How to use the different types of concealer:

Pencil. It’s best for covering acne. The pointed edge of the pencil makes it easier to cover the acne imperfections.

Liquid concealer with a brush. This type is perfect for covering under eye shadows. Apply it on lines from the inner corner of the eye to the opposite corner. Blend in with a finger or big brush, but be gentle, because the skin under your eyes is very delicate. If you decide to use your fingers, it’s better to use your ring finger. Pay attention to the application of the concealer, you shouldn’t leave it contrasting to your skin.

Lipstick type of concealer. Use it to cover some acne “leftovers”, scars, veins. It will even out the skin complexion.

Continue doing your makeup after the concealer is set. Blend in your foundation with big, fluffy brush and apply translucent powder to seal the deal.
