Face Concealer and Highlighter

Face Concealer and Highlighter

What it is and what it is for?


The concealer balances the skin by neutralizing any blemishes, blemishes or shadows and usually comes in four colors: green, salmon, pink or lilac. Formerly used only by professional makeup artists, but increasingly explored by consumer brands.
The highlighter is used to create a skin feeling with more light (used a lot in winter when we have dull skin). You can mix a little illuminator with the base itself or apply a layer at the end, for an overall brightness and a brighter appearance.


What are the most used ingredients and their function?


The concealers come in various colors: green cancels red spots (bubbles and rosettes), salmon hides purple and bluish tones (dark circles), pink cancels dull and tired skin and lilac yellowish skin.
Highlighters exist in powder, being the most universal and that goes well with all skin types; liquids, ensuring a smoother result with shine, but that should be avoided by people with oily skin; in cream, a variation of the liquid, only a little more consistent.


What is the most used packaging format and what are the most frequent sizes?


The most used format is the tube and the most frequent sizes vary from 10ml to 30ml.


What to take into account when choosing a concealer/highlighter?


You should always take into account the type and tone of the skin, so that the concealer or illuminator provides the desired effects.
Those who have fair skin and have a deeper background should opt for an illuminator in shades of silver, champagne, pearlescent or slightly pink. Anyone who has naturally brown skin or is whiter, but is tanned should invest in golden tones. The woman with black skin should look for dark golden products, bronzers and orange tones, to harmonize with the skin.
The powder product is ideal to finish an oilier skin, since the creamy or liquid ones would be perfect for normal to dry skin.


What are the recommendations for use and tips?


Liquid and paste products can be applied with your fingers, sponge or with small duo-fiber brushes.
Powdered products, on the other hand, can be applied with a fan-shaped brush or even with a small powder brush or blush or a large, more fluffy shadow.
Some of the key points for the application are: under the eyebrows, on the top of the cheeks, forehead, chin and above the lips. When illuminated, these points gain prominence and projection for reflecting the light.


What are the pros and cons of using a concealer/highlighter?


Concealers/highlighters promote greater beauty and enhancement to the skin, but we must also take into account the disadvantages.
In certain cases, allergic reactions can be triggered by these products. In such cases, it will be important to check the composition of the product and make sure that none of them could be harmful to the skin.
In addition, the excess oiliness of some products can worsen the condition of the skin.
On the other hand, these products guarantee a more natural lighted skin effect, neutralize blemishes and promote a healthier and more beautiful appearance to the skin.
