Too much concealer makes you older

Here’s the thing about concealer, though: As much as certain celebrities tout contouring and baking your makeup to give you a flawless look, those techniques can look totally fake in real life.

Heavy concealer only works when the rest of your makeup is very heavy, so if you’re not loading on the cosmetics each morning, you should go a different route.

Instead of heavy-handedly applying concealer, try this:

1.Dot on just a bit with your ring finger, or a makeup sponge, focusing your efforts towards theinnercorners of your eyes.

2. Blend well. (This is key.)

The result will be an even look that seamlessly works with the rest of you face — and looks totally natural. Plus, this year is the perfect time to take a “less is more” approach to your makeup. Beauty trends are moving towards a more natural look, with dewy products like skin tints and face gloss taking center stage, while cake-y highlighters and heavy powders are on the outs.
