We sat down for a Concealer Class with Sabrina to learn her tips & tricks on concealing, highlighting and contouring like a pro. Let's get schooled...
Q: When applying makeup, when and how do you rely on concealer?
A: My undereye circles are probably my biggest concern when it comes to concealing. I usually dab a bit on my nose, under my eyes, on my chin and under my nose even when I’m headed out the door quickly.
Q: Concealer is a gift! But using it properly can be tricky. Please describe some concealer “oops” you’ve seen or experienced.
A: Color matching is big! It gets tricky because concealer should technically be one shade lighter than your foundation. I’ve certainly worn the wrong shade and saw ghostly results once I took a picture – yikes!
Q: How does Power Play Concealer stand out vs. other concealers you’ve used?
A: I love the color options. I usually get 3 options with medium skin: light medium, medium medium, and dark medium – I was so impressed by the options available to me within my shade range.
Q: Share a tip (or two!) about using concealer—and using it properly.
A: I like to make a triangle under each of my eyes. I think that helps distribute the product evenly and brighten that area without caking on the concealer.
Since we’re talking class — and it is back to school season...
