I never used to wear much concealer because I never had dark circles, bags or discolouration under my eyes at all. Fast forward to getting pregnant and having a baby and now I have bags and dark circles on the daily! I used to use concealer mostly to hide blemishes, but now I use it to brighten under my eyes and provide extra coverage for scars and blemishes. I expect my concealer to cover well, last all day and not crease or look cakey.
One of the first concealers I ever tried was the Maybelline Fit Me concealer. I love the Fit Me line and honestly feel their foundation is holy grail status for me. I like this concealer for natural makeup days when I want to wear some BB Cream and mascara and run out the door. I do not find the Fit Me concealer provides a ton of coverage but enough to brighten my eyes without looking like I have much on.
My newer favourite is Catrice Camouflage concealer. I like that it is waterproof and does not budge all day. It doesn’t crease or look cakey and it blends really well. I find it provides really good coverage and because it lasts so long I like to use it to hide scars and blemishes. It is a drugstore product so its super affordable, although I have yet to see it in any stores in Canada. I originally ordered it online from Ulta and have already reordered it!
My absolute favourite is Tarte Shape Tape. I was originally skeptical of this product because every YouTuber I followed swore by it and I often find YouTubers wear pretty heavy makeup so I wasn’t sure I would like it as much for everyday. I was wrong! I love it. I would use it daily if it wasn’t so expensive but it does come with a lot of product and a little goes a long way. The color range is pretty great for concealer and I find it is long wearing and very full coverage. I find it best for under the eyes, although it does also build to cover blemishes if needed. I highly recommend trying it if you haven’t already! If you want a more detailed review feel free to check out my post tarte shape tape contour concealer – Worth the Hype & Price?
