4 Of The Best Concealers That Actually Deliver

Hey Lovelies!

I don’t know about you but I’m so tired of getting excited about trying new concealers only to discover they just don’t stand up to the job. We want concealers to do what they promise – conceal. We want concealers that make our skin look better – not cakey, older or patchy (even when we’ve spent more than long enough blending). I quite like some Rimmel products, but I found their “Hide The Blemish” concealer to be a huge fail.

Check out the best concealers around (and the best prices) that actually deliver true coverage and will improve your appearance!

1.Max Factor Pan Stik, £7.18, www.amazon.co.uk

This has to be one of my all-time favourite concealers. It instantly provides superior, yet natural coverage for pretty much every skin concern. The lightweight formula blends easily and lasts as long as your foundation (unlike the useless twist pen stick concealers), it is excellent value for money. I always come back to this concealer (for good reason). #happydays.

2.Nars Soft Matte Complete Concealer, £20.40 (Was £24), www.debenhams.com

Nars is an awesome brand and their Soft Matte Concealer offers exceptional results. Achieving a natural yet full coverage, this product is lightweight and blends seamlessly. Whether you need to cover up dark circles (who doesn’t?), acne, blemishes, pigmentation or redness – the concealer will be like a complexion’s super hero. With its light-diffusing capabilities to blur and combining an array of proven skin-nourishing ingredients, this formula ensures your complexion will be nothing short of radiant. Furthermore, it is available in almost every shade you can think of.

This is another concealer that ticks all the boxes. The Naked Skin Concealer provides coverage that is easily buildable, whilst guaranteeing a full and even coverage of which glides on seamlessly. Including incredible ingredients such as Japanese green tea (to diminish the appearance of lines), Matrixyl 3000 and Litchiderm (to enhance collagen production and protect), this concealer literally transforms the look of your skin. Yay!

4.MAC Pro Longwear Concealer, £18.50 (9ml), www.maccosmetics.co.uk

You didn’t think I could discuss great makeup without mentioning MAC, did you? Of course not. I hate concealers that (even when you use a setting spray) seem to either disappear completely, or stubbornly remain in unattractive vague patches on your face. Behold MAC’s Pro Longwear Concealer. The lightweight product feels amazing, is lightweight whilst simultaneously achieving excellent coverage and has serious staying power. I love this!

Make sure you remain stunning all evening by equipping yourself with the best finishing powders around. Here are some truly exceptional finishing powders that actually deliver outstanding results.

Should you be searching for a finishing powder that provides a little bit of extra coverage, opt for the Flawless Finish by Charlotte Tilbury. This super-luxurious powder offers some seriously seamless application and keeps your complexion appearing blemish and shine-free (HUGE plus). Combined are soft-focus micro powders and light-reflecting ingredients. The result is a gorgeous matte finish (but not too much) on seemingly flawless skin. The best bit – it will last longer than Cinderella’s pumpkin coach (phew, as there is no way we want to be checking out at midnight, right?).

The majority of us want a no-filter-needed complexion without it looking so thick you could blend in with the travelling circus. Let’s be honest, the overdone look is never great. Although a tad pricey, La Mer’s Pressed Powder should be considered an investment and for me, it’s totally worth it (Too. Many. Pores). Non-cakey, lightweight and great coverage – La Mer achieves a youthful matte finish whilst greatly reducing the appearance of unsightly pores. Thank God it’s Christmas.

3.For Creating Perfect Selfies: Wunder2 Perfect Selfie HD Photo Finishing Powder, £19.95, www.wunder2.co.uk

There’s no need to Photoshop your selfies when you have this little gem in your bag. The Wunder2 Perfect Selfie powder is a translucent product of which combines a blend of high -performance perfecting powders that blur away imperfections, creating a beautiful, soft-focus finish (without caking). Yay!. This is an amazing product and works well in achieving a natural looking, selfie-ready complexion.

4.For Radiance And A Good Riddance To Imperfections: Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder, £42, www.spacenk.com

After hearing so many people rave about this product I was literally tripping over myself to try it – and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!

For me, setting powders tend to cake and I prefer to have a great setting spray and finishing powder instead. Hourglass is pretty genius as they consider how much different light impacts our look. Hourglass offer products that work the various lighting situations. Providing 6 shades that mimic 6 light sources (from harsh mornings to candlelight), their innovative formula contains ultra-fine pearl particles that effectively manipulate and filters light, whilst eliminating any evidence of imperfections. This finishing powder is like having my own secret super-power On My Face!
