Quick Makeup Tip: Is it Concealer or Foundation First?

By | Featured, News | No Comments

Whether you’re new to the world of makeup or a professional makeup artist, you’re sure to have a beauty routine. From what products you use to what you apply first, it’s all up to you – or whoever you learned from. After watching many tutorials and getting pro beauty advice, there seems to be some conflict on one thing. What do you apply first, concealer or foundation? Let us settle the score for you with this quick makeup tip!

Expert Sets Record Straight with Quick Makeup Tip

Some of you may think that it doesn’t matter what product you put on first. Both concealer and foundation do provide some level of coverage. But makeup artist Fiona Stiles wants you to think again!

She tells InStyle magazine that she always applies foundation first. Her reasoning is simple. The coverage you get is dependent on the formula of your foundation. A trip to the makeup counter will show you that there are plenty of products out there. Foundation can be sheer or heavy. Some of you may even choose to use BB cream or CC cream in lieu of heavy foundation.

Why Foundation First?

Stiles says that she applies foundation first to see whether or not she still needs to use concealer. If it’s a heavy foundation, you may already have all the coverage you need. If you use a sheer product, you’ll need concealer for extra coverage of dark spots.

She also mentions that it doesn’t make sense to apply concealer first before foundation. This is especially the case f your purpose was to cover spots or scars. Doing so will just rub away the concealer you set.

Easy Makeup Routine from Fiona

So here’s the quick makeup tip from Stiles. Buff on a layer of foundation and check for any discoloration. Whether it’s under your eyes or an acne scar, dab on some concealer for more coverage. Then blend the edges using a brush to get rid of any product lines.

And there you have it! Another piece of makeup advice to help you look absolutely fabulous.
