White concealer has a plethora of beauty uses, even as one of the least-popular shades of concealer purchased by women. Pure white is a vibrant reflector of light, and when properly applied, white concealer can be a useful complement to many make-up routines. However, white concealer often needs to be used with a foundation or powder that matches your skin tone to achieve the most natural look.
Use a fine-tipped white concealer pencil to line the inside of your lower lash line to widen and brighten tired eyes. Pencil on a thin layer and blend with a clean fingertip. Use a freshly sharpened concealer stick each time to prevent eye infections.
Combine a bit of white concealer with your favourite lipstick or gloss and dab a bit in the centre of your bottom lip for the illusion of a fuller, plumper pout. You will only need a small bit of both. Blend the concealer and the lip shade together on the back of your hand with a cotton swab or fingertip to achieve the desired hue before applying.
Mix a bit of white concealer with a liquid or creamy foundation and apply to bags or dark circles under your eyes. The trick to this is to put more of the concealer in the shadow of your under-eye puffiness than on the puffy area itself. By applying more in the shadow you will look more refreshed. Applying concealer directly on puffy areas often only serves to make them more noticeable. Make sure your skin is clean and moisturised before you start.
Make a mole temporarily vanish with white concealer by using a cotton swab to apply it directly on the mole. Cover the mole until it is completely white but not too thickly layered, then dab on foundation until the mole is indistinguishable from the rest of your skin.
Substitute the eye shadow you normally use close to your brow bone and upper lash-line with white concealer. You can use the white alone or blend it with the eyeshadow of your choice to lighten it. Using white concealer as an eye shadow can be especially fun if you are heading to a nightclub that features black lighting.
