2. Experiment with different colours and don’t be afraid to blend
When it comes to trying out each shade we recommend experimenting with each colour in the kit to find your perfect concealer shade. Inside the kit, the shades range from cool-toned to neutral-toned and finally warm-toned. This means that there is something for all different tones of skin. Because of this, it is best to experiment. It’s also worth noting that Veil Cover Cream shades can be blended together. Therefore, if you find you’re in-between two or more colours, you can mix multiple shades to create a new custom colour.
3. Take your time with application and always apply in natural daylight
To discover your perfect concealer shade it is best to take your time with the application. This means that you should apply the cream to your desired area in thin layers. Take your time with the application. Never apply the cream in thick layers. You should blend each thin layer into the skin before applying another. By doing this you prevent a cakey look from occurring.
We also recommend you apply Veil Cover Cream in natural daylight. This allows you to truly find the best colour match. Often artificial light can give us a false representation of what we are actually doing in terms of makeup application. This means whilst using the artificial light your makeup might look perfect. However, once in natural daylight you’ll likely discover that the colour match isn’t quite right. Our top tip is to apply your colour match in front of a window. This will allow you to see a true colour match and ensure that the cream you choose is the best for your skin.
