Is concealer alone enough? If you’re looking for a lighter-weight alternative to foundation but don’t want to rely on a tinted moisturizer or CC cream, we recommend using concealer alone. It’s true, with the right long-wearing or hydrating concealer formula, you’ll be able to cover imperfections, even out and keep your complexion looking fresh.
How many shades of concealer do I need? It’s all about creating shadows and light to manipulate your natural facial structure. Concealer makes a great contour. You will need a concealer two shades lighter and one three shades darker than your foundation color. The lighter shade is used to highlight your face.
Do you need both concealer and foundation? To get a flawless makeup look, both concealer and foundation are necessary. For a natural look, you can choose between the two depending on your skin needs.
Should you wear concealer over or under foundation? Do I apply concealer before or after foundation? Always apply your foundation first, unless you are using a powder foundation. Applying foundation first creates an even base to reduce overall redness, discoloration and minor blemishes.
