If you’re anything like us, you have a very special bond with concealer. It’s one of our most trusted makeup products because it’s always there for us — even when it seems like our skin isn’t. Whether we’re dealing with dark under-eye circles or a spontaneous blemish, concealer can help make our skin woes disappear in a swipe. And that’s not all — concealer can do so much more than simply camouflage.. Find out six places to apply concealer to enhance your complexion, ahead.

Above & Below the Brow

Blend a thin line of concealer on top of and underneath the brows to make eyebrows pop and open up the eyes. This also helps with reshaping your brows or defining your arches. Be sure to use a full-coverage formula like the Maybelline New York Superstay Concealer to really clean up those edges for precise-looking brows.

The Inner Corners and Under the Eyes

To get rid of dark circles, conceal only the blue or purple tint beneath your eyes. To brighten up the eyes even more, tap a little concealer in the inner corners of your eye. We love using the L’Oréal Paris True Match Eye Cream in a Concealer for this area because it has the hydrating benefits of an eye cream with pigmented coverage. We also love the Kosas Revealer Concealer with caffeine, peptides and hyaluronic acid. 

Across the Bridge and Down the Center of the Nose

Apply concealer on the bridge and down the center of your nose to bring light to the center of your face and help contour the nose.

Kosas Revealer Concealer

Conceal the outer corners of the mouth to lift downturned lips if you want to hide the look of fine lines or wrinkles. A concealer like the Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Wear All Over Concealer is perfect for this because it’s lightweight and helps to minimize the appearance of lines and creases.

Center of the Chin

Combat redness or darkness by blending a small semicircle of concealer right at the crease in the chin. This is also a great spot to place concealer because it can help accentuate a great lip color as well.

Around Each Nostril

This area is commonly plagued by redness and broken capillaries. Brightening around the nose will help your skin tone appear more even all over. We love the Dermablend Cover Care Full Coverage Concealer because it’s incredible at canceling out any discoloration.
