Choose A Good Quality Concealer
The quality of your concealer will decide your overall appearance. Good quality concealers will ensure the presence of no texture and will give you a flawless appearance.
Select The Right Shade
You should make sure that you get the shade right. Ideally, a shade that either matches your skin tone or one shade lighter than your skin tone, will suit you well for concealing those little imperfections. However, for concealing acne spots, blemishes, freckles or birthmarks, you might require something more opaque.
Your concealer should also be a shade lighter than your foundation, besides your skin tone. You can try it to see if it suits well. Applying too dark or too light a shade will make you look artificial and made-up.
If you use too light a shade, you might end up highlighting the area beneath your eyes, instead of concealing it. Therefore, try it on first before buying it.
