Many people wonder why their concealer must be a shade lighter than their foundation. For the majority of women, a concealer is a vital product of a complete makeup regime. This is because a concealer can be used as a multipurpose product to cover up dark spots, even out skin tone, cover up dark circles, hide eye bags and mask any tattoos or scars. Fortunately, most brands carry multiple concealer shades to suit any skin tone.
A mistake that many people make is to find a concealer that matches their skin shade perfectly. This is logically reasonable because nobody likes to use concealers that look much brighter or darker than their skin tone. However, this isn't necessarily the best approach to selecting your concealer.
