Concealer is possibly the one product that makes the biggest difference to your makeup. If used correctly you can erase the antics of the night before, remove all traces of any blemishes and basically make yourself look like you have amazing skin! If used wrongly you can ruin your makeup making yourself look like you now have white bags under your eyes!
At present I am using three concealers that I adore! One from MAC that is called Pro Longwear Concealer. This concealer is a lightweight fluid that gives medium to full coverage, you can apply with your fingers or a synthetic brush, it comes in 15 shades, so great for all skin tones. It come in a small glass vial with a pump, be very careful not to pump out too much when you’re using it for the first time, you only need to barely touch it. The second concealer that I love is from Armani. Maestro Eraser is not only one of the best concealers that I have ever used but it is also a skincare product which helps to reduce pigmentation, meaning it helps get rid of those nasty dark circles, genius! It comes in 6 shades. The third and final concealer that I use in my kit is from Shiseido, this is what I use when the big guns are needed! The Natural Finish Cream Concealer covers flaws and blemishes while giving you a natural finish. It is also great if you suffer from redness on your cheeks. It comes in 3 shades.
