Concealer is an important part of any legit makeup kit, and a wonder product designed to give you flawless skin. Essential for covering up dark circles under your eyes, large pores and pigmentation, it should be that little bit thicker than your foundation to cover up your blemishes and blend into your skin tone.
You can use concealer on its own or combine it with foundation for extra coverage. Whether you prefer liquid or powder, it’s crucial to have a few shades in your repertoire – an exact skin match to cover blemishes and discolourations, and one shade lighter to conceal undereye circles.
We’ve scoured the net to bring you some of our favourite concealers on the market right now, with something for everyone. Remember, you should change your concealer every six months to a year so if you’ve been lugging the same old product around with you for a while, it’s time to refresh your kit.
