Concealer: Before or After Foundation?
Do you apply concealer before or after foundation? This is a question that has baffled makeup lovers for many years. Concealer, like the name suggests, should be used to conceal blemishes, such as scars, dark spots, large pores, dark circles, acne and hyperpigmentation. Some of these blemishes may be more noticeable than others, and cannot be covered with your foundation. When this occurs, your trusty concealer should enter the ring.
When applied before foundation, it can be difficult to determine what blemishes need extra coverage. As a result, this can often lead to over application, which will look cakey and unnatural. In addition, when you apply concealer before foundation, the product is moved around the skin when you buff on your foundation. For these reasons, applying concealer after your foundation is the best way to apply the product.
After priming the skin with Amber Ward Mineral Veil and applying your matching shade of Amber Ward Mineral Foundation, closely look at your skin to determine where you need extra coverage. The most common places to apply concealer is under the eyes (to conceal dark circles), around the nose (where redness often occurs), and on any other blemishes.
Sprinkle a small amount of Amber Ward Natural Mineral Concealer into the product’s lid. Swirl a small fluffy brush into the lid and tap off any excess product. Lightly tap and buff the product on to the desired areas, this will ensure that you get a high level of coverage.
