What is your favorite concealer?  Working as a makeup artist I get asked this question a lot.  It’s a question that seems to follow me everywhere in my profession whether I’m at work or not.  Concealer is a makeup crutch that I can’t live without.  I’m a working mom in my thirties with an unpredictable schedule controlled by which production I’m working on this week.  That leads to early call times, late wrap times, and a less than desired sleep routine in between.


 

The right concealer really helps to brighten up the eye area but doesn’t have a cakey appearance.   A long time favorite concealer that is in my pro makeup kit and my personal makeup drawer is Laura Mercier Secret Concealer.  There are several reasons I love this concealer and I think the pictures speak for themselves.  I go from looking exhausted “before” concealer to very well rested “after” concealer.  Laura Mericer’s concealers have the right amount of peach tone to them which is key for counteracting the blue/grey/purple undertones in our under eye area.  This is what everyone refers to as “bags” and the term makes me cringe every time  I hear it.   A common mistake I see people make is using a concealer in a lighter shade than their skin tone in an effort to brighten the eye area.  This doesn’t usually work because you’re not counteracting the blue/grey discoloration.   You’re essentially lightening the area with makeup which can create a lighter grey version of a dark circle.  Some of my clients are a little hesitant when they see the peach toned concealer at first.  Once they see the power of this concealer it’s pretty impressive.  One of the other reasons I love this concealer is it doesn’t accentuate fine lines and wrinkles.  As our skin matures, I think it’s harder to find makeup that has the right amount of coverage yet softens our skin’s appearance.   Laura Mercier Secret Concealer doesn’t settle and move around after a few hours.  It does a great job, stays put, and keeps my eyes looking super refreshed even
