4. For perfectly angled eyebrows, trace a short line parallel to the top edge with concealer and then blend.

Blend the concealer with a brush or, better yet, your finger. The heat of your fingertip can help to blend and soften the tone.

5. Cover your lips with concealer before you apply lip color to neutralize your lips and make the lipstick color pop.
