These two arm swatches show the difference between freshly applied concealer, and the same concealer after it’s sat on skin for five minutes. I know it is hard to believe isn’t it.  This just goes to show you what your concealer will look like after it drys and not only that but it should save you some $$ on wasted concealer.  Typically you will use less makeup if you let it dry for four to five minutes.  Read more about it here.


7. Want to disguise dark circles under your eyes, follow this simple makeup hack –> make sure to apply your under-eye concealer in a triangle shape
