How to Choose Your Concealer and When to Apply It.

Before asking yourself how to apply your concealer, it is important to choose the right color and know when to apply it.

Choose a concealer color one tone below your natural skin tone. A shade that is too dark can accentuate the appearance of dark circles, while a shade that is too light may not camouflage them.

When should I apply it? Concealer or foundation first? The answer is, apply it right after foundation. Many people make the mistake of applying concealer directly after moisturizer. In fact, if concealer is applied before, it may lose its correcting and illuminating action. In other words, it's as if no concealer is applied because the foundation covers it all. The ideal gesture is therefore to first apply the moisturizing and skin-protecting cream, then the foundation, BB or CC cream over the entire face and finally the concealer under the eyes.

How to Apply Concealer?

As mentioned above, before applying a concealer, you must first take care of your complexion. Once you've applied your foundation, apply a few drops of concealer from the inner to the outer corner of the eye. If you have very dark circles, use the triangle method to provide better coverage and brighten your eyes. Then blend gently with a brush or makeup sponge.

Typology Tinted Concealer.

At Typology, we've formulated a tinted concealer that's a hybrid of skincare and makeup. In addition to blurring the appearance of your dark circles, it reduces them over time through the active ingredients in its formula:

  • Caffeine.

    When we drink coffee, our sleep is disturbed, which may be the cause of the appearance or aggravation of dark circles. However, studies have shown that the application of caffeine to the skin improves the appearance of dark circles. This paradox is explained by the fact that caffeine stimulates blood circulation. In addition, it promotes lipolysis, which helps to reduce the appearance of bags under the eyes.

  • Cornflower hydrolate.

    Cornflower hydrolate is known for its decongestant properties, which help to reduce the bags under the eyes. By facilitating blood irrigation, cornflower hydrosol stimulates the evacuation of fluids accumulated in the extracellular medium in the eye contour area. It thus makes it possible to soften the tired and inflated eyes. It also reduces the pigmentation of the rings, making the glance défatigué and illuminated. Moreover, the hydrolate of cornflower offers an anti-inflammatory and alleviating action for the fine and delicate skin of the contour of the eyes.

  • Niacinamide.

    Niacinamide, or vitamin B3, helps reduce the appearance of blue circles by stimulating blood flow and restoring a more even skin tone.

    When our tinted concealer is used as a concealer, niacinamide helps to fight blemishes with its anti-inflammatory properties.It also helps restore the skin's barrier function and aids in the healing process.

    concealer is a 2 in 1 product combining care and makeup. We recommend that you apply the tinted serum all over your face and then follow with our tinted concealer under your eyes.
