Q: What should I look for in an everyday concealer?


A: A great everyday concealer provides light to medium coverage and is lightweight to keep skin feeling comfortable and looking natural. Dermablend Quick-Fix Concealer SPF 30 offers a smooth, blendable texture with long lasting wear for everyday concerns such as, under eye circles, age spots, bruises or freckles. It works for moderate to major localized skin flaws, and provides buildable coverage that won’t enhance the appearance of wrinkles or pores.

Q: What products can I use to cover up blemishes, or minor acne scars?


A: Using a medium coverage concealer like Dermablend Smooth Indulgence ConcealerSPF 20 will ensure that you have a lightweight texture product that can perform in any situation. This concealer provides twice the coverage of classic concealers without the heavy feel. It evens the skin’s complexion and won’t enhance the appearance of fine lines or surface imperfections. The lightweight, blendable texture provides a flawless matte finish while delivering all day hydration and 12 hours of wear.


Q: Should I wear a concealer lighter or darker than my skin tone?


A: The shade of concealer you should use depends on the skin issue you want to cover. When looking to conceal under eye circles, your concealer should be lighter than your natural skin tone. Since shadows casted onto your face can make circles seem darker than they actually are, a lighter concealer will help brighten the skin. When looking to conceal a blemish or imperfection located on the body or your face, concealer should be the same shade as your natural skin tone to ensure that it will blend well with the rest of the products that you use.Smooth Indulgence Concealer SPF 20, which comes in 8 shades, provides twice the coverage of a classic concealer for up to 12 hours of wear and provides full coverage for any isolated facial skin flaw.


Q: What is the best technique for applying concealer?


A. Apply Dermablend Quick-Fix Concealer SPF 30 directly on desired areas or with fingertips. For under eye application, place dots of concealer along the lash-line and tap (never rub!) starting at the inner corners of the eye with your fingertips or the Dermablend Concealer Brush, and work outwards. For other imperfections, apply the concealer to the problem area and then gently tap with your fingertip, or brush to blend edges.


Q: How can I make my concealer last all day?


A: To set make-up and reinforce wearability, try Dermablend Setting Powder. Available in a loose or solid formula, the powder ensures smudge-resistance and enhances wearability.
