Concealer isn’t about covering up your skin, it’s just about touching up any areas that can cause you to feel less than your most confident, gorgeous self. Concealer is always a part of my makeup kit, both for myself and my clients, and whether it’s covering dark circles or masking a blemish, finding the perfect match can make the world of difference.
One thing to note once you have found the right product for you is to make sure you’re getting the application right. Firstly, don’t use too much concealer under your eyes, as this will look too heavy and instantly age you. Blemishes require a drier, more pigmented product, while a lighter, liquid foundation will be better under the eyes. Make a line of dots in these areas and blend, blend, blend to brighten the area. Now, see which concealers I always carry in my kit…

5 of the Best Concealers
Being involved in the development of products is one of my favourite parts of my job, and this super-light concealer is one of my favourite new products we’ve worked on at Max Factor. With buildable coverage it lasts all day and gives a flawless coverage without looking or feeling heavy.
Great for masking dark circles if you have blue tones, they can be countered by using a peachy coloured concealer like this one on the darkest areas – tap it in with a finger to blend.
This long-lasting concealer gives a soft, velvet matte finish and is great for blending into your foundation for a flawless complexion. I tend to use this over the foundation to mask any imperfections and to lift any darker patches.
Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Concealer has been one of my favourites for years, and you’ll always find it in my kit. I love the lightweight cream formula of this long-lasting product, because it blends so well with your usual foundation.
Working with this full-coverage, creamy stick concealer is really easy. If you have a blemish to conceal or dark circles to lift, just dot on and blend with a brush or fingertip.
