THE BEAUTY EDIT: ODE TO CONCEALERS

23 August 2015

Good bases are hard to come by but we needed every base's right hand man/woman to achieve the perfect base - concealer. While concealer is most useful when it comes to covering up dark circles, some other concealers are best for covering blemishes, freckles, scars, etc..

On today's post I want to shed some light on a few concealers that I've been using for the past 2-3 years while I gain a few more on rediscovery.

CLINIQUE AIRBRUSH CONCEALER

It was my go-to concealer for eye-brightening effects when I was 18 (?), and recently I'm back to rediscovery of this concealer. While concealers are usually best for covering up freckles with thick and creamy texture, this concealer is very lightweight on the skin. Call it lightweight, where the name does its work, it's best for under-eye circles.

YVES SAINT LAURENT TOUCHE ECLAT

Another concealer best for under-eyes, it also does an amazing job for highlighting your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, your brow bone and the inner corners of your eyes for a good brightening effect.

NARS RADIANT CREAMY CONCEALER

I love this concealer! While I have heard so much about this concealer I caved when I stumble upon a NARS store when I was travelling. It does a perfect job of covering up redness and even blemishes, so it was one of the best concealers I have ever used.

COLLECTION LASTING PERFECTION CONCEALER

An honest dupe of the Nars concealer, in my opinion. A little less creamier, of course but it does the same job perfectly - also a great option for those who prefer makeup on budget. There are many bloggers that claimed for it to be too drying on the skin that patches would appear, but so far, so good on me. Perhaps spray on a setting spray or use a finishing powder(?).

MAYBELLINE ERASER EYE CONCEALER

I bought this when I've read that Amelia Liana loved it; it didn't disappoint. I love using this under my eyes to cover up the dark circles but sometimes I also use this to dab on my blemish scars and it too does a great job at it. For better coverage on blemishes I would prefer using another concealer.

MAC STUDIO FINISH CONCEALER DUO

I've been raving about this for the past month - it's another one of the best concealers I've ever used for covering up blemishes, dark scars, even under-eye circles. Its creamy texture is like no other; it doesn't cake, it doesn't dry out your skin and it doesn't smudge.

Have you tried any of these? Which are your favourite concealers?
