About the Expert
Hi, I'm Todra Payne, professional makeup artist. Today's video is how to choose concealer for dark skin. Now your options are going to be either a liquid concealer or a cream concealer. I am going to use a cream concealer today. I tend to like the creams better because you get more coverage from them. Your tool is going to be a simple nylon brush like this, a concealer brush or it can be a paint brush. I picked this one up at a paint store, craft store, somewhere like that and what you want to do, sorry, is just swipe across your concealer like this. You don't need a whole lot and you're going to apply it starting all the way in the corner like that. Now you can see it's lighter than my skin but I'm going to blend it down into my foundation so that it lightens that area. See that? And then you just want to tap it down with your finger and if you'd like you can set it with a loose powder as well. I'm going to do the other side too but I'm sure you can see a difference already. Starting at that corner and dragging it out. See that? And just pat it down with my finger and again if you want to use just a little bit of a powder just to set it you can do that as well. And that is how you choose concealer for dark skin.
