Concealer is an invaluable cosmetic product for anyone who has under-eye circles or suffers from facial blemishes; it works to cover these imperfections, giving your skin a smooth and even look. Concealer can be purchased in liquid, cream or stick form. A concealer stick is arguably the most versatile, working well to conceal all types of imperfections without rubbing off easily as liquid concealers can. Application of stick concealer will add only seconds to your daily makeup routine.

Things You'll Need

Apply any foundation before you apply the concealer. If you prefer not to use foundation, the concealer can be applied directly to your bare skin.

Dab a small amount of concealer from the stick onto your finger or a small makeup brush. Then apply the concealer to the center of the blemish or under-eye area. If you prefer, you can dab concealer onto your skin directly from the stick, but this method doesn’t allows for as much precision.

Use a fingertip or brush to gently blend the concealer outward from the center of the blemish or discolored area until it appears to match the rest of your skin tone.

Dust a loose powder over the concealer before it dries completely. This will set the concealer and help prevent it from rubbing off over the course of the day.


  • Choose a concealer that is one shade lighter than your natural skin tone. Because blemishes are usually darker than the rest of your skin, the lightness of the concealer applied to the darkness of the blemish will even out to match the rest of your complexion.
