Hi, I'm Kelli. I'm an aesthetician and makeup artist at Ulta Salon and Cosmetics, and I'm going to tell you how you can rid of hickies and cover them up. Basically, because a hickey's like a bruise, it's going to go through a lot of various stages of discolorations. So in the beginning, it might have more blue, purple, black undertones to it. And then if you use a yellow-based concealer, that's going to help to neutralize those undertones and enable you to get better coverage. A little bit further down the road as it's kind of healing, it might turn more of like a greenish-yellow. Then, you'll be better of using more of a pink-based concealer to help to kind of neutralize those undertones to cover. So just to kind of demonstrate how you would want to use a concealer to cover. We're just going to take a little bit of our concealer -- this is a yellow-based concealer. We're just going to take a brush, and if you just want to look up for me, I'm just going to kind of... When you use a concealer, you just want to kind of do it in a patting and rolling motion. So I'm going to apply it with a brush to get the bulk of my coverage, and then I'm just going to go back in with my fingers and just kind of blend it out and soften it. To kind of soften the edges so it blends in with the skin. So that's how you would want to apply a concealer to cover a hickey.
