Should Concealer Go On Before Foundation?

*Affiliate links.

I mentioned in my last beauty blog post about me discovering concealer should go on before foundation. Well I have tried it and I am now completely sold on applying my concealer before foundation. At first, it didn’t make any sense to me. The Foundation makeup is the base of the entire makeup. I thought the only product that should come before the foundation is the primer, so I have applied my concealer after applying my foundation for many years now. Until I stumbled upon a beauty writer that was strongly against this method of makeup application.

Should Concealer Go On Before Foundation?

Yes! You should apply your concealer first before your foundation. Your makeup should start with primer/moisturiser, concealer, foundation, cosmetic powder and the rest. Foundation is deigned to even out the skin tone, while concealers are for hiding dark circles beneath the eyes, blemishes, age spots, large pores and other facial skin issues. Concealers are great for making your eyes pop and for creating a flawless makeup

The way it works is for you to hide what needs hiding with your concealer, before you even out the rest of your skin tone with the right shade of foundation.

 

How to Use Concealers

I use concealers sparingly as it is easier to add more if needed than to get rid of excess concealer makeup. I dot it concealer lightly on spots needed and blend it gently with a concealer brush for a smooth finish. Less is always more when it comes to concealers and foundations especially. The last thing you would want is to find your heavy makeup cracking after a few hours.

  1. When I have some imperfections, I always apply the concealer before the foundation, because it simply works much, much better this way. On a daily basis though, I only use a tiny bit under my eyes, so I apply it on the top of my foundation.

  2. I’ve always put my concealer on before the foundation. It would feel odd doing it the other way round!

  3. I always put concealer on before foundation – it never turns out well when you try and do it the other way round at least in my experience anyway.
