It’s very easy to spill into ‘caked’ territory when you’re trying to recreate concealing routines off YouTube, so here’s how you should be using your concealer.
If there’s one thing I always have on hand, it’s concealer. If you use it properly, it can replace everything from your foundation to your yellow setting powder (and even your bronzer). Currently, Arbonne’s Real Conceal Liquid Concealer is part of my line-up because it’s quite the gem. The formula is lightweight, but buildable, if you’re looking for full-coverage. With 7 shade to choose from, you’re bound to find the right one for you.
How to use your concealer as foundation
If you prefer little foundation, consider using your concealer next time. Arbonne’s Real Conceal Liquid Concealer is perfect for this because it’s buildable. Apply concealer in the usual spots, like your undereye area, but also around the corners of your lips and nostrils to cancel out discoloration. If you’re dealing with small spots or hyperpigmentation, spot-concealing is way easier than applying a full layer of foundation.It’s important to pick a shade close to your skin, for this part. We’ll talk brightening in the next section.
How to use your concealer as your brightening powder
Powder can be tricky. If you don’t use the right one or if you use too much, it can quickly turn into a cakey mess. Instead of baking, pick up a yellow-toned concealer and tab a few spots over your undereye area (after you’ve concealed). Some of Arbonne’s Real Conceal Liquid Concealers are yellow enough to brighten up your complexion!
How to use your concealer as your contour
Contour sticks are expensive and a perfect hack is buying your concealer in a darker shade. I’m a fan of cream contours, so Arbonne’s Real Conceal Liquid Concealer in Tan is my perfect contour shade. Apply it in the hollows of your cheeks, along the bridge of your nose, or underneath your chin—anywhere you want to create shadow. Blend it until seamless and enjoy your new bronze-y glow!
