“If you’re working with a cream concealer that doesn’t set with a long-wear finish, I typically like to apply foundation first. This allows for the foundation to do its best at masking any imperfection, After foundation has been applied, I will assess what blemishes need tending.”

-Josh Graham, Lead Makeup Artist at Cate McNabb Cosmetics

 Blemished Areas

Blemished Areas:

“The same approach can be taken to concealing blemishes on the face—a brush is great, but sometimes tapping a bit of the product on with the finger can really allow for a layering effect,”

 Cream Concealers

Cream Concealers:

“Without a doubt, my biggest is aging skin with some uneven color. Occasionally, I’ll have dark circles as well. It matches my skin tone perfectly, and has a buildable texture that provides a flawless finish that works well on all areas of my face that need a little concealer help. I love that it isn’t greasy; it doesn’t leave a ‘dewy finish.’ I have combination skin, so I steer clear of that.”

-Shannon Smyth of A Girl’s Gotta Spa!

-Make Up For Ever educator Lijha Stewart
