Types of Concealers and Concealer Brushes

Depending on your skin type and the makeup look you're going for, the makeup industry has given us a wide range of concealers and concealer brushes. First, let's take a look at the different types of concealers:

Creamy Goodness

A creamy concealer is best for dry to normal skin type. It gives a radiant, opaque look for your daily "no-makeup" makeup look.

Liquid Sheerness

A liquid concealer gives more coverage than a cream concealer. However, it still has that sheer, lightweight texture.

Stick to It

Stick concealers will give you a matte finished look. These are best for a long day as they won't crack because of excess sebum or oil production.

Pencil Concealer

A pencil concealer is used for precision, and it's best to use if you consider yourself a pro makeup artist.

Now, let's take a look at the different types of concealer brushes available in the market:

Concealer Pick a makeup brush that suits you best.

Synthetic or Natural

The best under eye concealer brush to use is the synthetic one for being easier to clean and long-lasting. The synthetic bristles won't absorb any of the products, giving you a flawless, finished look.

Flat-Tip Concealer Brush

A flat-tip concealer brush is used when creating a cut-crease. If precision is your friend, then a flat-tip brush would be best to use. However, it is not the best under eye concealer brush for beginners.

Round-Tip Concealer Brush

A round-tip concealer brush will give you a more blended and even look, which most of us are looking for when it comes to concealers.

Pointy Brushes

Whether thick or thin, pointy brushes are used for hard-to-reach areas such as the sides of your nose and the corners of your eyes. These also provide precision and accuracy like a flat-tip brush but are better in terms of easy application.

How Should I Use a Concealer Brush?

Having the best tools for a perfect makeup look is essential. However, if you don't follow a good guide, you won't be able to achieve the desired outcome.

Here's how you should use a concealer brush:

  • Always make sure that you're using a clean brush.
  • Prep your skin by applying under eye cream or a primer.
  • Apply a concealer on the desired areas of the face.
  • Gently pat the concealer in and set it using a synthetic concealer brush.
  • Blend it till you get that flawless look.
