I have been experimenting more with concealers, and you may be thinking how can you really experiment with something that is full coverage and in a small tube with an applicator? By experimenting I mean with the shades and how you apply it. A long time ago when I first discovered concealer I simply just swept a half circle under my eye and rubbed it in with my ring finger but I chose a shade that was the same colour as my foundation. Yes, it did get rid of the dark circles but it didn't look too great as it did create a deeper depth making it kind of look sunken?

All three of the concealers above I have been applying in the same way as I have found that it works so well. Instead of just applying a half circle under the eye, you want to create a downwards triangle. How you blend it into your skin is entirely up to you, a brush or your finger but I use a damp beauty blender with a dabbing motion and that is my desired look.

As for the shade of concealer I earlier mentioned that I chose a shade that was the same colour as my foundation - kinda wrong. Always go a shade lighter or two, not only do you want to banish those dark circles but you want to lift that under eye and give it dimension.

The concealers that I have been loving are NYX HD Concealer in YellowMaybelline Eraser Eye Concealer and finally MAC Pro Longwear Concealer which you need a tiny amount as it is full coverage and long wearing.

Have you tried these concealers? What are your thoughts?

  1. I've heard really good things about the NYX concealer! I really wanna try that one next

  2. I haven't tried any of these but I do always eye up the Mac Pro Longwear so maybe i'll have to give it a go!x

  3. I love the maybelline eraser eye concealer. I've actually just run out and I'm desperate to buy a new one! -xo

  4. I would love to try the maybelline one. I think it's going to be my next beauty buy.
