Concealer Favorites

When it comes to concealer, I can be very picky when finding one I like. I believe that having multiple concealers for different uses can be beneficial. For example, you’re running errands, maybe you only need a little bit of coverage. Or on the opposite–you have a big night out planned and you want your skin to look flawless. I’ve tried many different formulations and these are my trusty go-to’s, no matter what look you are wanting.

Alright, this creamy full coverage formula by Make Up For Ever is by far the concealer I reach for the most these days. This guy will cover everything from tattoos to hyper-pigmentation. This concealer is truly waterproof so perfect for hot humid summer days where you don’t want your concealer to disappear. You only need a little bit, so this tube should last you a good time.  Also, if you are a makeup artist, I highly recommend this for your kit.

This Aqua Concealer by Tarte is true to it’s name. This water-like formula glides on beautifully and is very blendable. This must be set with powder as it will not dry down completely. The doe-foot applicator is very nice and big enough to cover any area quickly. Although, this concealer is not full coverage, I think if you want a little coverage at the gym or Sunday brunch, this should do the trick.

Marc Jacobs Re(Marc)able Full Cover Concealer is my #2 full coverage concealer. This guy is perfect under the eyes for a bright ‘I slept for 10 hours’ look. Each color has this fabulous under tone that cancels out any darkness you might have. I highly recommend using a brush to apply instead of a beautyblender. With a brush it glides very easily onto the skin, but with a beautyblender it somehow tugs and pulls at the skin making it very difficult to blend.

Okay, yes, this Mac concealer has been out for quite some time. But, this tried and true, Mac Pro Longwear Concealer is just incredible! I have recently fallen back in love with it. The small pump applicator makes it super convenient (and clean!) to use. This little size will last you a good year. It dries down pretty quickly, so if you are on the drier side you won’t have to set it with powder.

Clinique’s Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer is a flexible formula that is perfect if you are looking for more of a medium coverage. I personally think that calling this a foundation+concealer is misleading because it truly is a medium coverage concealer. It is small like a concealer and would not last you more than a month if you used it as a foundation.The reason I like this is because when I am very oily (specific special time of the month) I can trust that it won’t break me out or exacerbate any breakout I do have.

 

I hope you found this post interesting, especially if your shopping for a new concealer!
