The very first day I used the Sheer Cover Duo Concealer, I just used the lighter side. Did it match my skin tone? Nope too light. What to do...what to do? Ah! Mix the two together!
Sheer Cover has this duo concealer in four different shades. I have the duo concealer in the shade medium/tan, and since the product didn't really have instructions on it, I wasn't exactly sure how to use the product. I had to look up how to apply concealer and read a few of other people's blog to get a sense of how others apply concealer.
After seeing another makeup guru taking a bit of the lighter color and mixing it with the darker color and then using this combined shade to cover up dark circles, blemishes, redness and age spots; I decided to give this method a try. And this mixture color is just so perfect! It matched my skin tone a lot better and it doesn't look like I'm wearing concealer at all. All my imperfections became beautifully covered and I didn't have to worry about people staring at this emerging pimple on my face.
To apply this Sheer Cover Duo concealer, I like to go ahead and just use my clean fingers to apply it; if you like, you can always use a concealer brush or cosmetic sponge to dab a small amount of concealer to the area that you want a bit of extra coverage. Be sure to blend really well, starting sheer but increasing coverage by adding extra layers of concealer. After moisturizing my face, I usually apply about two to three layers of concealer. This Sheer Cover Duo Concealer can be worn alone, under or over makeup, but just make sure it dries before applying more makeup on top it. Lastly, I like to set the concealer with a bit of powder.
