CONCEALER 101: Top Picks & Tutorial for a Flawless Face


Ahh, concealer. It's one of those "first baby steps" makeup products that we try out to cover up acne spots in our youth and dark under eye circles from late nights studying or, let's be fair, late weekends out in college.

Over the last several years I've tried my fair share of concealers and feel pretty happy with my arsenal of concealing tools as well as techniques to seamlessly apply them for a flawless, yet natural look. Lets go over some of the best options from all price points as well as my easy application technique!


PRODUCTS MENTIONED:

tinted moisturizer | Jouer Matte Moisture Tint in Nude
affordable concealer | Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in Sand

Readers, what is your favorite concealer and what areas do you use it for? Let me know in the comments!

  2. Thanks so much for sharing your tips! The Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in Sand must be great because it is never in stock when I try to buy it.

  3. I love the tarte concealer too. I also use one by amazing cosmetics that really covers the dark circles under my eyes. I enjoyed learning about the way you use concealer in your video. I will have to try the patting method you use when covering spots and acne.

  6. hey jenn, this video was perfect timing. I've been comparing concealers this whole week! I tried the Cle de Peau Beaute Concealer in Beige and I agree with you that it's a bit on the drier end. However, I've been using Chanel CORRECTEUR PERFECTION LONG LASTING CONCEALER and it has better coverage, lasts all day, and it's very moisturizing + does not crease. I use 20 Beige Ivoire. Try it out :) it's $30 less than the Cle de Peau Beaute. Nothing else I've tried have matched up to this Chanel one. But I will give the Tarte one a try. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Try looking for something a little more orangey or salmon compared to your skintone to brighten it up. You could also try layering 2 types: salmon underneath, skintone on top. That way you get a much brighter look. :)

  18. Hi Jen! I hv really dark eyelids. All eyeshadows appeared to be greyish on my eyelids. Any recommendation on which concealer that has this specific function or ways to apply it on dark eyelids?

    1. Benefit has an eyeshadow primer with concealer built in that can cover the eyelids too! It covers two steps in one and will even out your skintone both on and below your eyelids. Here's the link: http://bit.ly/Uca3DO

    1. Hands are easiest for me! It just has a fluffy texture that's easy to blend in naturally with fingers without wasting product. :)
