For some extra coverage or skin tone evening, concealer works wonders to hide any extra imperfections or brighten up the face. It is recommended to use one shade lighter than your actual skin color to use under the eyes in a V shape form, this will brighten the right areas on the face and leave you looking flawless. If you are using concealer to hide acne or wrinkles, use a shade that is very similar to your actual skin tone and only apply in those areas as a layer. i.e conceal the marks with concealer first, then apply foundation, then apply concealer one more time on the affected areas.

Eyeliner is perfect for defining the eye and shaping it according to your facial structure. It works best if applied after eyeshadow to tie the entire makeup look together. Using a good eyeliner is also necessary to prevent any smudging or fallout throughout the day. It can come in many forms such as liquid, pencil, and gel. The preference usually depends on what a person likes to personally use, or to create different looks with the different textures.
