I’m calling it – concealer is my best friend. I honestly don’t know what I would do with out it! With my dark circles and redness my face would be an absolute mess if I didn’t have it in my arsenal. So this post is going to go through my favourite concealers and what I use them for.
First up is Napoleon Perdis The One Concealer – I would die without this concealer, or more like I would look dead without this concealer. This is a salmon toned corrector that does most of the covering up of my extreme dark circles, I use a small amount of this on the most effected areas and blend it in with a beauty blender. It’s quiet a thick paste so the beauty blender really thins it out and makes it look a bit less intense. On top of this I use the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser – This is a beauty world favourite and boy oh boy do I agree, its extremely light so it doesn’t cake which is definitely what you want with your under eye area. I use this over the Napoleon one which is works brilliantly to cover up the remaining dark circles and is light enough to add a bit of a highlighted look. Another under eye concealer that I love is the Amazing Cosmetics Concealer in Medium Beige – This is a heavy duty concealer, its super thick and covers up anything you can imagine. I mainly use this when I’m in a real hurry and need to quickly cover up my dark circles, I pop just a little bit in the darkest area and lightly blend it out. This doesn’t cover up my dark circles completely but it does a pretty good job. A lighter version of all of these under eye correctors is the Napoleon Perdis Mighty Concealer Pen in Pink Beige – This is a super lightweight corrector that has a pinky tone to it, I mainly use this for those no makeup makeup days, I apply a thin layer under my eyes blend it out and then follow up the Maybelline Dark Circle Eraser. This combination doesn’t look cakey at all, it definitely looks natural but it does show a little bit of my dark circles showing through.
The last two are what I consider face concealers. First up is the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer in Classic Beige – I know a lot of people in the beauty world use this under their eyes but it just ain’t strong enough for me. This is a beautifully light concealer that adds that extra little bit of coverage to redness and spots that foundation may have missed. I tend to use this around my nose, on my jawline where I also get redness and a little bit on my forehead. As it’s quite think it doesn’t cake up however, it isn’t the most long lasting concealer in the world so I tend to keep this for short days or very casual days. Finally I have the Elf Maximum Coverage Concealer in Nude – This is quite heavy duty so it covers a lot! I mean I probably wouldn’t call this maximum coverage but it definitely does the job. I use this in the same areas as the Rimmel one and it lasts brilliantly, I use this on long days and definitely nights out. Again it isn’t cakey at all but I tend to blend this in with a beauty blender so I get that incredibly flawless look.
So there you have it my myriad of concealer that will cover anything you wish. What concealers are your favourites?
