Thick and creamy concealers are better to apply with small, pointy brushes. Such tools will perfectly cover up imperfections and allow to blend the product well. More runny cosmetics are better to be applied with sponges of fingertips. Cosmetics of such formula are easy to pat into the skin. The easiest to use are pen or stick concealers.
