7 Different Uses of Concealer You Probably Didn't Know About There's more to it than the obvious.

Concealer is a must-have for every beauty girl! Aside from the fact that it has the power to hide pesky zits and dark undereye circles, it's actually a very versatile product that can help you with your everyday makeup looks and routines. So before you dismiss buying the pot of concealer you've been eyeing or give away the concealer stick you bought that was a shade too light, read on to see all the great and helpful ways you can use it.

1. As a primer

You won't need to buy a separate tube of primer because your concealer can work as the perfect alternative to make your eye makeup last and pop! 

2. As a highlighter

This is especially perfect for concealers that are a little lighter than your actual skin tone. It can act as a non-shimmery highlighter for your eyes, cheeks, and nose! 

3. For perfecting your brows

From hiding stray, unplucked strands of hairs to shaping the inner and outer arches of your brows, your concealer is the perfect finishing tool for killer eyebrows. 

4. For defining your lips

Whether you want a bigger pout, a more defined cupid's bow, or basically a more polished-looking lip, applying concealer around it will do the trick! 

5. For making your lip color pop

Dabbing a little concealer all over your lips before applying your lipstick will make your lippie pop and last longer.

6. For hiding eye makeup mistakes

Accidentally applied a bit of mascara on your lids? Applying concealer is a quick and easy way to cover upyour makeup mistakes. 

7. For defining your cat eyes

Feel like your cat eyes don't pop as much or isn't as angled as you want it to be? Go over the edges using a concealer brush dabbed in a little bit of your favorite concealer.
