How to Find the Right Shade of Concealer
First things first: it’s important to know that you might need more than one concealer. These definitely aren't 'one-size-fits-all' makeup products.
The area under your eyes is different to the rest of your face. Dark spots need different coverage than red spots. Ultimately, concealers are personalised products, so you have to think about your goals and needs.
While under-eye concealer should be lighter than your natural skin tone (or red-orange if you're colour-correcting), you want your all-over concealer to match your skin colour as closely as possible.
Ready to start shopping? Here are a few of our favourite products:
Covering Hyper-Pigmentation: Maybelline Master Camo Colour Correcting Pen in Red banishes shadows by counteracting dark and ashy tones.
Covering dark circles: Jane Iredale Active Light Under-Eye Concealer transforms tired eyes.
Covering blemishes: To clear and prevent blemishes, you'll love oil-free Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions Clearing Concealer. This gentle and soothing formula covers even the reddest spots.
All-over, waterproof coverage: Estée Lauder Double Wear Waterproof All Day Extreme Concealer is one of the most versatile picks. If you're going to be working up a sweat or getting your face wet, you'll be blown away by how powerful this stuff is.
PRO TIP: Your skin changes all the time! Winter skin is paler and drier. And in the summer, even if you don’t go tanning (and you shouldn’t!), your skin will naturally get darker. It’s a good idea to adjust your concealer colours and formulas seasonally for best results.
