Often ignored and misused, concealer is an unsung hero. When used properly, it can be your best friend and secret weapon. I am a self-proclaimed concealaholic. It’s become the savior for my daunting dark circles. I am constantly trying new products and always intrigued by new application techniques.
Here are my top five tried and true concealers the run the gamut of high end and mass brand products:
1.Benefit Boi-ing Concealer
This is my go-to life saver for any imperfection that needs some “industrial strength” coverage. Whether I need to cover dark circles or blemishes, I can depend on it to see me through.
I usually just apply this concealer with my fingertips. I warm it up on the back of my hand first, making it easier to blend.
2.Benefit Erase Paste
This cream concealer has melon undertones to neutralize the blue pigments from dark circles. It is available in 3 shades; I use the lightest shade, and only apply it underneath my foundation. Definitely a miracle worker, and a MUST in my daily makeup routine.
3.Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer Dark Circle Eraser
I use this concealer as my highlight under my eyes, overtop of my foundation. It has great coverage but is extremely easy to blend.
4.IT Cosmetics Bye-Bye Under Eyes
The name is self explanatory. This concealer is heavy duty and I tend to only use it in cases of extreme emergency. The coverage is as full as it gets, and the product even boasts great skincare benefits such as Vitamins C & K plus collagen.
5.NYX HD Concealer
My favorite thing about this concealer is it’s doe-foot applicator. I keep this one handy as a backup because it can pretty much do anything. This concealer can cover blemishes/imperfections or be used a highlighter.
