Concealer is a product that should ALWAYS be in your beauty bag; alongside your beauty blender, oil blotting sheets, and lip tint. Concealer is typically used to mask dark circles, age spots, visibly large pores, and other small imperfections that are visible on the surface. It is vaguely similar to foundation, though the formulation makes the consistency a bit more thick, and is used for particular spots rather than the whole canvas. Thus, when picking a color for concealer, people tend to choose one/two shades lighter than their skin tone to better hide their blemishes and dark circles under the eye.
Below, is my personal master post for my favorite concealers that are in the current market and are available in a wide variety of shades.
This product is the holy grail to nearly every single Youtuber I have seen; even to the point that I have managed to convince everyone in my life into trying it and loving it as I have. The downside is that it is exclusive to Ulta because I personally prefer Sephora, but I make the trip specifically for Tarte! *side note* apparently one is sold every 12 seconds, that is INSANE.
The botanical blend of Nars’ formulation hydrates, firms, and strengthens the appearance of skin by helping the “barrier” retain moisture. The light-diffusing technology evens out the complexion, so that skin will appear fresh and natural with a glowing radiant finish. It also delivers antioxidant protection to help shield the skin against damaging free-radicals.
This light and creamy concealer from Makeup Forever contains a high concentration of pigments that stay put, making it perfect for use on the face, as well as the body. I love the product, because of its high coverage, you really don’t need a full coverage foundation; you can easily pair with a lightweight BB cream or tinted moisturizer.
Clinique’s Beyond Perfecting Liquid Concealer+Foundation has a natural and matte finish with medium coverage. It is also sweat and humidity-resistant, dermatologist-tested, non-acnegenic, and appropriate for all skin types.
Neutrogena developed this formula with dermatologists, therefore the oil-free concealer features “MicroClear Technology” and reduces the appearance of blemishes for clearer-looking skin. Best of all it’s incredibly easy to apply and provides natural-looking color so you can cover acne without looking fully done up.
