Concealer – your weapon for spots, dark circles, red blotches and blemishes!

Corrective sticks or concealers are a great product for correcting just about any facial flaws you can think of. Hide your dark circles, brown spots, angiomas, vitiligo, scars, spots, even unwanted tattoos – you name it, it can be masked by this miracle in a stick. Our professional make-up artist Pascale Guégan offers some helpful advice on how to get the best out of your concealer.

Practice makes perfect
Concealer sticks are generally higher in pigments than liquid or compact foundations, even corrective foundations. Always carry a concealer in your handbag to touch up your make-up in a skin emergency or to brighten and enhance your complexion. Start by moisturizing your skin and applying your usual foundation all over as a base. You can then apply your concealer. Dab it carefully onto the problem area, then continue to dab gently with your fingers, a well squeezed out sponge or a flat brush to blend it into your skin. To finish, set your make-up by adding a thin dusting of translucent powder.

Hollow, bluish or puffy circles
Under-eye circles can have many causes, but since the skin that covers this area of the face is particularly fragile, you have to tread lightly when trying to conceal them. By carefully applying make-up that’s suitable for sensitive skin, you can instantly disguise these nasty shadows. If your circles are hollow and dark in color, opt for a light concealer close to your natural skin tone. But if you have puffiness and under-eye bags, a great technique is to use a darker shade on the puffy part to reduce volume together with a lighter shade on the hollow area.

Acne, moles and scars
Always bear in mind this basic principle: applying a slightly darker shade to any “bumps” can create the illusion of smoother skin, and using a lighter color in the hollow areas around your imperfections can reduce their volume. On small spots or scars, use a precision brush. Apply a darker concealer at the center and a lighter color around the edges. Imperfections? What imperfections?

Can makeup minimize the signs of fatigue, especially under-eye dark circles?


Under-eye dark circles often appear when we don’t get enough sleep. But for some of us, the cause is excessive pigmentation (making circles look brown) or a teeming network of blood vessels beneath the extremely delicate lower eyelid skin (resulting in bluish circles). Either way, undereye circles make you look tired—no wonder they’re high on most women’s complaint lists. But makeup can help.


  • Before applying foundation, use a concealer.
  • Put tiny dabs of a slightly lighter shade on the lower eyelids for a fresh, more radiant look.
  • If your circles are bluish, apply a tiny bit of yellow corrector to neutralize the blue.
