When I first started doing my makeup I had no interest in using concealer. I didn’t have any big bags under my eyes or bad acne scars on my face that needed concealing, so It was a step I skipped. However recently I switched from wearing glasses to contacts and that has completely changed my routine! I’m starting to realize my glasses hid a lot of little imperfections in my face that now I use concealer to hide. I know it may sound ridiculous to have a concealer collection, but they all serve a different purpose!
Maybelline fit me in Cafe: This was my first concealer I ever bought and it is my tried and true! It has the best consistency, and it matches my skin tone perfectly. I use this to conceal when I’ve had a rough nights sleep or in my most recent instance scaring around the bridges of my nose from my longtime wear of glasses. If you wanted to use this as a highlight you could buy it in a lighter shade.
Nars Radiant Creamy concealer in Caramel: I bought this concealer based on its raving reviews on youtube but to be honest it’s probably my least favorite in my collection. I have really dry skin and the consistency of this concealer is exactly that, dry and pasty. If you have oily skin this might be a great match for you but me personally I don’t like the texture. It sat in my drawer for the longest time being unused until recently I started using it as a part of my eyebrow routine. Since the color is so light and yellow base I also use it to reverse contour on days I want a sculpted look.
Urban Decay Naked in Dark Neutral: The newest baby to my collection and it’s definitely one of my favorites. I sampled this before I purchased it (since I was so disappointed in my Nars concealer I didn’t want to risk wasting more money). It is exactly what my skin needs, easy to blend and has a lot of moisture! It’s a little more watery than most concealers but I personally like that. I have freckles right under my eyes and on days I want a natural look I like to use this concealer since I can blend it out to be really sheer. The shade that I bought is great to be worn by itself but when I want more highlight I blend it with my Nars.
Anastasia Beverly Hills in Warm Coral: This isn’t your typical concealer, but it did come in my ABH contour kit. I use this deep orange shade to help cover my dark spots. I have these scars on the bridge of my nose, that won’t go away no matter how much foundation I apply. I apply this concealer first, blend it out with a fluffy eyeshadow brush and then apply any of the concealers I have listed above. You can see its a little beat up because I use it alot!
What are some of your favorite concealers?
