Up till I began writing about magnificence a number of years in the past, I at all times thought that concealers have been one-size-fits-all—that they labored for something you are attempting to cowl up, whether or not it is to cover blemishes, even pores and skin texture, or cope with discoloration. And whereas many are fairly versatile, there are some which might be finest used for brightening darkish circles and others that work higher on zits and so forth.
So if you would like a concealer that actually does all of it, make-up artists advised me to go for a cream concealer. “A cream concealer is normally denser in consistency and provides a fuller protection than, say, a liquid concealer,” says superstar make-up artist Emma White Turle. Make-up artist Gita Bass agrees, including that since they have a tendency to have extra pigment and a thicker texture, they’re nice for protecting scars, darkish spots, and blemishes, however they may also be sheered out and used underneath the eyes or to spotlight cheekbones or jawbones.
And so they work on nearly each pores and skin tone. In truth, Turle recommends cream concealers for dry pores and skin varieties. However she provides that you probably have oily pores and skin, you may need to verify the ingredient listing, as some are made with shea butter or avocado oil and won’t be very best to your pores and skin.
