What is the difference between Concealer & Foundation?
I always wondered this because it seems like the same to me. Is it just a way to get you to spend more money or does concealer work better under the eyes than your foundation would?

From what I have seen there are all different kinds of concealers, but they are suppose to be able to cover the dark circles under the eye area more effectively than foundation would. I use mine on top of my foundation, I also use a liquid concealer. I find the stick to be a little too cake like for me...hope this helps.
I think if you don't have under the eye circles you could probably get away with only using foundation.

A concealer works on any problems you have on your skin. Around the eyes, blemishes on the skin, spider veins. etc. Foundation should just be a veil that makes your skin look lovely and even.

I trained in make-up a couple of years ago and I can assure you that it is vital. BUT it is completely your own choice whether you use it or not.
Concealer means what it says; it conceals. You need to find one that exactly matches your skin tone then apply a small amount onto the zit/blemish and dab in gently with your finger. You don't have to use foundation afterwards. You could just finish with some face powder.
For the skin around our eyes, you will find make-up brands have created roll-on concealers in creamy shades to match our skin tone. These are very good. I use a Garnier one and it works a treat. In more professional use we use colours such as lilac green and peach to counteract the marks on our skin, but that is really for glamourous photoshoots.
But it's your choice. But it does work if you find a good enough brand. It's not a con. !

It is only vital if you need to use as concealer. Even then a good foundation will cover most imperfections on the face. Mineral foundations are bests as they are normally in powder form and the coverage is great without clogging your pores.
I would suggest that you do not use a concealer on a blemish. Concealers are normally very thick and it would just clog the blemish and make it worse.

I don't know of any off hand but there are cosmetics around that have ingredients in which help the skin.

very true Pepsimax.
we should work at keeping our skin clear by cleansing, not just depending on make-up to cover up, BUT if we are off out to a special occasion, or where the lighting will not be flattering, then make-up is usually the answer.

I think Foundation and concealer are beauty cosmetics that are both applied to the skin. Foundation is mostly applied to the facial area to create a uniform color.
Concealer is a different kind of make-up that is used to hide pimples,
black marks or dark circles on the skin.

Try it out with some body lotion
Well now that you know what the difference is, you can go a step ahead and be smarter like me. What I do to put foundation is merge it with some body lotion from Parachute. it comes out really well on the face, does not let the make-up fade and helps it stay for long.

Foundation is for the entire face, to even out skin tone. Foundation is mostly applied to the facial area to create a uniform color, and also sometimes to change the natural skin tone.
Concealer is a different kind of make-up that is used to hide pimples, black marks or dark circles, and small visible blemishes on the skin. Concealer typically has a thicker consistency, and is used only where it’s needed, like blemishes, under eyes..
