Conceal all your mistakes with my top concealer picks!
May 27, 2019
It’s Monday morning gals, so that means we’re tired, grumpy and probably need all the concealer we can get! Right? #JustMe? Those Chanel bags under my eyes are not going to take care of themselves! Thankfully, the cosmetic world has provided us with so many options…so many, and as a result, I can just conceal all my problems! Finding the right concealer though, can be tricky, but thankfully, that’s why Rayne and I are here and doing these collaborations. Between the two of us we have about 8 to 10 recommendations, hopefully the right one is here for you!
Concealer: Because getting enough sleep is for quitters!
1. Tarte Shape Tape
This one is still fresh, because I did a post last month about this concealer. So you should know that this is my top concealer for concealing ALL the problems! The Tarte Shape Tape has a thick formula, but doesn’t feel heavy. I do find this formula is a bit dry, so I prefer using a a damp sponge to apply and to also set with a non-drying setting powder.
So I know I say that the Tarte Shape Tape is at the number 1 spot, but because it’s not readily available I hoard it. I hardly use it, because I don’t want to run out. Counter productive I realise. My most reached for concealer is the Elizabeth Arden Stroke of Perfection Concealer. A more creamy, lightweight formula does not exist. This isn’t super full coverage like the Shape Tape, but it does enough for me. It’s build-able and non-drying on my dry under eyes. I can’t rave about this one enough and I am due for a restock on this concealer. Definitely give it a try if you’re in the market for a new concealer.
I’ll be honest, I don’t use this concealer very often, but it was my ride or die for a long time. The reason I don’t use it, is the applicator tip annoys me at times. Mine always gets clogged and it just feels like an effort at times. That aside though, it honestly is a really good concealer. Full coverage, great shade range and affordable! If you’re on a budget, I don’t think you’d regret grabbing this one.
This is another one that’s hot off the press! I reviewed it very recently, so I don’t need to go into it too much. Another affordable one from the drugstore and I think it’s a pretty good dupe for the Shape Tape. Check the review out for more info.
I’m very proud of myself for having THREE drugstore options in this post! Go me! #BudgetBeautyQueen?
This concealer is as affordable as they come as well! I’ll be honest, I have only tested this concealer about 4 times, but I’ve enjoyed it. It has a thinner formula, but gives a nice medium coverage. The Wet n Wild Photo Focus concealer is a tad drying on my under-eyes though. I try to apply it lightly, and with a damp beauty sponge.
I know I’ve only really mentioned under-eyes, because that is really the only place I use concealer. Any blemishes that peep through my foundation, I don’t really concern myself with. I prefer a more natural look to my makeup, so you’ll always see my blemishes. I’m not about that face beat life I guess…..
So that’s it for my most reached for concealers! Let me know if you’ve used any of these or if you have any other recommendations, specifically for dry under-eyes. Now let’s head over to Rayne’s post to see what she reaches for and loves!
