From the Drugstore: Maybelline New York Cover Stick
When it comes to concealing products that you can pick up easily and for well under $10, nothing touches Maybelline’s “Cover Stick” concealing product. This concealer comes in a number of different concealer tones (including green) so anyone of any skin tone can use it. It’s thick, it’s creamy, and it will cover up any sort of blemishes, under eye circles ad other discolorations that may be present on your face in no time. The best part is that it is 100% portable! Women who previously used a more expensive department store or beauty store brand try this product, and they never go back to their old concealing products.
NOTABLE MENTION: L’Oreal Paris True Match is a great concealer for anyone who is new to using concealer. The formula is created in such a way that it actually imitates your skin’s texture, it’s easy to blend in to the skin, it’s creamy, and it’s lightweight. Not only that, but it does a very good job of covering up ay blemishes and trouble spots.
From the Department Store: Yves Saint Laurent “Touche Eclat”
A touch of light is all we need to help conceal those blemishes on our face. Though this concealing product does go for $35 or so, it is the most popular “brightener” on the earth. This product isn’t a concealer per se as it is not meant to be dabbed on top of any areas that we wish to conceal. It is a “brightening” product which, when applied correctly, will highlight certain areas of the face which helps distract the eye from any shadowed areas, such as those dark under eye circles and wrinkles.
From the Mineral Makeup Aisle: Bare Escentuals bareMinerals Multi-Tasking Minerals
Mineral makeup is becoming all the rage, and for a good reason. What our more conventional makeup products can do, so can mineral makeup! This concealer will truly conceal any sort of imperfections you have, such as under eye circles, scars, and blemishes. This concealer come as a powder and can be applied right onto any imperfections you may have to conceal them. As an added bonus, this concealer is great as being a base for any eyeshadow you use.
For Concealing All Parts of the Body: Dermablend Cover Crème
It’s important to mention that concealing products do not exist solely for the face alone. You can conceal other blemishes that you may have on your body, which becomes alarmingly important when you try on that dress and notice a bruise on your calf, or you slip on that bikini and that scar you have on your stomach is all too apparent. This concealing product will cover up ay pimples, veins, sores, cuts and even scars. One thing that should be made note of is that as this is a body concealer, you should test out the concealer on your body and not your face to find an appropriate shade (the skin below your neck tends to be 1-2 shades darker than your face).
