here at Sculpt Cosmetics we love skin care, not just skincare but really good skin care. We love a lot of ranges here at Sculpt Studio but I especially have a little soft spot for Dermalogica. I have used this range since I started out in make up 12 years ago, so I know it pretty well and I know what works for me, but I have lots of clients who have not used it and are a bit scared by the price tag of indulging on yet another skincare range that promises to fix their skin. Dermalogica have the perfect answer - a Skin Kit that contains minis of the best of Dermalogica according to your skin types, for a much more affordable price tag of €33.20!
