Can concealer be used as a foundation?

While concealer can cover up many imperfections on the skin, it's best to use it in targeted areas where coverage is needed. Due to its full coverage applying concealer all over the face as a foundation may result in a cakey or dull look — plus most people do not need this level of coverage over their whole face. Instead use concealer just where extra coverage is needed.

Concealer is another base product you can use in your makeup routine (similar to foundation) but for some it may seem like a confusing product to use. Learn what concealer is, how to use it, and shop our concealers like Teint Idole Ultra Wear All Over Concealer.
