Choose the Right Shade: Select a concealer that matches your skin tone for covering blemishes and a shade slightly lighter for under the eyes.

Under Eyes: Using a concealer brush or your ring finger, apply the concealer in a triangular shape under your eyes. Blend well by gently tapping, focusing on the area where darkness is most prominent.

Spot Conceal: Dab a small amount of concealer onto any blemishes, redness, or discoloration. Tap gently to blend without wiping it off.

Blend: Ensure there are no harsh lines or edges where the concealer ends. Use a damp beauty sponge for a seamless blend.

Choose your Powder: Select a setting powder that matches your skin tone or is translucent.

Apply Powder: Using a fluffy brush, lightly dust powder over your entire face. Focus on areas where you applied concealer to set it in place and prevent creasing. For oily skin, pay extra attention to the T-zone (forehead, nose, and chin).

Buff: With a clean, fluffy brush, gently buff the powder into your skin using circular motions. This helps achieve a natural, skin-like finish.

Blush/Bronzer: If desired, apply a light touch of blush or bronzer to add color and dimension to your face.

Mascara and Lips: Finish the look with a coat of mascara and a swipe of your favorite lip product for a polished appearance.

Primer: For longer-lasting wear, consider using a primer before applying concealer.

Hydration: Keep your under-eye area hydrated with an eye cream if you have dry skin. This prevents the concealer from looking cakey.

Tools: For the best results, use the right tools. A damp beauty sponge is excellent for a natural finish, while brushes provide more coverage.

Setting Spray: A light mist of setting spray can help your makeup last longer and remove any powdery finish.

Final Words

This approach focuses on enhancing your natural beauty without the need for full foundation coverage. The key is to blend well and choose products that suit your skin type and tone.
