Top 3: The Three Wise Concealers
My first experimentation with makeup in my teens was with tinted moisturisers and concealers. And although my love for tinted moisturisers has faded, I’ve remained in love with concealers. These days there is such a wide range on offer, different concealers targeted for specific areas like dark shadows or spots. Here’s my current top 3 that I keep returning to.
My favourite concealer for using around the eye area and as a highlighter. It’s creamy but sinks into the skin without feeling heavy. It lasts all day and does not crease on me. It’s also good to use as an eye primer. The downside is the pump, as it always dispenses too much product. Considering the product is so good, I can live with this little nuisance. There’s nothing that this concealer can’t do. Conceals, brightens the eye area and acts as an eye primer! Best of all it looks flawless!
There’s something classic about Hourglass. Anytime I’m in Space NK I always gravitate towards Hourglass. It’s like the Elizabeth Taylor of beauty products; classy, glamourous. and expensive!! But of course she’s worth every penny! I use it mainly to cover up my monthly breakouts. I apply it with a small brush to blend into my skin (the formula is creamy and moisturising as it contains vitamin E), then add a little powder and I’m done. Me 1 Mother Nature 0. £23 well spent!
This is the concealer I turn to when I’m on-the-move or had a bad nights rest. The sponge applicator is gentle for dabbing around the eye area and you can blend it in by using just your fingers. I also use it on my chin, where I tend to get spots. The only thing I have against it is that the shade is slightly too dark for my fair skin. However, when I have foundation on and a little bronzer, it blends in well and provides a decent amount of coverage.
What’s your favourite concealers for under eyes, breakouts and on-the-moves?
