The key to achieving effortless and professional concealer application; a good concealer brush! Designed to blend, buff and build your coverage, the right concealer brush is every makeup artist's secret to a flawless and natural looking complexion.

What is a concealer brush?

A concealer brush is the ultimate multi-purpose makeup application tool that can also be used for brightening the under eyes, outlining the brows and contouring. Typically, a concealer brush will have a long handle with a flat, tapered head of densely packed bristles - this is to allow for precision application and coverage.

How to use a concealer brush

Use a concealer brush to stipple concealer on imperfections and under the eye. Then gently blend it out by patting the brush lightly in a circular motion.

Is it better to blend concealer with a brush or sponge?

It all depends on the type of finish you want to achieve. For a dewy look, opt for a small, damp makeup sponge but for optimum coverage - especially for under the eye, it's best to blend with a concealer brush.
