I have struggled with not only finding the right concealer but how to apply concealer the right way, so we dug deep and found the best tips for flawless face to help you hide all those imperfections.
What is Concealer?
Concealer was designed to cover up brown sunspots, under eye circles, and overall brighten up your face. It works wonders for covering up your under eye circles and dark spots.

The key is to try many and you can to find the right fit for you, and you can do this without spending a dime. How is this you ask right? If you go to Sephora or Ulta, they will give you samples to take home and test out. This is so important because the lighting in these stores is never flattering and will not look the same in natural light.
