Stop Making These Concealer Mistakes NOW!

Hello #BGStars, hope you all are doing great! We all know how crucial the concealer is in every girl’s makeup kit, right from hiding those raccoon eyes from late-night Netflix binge-watching to covering up your acne scars from monthly breakouts, blemishes and so much more. But sometimes, we can go completely wrong while using it, either we are using the wrong shade or have smeared so much to hide imperfections. Guilty of making these mistakes? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!

Below we’ve listed some major concealer mistakes you might be making and the easy way to eliminate them—nothing complicated we promise. Do check it out!

Mistake 1: You’re not using the right shade.

Tip: Find your right shade by clicking the shade finder tab on www.bollyglow.com

Mistake 2: You’re skipping primer!

Tip: Primer helps ‘set the stage’ for long-lasting makeup. Use Bollyglow’s nourishing and sun protecting Bolly Prime Time CC Primer as your base for long-lasting, flawless makeup application no matter where the day takes you.

Mistake 3: You’re only using one shade.

Tip: Opt for a lighter shade concealer for your under eyes & match your concealer to your foundation for blemishes, dark spots, or age spots on your face. Did you know, different parts of your face have different needs, hence makes sense to have two shades in your makeup kit. Bollyglow has a variety of concealer & foundation shades perfect for the indian skin tone. Check out Bollyglow’s Selfie-Ready Conceal + Correct Duo & Filmi Foundation and choose your match now!

Mistake 4: You’re using too much concealer.

Tip: To avoid a cakey face, apply only as required! Less is more, and trust us you only need less concealer than you think.

Mistake 5:  You’re skipping the correcting step!

Tip: Colour correct problem areas on your face-dark circles, redness, acne scars, discolouration with Bollyglow’s 2-in-1 corrector (masala) on one side & your perfect shade concealer on the other.

Mistake 6: You’re not blending properly.

Tip: Blending is key, either with your fingers, a makeup blender or a proper brush. It’s best to use a small, flat concealer brush to get the best blend possible. Time to invest in a good set of makeup brushes #BGStars.

Mistake 7: You’re not setting with powder.

Tip: Setting powder ‘seals the deal’ and locks your look in place.

Get your conceal & correct game on point by avoiding a few mistakes and you are good to go beauties. Shop primer and your perfect shade concealer & foundation on www.bollyglow.com, and make the most of the combo offers—Buy concealer & foundation @1790 and primer & foundation @1990.

  • Pink masks signs of fatigue- Use it on areas that have dark spots, age spots and dullness; this one is amazing for pale skin.
  • Yellow hides blue or purple-Use it on below your eyes to cover purple/blue eye circles and to calm mild redness. You can count on yellow!
  • Orange hides eye bags, bruises-Use it mainly below the eyes to get rid of dark circles, on dark spots and bruised skin; it is great for medium to deep skin tones.

Your Concealer Can Do Way More Than Just This!

What’s a concealer used for? To conceal those pesky dark circles and pimples, ofcourse! Well not really #BGStars, a concealer can apparently do a lot more than just this. You’ll be amazed! And the best part? Having more than one concealer is not a waste at all after all. Put them to use in your daily beauty routine, we show you how.

We’ve enlisted a few concealer tips, tricks and hacks that can totally help you enhance your looks in a jiffy. Thank us later 🙂

Prime your eyelids with concealer

Dab a tiny bit of Bollyglow’s Selfie-Ready Correct + Conceal Duo which is a long-lasting concealer on your eyelid to sweat-proof and oil-proof your eye makeup

Hide eyeliner mistakes with concealer

Dip Bollyglow’s 3-in-1 eye makeup brush, the angled brush into concealer and clean up any jagged lines from doing the winged liner. A lot better and easier than removing it altogether & starting again! No way!

Line your brows with concealer

Last minute party plans and your brows need a quick fix? Define your well-defined arch by lining above and below your brows with a slim concealer stick in your hand that’s one shade lighter than your skin tone. Mask out unwanted hair strands and highlight that arch!

Contour with two shades of concealer

Contour like a pro with two concealers, one should be two shades darker than your skin tone, and the other should be two shades lighter. Make sure to use the lighter shade around the areas of your face like your cheekbones and T-zone and the darker shade in softer areas like your forehead and jawline. Blend it well with a buffing brush for a smooth, natural finish.

Plump your lips with concealer

Start by filling in the middle section of your lips with a light concealer and blend it with your fingertips. Finish off with a clear gel lipgloss like Bollyglow’s Mini Lip Kit in Raw Footage.

Line your collarbone with concealer                     

Shrug your shoulders & draw a thin layer of light-coloured concealer on your collarbone, then trace it with a concealer that’s two shades darker than your skin tone.

Fast Fixes For Dark Circles & Under-Eye Puff!

Hey #BGstars, have you ever wondered what causes those dark circles and under-eye puff? Well, it could be genetics, other lifestyle reasons which include, aging, allergies, crying, eye strain, fluid retention, hormonal changes, lack of sleep, sleep position, medications, smoking, skin irritation, sun exposure, pigmentation variation and let’s not forget the all-night Netflix binging that can produce that raccoon-eye or bags under your peepers.

You can just embrace the bags and your dark side or you can simply follow a few tips and tricks to brighten up your skin and reduce puffiness.

We have your back ladies with fast-acting remedies. Don’t worry, these are simple and cost effective skin care regimens to alleviate those rings and pouches below your eyes. These remedies can be found in your kitchen, refrigerator and right at your fingertips. Take a look!

Fast fixes for dark circles and under-eye puff:

Tea Bags To The Rescue!

For dark circles, the caffeine in green or black tea is known to narrow blood vessels and reduce black colouring. Steep two tea bags (green or black), squeeze excess water, and chill in the refrigerator for 10 minutes before placing over your eyes for 15 minutes or more.

Coffee Ice Cubes

Try this caffeine fix for the skin; keep some coffee ice cubes in your freezer. Spend a few minutes gently rubbing an ice cube under your eyes, along your brows, across the bridge of your nose, and from the outer corners of your eyes to your temples. This can calm blotchiness or swelling.

Cut A Few Cucumber Pieces

You’ll need two half-inch-thick cucumber slices from the fridge. Cucumbers are high in vitamin C and folic acid; place over your eye for 15 minutes; this helps constrict blood vessels and reduce colouring.

Give Your Eyes A Tap Massage

By tapping your index and middle fingers in a gentle circle around your sockets and across your brows and cheekbones, this may even skin tone and reduce inflammation. Do this massage gently with an eye cream for 30 seconds.

Grab The Colour-Correcting Concealer

When your boss texts you about an important meeting and you want to look natural, bright and fresh next morning, what do you do? A little color-correcting concealer can get the job done. Try Bollyglow’s Selfie-Ready correct + conceal duo, packed with moisturizing ingredients that feels like second-skin and provides hydration. The creamy texture blends smoothly into the skin to give a natural radiance. The product is formulated with Vitalux vitamins to reduce dark circles, puffiness, under-eye bags and fatigue.

Apply directly on skin and blend with your fingertips or a brush to cover undereye dark circles, blemishes and hyperpigmentation.
