Yesterday, I was chatting with my good friend, Bamba Abello. She was asking me about what concealers I use. Apparently, she has a problem concealing her pigmentations.
I have a lot of pigmentations too, but it doesn’t bother me. You can’t totally conceal pigmentations. You can if you really want to but you will be piling up a lot of products on your face and it will come out cake-y. Which I don’t like.
I use full coverage concealer. The most I do is two layers. If it still won’t cover it, then I stop there. I want my make up to look natural (sometimes it’s so hard to do especially if I have new make up I tend to get carried away and apply a lot).
I apply my concealers after applying my foundation. And I used 2 kinds of concealer. One to cover pigmentations and blemishes and the other concealer is for brightening my under eye.
For my under eye brightening I usually use one shade lighter than my skin tone and the concealer for my pigmentations and blemishes I use one shade darker than my skin tone. So, basically, everytime I buy concealer I buy 2 shades.
Here are the concealers that I am using now. (I rotate them)
Maybelline Master Conceal Camouflage Concealer
I use this for my under eye brightening. I am using the shade 10 Fair
MAC Pro Longwear Concealer
I am using the shade NC 20. This is very thick and creamy. You only need a little, cos a little will go a long way. So, this small tube will last you a long time.
Maybelline Fit Me Concealer
This is one of Maybellines concealers that I like. I use the shades 20 sand and 15 Fair
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer
I am using the shades Ginger and Custard
Laura Mercier Secret Concealer
I am using shade 2.5
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind
The most popular concealer of Maybelline. This is very good. I have been using this for a long time now. Ever since it first came out. But this is not available in Manila. I “hoard” every time I go abroad. I am using the shade 120 Creamy Ivory
NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer
This is the latest concealer of NARS that recently came out. One of my favorite. I am using the shade Light 1 Chantilly
Chanel Correcteur Perfection Concealer
I am using the shade 10. This is good for under eye brightening
NYX HD Concealer
This is a color corrector concealer. And it comes in a few colors. But this is the one I like. Shade CW 11
Bobbi Brown Retouching Face Pencil
I am using the shades Extra Light and Dark
Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Flawless Wear Concealer
I use this mostly for my pigmentation. I use the shade 02 Light Medium
