Lovely people of the internet,
today I want to share my secret about my favorite drugstore concealer duo. I am blessed, or may I say cursed, with really bad dark circles under my eyes. My doctor says it’s because my skin is too thin and too fair #palegirlproblems So trust me, I tried A LOT of concealers and know what really works and what fades away after an hour and leaves you looking like a heroine chic model from the 90s.
To achieve a somewhat awake look, I first prep my skin with moisturizer and then apply the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Concealer and Treatment (wow that’s a mouthful!). I really like that it comes with a little sponge on top, so you just twist it and the product is easy to apply, even on the go if you need a top up. Also you can remove the tiny sponge (just give it a little tug) and give it a little wash just once in a while to make everything more hygienic! I love it’s creamy but really covering consistency! If I have a lazy makeup day and can’t be bothered to put on the “proper face”, I solely apply this concealer where I need a bit of coverage on my face , brush on a bit of mascara and I’m done! After that I like to apply my foundation or tinted moisturizer of choice and put a layer of the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer on top, just to give it this extra glow. I dab it under my eyes, on the top of my cheekbones, my cupid’s bow, on the bridge of my nose, everywhere where I want to highlight. It goes without saying that I use the lightest shade in both concealers. To set everything, I dust a bit of powder on and I’m done! I haven’t tried any high-end concealers yet, well except for the Mac Prolong Wear –> didn’t like it at all, but I have a couple of them on my what-to-buy-next list, so stay tuned for more reviews… What’s your trick to cover your dark circles? Can you recommend any great concealers? ♥ Disclaimer: I am in no way a makeup artist, this is just what works for me and my skin type!
