A beauty expert’s guide to concealer…

When it comes to skin imperfections, puffiness and under-eye circles – concealer can be an absolute life-saver. Understanding which concealer to use and how to apply it properly, can make a huge difference. And that’s where we come in… we’ve collated some top tips from experts which are all about using concealer in the right way and in all the right places.

How to conceal an uneven skin tone

If you suffer from an uneven skin tone, concealer can be a really useful tool to help improve your skin’s appearance. This method can also be used for covering up facial scars. For this, you will need a heavier concealer because the thicker texture contains less oil and will last longer. You will also need lifting concealer, a makeup sponge and translucent powder.

Here’s how to do it:

Apply the concealer with a brush and cover the problem area entirely. Dab one coat of the lifting concealer over the area to make the dark spot brighter. Dampen your beauty sponge and dip it into loose powder and then blend the area in evenly. Use a translucent mineral powder to finish and set the area.

How to conceal under-eye circles

When it comes to hiding under-eye circles, the most important thing to remember is to make your eyes look brighter. In addition, a brightening concealer and loose highlighting powder will make a world of difference. Because the skin under your eyes is so delicate, it’s best to use a concealer that’s oil-based and will keep this area moisturised and hydrated throughout the day. Concealers which are pink or peach in tone are the best to help counteract the blue tones of your dark eye circles.

Here’s how to do it:

Dot the brightening concealer in a line under your eye, starting at the inner corner and working to the outer edge of your eye.

Use a makeup sponge which is a little damp, then dip it into your loose highlighting powder. Dab it over the concealer and blend evenly into your skin. Finish up by brushing a small bit of the powder under your eye to make sure it sets correctly and to prevent creasing.

How to conceal blemishes

Green concealers are best for covering up blemishes which are red in colour as they will help to neutralise the appearance, whilst also disguising the inflammation. So, you’ll need a green concealer and a brush to apply it, concealer and loose powder.

Here’s how to do it:

Load a concealer brush with the green concealer and apply it onto the blemish, first start in the middle and make light brush strokes outwards. You want the concealer to fade into your skin, with the middle of the blemish being the most concentrated area.

Ensure your index finger is clean and use it to dab onto the concealer stick and apply to the blemish. Use a patting motion and apply until the skin tone looks even and the area is completely covered up.

Use a blending brush to lightly dust the loose powder onto your skin, and blend all three products together.

How to conceal puffiness

We all have days when our skin just doesn’t look or feel its best and it’s not as soft, smooth or supple as we’d like. Puffiness is most likely to appear on eyelids, around the outer corners of eyes, or on brow bones and while it’s usually your skin’s way of telling you to get more sleep, sometimes that’s not always possible. Luckily, we have a concealer method which will help improve its appearance! First things first, drink up! If your skin is puffy or just generally not looking its best, water will do it the world of good, so aim to drink two glasses before applying your makeup. Then, use a yellow-toned or brightening concealer to highlight these areas and keep your skin looking fresh. For this method you will need a liquid concealer, hydrating moisturiser, and a bit of highlighter.

Here’s how to do it:

Create a mixture using your moisturiser, your liquid concealer, and a bit of highlighter. Dab the mixture onto the puffy areas of your face, using a concealer brush. Clean your concealer brush and then use it to blend the concealer in evenly. Et voila!

Which colour concealer to use?

There are a number of different colour concealers to choose from and picking the right one is key to improving the appearance of your specific skin complaint. We offer a full range of HD makeup range to suit all skin types and colours, so please feel free to call for a complimentary colour match at any of our Pure Perfection salons.

Top tips to look your best, no matter what the weather…

FB_IMG_1456911510572Well, supposedly spring is round the corner but there is still a distinct chill in the air, which can play havoc with our skin and general health. Cold temperatures, an A to Z of storms and the bracing wind can leave you thinking you’re destined to have sullen, dry skin and frizzy hair – but it doesn’t have to be that way! These top beauty tips for all seasons, especially the colder months, will help you stay glowing and gorgeous – no matter what the weather!

Time to get your H20 fix…

The Christmas party season is well behind us, so now is the time to dose up on the good stuff as we head towards the warmer and often dreaded ‘dare to bare’ months.

In winter, it’s likely we will feel less thirsty but it’s still important we get the recommended amount of water each and every day to help keep ourselves – and skin – hydrated, inside and out. In addition to drinking plenty of water, herbal teas, diluted sugar free fruit drinks, why not try clear soups as a tasty way of topping up your water levels and flushing out those dreaded toxins. By the summer months, your skin will be glowing, gorgeous and cellulite will appear less obvious or non existent – believe us, you’ll be glad you topped up your H20 consumption.

Also, why not try juicing? It’s a quick and easy way to load your body with essential nutrients. Our previous blog is full of tasty detox recipes, so why not give them a go?

SPF is always necessary, even when it’s cold outside!

You may think that just because it’s cold outside, that sun protection is not needed. But that is not the case as UV rays are still potent even in the winter months and can still cause sun damage. Try switching to moisturiser and/or foundation which have built-in SPF to adopt a fuss-free way to incorporate sun protection into your daily routine.

Your lips deserve to be luscious all year long!

If you’re feeling self-conscious about a dry, flaky pout then try an exfoliant on lips to get rid of flaky patches and as tempting it may be, fight the urge to constantly lick your lips as it only dries them out more. Try a lip balm which is both moisturising and natural and doesn’t include any drying ingredients such as camphor and menthol, which tend to worsen a cracked, inflamed mouth.

Feed your skin from within…

There’s nothing more beautiful than a natural glow and did you know that certain foods can really help? Try foods such as oily fish like salmon and tuna (high in omega-3 which help plump up skin’s collagen production), spinach and avocadoes (high in vitamin E, which protects skin from UV rays and cell damage) and vitamin C-rich foods like tomatoes and citrus fruits (they’ll help keep wrinkles at bay). Sugar won’t be doing any favours for sallow winter skin, so get snacking on seeds and nuts for a zinc boost, essential for preventing rashes and unwanted skin irritations.

To keep your skin in tip top condition all year round, why not try the our NEW hydra facial which can give you amazing results transforming tired, sallow and dull skin, into skin that looks beautiful, soft and supple. THIS is the hyaluronic acid approach to rehydrate your skin.
