I truly took getting a decent night’s sleep for granted before having babies. My girls aren’t horrible sleepers but having two babies back to back has taken a toll on a girl – especially, a girl’s skin, especially her under eyes. Thankfully, there’s concealer! I have a dedicated drawer of concealers that I continue to fill.
My skin has changed so much since my first pregnancy. Before kids, I was extremely oily – forever blotting my t-zone and only using oil-free, mattifying make-up products. Post kids, I can’t seem to get enough moisture into my skin! With my skin’s hydration level constantly on the fritz, it’s hard finding the perfect concealer.
Here are six of my all-time favorite high-end and drug store brand concealers for just about every skin type or for anyone like me, with just about every skin concern.
I CAN NOT PUT THIS GUY DOWN. Like I said above, my skin has been a rollercoaster these last two years and no matter what skin crisis I’m going through, I can always count on this little guy to apply and look great. I’ve worn Tarte’s Shape Tape even after having a heavy-duty hydration mask and there was no separation, rolling, or crease settling. I absolutely love this concealer!
This guy was my go-to concealer during my pre-pregnancy sleepless party nights and throughout my most oily pregnancy days. I love the flawless full coverage that the Double Wear line provides and still grab this guy during the warmer, more humid months.
NARS Radiant Creamer Concealer – $30.00
A classic. I love the buildable coverage NARS’ Radiant Creamy Concealer gives and I’m also a huge fan of the newer shades they recently introduced. For the longest, this guy was my favorite wand concealer, but he’s currently in a tight race with Tarte’s Shape Tape.
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind – $6.79
When your girl is extra oily, this is what I grab. I have two shades of these always on my vanity: ‘light’ for everyday concealing, and ‘bright’ for a more bold highlight.
Great for full coverage. Completely covers very dark undereyes, blemishes, or perfect for a poppin’ eyebrow highlight.
For anyone with a lot of texture and/or has trouble finding the perfect shade for their skin tone. This guy is very creamy and gives you a ton of coverage.
