I get lots of questions from you guys regarding my makeup, and what my fav beauty products are. I will for sure share many more favorites of mine, but honestly, if I would have to pick one beauty related product that I can’t live without for the rest of my life, and that I would recommend having, it would def be a great concealer. Many girls suffer from under eye circles and I also have them occasionally. Lack of sleep, bad eating habits or even a genetic problem can cause under eye circles. Ladies, the solution to this… invest in a great concealer, because it truly is key to a healthy, bright radiant looking face.
shade – Light Petal
The first concealer I ever came across, was from Clinique. The All About Eyes Concealer is a multitasking, oil-free formula that disguises dark undereye circles while helping reduce the look of puffiness. The long-wearing, moisturizing formula won’t crease or settle into fine lines. It is Oil-free, Ophthalmologist tested & for all skin types. It’s creamy/ heavy texture makes it a perfect coverage. Covers up perfectly without making you look insane and most importantly it doesn’t settle into wrinkles. My number ONE during the day!
How to use:
- Apply on bare skin or over foundation.
- Squeeze a small amount onto back of hand.
- Dip concealer brush in the product, then stroke over area to be covered, blending well.
- Build coverage by adding more when needed.
- Avoid rubbing once application is complete.
Yves Sain Laurent
shade – 2.5 Luminous Vanilla
First of all, we don’t have to talk about the packaging anymore right?!, cos you guys know by now how much I looooove everything wrapped in gold. Ok, but what’s inside is even more beautiful. After hearing about Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat Radiant Touch through a friend of mine, I wanted to check for myself what the hype is all about. The YSL Touche concealer is a wand formulated to enhance radiance and awaken the complexion. The texture is more of a leightwheigt texture and perfect when you want to achieve a minimal highlighting. I usually use this concealer only for highlighting.
How to use:
- Click two to three times to get sufficient product on the brush.
- tap into skin
- To brighten your overall face, use the pen down the bridge of your nose, the brow bone, above the brow and on the tops of the cheeks. For brighter illumination, try using a shade lighter.
shade – light/medium
And last but not least, let me introduce my HOLY GRAIL concealer to you. First time I came across Tarte cosmetics was at a model job. I remember, I had a very bad cold the day before the shoot. Coming to set in the morning, I thought I wasn’t able to look my best for this job,BUT there was Tarte cosmetics aaaand some amazingly talented make up artist who clearly did his job right… After hair & makeup was done, I looked like I just came back from a 2 weeks beach vacation.
This is where I fell in love with Tarte. Not only did the makeup artist an amazing job, more importantly, I noticed how amazing these products were while he used them on my face. What stoot out to me the most from his whole Tarte collection, was obviously the Tarte Colored Clay CC undereye corrector. You can cover blemishes easily and blend out the concealer seamlessly, with no dryness or flaking on the skin. It covers dark under eye circles like no other. The nutrient-rich formula itself is absolutely perfect. It’s hydrating, and smoothes skin—for an instantly bright-eyed + it’s providing such an opaque coverage. So basically All At Once 😉 I’m using this one in addition to my clinique one on a daily basis and especially whenever I have to fight bad under eye circles or have to look like I just got back from a vacation. 😉
How to use:
For a youthful-looking appearance, use a concealer brush to apply to the undereye area from the inner corner to the outer corner. Gently smooth and blend with a brush or your finger using a light patting motion, for a flawless, crease-free finish.
