Hi, I'm Christina Farrell with, and today we're going to show you how to effectively apply concealer and corrector colors. So, the first thing you want to do is look at your corrector color. You want to try and find colors that are in the salmon tone. If you're fair skinned, look for a light pink with a hint of salmon; medium to tan skin, look for salmon and darker skin look for more of an orangy bronze with that tint of salmon. All these colors are really going to help to counteract the dark circles which we all fight with. So, first off, we'll apply this light salmon color 'cause Sissy has beautiful skin, it's very fair and you want to apply it just in a tiny crescent shape gently right where this shadow is. This is really where those dark circles take place, where the sleepiness, "Look up", and exhaustion happens. So, as you can see I'm just kind of concentrating in that crescent circle right there. You want to blend it out; I prefer a brush, but you can always do it with your fingers. It's just that the fingers sometimes really can't get into these little nicks and crannies effectively. So, a nice concealer brush really does the job. Okay. So, as you can see that already brighten up her eyes right there. The correctors are so important to help you get a brighter whiter look for your face. We all want to look like we got six hours of sleep, even eight if possible, and this is the way to do it. Now, the next step is take the concealer of your choice, for Sissy this is a light beige and you want to apply concealer in what I like to call the triangle. Just right there. This is where those shadows really happen. I know a lot of us want to put concealer all around the eye 'cause we feel that's really going to brighten up the look, and in fact, it doesn't. It distracts from the eye and creates the kind of that raccoon effect. Instead, focus the concealer right here where those shadow and then, if you still want to add some brightness around the eye, use a nice highlighter on that cheekbone and that will give the same effect. Now, under the eye, I'm using my fingertip 'cause it really helps to kind of blend in that color. And then on the corners, making sure it blend. Now, look at that difference it made? It really instantly wakes your eye. Concealer is my favorite secret weapon from when I'm tired, don't have much time, but want to look put together. So, once again, my name is Christina Farrell of and this was, "How to effectively apply corrector and concealer?"
