This topic is very interesting because now, everybody wants to have every shade of concealer; one to highlight, one to correct, one to cover imperfections, one to contour, and so on; but there's a lot of misconception or misunderstanding in what the concealer is good for. First, let's define concealer: A concealer is a skin like toned product that was first created to correct and cover blemishes, dark spots, scars, big pores and dark circles under the eye area.
There are also color correcting concealers that help to tint the undertone color of your skin or the spot you are correcting. This type of concealer you have to be careful with, because if you use the wrong color you might end up emphasizing or creating a whole new color of the spot you wish to correct.
I will go in more depth in another article on which ones are the color correcting colors of concealers and how to use them, but now I want to share with you my favorite concealers so you can try them and add them to your makeup bag or kit.
The first one is Kevyn Aucoin The Sensual Skin Enhancer, this is a foundation/concealer product designed to really correct and cover all you might have in your skin. This formula is amazing and super versatile, I love it because it helps to correct the skin, leaving a velvet matte finish that's so skin-like that you don't feel it in your face. It works wonders in the under eye area and correcting blemishes or any dark spots.
The second one is Kat Von D's Lock It Concealer, I fell in love with this product since the beginning. It is very covering and long lasting. It is also very versatile and leaves the skin with a matte finish but not cakey at all. It covers EVERYTHING, from dark spots, blemishes, pimple's scars, tatoos, etc. I love it!!
Last one, yes last one, because I'm not into concealers too much, I like to conceal and correct using as little products as I can; the last one is Mac Cosmetics Conceal and Correct palette. This palette is very versatile when it comes to have your correcting shades and conceal shades all in one. I like the formula a lot, is very covering and creamy; and it really does the job when it comes to conceal all the spots and the under eye area.
I hope this was good information, please let me know if you have any favorite products you wish me to try and what's your favorite concealer of all times!
