Leave it to the master marketers at P&G to take a pink lotion (the original Oil of Olay) and build an brand with several skin care lines around the Olay name. Then there’s the cross-branding: Cover Girl & Olay and the Gillette Venus & Olay razor. Cover Girl & Olay Concealer Balm is a recent addition to the Cover Girl & Olay line promoted by Ellen DeGeneres.
I have a confession to make: I have never mastered concealer under the eyes. Many MUAs think that concealer is a basic and essential part of makeup. However, when I apply concealer, what looks good at one angle doesn’t look good at another angle. Then there’s the problem of blending.
So how do I use Cover Girl & Olay Concealer Balm? To cover red spots on my face. After my husband made remarks about my makeup looking like a mask, I went for a nautral look. First, I used Mally’s Skin Perfecting Tinted Liquid Face Defender to even out my skin tone. I then applied Cover Girl & Olay Concealer Balm over the red spots and blended it with the end of a moistened Beautyblender. Presto! Cover Girl & Olay Concealer Balm melds with the skin.
