Concealer has been a life saver these days! My skin has been acting up (especially around my chin) and I've been loading up on the concealer for those days that I want my skin to appear flawless. Below are my favorite concealers - and the best part is that they are all from the drugstore and under $10 each!
Maybelline Master Conceal $8.99 on Ulta.com
This stuff is magic! It's super high coverage and a little goes a long way. I dab a small dot on my Tarte The Buffer Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush as the first part of my foundation routine, just to even out my skin tone. It really works wonders on any redness or discoloration. Because of the consistency I don't use it around the eye area - it's a bit too thick. Because this concealer covers so much, I just use a dab of my foundation (currently in love with the Covergirl Ready Gorgeous Foundation) which gives me a much more natural look then if I was to go in with lots of foundation first and then cover up any redness or blemishes with concelear.
Maybelline Fit Me Concealer $4.19 on Target.com
This concealer is great for under the eyes. I go up a shade lighter than my normal skin color for the bright-eyed look. I dab a few dots under my eyes before applying foundation and blend with my Beauty Blender and then do the same once I've applied my foundation. You can also use it as a highlighter down the center of your nose. It's extremely comparable to the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer - I've used them both and they're so similar, the only real difference is the price $4.19 vs $29.
NYX Concealer in a Jar $4.99 on Ulta.com
I did not like this concealer the first few times that I tried it. It seemed to slip off my face within hours of application. I love it now that I've found the proper way to use it! With a clean finger, I like to dab it over any of my trouble spots that I may have missed once my foundation has been applied and viola! they remained covered all day.
