Today’s career girls are pretty busy having it all: the perfect job and the next promotion, whilst still having lots of friends, hobbies and fun. However, getting that promotion and maintaining this busy lifestyle might require spending more time at work and socialising, and less time in bed. Whilst long term sleep deprivation is an issue for ageing skin, from time to time we all need a little bit of concealer to still look great after a short night of sleep. This is why we decided to list the five best concealers for every skin concern and need, making you look radiant before and after an important deadline.
YSL Touche Eclat
The YSL concealer is a classic that many makeup artists swear by. It has a rather light consistency and is often also used as a luminizer. This little multi-talented tool is quite expensive but lasts forever and gives you a healthy radiance. One special tip is to also use it on the cheeks and a draw a fine line on the bridge of your nose to make it appear slimmer (giving you a perfect glow).
MAC Studio finish SPF 35 Concealer
Sun protection is a major factor in the anti-ageing game and we love the fact that MAC equipped their best-selling concealer with some serious SPF. That, plus the fact that there are many shades for every type of skin colour, makes this one a favourite product. Like always with MAC, there are so many people who swear it’s the best product they have ever used, and we wouldn’t want to dispute that.
Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics
This creamy concealer truly is a camouflage powerhouse! Its consistency allows it to cover up dark spots and redness whilst leaving a dewy, semi-shiny finish, different to the matte mask that most concealers leave on skin. This concealer is especially great for blemish-prone skin as it does not clog up the pores and contains some hydrating aloe leaf extract. This one is a favourite of The Trophy girls and we recommend you pat it in on your skin.
Diorskin Nude Concealer
This concealer is half make up, half skin care. With 35% mineral water, it helps to hydrate the skin which in return increases reflection and radiance. This is especially great for dryer skin. Using a special kind of nude glow pigment to prevent a dull complexion and a mask-like effect, this Dior concealer feels more like a luxury eye cream.
L’Oreal True Match concealer
The L’Oreal True Match concealer might be a budget buy but it became the favourite concealer of many beauty bloggers and consistently scores high reviews. This might be due to the good coverage that lasts an entire business day, the various shades, or simply the fact that you’re worth it.
