I’m a makeup fan and you’ve been using concealer all wrong… this simple trick gives you an instant face lift | The Sun

CONCEALER is a staple in our make-up bags, but it turns out we may have been using it the wrong way all this time.

The internet is forever schooling us in beauty techniques and a new contouring trend on social media has revealed the correct way to use your concealer and immediately give yourself a fuss-free facelift.



We've learned that concealer isn't just for hiding the bags under your eyes or the odd blemish, as concealer, if used properly, can actually alter the shape of your face.

Beauty fan Mekaela Farris has gone viral on TikTok after sharing her concealer how-to video online, that has since been liked by thousands.

Mekaela regularly shares makeup tips, tricks and techniques for oily, acne-prone skin, but her latest one reveals that by targeting certain areas with the concealer stick, you can instantly lift up your face.

The beauty whizz uploaded the video with the caption ‘tries to lift my face using concealer, what do we think?’.
