Concealers are lifesavers when it comes to covering imperfections, but they also come in handy for a variety of different makeup issues. The MacGyver in us is back to give you five unique ways to use them.

1. Concealer = Eyeshadow Base
Want your eyeshadow to stay put but don’t have a primer handy? Apply some concealer on your lids before shading to keep your shadows in check.

2. Concealer = Highlighter
Grab the lightest concealer you can find and use it in the corners of your eyes and at the brow bone for an instant lift.

3. Concealer = Lighter Lipstick
If your ultra bold pout is too much for the office, mix your bright lipstick with your concealer to tone it down a notch. You can even use concealer to mattify a shiny formula.

4. Concealer = Makeup Corrector
If you slipped when applying your eyeliner and don’t have time to wipe it off and start again, use a concealer to fix the line in a flash.

5. Concealer = Cream Eyeshadow
Liquid concealers like this one can be mixed with a bright, loose powder shadow for the perfect sheer hue that works for every day.
