Another week... another blog post. Hope you've had a great one! I'm preparing a special something for you to thank you for your constant support... I'll tell you all about it in about two and a half week's time (so excited!) But, for today I thought I'd give you my top 4 favourite concealers of all time. Concealer is probably my most worn make up item, so I have went through quite a lot of different brands but somehow I managed to narrow it down...
1. Urban Decay Naked skin Weightless Complete Coverage concealer - €23.10 / £17.50. I had already mentioned this beloved product in my 2015 favourites so obviously I also had to include it in my top 4. It is definitely my most reached for concealer and I run out of it so fast. In my opinion, it only gives a light to medium coverage but Urban Decay did so well with the formula of it. Like the name says, it is weightless, it doesn't cake at all and it doesn't settle into any fine lines. I love to use this one mostly for highlighting my undereyes, bridge of the nose and cupid's bow. Just a tip: when you want to highlight these areas always go for a shade lighter than your actual skin tone.
2. MAC Pro Longwear Concealer - €19.20 / £17.50. Whenever I have really dark bad circles, this is my go to product. It's also great to cover any blemishes or scarring as it is very full coverage. The thing that annoys me slightly about this is that since it is so high coverage, you can easily overdo it, making it look very unnatural. The pump tends to dispense a bit too much product and I feel so bad wasting any of it, especially since it isn't very cheap. Lately however, I've found that placing some on my hand and then dabbing the RealTechniques Miracle Complexion Sponge in it and placing it on the desired areas is so much better than directly applying it on my face and then blending it with the sponge. It makes it look much less cakey and it doesn't crease.
3. Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer - €7.25 / £5.49. The formula of this is very thin and liquidy so if you have dark undereyes I would not say it's worth trying as it only gives light to medium coverage. But at the same time, it makes it very easy to blend. Because of its brightening effect, I would suggest to just use this for undereyes rather than blemishes. Its doe foot applicator is very good for applying product especially when considering that this is a drugstore brand. I would recommend setting it with a powder to make it last longer. I love to use this for days when I only feel like wearing very minimal makeup.
4. Make Up Studio Concealer - €11.90 / £10.95 - This is the concealer I use whenever I want to cover any scarring, blemishes, redness or discolouration as it's got medium to high coverage. It is very creamy and I find that it applies best with my fingertips. It has also got great lasting power. This brand is still not very widely known but I've always loved their products so far. It is a company based in Amsterdam however it does have various stores around the world. This is their UK website in case you're interested about this brand: https://www.make-upstudio.co.uk.
