  6. Illustrated face with concealer placed in upward angles from mouth, nose, around the eyes and above the eyebrows.


    By selecting a concealer shade that’s lighter than your skin tone, you can create luminous highlights that bring dimension to the face. A lighter concealer shade under the eyes will trick the light, leaving tired eyes looking brighter and more awake. Continue using this lighter shade to create a brightening, lift effect, applying your concealer in diagonal lines upwards along the forehead, eyelids, under-eye area, side of the nose and bottom lip.

    Tilbury Tip: Taking a lighter shade of concealer and creating an upward flick at the outer corners of the eyes can create an eye lift effect, leaving your face looking lifted and enhancing the shape of your cat-eye.

  7. Illustrated face showing where to apply concealer to contour.


    Concealer can also be used to carve out the contours of your face. Applying a deeper shade around the forehead and on the hollows of the cheeks acts as a perfect cream contour. Blending Charlotte’s magic concealers into the skin mimics the appearance of natural shadow, helping to shape and sculpt the look of the face by manipulating light and shade.

    The final step is to set your concealer in place using Charlotte’s globally-loved Airbrush Flawless Finish powder! Simply apply your powder on any areas you applied your concealer using Charlotte’s Powder & Sculpt Brush for a long-lasting, smooth-looking, gorgeous finish! If you love bolder, brighter under-eyes, then finish with Charlotte’s illuminating Airbrush Brightening Flawless Finish powder. A soft veil of this BRIGHTENING formula under the eyes and on the tops of your cheekbones provides a perfect lifting effect while LIGHTING UP the look of complexion to appear RADIANT!
