TOP 5 AFFORDABLE AND EFFECTIVE CONCEALERS IN PAKISTAN
A concealer is an important part of any full makeup look, however, many people might have confusion regarding the difference between foundation and concealer. A concealer is a versatile product, which is similar to foundation except that it is generally of a thicker consistency. A concealer helps to hide age spots, dark circles, blemishes and blends these imperfections into the skin for a more even look. It is always best to use a small amount of concealer and blend it nicely so that it does not give an unattractive cakey appearance. You can also use a concealer to achieve a chiseled contoured effect, especially in the cheekbones and jawline area. A huge variety of concealers are easily available online and in stores in Pakistan.
