About the Expert
Hi, I'm Christine. I'm a makeup artist, and I'm going to show you how to choose the right shade of concealer for olive skin. What you'll need are concealer and a brush. This is option, but I like to use a brush. It gives a more even application. The first step is going to be to choose your concealer. Now, how to do that for olive skin especially if you're going to be covering dark circles is you want to pick one that has a warm tone. Dark circles are usually cool because they're bluish or purplish or greenish and so you want something warm like orange, red undertones like this one. This one has a warm undertone. The next step is going to be to apply the concealer and I'll show you how to do it under the eye. I like to use the brush like I said so I'll just take the applicator and then grab the brush and just scrape some off of that applicator, just like that and now you're ready to go in underneath the eye. So, I'd like to just tap it underneath to get the pigment there, and then I'll go back in and lightly smooth it out. This gives a nice, even kind of airbrushed look and again you don't have to use the brush. You could use the applicator but I like to use the brush. It gives you a little bit more of a desired effect and you just smooth it all around and you can also layer it if your bags are really deep, you can go ahead and put another layer on there. And there you go, that is how you can choose a concealer for olive skin tones. Really easy to do, just make sure you get that warm tone in there and you'll be perfect, good to go. Thank you for watching. I'm Christine, bye.
