Can Concealers Benefit My Healing Journey?
Concealers may be used to
cover light bruises that range from light brown, yellow to gray, as well as

Can Concealers Benefit My Everyday Makeup Routine?
Beyond using corrective
concealers during healing from a cosmetic procedure, these products can be a
great addition to your everyday beauty routine. Concealers help reduce the appearance

the inner and outer corners of the eyes, frown lines, nasolabial folds (creases
that run from the corners of your nose to the outside corners of the mouth),
marionette lines (lines extending from the corners of the mouth), and the small
dark depression that forms in the chin right below the lower lip. Concealers
can also cover minor imperfections such as blemishes, freckles and age spots.
