For some parts of my make up routine, there are some staple products that have been on the bill for a very long time – not the stars of the show, but ever present supporting acts that are the ones holding up the whole thing.
The two concealers I want to show my respect for are the Maybelline Anti Age Eraser Eye concealer and the Maybelline Fit Me concealer. *no don’t worry this isn’t an ad, these are the two concealers that have lived in my make up drawers for a very long time!* With concealers, I’d say these are part of your make up routine where if you find the right products for the job, you don’t really chop and change them too much. This is why I’ve found what I like and I’ve stuck to it!
The Maybelline Anti Age Eraser Eye concealer is a little twist up concealer that only costs around £5.99! This is such a bargain and it lasts forever. The shade I use is ‘Nude’ I think, because this is the darkest shade that they do. They only really have three shades, but the one I use it perfect for highlighting and concealing.
This concealer has a little sponge tip applicator – I have heard a lot of people saying that they hate the little sponge applicator saying that it is unhygienic and harbours germs, but I’m not that bothered about the sponge. If anything, it’s only me that uses it so why would it be a problem?! I don’t use the sponge to blend it out, I just use my usual Real Techniques contour brush to gently dab the concealer into a flawless layer.
The thing I liked most about this concealer is that once you have set it with a powder it doesn’t budge. The powder I use is amazing and pretty affordable – it’s the Revlon photo ready powder.
The Maybelline Fit Me in the shade 20 is very good for adding a bit more coverage. I tend to layer these two because the combination makes my concealer last a lot longer and it brightens the area a lot more than just using one on its own. All I need to do with these two is to apply the Eraser Eye concealer via the sponge tip and then smooth over a small amount of the Fit Me concealer, then dab it all out with the contour brush. After this, setting with a light dusting (lol sounds like baking) of the Revlon powder means your concealer will last ALL DAY. WINNING.
What are your favourite concealers?
Happy Easter everyone!
