I've come on a long journey when it comes to concealer; going from the girl that wasn't that fussy to one that has slowly started to get a collection of different concealers for various concerns. I know it can be a little overwhelming to choose one for your skin type, so I'm complied a list on a handful of my favourites.
I have to talk about under-eye concealers first as I know they're all the rage at the moment and we've all seen photographs on when they don't work too well. I think a lot of people bring emphasis to making sure the concealer for under your eyes are super light to brighten and contour, but I think it's best to stick to just a shade half or one below what you usually wear for your foundation. The concealer that comes to mind when I think of under-eyes is the It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye* which says it all with the name really.
If you suffer with blue or purple tones under neath your eyes rather than pile on as much concealer as you can, I would recommend trying out colour correcting instead even if it's just building up the amount you apply before your concealer so that you get used to how much you need.
An all rounder concealer is one of my favourites to own as I love to use them on a day to day basis as they can easily be used to cover redness, banish blemishes and conceal any dark circles you have all in one go. The Too Faced Born This Way Concealer* is my favourite for doing this as it's super easy to blend into your skin and always look seamless which is important when you want creaseless under-eyes and you want to make your blemish cover up look natural. If that one doesn't tickle your fancy then I'm sure the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Away* pick will be as although I'm not a fan of the sponge applicator, the formula and finish makes up for that. It's natural on the skin and conceals everything it needs to around your face.
If you prefer to have a natural coverage concealer; one that will cover any redness that needs to, but can be worn on it's own if needs be, then the Glossier Stretch Concealer is the one for you. For me, I think it's important that it doesn't appear too dewy or glossy on the skin as this takes away from the overall look and performance.
For just banish the appearance of spots I would recommend the Nars Soft Matte Concealer. It took me a while to warm to this as I was trying to use it all over my face, but once I realised it works as a top up throughout the day or to cover up any blemishes I have - I started to love it. You need the smallest amount at the end of your Beauty Blender to blend this into your complexion in seconds.
