Concealers are very important to me. I suffer with bad acne and naturally dark circles under my eyes, so finding the right concealer that will conceal my imperfections but not be too heavy is very crucial! I haven’t found too much of a difference between high end and drugstore, so you may as well save your pennies!
The Maybelline Fit Me concealer is an excellent dupe for the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer. It’s lightweight and the colours are really creamy and olive toned (which suits me brilliantly). The coverage is great and it retails at around £7/£8 depending on where you shop! The bottle tends to last me a while too!
The Revolution Conceal and Define concealer was a social media sensation for the majority of last year. It is an excellent dupe for the Tarte Shape Tape and the coverage is excellent. This concealer is a bit thicker than the Maybelline, however still feels lightweight and blends out beautifully. This retails around £4, however I find it doesn’t last very long.
When shopping on Beauty Bay, my favourite concealer is the LA Girl Pro Conceal. I have this in a light and a dark colour to conceal and to contour. The coverage isn’t as great as the others. However it still does the job and leaves a glowy, radiant finish under the eyes! This retails at around £5 online.
One concealer palette I’ve found really great for coverage is the MUA Conceal Creamy Palette. It gives you some colour correcting colours and some neutral colours, so is perfect if you need to cancel out the dark colours of eye bags and redness of blemishes. The coverage is fantastic, especially for a cheaper makeup brand! This product retails at £4 and you get 5 colours for that price!
My final fav is the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer. I have the foundation too and love them both! It’s a really creamy formula and the coverage is very good. There isn’t a huge colour range, however it is good to use under foundation to give a fresh, flawless base. This one retails at £4.19.
Concealer is a key part to any makeup look. Some people opt to apply it to cancel out colour and to conceal before a fresh layer of foundation. Others opt to use it over the top to brighten the high points of the face and to highlight. I often like to use two different ones in varying shades; one to conceal and then a lighter one over the top to highlight. It’s a crucial part of the makeup routine and makes you look flawless!
