If you are new to makeup and want to start applying makeup but don’t quite know where to start, this article is for you. The world of makeup can seem overwhelming, especially when you’re starting out. There is always something new in cosmetics. In addition, there are many products that serve different purposes. Here we start right from the base. What is the real difference between primer, foundation and concealer?
What is a primer
We recommend Maybelline New York Master Prime. It is a silky, lightweight, oil-free formula that is translucent and compliments all skin tones.
What is foundation
To avoid that dreaded “doggy” look, apply your foundation with a damp sponge. It absorbs products, which allows you to gradually add the perfect amount of foundation to the skin.
Why you need a concealer
Once you have your primer and foundation in place, your skin can be pretty amazing. However, no one is perfect and we all have days when our skin refuses to cooperate with us. From angry pimples to redness and dark circles to blemishes, the concealer is super handy to instantly address all your skin concerns.
Use brushes or fingertips to apply concealer. If you want it to look natural and discreet, make sure you blend it thoroughly.
No matter what your skin type is, it’s a good idea to have two concealers on hand – one to cover blemishes and one to cover dark circles under the eyes.
