Fresh-faced, radiant skin is in! And the right concealer is the quickest, easiest way to achieve it. Used correctly, concealer can transform the look of your face entirely, bringing luminosity to your complexion, disguising dark spots, covering up breakouts so they look invisible - and you can even fake eight hours sleep in a flash.

The best concealer formula can also mean you can afford to skip foundation completely, and we’re on board with anything that cuts down on time spent on getting ready. But what’s the best way to apply concealer? And what order should it be applied in your routine? It truly is the one product we all need to get right, so try these expert tips below.

Applying your products in the right order

How to properly apply concealer

  • A darker shade than your skin tone can sculpt features. Apply around the top of the forehead and under the cheekbones. Choose our NEW nc Complete Crème Concealer in Sand.
  • Many make-up artists recommend applying concealer with your fingers since the warmth from your skin helps melt the product into skin – but we also love beauty sponges for a flawless blend.
  • Using different shades together? Nude, Sand and Ivory shades of NEW nc Complete Crème Concealer can be blended on different areas of the face to highlight and add dimension.
  • If you want your concealer to blend in with your foundation for a natural look, we recommend colour matching the concealer with your foundation by testing both colours on your neck.
  • You can also use a lighter shade (Ivory) than your skin tone along the cheekbones, bridge of nose, center of chin, under brow bone and center of the forehead to bring light to your complexion.
  • Make-up free days? Skip foundation and just use one concealer shade for a lighter skin feel and quick application.

How to disguise dark circles

Everybody’s Zoom call saviour is a quick cover-up for dark panda eyes. Brighten and lift your appearance by correctly applying under eye concealer using these tricks.
  • Don’t only apply the concealer to where the dark circles are (that often looks too obvious.) Blend out across the higher planes of the cheek. Make-up artists call this ‘the triangle of light.’
  • You should also choose a lighter shade than your foundation if you want to liven up under-eyes.
  • Concealer looks most natural on the under eyes when you work in layers and build the colour up gradually, so be thorough when blending.
