A good branded concealer should be applied to hide dark patches and imperfections. It should be applied around the eye, blemishes etc.


One should be very careful while choosing a good branded foundation. It should go with your skin tone. Generally one should take a tone higher than the skin color. Not 2-3 shades up because that’s when it gives a very false look.
Foundation should be applied in dots in a circular motion. One can use rosewater in order to blend the foundation with the skin.
