"What is concealer?"
"Should I use foundation or concealer first?"

I will answer that as well as go over the different types of concealer products out there, plus tips on choosing concealer for your skin tone!
Can't wait to share!
Ahh, what a great invention!
This handy little product can transform even the baggiest, most tired looking eyes into a clear, even looking appearance. Seemingly wiping away red bumps, pimples, and those other unsightly blemishes.
Go one to two shades lighter than your actual tone.
Your foundation should be your exact skin tone color packaged in a bottle but your concealer should be a shade or two lighter. The only exception to this rule is when you're using concealer to cover up pimples because you apply concealer after (AFTER I said, not before!!!) you've applied your foundation and you don't want that spot to stand out if at all possible.

Yay! You're learning so much already! Feeling a little more confident yet???

There are many different types of concealers out there! Some woman like to use theirs to lighten the areas under their eyes - that's how I like to use mine! Others cover up pimples, tattoos, spider veins, or acne scars. There really is no wrong way to use this magical stuff!

Not too scary - right?
I definitely recommend that you hit up your local Mac or Sephora store so you can try out several different choices before you have to purchase anything!
If that's a little out of your comfort zone, pick out a few different choices from Target, keep the receipt and return all the ones that didn't work for you!Don't forget to "like" if you enjoyed!
