Friday Favorites: Concealer

Let’s talk concealer. There were times when I used to rely heavily on concealer because my face was always broken out and it was a huge mess.  I felt like I was covering my entire face in concealer because my skin was so bad. Now, my skin is totally clear thanks to my Rodan + Fields Unblemish Regimen, so I don’t really need concealer that much anymore.  I do, however, still like to use it under my eyes.  It just seems to brighten them and make them pop a little more. It isn’t that I have really bad circles or anything to cover up; I just think that it enhances your eyes.  Anyway, I discovered a new concealer that I love a few months ago and wanted to share it with you because it is so easy to use and it provides great coverage.  I am now obsessed with e.l.f Cosmetics’ Lightweight Concealer Stick.  You can find it at Target (not online), Walmart, Ulta, Walgreens or any other store that carries e.l.f. Cosmetics.  The shade I use is Fair/Light, but it also comes in Light/Medium and Medium Dark.  I like for it to be almost a shade lighter than my foundation because I want it to serve as a highlighter for my eyes.    I typically apply my Rodan + Fields Radient Defense Perfecting Liquid first and let it dry while I apply my eye shadow and liner. Then I apply the concealer.  I do this by making an inverted triangle under my eyes. With this stick it is just like drawing on your face.  It’s so easy and mess free. Then I typically just use my ring finger to blend it in, but you can use a blending bud or brush if you prefer.  Once it is all blended in, I add a little powder to set it, and I am ready to go.  

Apply by drawing an inverted triangle under your eyes.
Blend using your finger, blending bud, or blending brush.

As you can see in the last picture, the skin under my eyes now looks brighter and it just helps to accentuate my eyes. I love it! They do have a highlighting stick that looks just the same, but it is more iridescent than I like for under my eyes. I actually like to use it on my upper cheekbone line for a little sparkle when I am going out but not for everyday use.
