Top Favorite Concealer's Revealed
So, one standard thing I can always count on is I always have problems with hiding the dark circles under my eyes. Not to mention I have recently been breaking out a lot, and Lord knows I can’t let any blemish go undealt with, I always end up picking! Which means I need to whip out the concealer to cover up the damage I’ve left behind. I’m sure you can relate…?
I’ve been up and down, and all around with my likes and dislikes of what concealer I will commit myself to before I go marrying myself off to any one concealer to handle the job. I'd like to "date around" and have a few options for whatever the season it is that my skin is in.
I know I'm not the only one who needs concealers for different reasons and seasons, our skin and needs are ever changing. With that being said below I decided to list off a few of my favorite concealers that have become “go-to’s for all types of occasions and conditions me and skin find ourselves in"
Some things you should know about what I personally love and look for in a concealer is:
1.High pigment, I want it to cover up whatever it is I’m applying over, and last for a long, long time!
2.Easy application; nothing messy or complicated. Something I can blend in with my fingers right before I head into work or a lunch date.
3.Something that won't dry me out, I prefer a silky, fairly dewy finish.
- It Cosmetics "Bye-Bye Under Eye”
This concealer probably has the lightest pigmentation out of the bunch that I will be chatting about. But don’t let that fool you, this concealer has a high impact pigmentation; it’s a very dewy, malleable formula. Which makes it great to use under the eyes, because there is not dryness to accentuate fine lines. This one has the most “slip" to it, so if you're working long hours, or running a lot of errands, you’ll need to powder it down with a translucent powder.
2. NARS “Radiant Creamy Concealer”
This one is probably my “favorite child” of the bunch, if they took her away, I’d be on my knees, nursing my vain girl problems away. I simply love it! If I had to say, I’d probably marry it…What can I say, I’m committed to her! I have tried other concealers, but I always wonder how my NARS “Radiant Creamy Concealer” is, and if we were the match made in heaven I always thought us to be... I dare to say, I think we are:)
So reason's I love it, It simply conceals with a high Med coverage. It's creamy but isn’t too slippery that I need to babysit it. Needless to say, it stays in place! It has the perfect combo of silky, and matte.
3. HOURGLASS "Vanish Seemless Finish Foundation Stick"
Besides the mouth full of a name, it is what it says, its a foundation... But conceals like a concealer, so I use it as one:) I love it! This concealer is the "responsible child" of the bunch.
reason's being, I don’t have to watch over it, I can rely on it to take care of what I need and ask of it. It's ultimately a matte finish but still has glow. So not to worry, it won’t take away any youth with the matte element. Thank you Hourglass for this easy stick application and coming through with a formula that covers up, and doesn’t take too much of a blending effort.
4. Kevyn Aucoin “The Sensual Skin Enhancer”
Watch out, this heavy hitter just stepped up to bat, and with her it is always a home run!
This concealer means business, and boy does it take care of it. You have to make sure you use it with caution, it can be a bit aggressive in accomplishing what it needs to do, but when used properly, its a god sent.
This is an insanely pigmented concealer. It covers up blemishes and discoloration. I’m hesitant to use it under eyes, because of the product's density. It's thick so it will get caught in fine lines easily. I use to only to highlight for TV or performance where there is a lot of lights, or a very pesky pimple.
