The Best Concealers for Every Problem

The Best Concealers for Every Problem

I collect concealers like I collect lipsticks. In absurd quantities. It's a constant battle keeping them all contained to one drawer in my makeup storage. But the obsession and subsequent culling efforts have led me to many great concealer discoveries for every problem my face likes to throw my way.

The Best Concealers for Every Problem

UNDER EYE CIRCLES
The bane of my existence and my most frequent problem. Depending on the amount of sleep I've gotten the night before, I tackle them with one or a combination of concealers. My go to is the Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer since it's light weight, doesn't crease under the eyes, and lasts the bulk of my day. If that's jut not cutting it or if I'm looking for a bit more radiance, I add on the It Cosmetics Perfect Lighting Concealer in "Radiant Neutral". It leaves a much more dewy finish on the skin without looking shiny or drawing too much attention to my under eye area.

BLEMISHES
If my skin is being particularly dry and flaking, I reach for the It Cosmetics Bye Bye Breakout in "Light" because it doesn't dry out my skin or look cakey. It's full coverage in the sense that it conceals any redness without looking awkward or obvious. In the warmer months I'll go for Urban Decay's All Nighter Waterproof Full Coverage Concealer since it's a bit drier on the skin. If you tend to have more oily skin this would be a great option all year round.

DARK OR DULL SKIN
If there are any dull or dark patches on my face It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealing Pot is the unlikely solution. It's just too shiny under my eyes, but does wonders at cancelling out any dull spots by adding a nice radiance to the skin. It's super light weight, slippery almost in application. It doesn't have the greatest staying power, but does the trick for a handful of hours.

GENERAL COVERAGE
Do-it-all concealers just don't really exist, but if you're in the market for an all-around good concealer to tackle most of your problems, Urban Decay's Naked Skin Concealer or Kat Von D's Lock-It Concealer are both very comparable. The Kat Von D one finishes a bit drier on the skin while I find myself putting the Urban Decay offering all over my face on days I can't be bothered with more than one concealer (read: most days). It also seems to last a lot longer than all the other concealers in my collection. Plus it's the only one I've repurchased twice.

I'd love to hear your concealer recommendations for a gal with dry skin and pain in the butt dark circles. Send them my way!
