As someone who has immersed themselves in the world of beauty, I feel like I am able to predict many trends before they become mainstream. One I really didn’t expect, however, was that concealer would suddenly be so sexy. Why has this happened? It’s all about contouring and cooking. I can’t think of anyone not curious about these techniques, and how they can magically transform your appearance. While I’m not big on contouring, I’ve owned multiple concealers for different purposes over the years. Allow me to introduce you to some new ones!
First things first, primers are a great way to lengthen the wear of your makeup, and to minimize the appearance of enlarged pores. This Anti-Aging Face Primer is $34 and delivers moisture to the skin while perfecting the canvas for your makeup application. No synthetic dyes, parabens, or sulfates are used in this product!
Amazing Cosmetics Amazing Concealer has a thinner formula that works almost like an intense foundation. It’s perfect for correcting larger areas, like a breakout. Retail price is $42.
These Amazing Cosmetics Perfection Sticks are great to use as a one-stop-shop. For those with a wardrobe of concealers, the pencil shape makes it easy to apply to tough spots, like the creases of the nose and chin. These are also super for highlighting the upper cheekbone with a lighter color, or contouring with a deeper shade. If you’re looking to buy just one concealer, this formula is versatile enough to use just about anywhere. Retail price is $23.
When it comes to concealing under the eyes, I always use a product with a bit of an orange hue, like this Becca Under Eye Corrector from Ulta Beauty. This shade cancels the blueness that makes you look tired and old. It’s instantly eye opening! Retail price is $29.
The older I get, the more I expect my product to multi-task. That’s the beauty of this Smashbox 24 Hour CC Spot Concealer. First you apply it to dark spots and blend. The finish is a natural looking, semi-matte. As you wear it, the formula works to reduce the look of those pesky dark spots! I’m in love! Retail price is $25.
