I started wearing concealer when studies started to take its toll on me! Concealer was my way of trying to hide the aftermath of an epic night or a late shift from work followed on by an early class/lecture lol! My dark circles are not usually noticeable but if it’s enough for myself to notice then I would definitely try concealing it.
Past experiences I have had when using concealers is that they are either too watery and tend to stay in between your fine lines or they are too thick in consistency making it look cakey under your eyes and making the area a lot more noticeable.
On nights out I wear a concealer with full coverage but on normal days for when I go to work I use a light/medium coverage concealer. I think that I may have found my go to everyday concealer 🙂
A month ago I decided to try out L’oreal Touche Magique True Math Anti-Fatigue Illuminating concealer in colour Warm Beige and ‘wow’ I’m glad that I did! I had purchased two shades, which is what I usually do when I cannot find a concealer that matches my skin tone. One was a lighter shade and the other was a shade darker with a slight pink undertone.
I intended to mix the lighter and darker concealer together to get a shade closer to my skin tone however to my surprise the pink undertone concealer works well on it’s own! It cancels out my dark circles and has a medium coverage with a lightweight feel. It also gives an illuminating affect that brightens up the eye area. Once applied allow the concealer to set for a few seconds and then set it again with a lightweight setting powder. See below a before and after picture.
My before and after shows how well the concealer has worked for me. In the first picture (before) I have done my eyebrows and eyeliner with nothing on my face except from my moisturiser. In the second photo (after) I have used the concealer under my eye area, a few patches around my face to hide my freckles and around my mouth… lastly do not forget the setting powder only under the eye.
