Unfortunately, the majority of the fair sex always have flaws on her face, but at the same time, every woman wants to be attractive. To hide certain flaws on the skin of the face, dark circles under the eyes, redness, age spots, acne and much more, women use special tools called concealers or concealers. Some of the best are funds from the professional MAC brand. About there, how to use them correctly and how to choose a suitable option, we will tell further.
What it is?
Concealer is, in fact, the same corrector for the face. It is used for precise correction of certain deficiencies. Most often, the concealer has a dense texture, so you can mask everything you want and even moles.
Just like the foundation, concealers have a fairly large palette of shades, from the lightest to darkest shades.
This tool is considered more effective than any other means, since most often foundation creams can shine through pigment spots or redness, but a previously applied concealer can easily get the perfect complexion.
It is very important not to confuse that concealers and concealers are not intended to be fully used as a face cream, since they need to correct certain specific zones, and use the foundation after to complete the creation of a flawless and even complexion.
Many people wonder what is the difference between concealer and corrector. Both of these tools are designed to correct imperfections on the face, but nevertheless it is believed that correctors have a more lightweight texture and an extensive selection of shades that are aimed at correcting a variety of skin problems. But in reality there is no significant difference, the description of these products is almost the same.
