Can you believe I never wore concealer until about 2 years ago when the makeup artist for The Bachelor put it on me? I had no idea what I was missing and now it has become an absolute staple in my makeup bag. I have different types that I like for different areas and some that are good for all over. On days that I’m just out running errands, I apply a little concealer under my eyes, some blush on my cheeks, a coat of mascara and I’m good for the whole day with half (ok..a third. Maybe a fourth if I’m being honest) of the makeup I usually wear.
Cle de Peau– Its super expensive but lasts forever and can cover pretty much anything! This is one that I use all over my face. Anyone who has ever tried it, swears by it.
Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer– This stuff is THICK but masks literally anything you need to cover. I use it on days that I a) have a serious breakout I need to cover up or b) will be on camera. I always mix it with some type of moisturizer and just use a tiny bit.
Temptu Under Eye Concealer– This has been one of my favorite under eye concealers for a long time. It really brightens your eye area so much that it can be worn alone.
Benefit Fake Up– I keep this one in my pocketbook and use it all over my face throughout the day if needed. I love it because its very moisturizing and won’t get into any fine lines.
NYX Concealer Wand– I use this one in Yellow to really brighten under my eyes.
Don’t forget a lesson it took me awhile to learn: very few things can age you faster than too much concealer. Just use a tiny bit and remember, you never need as much as you think you do! To apply mine I use a damp Beauty Blender or a MAC 130 Brush. I use both of these everyday that I wear makeup and love them, so if you don’t already have them I would definitely think about it. And don’t forget to use a setting powder once you’re finished so it lasts all day!
What are your favorite concealers? Do you have any tricks?
