Same to color correcting, concealer has the function to correct imperfections. The difference is just concealer has a color that looks like skin.
Put on the concealer in the area that needs the coverage such as acne, dark spot, dark circle, and the area that you want to highlight. Leave for a few minutes until the condition is half dry if you want full coverage. But remember, not every concealer can use this method, because some of the products will be hard to blend if the condition is half-dry.
Apply Foundation Based on The Skin Tone
Now get into the foundation! You have to wear a shade of foundation that similar to your skin to avoid the clown face. Furthermore, adjust the coverage to your needs and skin condition. If you feel like your skin is clean and healthy, maybe sheer coverage is perfect for you. Otherwise, if your skin has a lot of trouble, you can prefer a medium to the full-coverage foundation.
The last thing that you have to consider is, the finish of the foundation! Yes, there are dewy, semi-matte, and matte finishes. A dewy finish is created for dry skin people. Then, semi-matte and matte finish for those who have trouble with oily skin.
