Top 5 Concealers

As of late, my skin has decided to rebel against me and act like a teenager – I am breaking out like crazy and just when I think I have it under control, a new cluster of blemishes appears. Combine that with lack of sleep the last few weeks, which brings about beautiful under eye circles, I have been heavily reliant on concealers.

When my skin goes through these phases, I don’t typically like to wear foundation – why add more products that could potentially be irritating my skin in the first place? These concealers have been my go-to holy grail products for years, and I am able to combine them in a way where I am still comfortable enough to leave the house and not be self-conscious about my skin.

For the cream and liquid concealers, I simply use my ring finger to pat in and blend the product out – I have yet to find a concealer brush that works better than my fingers. For any powder concealer, I use a fluffy eye brush, such as the Sigma E40, to buff into the product, and then I dab it right on top of the spot that I want to set or add extra coverage to. Be cautious not to use too much powder concealer so your spots don’t look cakey.

What are your go-to concealers?

  3. I don't like Erase Paste either… Fake Up is totally different!

  4. Yes, I do the same thing! It provides great coverage and doesn't crease on me at all.

  7. I've heard good things about the Benefit concealer – I wasn't a fan of the Erase Paste because it was so heavy, but maybe the Fake Up is a different formula.

  10. Let me know if you do! Those under eye products have done wonders for me.

  11. The Bobbi Brown stuff is amazing – you're supposed to put it on and then layer it with another concealer, but you usually can get away with it on it's own if you blend well.

  12. Absolutely, I think you'd like it! And, that little tube has lasted me a long, LONG time.

  15. I agree! It's a great product – I also use Well Rested when I don't have much of a tan.

  20. I actually haven't tried any of these but the MAC concealer has been on my wish list forever! I use Bare Minerals Stroke of Light for everyday and when I *really* need to cover something, I turn to Benefit's Fake Up. Big fans of both!

  22. I'll always be a fan of the Clinique all about eyes concealer because it can be used all over your face and lasts forever 🙂

  24. My skin has been rebelling against me lately too! It's no fun. I love the MAC Prolongwear for under eyes in the summer. It's a bit too drying for the winter though. I might have to try the Bobbi Brown stuff though! Thanks for the recs!

  25. I love the Bobbi Brown concealer for under my eyes, but have yet to find a good one for covering blemishes! I'll have to check out that MUFE one because it sounds like a really nice finish!

    I'll have to try the Make Up Forever one – I've used their foundation and loved it!! I swear by either Erase Paste by Benefit or NARS creamy one – I use that now and love it!!

    I've heard that Make Up Forever stuff is amazing but I've never tried it. I LOVE my Bare Minerals though. I feel like it's got great coverage and doesn't feel too heavy! I feel your pain about your skin issues. Mine likes to do the same thing!

    I'm a huge fan of the summer bisque from BM. Definitely the best for setting liquid concealers and adding a bit more coverage!
