We're back with another "unexpected uses" series, this time from Pauline.
You're going to love using these super-simple (and helpful) concealer hacks every day.
Follow along with Pauline Zilch, certified MUA!
My first trick is that you can actually use your concealer to create a tinted moisturizer. That way you don't need to bring foundation with you if you have limited bag space. This is such a good trick. I use it a lot, especially when I'm traveling. So all you'll need is a simple moisturizer. I like to use the CeraVe facial moisturizing lotion, the ultra lightweight, and then I use subtl stak's Garfield (008W) Concealer and I mix them together. I will show you how I apply it.
And just like that you have some facial coverage without having to lather on too much foundation, which I absolutely love. This feels really lightweight, easy, and I can layer, which is also my favorite thing.
Now, I'm gonna go in with the shade Arlington (005C) and use it under my eyes — which we all know how to do.
You can also use that concealer to clean up your eyeshadow. For example —this is a little bit on the edge here, so I will use a finger that I didn't use before and just kind of go and start to erase any lines that I don't want there. I'm gonna throw on some blush and I'll finish off with my last trick.
My last trick is to use concealer to help shape your brows after you're done grooming them. So I'm gonna do a quick little brow groom. I'm gonna purposefully go outside of the line and show you how you can use that concealer to clean it up super fast. Obviously I have some slip ups here, but I'm gonna take my pinky finger again and you can easily go ahead and kind of create the shape that you want. It's kind of like hacking the eyebrow. And I want just be a little more angled down. So there I go. You can also put a little bit on the underneath side to shape the under part of your eyebrow. And again, clean up any eyeshadow that might have come out. Now, I'm gonna throw on some mascara and this look will be done.
And just like that! You can hack your makeup bag by minimizing your products using just concealer for foundation, a mini tinted moisturizer, an eyelid primer as well as a brow groomer.
Those are my concealer tricks and I hope that you enjoyed and we'll be back with more video soon. Bye everyone.
