Make For Men: A Beginner's Guide
Before you head on to apply a concealer or a foundation what you need is a primer as a first step. A primer preps up your skin for the make up that follows. Also, having a primer underneath helps make the makeup last longer than usual.

A concealer is going to be that most used product in your makeup kit; just dab it under your eyes or over blemishes and spots to watch them all vanish in a jiffy. If you have red cheeks, then a concealer can hide those red spots to blur them out. To use a concealer you don't really need a brush to blend it in, dabbing is the trick, just apply some and keep dabbing it for it to get absorbed quickly and do its job.
