You've probably heard of the word concealer, but what exactly is it? Concealer is a make-up product intended to camouflage pimples, dark circles and other impurities. You can also use concealer to highlight certain areas on your face, also known as contours . Concealers are available in a variety of forms, such as solid and liquid concealers.
Before we go into the concealers further, it is useful to know the difference between a concealer and foundation.A foundation is the basis of your make-up look. It makes your skin look even. A concealer is not for the whole face but only for imperfections or to contour. You can also get rid of dark circles or red spots with concealer.

The first thing to consider when choosing a concealer is whether you want a solid or liquid concealer, and with what finish. This depends on your skin type, which type suits your skin better:
Dry skin:it is best to avoid a solid concealer and go for a liquid concealer. Just make sure that the concealer does not have a matte finish, this will only emphasize dry skin.
Oily skin:we recommend a cream or stick concealer, this ensures that the skin will shine less. With oily skin, you can opt for a concealer with a matte finish.
If you have found the right concealer, you still have to find the right color. When choosing the color of the concealer, we recommend choosing 1 or 2 shades lighter than your own skin color.
Choosing a concealer is hard enough, and then there are so many different types. But what is the difference between a solid and liquid concealer?
Liquid concealer:a liquid concealer is easier to fade than a solid concealer and therefore has less coverage. You do, however, have a more natural result. A liquid concealer is best used on dry to normal skin.Fixed concealer:a fixed concealer has a very intense coverage. Because fixed concealers are a lot drier, you have to be careful with dry skin, for normal to oily skin, a fixed concealer is much more suitable.
No, concealer is not necessarily bad for the skin, but it is important that you take good care of your skin. Clean your skin every morning and evening with make-up remover, so that the skin can 'breathe' again. In addition, it is wise to use a day cream to moisturize the skin.
