If you could have only one beauty product in your makeup bag, what would it be? For me, hands-down, it would be concealer. Whether I’m hiding dark circles or blemishes, concealer is usually the one thing I’ll put on during days when I’m wearing “no makeup.” I’ve tried a ton of different brands, so today I’m rounding up six favorites that I think are totally worth checking out.
I really love all the new formulas that include an eye treatment and cooling effect for de-puffing the undereye area, and the first two on the list look and feel amazing on. (The bareMinerals version is a new discovery and recent favorite because I think it gives the same effect as the Marc Jacobs pen for about half the price.) For a budget find, the CoverGirl Trublend stick is great for on-the-go blemish covering. (I keep it in my bag.) If dark circles are your main concern, I love the “Stroke of Light” from bareMinerals or the Advanced Mineral formula. Both are light-reflecting and actually do brighten the undereye area noticeably. Finally for blemishes, I know there are a bunch of options out there, but (other than trying to go makeup free and never leaving the house) Benefit’s Erase Paste has been my fall-back for years.
If I’ve missed any of your favorites, let me know! Always love hearing about different brands and formulas that readers love. Hope everyone is having a great week!
