How do you make a DIY concealer with crayons?
We don’t normally think of crayons as a makeup product but they can be utilized as a DIY concealer.
Crayons are made of paraffin wax and color pigments which make them a good choice for filling in fine lines and wrinkles.
The flexibility of the wax helps to create a smooth surface for other makeup such as foundations and setting powders.
This tutorial will work for you even in case you are not good at color matching to make DIY concealer at home.
The idea is to find a shade of crayon that’s close to or slightly lighter than your skin tone. The consistency of the DIY concealer should be thick enough to cover your trouble spots and you will need to blend your regular foundation on top.
