Ellis Faas – Concealer:

Upon Instant application of the Concealer it does not dry up too quickly, & feels Creamy & Light on the Skin. What I love about this Concealer is when you use it alone, it will immediately hide imperfections under the eyes such as, Dark circles, & uneven Skin tone. However, I wouldn’t just use this product to target my under eye region. I’ve used this product to hide pesky outbreaks of spots & uneven areas around my nose & upper lip area! The texture of the Concealer enables you to fully target any imperfection on the skin as contains High Coverage in a light and fluffy liquid.

What I look for in a Concealer? 

< A Concealer should Brighten up Tired areas in the Skin.

< To Cover up Blemishes & Dark Circles.

< To be used alone without Foundation to still achieve a Fresh looking face. 

The Ellis Faas – Concealer targets all these areas as I’ve mentioned earlier & I believe these are the most important things to look for when selecting a great Concealer!

Howto Apply your Concealer for the Best Results:

To Conceal Dark Circles?

If your aim is to conceal Dark circles it is best to apply the Concealer under the Foundation.

I would follow these steps in order to achieve the best Results:

1) Dotting the Concealer

Use the Concealer pen to apply dots under the eye area! Apply dots from the Inner Corner to the Outer corner of the eye!

2) Blending is Key

Use your Middle finger to ‘TAP’ in the concealer dots under your eye. Making sure the concealer is blended in well.

Do not rub as this will cause many stroke lines to appear under the eye!

3) Concealing other areas

Conceal Other areas (Uneven skin tone / blemishes ) Using the Tap in method & blend in < You can go over the Blemished areas again if you are applying Foundation First!

4) Apply another layer of concealer if you need more coverage.

5) Loose Powder

Conceal everything with a Loose Powder, apply the Loose powder with a Powder Brush!!!

& Then you will have Brighter & Fresher looking Skin!

To Conceal Blemishes / Spots?

I would apply the foundation first as it is best to conceal after you’ve applied your Foundation. This is because you will just be wiping away the concealer once you’ve applied the Foundation on top! As you need extra application to cover those pesky areas!

Beauty Tips on Avoiding Potential Concealer Problems:

*** A common myth is to use a concealer that is 1-2 Shades darker than your actual Skin colour. However, fact is this will make you look more tired instead of actually brightening up your face!

I would use a Concealer that is at least 1 shade lighter than your skin tone as you generally want to use a Concealer to hide Blemishes & Dark Circles this will enable a more brighter appearing complexion & will even out your skin tone.

You can use a Darker concealer when you are more tanned that is of a similar shade to your skin tone but make sure to also test out the colour before you purchase!!!

*** Applying your Foundation over your Concealer is just a recipe for disaster & will just waste away a good amount of Concealer!!!

The best thing to do in this case is to Either,

1) Apply your Foundation first, then Apply your Concealer on

Or

2) Some prefer to have less on their faces, especially if you are wearing everyday makeup. My suggestion would be to conceal the areas you need & then apply foundation around the concealed areas. That way you will only have one layer on, instead of many layers.

*** Applying Concealer incorrectly will result in Cake-iness or Strokes

The most important step is to lock in your Concealer with a Setting Powder or Loose powder to help even out your complexion!!!

  7. The packaging of this product is so unique and cool. At first glance this looks similar to a product like Touché Éclat but it definitely seems more concealer like, offering a bit more coverage.

    • I Love the fact that this Pen is a Twist and not press to release the Concealer! In fact it releases more product that way also! You’re right I love the simplicity of the Packaging & it does remind me of the Touche Eclat too 🙂 xoxox

  15. Hi Serene! Great tips on how to apply a concealer. For years I’ve used shades the same as my skin tone, but recently found out to use one shade lighter. Your makeup is effortlessly cool! 🙂

    • Hi there sweetie :-), thank you ah it’s ok a lot of people wear it darker or the same! But lighter will definitely brighten up your complexion 🙂 hehe thank you so much lovely !! xoxox

  16. I love the packaging of it ! Have you tried their lip thing in a similar packaging ?

  18. Just put on concealer based on your tips! Yeah, loving it too 😉

  19. to me it also makes sense to use a concealer that is at least a shade lighter than one skin- otherwise how it will hide the dark circles! the trick I think is to blend it in nicely.

  20. Omg this stuff looks amazing! I’m always trying to find the best product to help hide my tired mummy eyes. You look amazing and flawless. X
