Concealers are known to be the best substitute and I know some people swear by it, but first give your humble foundation a shot and who knows you might convert.
A concealer is essentially a thicker and creamier version of foundation, so it makes sense to replace it with one. But make sure the foundation you substitute is not water based.
Here are some rules of using a foundation as a concealer :
- Use the exact shade to match your skin tone.This means you could use your regular foundation as a concealer instead of buying a separate one.
- Don’t rub the foundation instead dot the foundation on your problem areas and then lightly dab.
- Don’t do an overkill. You want to achieve a natural look and not enhance the areas around the eyes but blend it with the rest of your face.
- Finish off with a highlighter and light eye makeup.The idea is not to make your eyes stand out, so use subtle eye makeup.
