The Concealer Guide

Hey, friends! The wonderful world of concealer is as varied as it is saturated, and thus finding the right camo cream for your needs can be a little tricky. Not all cover-ups are created equal - what might work for acne might not be great for hyper-pigmentation, etc - and so I've curated a concealer guide to help you pick the best product for your particular needs! Let's get to it.

You've Got Eye Bags For Days
When finding an under eye concealer it is important to find the correct ratio of pigment and viscosity, to avoid the fabled 'cake face' we all so inherently fear. While that thick, creamy pot concealer may seem like a coverage dream, it will undoubtedly settle into your fine lines, find a nice partner, and build a house there. A few concealers which nail the lightweight, full cover balance are the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer and Maybelline Fit Me Concealer.

Your Blemishes Are Coverage Resistant
Sometimes your face decides to create a new solar system of planet-sized pimples that are seemingly impossible to hide. Before you resort to acrylic paint, try the IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer - it is thick, pigmented, and a little goes a long way. Get coverin', pals.

Your Skin Tone Literally Cannot Even
Most of us suffer uneven skin tone, but not all foundations are engineered to correct this, however finding a good concealer can be a huge help. I love the Maybelline Master Conceal, as it is thick enough to adhere to the skin in mobile areas - such as the cheeks or forehead - but not so full coverage that it will settle in an unflattering manner.

You Find Eyebrows Tricky
As a clumsy person, I almost always mess up when filling in my brows. After testing many a concealer, I can say that Benefit Cosmetics Boi-ing takes the cake. It is creamy as hell, and therefore easy to blend, but it sets like beautiful, beautiful concrete. No brow smudges today, thank you so much.
