without concealer

with concealer

We all have that one thing that no matter how late we are in the morning we somehow manage to slap it on our face. Mine is concealer....and mascara. I'm always trying out various concealers but this combination is what I've been loving the last few months.

1. Bobbi Brown's Hydrating Eye Cream- I used to think that if I applied a very hydrating eye cream before concealer that it would just turn into a creased mess. Never have I been so wrong. This is such a gorgeous product and makes any concealer glide on like a dream...no more cakey/clingy under eye concealer with this underneath. I'll never be without this.

2. NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer- I have the shade custard and it's slightly lighter than my skin tone (I'm around a NC27ish). It works perfectly under the eye and you can see in the photos above it really brightens the area. I actually didn't like it at first but this + Bobbi Brown's eye cream = concealer love.

3. BeautyBlender Sponge- another thing that has changed the way I apply concealer. It took me forever to break down and buy this sponge...$20 for a sponge...come on now, really!? But honestly, I would buy it 10 times over. I like it that much. Just dampen it and tap away at your concealer with the pointed edge and it blends everything seamlessly.

4. Laura Mercier's Secret Brightening Powder- I have had this for so long...I've even put some in a little pot for my mom and it's still going strong, so you definitely get your moneys worth. You have to be so careful with this because it can dry everything out/accentuate lines you didn't even know you had. Just use the smallest amount to set, take away the tackiness of the concealer and make everything last longer.

That's been my current concealer routine at the moment and I've been loving it.

What are your thoughts?
