Beauty Essentials: Concealer

A while ago, I talked about one of my beauty essentials. Today, I will be sharing with you yet another one of my essentials that I listed as part of my January hits a few posts back. Besides sunblock, one other product I rarely leave home without is concealer. So much so, that I actually stopped putting on liquid foundation because I realised that all I needed day-to-day was concealer and some setting powder. Living in a humid climate made me more conscious about what I put on my face and allowed me to find ways to cut down on layers to let my skin breathe more easily. I have actually noticed an improvement in my skin condition since then, though that could also be attributed to a more dedicated skincare routine that I’ve cultivate through the years.

Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer is an absolute dream. A little bit of product goes a long way, and it feels so light on my skin. Before this, I used to blend out my concealer with a brush because it’s quicker, but I realise that with Naked Skin, I prefer to take my time to blend it in using my fingertips. I find that this method provides the best results and gives me more control over my application. Just in case, I go over everything with a brush to make sure it’s all blended in.

Choosing the right shade is always a problem for me because my skin tone changes very frequently depending on how much time I spend in the sun. I buy a lot of cosmetics online but never concealer/powder/foundation… it’s always better to go straight to the counter and get advice from the salesperson tending to it. I love that Naked Skin blends into my skin wonderfully and doesn’t stand out like a pale patch when I get tanner. I believe it will also work well as a highlight colour, looking at how great it blends.

This is the first time I’m using a concealer with a doe-foot applicator and I’m absolutely loving it! Compared to sticks or roll-on applicators, doe-foot ones offer more precision and control over how much product I want on that particular area. As I mentioned, a little bit of this goes a long way so precise application is key to avoid any caking.

    I’ve heard so many great things about this concealer! It’s firmly on my wish list, I just have to use up a few of my current products first. I’ve never got on with stick concealers & the only roll on I’ve tried is the Maybelline Age Rewind. I completely agree about not being able to get as precise an application. I’m loving the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, I think it’s the best I’ve used so far. The Collection Illuminating Touch is nice too, though less suitable when my under eyes are particularly dark. Xx
