Professional Grade: Making Concealer

Shame on me for not sharing this with you guys sooner.

I picked up a trick while at the Makeup Show back in March. I was talking to the Koh Gen Do rep and she showed me how to make concealer. No… really.

I paid a visit to my local Beauty Supply store (Hey Boo Boo Ninja!), and was explaining to Sarah and Alyssa what I’d learned… and they went NUTS. They got to mixing all manner of foundations trying to figure out what worked and what didnt.

Here’s what we know for sure… the Koh Gen Do Face Powder is probably the best medium for this little experiment.

This little container is so expensive… OMG. I’m still kind of not over it. But I like the ‘retro’ feel of the packaging, and the powder actually works. So there ya go.

Here’s what you do: You take a little foundation on the back of your hand, and a little powder, and you ‘pat’ the mix together until you get the consistency you want.

For demonstration purposes, I used Koh Gen Do Moisture Foundation in #301

Alyssa and Sarah went all over the store, and even tried different kinds of powders. But they kept coming back to this one. So… I guess that means it’s a keeper!

Koh Gen Do makes amazing products anyway… and this Face Powder is no exception. You can find out more about Koh Gen Do products (and maybe do a little experimenting of your own) HERE.

  1. Wait…what? She SHOWED you how to MAKE concealer?? What was wrong with the other powders? they didn't give good consistency or they weren't as good concealing? Wow!! I'm just wow-ed

  2. I was blown away as well! The rep who showed me was kind of wondering why I DIDN'T know how to make concealer! LOL I think it's the consistency of the Koh Gen Doh powder. It's very dense. The two SA's at the store today tried to do it with MUFE Powder, and it didn't work nearly as well. Each time they tried a new powder, it mixed but the result lacked the opacity of concealer. They tried the Koh Gen Doh powder with all kinds of foundations, and ended up making all kinds of concealers!
