8 Common Foundation and Concealer Mistakes You Could Be Making

So, read on to learn how you can put an end to these foundation and concealer faux-pas!






From: L’Oréal Paris

Most of us can’t live without our foundation and concealer, and can you blame us? These essential makeup products help us look fresh-faced each and every morning. When we have dark spots we’d rather not have the entire world see, we have our handy foundation and concealer to thank for hiding them. But applying foundation and concealer for a flawless finish is easier said than done. Here are some of the most common foundation mistakes and concealer mistakes—you may not have even realized you were making them. The good news is, they’re all easy to fix. So, read on to learn how you can put an end to these foundation and concealer faux-pas!

#1: YOU ALWAYS FORGET TO PREP YOUR SKIN

You can’t expect your foundation and concealer to go on perfectly without the proper prep. That’s why you should apply a primer before putting on your foundation. If you’ve ever noticed that your foundation looks cakey, it could be because you’re not priming your skin. Primer can help to create an even, smooth canvas for the rest of your makeup. But the prep doesn’t just stop there: Your skin care routine is important, too. Exfoliate once or twice a week, depending on your skin type, to help slough away dead skin cells that may have built up on your skin’s surface and apply moisturizer every morning before you apply makeup.

#2: YOU DON’T USE THE RIGHT FOUNDATION FOR YOUR SKIN TYPE

If you have oily hair, you wouldn’t use a shampoo formulated for dry hair now, would you? Nope! The same thought should apply when it comes to deciding on the type of foundation you’re going to use. Have dry skin? Then pick up a liquid foundation with a radiant finish, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Foundation. On the other hand, if you have oily skin, look for a matte-finish liquid foundation, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Matte Foundation. Apply the same advice for picking out a concealer, too. 

#3: YOU TEST YOUR MAKEUP IN THE WRONG LIGHTING

Your foundation and concealer may look amazing under the bright lighting in your bathroom or your dressing table mirror, but do they look just as great in natural light, too? After you’re done applying your foundation and concealer, take a second to step outside to see if it passes the test.

#4: YOU BLEND INCORRECTLY

Nobody wants a line of foundation across their face—and it’s even worse when you don’t realize it’s there until it’s too late to fix. Oops! Streaks defeat the whole purpose of applying foundation, so use a makeup blender, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender, to buff out your makeup for a smoother finish.

#5: YOU CHOOSE A CONCEALER SHADE THAT IS WAY TOO LIGHT

When choosing a concealer, you may think that you’re supposed to reach for a color a few shades lighter than your skin tone, but that’s not really the case. If you pick a color that’s too light, instead of covering blemishes and skin redness, you’ll be highlighting it instead. Who wants that?! Stick with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Concealer in a shade that matches your skin tone instead.

Face Makeup MISTAKE #6: YOU LAY YOUR Concealer ON TOO THICK

Another common misconception is that concealer should be applied thickly in order for it to truly cover your skin properly. When it comes to texture, concealer should be blendable. If it comes off thick, apply a smaller amount and blend as you go. This can help give you the proper coverage while also giving you a more seamless finish. Use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Concealer Blender to apply concealer.

#7: YOU APPLY CONCEALER BEFORE FOUNDATION

This face makeup mistake is probably one of the most common beauty errors. Foundation should be applied first, followed by concealer. Think of it terms of what the products actually do: Foundation is supposed to give you an even base and to “lay the foundation” for a flawless complexion, so to speak. Concealer is then supposed to cover up any imperfections that are still visible.

#8: YOU FORGET TO SET YOUR MAKEUP

Once you’re finished applying foundation and concealer, your job isn’t finished. If you want your makeup to last—and of course you do—it’s a good idea to help lock everything in place. The easiest way to do this is with a light dusting of face powder. If you have dry skin, try the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Powder. Oily skin types can opt for the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Matte Powder. When you have your face powder pick in hand, dip a fluffy makeup brush into it and swirl the powder over your skin to set your face makeup.
