Apply foundation first, assess its effectiveness, then perfect the complexion only where necessary to cover-up lingering blemishes and dark spots.

VIOLET SAYS: La Prairie’s Skin Caviar Concealer Foundation SPF 15 has taken the guesswork out of the color matching game by providing a concealer that perfectly matches its corresponding foundation.

Highlighters tend to be low on pigment concentration and high in light-reflecting shimmer. A color correcting concealer with a heavier dose of pigment is optimal for trouble spots.

VIOLET SAYS: La Prairie Light Fantastic Cellular Concealing Brightening Eye Treatment color corrects, reduces puffiness and illuminates the under-eye area in one sleek pen.

When covering a blemish, it's important to completely cloak the unsightly spot from every angle with one swift, even application.

VIOLET SAYS: Use the pointed tip of the Beautyblender to fully cover blemishes. Its unique sponge-y composition allows it to completely envelop and hug a blemish for 360º coverage with one dab.

Those unable to commit to an entire bottle of foundation or full-face coverage may find the answer to a perfected complexion in the light coverage of a creamy concealer.

VIOLET SAYS: Nars’ Radiant Creamy Concealer is equipped with its own brush applicator for light to medium coverage. Dab and blend only where necessary and cancel out any unwanted ruddiness in cheeks, on the chin, and around the nose.

The desire to cover dark circles may be overwhelming, however, fight the instinct to slather on concealer in the area underneath the bottom lash line. Instead, dab on small amounts of pigment along the lower hollow of the eye and blend.

VIOLET SAYS: Giorgio Armani Maestro Eraser Concealer not only evens out skin tone but also delivers a dose of hydration to the skin for a radiant, dewy finish.
In Polite
Society
In polite society, a long NIGHT should end with two things: a good story and an even BETTER concealer.
