We’ve all had those days where we reach for the concealer for different reasons, sometimes it’s to just brighten the undereyes while other times we need the heavy duty hide everything concealer… Here are my top 5 and what I use them for:
Physicians Formula – Concealer Twins (Green/Light)
These concealer X come with a stick applicator and together provide medium- full converge. I apply them with a wet beauty blender (the mini ones specifically for undereyes). I apply the light shade first then a drop of the green, and dab it on with the blender until smooth. I then set with loose powder ( at the moment using Chi Chi mineral loose powder).
L.A. Girl Pro Conceal (Green)
The ever popular L.A. Girl concealers. I usually reach for this one when I have dark circles under my eyes – consistency is thick and sticky so I only use a little with a damp beauty blender – I have a few of the other colours too but this one is my favourite for dark circles.
NYX Above and Beyond Concealer (Yellow)
This concealer is creamy and buildable. It does come in a tub and one layer gives you a brightening effect which you can build on if you would like full coverage. I apply this one with a damp beauty blender or dab it on using my ring finger.
Essence – Soft Touch Mousse Concealer (soft beige)
The cheapest and my go to concealer out of the bunch. It has a mousse / cream consistency – medium- full coverage (buildable) , it stays in place all day and doesn’t cause crease lines! I use this to cover both dark circles and to brighten.
Maybelline – Instant Age Rewind Concealer (Fair)
This is my go to for when I don’t wear make up and just want to brighten up under my eyes. It has fairly light coverage which is buildable and easy to apply using the twist sponge head. It has a slight shine to it and had been a repeat buy of mine.
Let me know your favourites – until next time!
