Foundation acts as a base to build upon, smoothing out imperfections and blending in with your natural skin tone. On the other hand, you use concealer to target specific areas such as blemishes, dark circles, or breakouts.
Something to remember when considering, "What is the difference between concealer and foundation?" is the order of application. It's recommended you use foundation first and then correct any uneven areas using concealer. While it's possible to do it the other way around, that might smudge the concealer, forcing you to reapply it. A beauty expert can help you pick the best shade and formula for your skin’s needs.

It's generally accepted that the best order to apply makeup is: start with primer for a smooth base, then apply foundation for a flawless canvas. Followed those with concealer to cover blemishes and correct dark circles, then with powder for the finishing touch to prevent shine and keep your makeup in place. We recommend using our best-in-class brushes to apply makeup seamlessly for an airbrushed effect.
