How to Pick Best Foundation & Concealer 
  • The type of concealer and foundation you pick will depend mainly upon your skin type and skin tone.
  • Those with oily skin should always go for foundations and concealers that are water based or oil-free.
  • On the other hand, people with dry skin should consider oil-based products as their best bet.
  • Now comes, the tone of the concealer and foundation. Usually, products with yellow tinge work best on all skin tones. However, if you are pretty fair, go for pink shades.
  • To make sure that you select the foundation and concealer best suited to your skin tone, do a little testing. Dab a few drops of each color on your jaw line and spread it properly. Select the one that matches your skin tone the best.
  • Make sure to check the color of the foundation & concealer in sunlight, since tube lights and bulbs can be misleading.
  • Always choose the foundation & concealer that perfectly matches your skin tone and is as good as invisible.  
How to Apply Foundation & Concealer 
  • First things first. You should always apply the concealer before the foundation; otherwise your skin will end up looking patchy.
  • Cleanse and moisturize your face properly. Now, wipe out any excess moisturizer with a tissue.
  • Take the concealer and dab it over the problematic areas like under-eye circles, blemishes, scars, etc. But, don’t rub. Spread it gently.
  • Using fingers or sponge, apply dots of foundation on your cheeks, chin, forehead and tip of the nose.
  • Blend the dots together with fingers or sponge, moving from inside to outwards. Make sure that there is a smooth look on you face.
  • Now, the last thing to do is to apply light powder to give a matt finish and make sure that the foundation stays put.
