Different types of concealer how to use them, and coverage charts

Concealer is kind of like a thicker foundation with different colored under tones to mute red or blue area's on your face such as a blemish or under your eyes
You can useally find concealer in 5 different forms such as
Cream or potted concealer
Liquid or wand

Stick concealers are just like a lip balm or lip stick except its skin colored.

Coverage - This concealer is useally pretty full coverage and is good for everywhere on your face
Best to apply with - fingers, Rub it on from the stick to your face then blend with your fingers.
Good for - Under eye circles, acne, any dark areas such as around your mouth, eye's and nose
How easy is it to apply - Stick concealers are one of the easiest to apply and blend and when done correctly will look natural and won't sink into fine lines

For stick concealers I recomend- Maybeline cover stick

Pencil concealers (above) are shaped just like an eyeliner pencil but obviously has concealer instead of eyeliner in it

Coverage - Thick and full
Best way to apply - Draw over area with the pencil the blend with a small synthetic brush
Good for -  Pimples, and under eyes

For pencil concealers I recomend- E.l.f. studio concealer pencil and brush

Powder concealers (above) come in a small jar with a shaker type lid on it or in a compact like pressed powder

Coverage - Medium to full coverage
Best to apply with - To apply powder concealer you use a wet brush to make it a liquid temporaraly then when it drys its a Matte powder
Good for - Under eye area

For jar or cream concealers I recomend- Nyx concealer in a jar (pictured above)

Liquid or wand Concealers (above) are like a lipgloss container and doefoot applicator
