A Concealer is a type of cosmetic that is used to mask dark circles, age spots, large pores, and other small blemishes visible on the skin. It tends to be more heavily pigmented and can be used with or without foundation.
Concealer is used to cover serious skin discolouration such as birthmarks, scars and vitiligo. It comes in a variety of shades, so one gets confused when shopping for it.
