All the Ways to Use Concealer Right from Top L.A. Makeup Artists

Thing of Beauty BY courtney conway 07/03/2019

 

While we are all for embracing the skin you’re in, we also know what a drag it is when undereye circles and zits just won’t quit. Luckily, the mystical sister trio behind the stand-out makeup line Rituel de Fille has introduced their first concealer, an otherworldly, all-in-one complexion perfector called The Ethereal Veil. As creators of the L.A.-based brand, Michelle, Caroline, and Katherine Ramos spent years figuring out the formula, which can be used a whole range of ways, inspired by Michelle and Caroline’s time spent glamming up the likes of Evan Rachel Wood and Emily Ratajkowski. Read on for Katherine’s concealer tips that just won’t quit.

 

 

ACE THE BASE

“You want a smooth, hydrated surface that’s easy to blend onto. Before applying concealer, first follow your normal skincare routine, including your favorite moisturizer. For a dewier, more sheer texture, you can apply concealer right away. For heavier coverage, let your hydration sink in a bit first.”

 

HAVE IT MADE IN THE SHADE

“For spot-concealing and getting all-over coverage, select a shade as close as possible to your natural complexion. You can test on your jawline to see which disappears, and Rituel de Fille also offers color consultations. For under-eye brightening, go a shade lighter. For matte highlighting and contouring, select two shades—one a shade lighter and one a shade darker than your skin tone.”

 

GET HANDS ON

“For full-face complexion-enhancement and spot concealing, our favorite way to apply is with fingertips. They’re warmer and will help achieve a natural-looking texture. Apply the product in a dabbing motion over the area that you want to have more coverage. Make sure to dab, not wipe, so that you don't remove the product as you are putting it on.”

 

BUILD A FOUNDATION

“To use concealer as a full-face foundation, start with something creamy like The Ethereal Veil. Pat it on and then blend it out until desired sheerness is achieved with either your fingertips, a favorite foundation brush, or a beauty sponge. We like fingertips since it’s the easiest to control, but a beauty blender is similar. It’s a great way to get more coverage without having that heavy foundation feeling.”
