The concealers that will change your life

Hey, hey.

This week we are talking concealers. This is one make-up item that I definitely cannot live without! First things first, I’m sorry to break the news that one miracle, does-it-all-concealer simply doesn’t exist. Well, if it does, please tell me?! Because I haven’t come across it… For me, concealer is used in different areas for different reasons, so it seems only right that I would need more than one product. Here are the three concealers I use on a regular basis.

Eye, eye!

With early starts to make it to the gym and (occasional) late nights for after work drinks, my eyes need all of the help they can get. I have an eye cream by Kiehl’s that is supposed to help with brightness but I usually still need a concealer to hide those dark circles properly. Now, Vincent Longo May be a brand you’ve never heard of, but it’s about time you did. I absolutely love my Vincent Longo Liquid Canvas Concealer. This stuff is AMAZING! I paint the concealer on in a triangle under my eye and it works wonders. The easiest way to cheat eight hours sleep!

On the spot

Then comes the concealer mission that’s needed for pesky spots – and boy do I get my fair share! Although, my skin has improved massively since I started using apple cider vinegar as a toner (see the before and after pics here). Ever since I tried this Clarins Instant Concealer one a couple of years ago, I’ve never looked back. It’s the perfect texture for smoothing over pimples and spots and it doesn’t leave skin looking cakey.

Palette perfection

For a while I suffered with annoying spots right in the middle of my cheeks (yeah, thanks for that) and I really used to struggle because I’d apply concealer but then once my bronzer or blusher was applied, I’d almost be rubbing it away a revealing the spot again. I found the perfect solution with this amazing palette. It’s Revolution’s Ultra Cover and Conceal Palette and I’ve purchased it in light-medium. There’s a range of shades so you can perfectly mix and match for all areas of your face. Plus, did I mention that it’s only £6?!
