Concealer – Day 20 of the 30 Days of Beauty Challenge

Screen Shot 2015-07-01 at 18.13.00For Day 20 of the #30DaysOfBeautyChallenge here are my favourite concealers.

As you can see, some shades are too dark for me and you’ve probably guessed it, I use these shades for contouring. For the longest time, I used to use the Mac Studio Fix in NW35 to warm up my face/ contour with. It’s a good product and well loved (you can’t see the gaping hole in it from the photo) and I still haven’t hit pan on it. I like applying this with a flat foundation brush then I blend it out with my real techniques Miracle Sponge.

Recently I tried the LA Girl Pro Concealer and I decided to try out the shade Beautiful Bronze for contour. It works remarkably well and I love it. I find this more handy to use than my Mac concealer because it has a brush applicator and I don’t need a separate brush for it.  A little of this product goes a long way and I found that this doesn’t blend as easily with a brush. I used it in a recent youtube tutorial that I did where I heavily bronzed my face for a J.Lo glow, you can check it out here 🙂

Next is my trusty Mac Pro Longwear Concealer in NW20. I’ve raved about this product before and long story short, it’s my holy grail concealer but I hate the packaging.

I tried replacing my Mac Pro Longwear Concealer with the LA Girl concealers since some people on social media suggest that they’re a dupe. I love the coverage and the finish, however I find that the wear is incomparable to the Mac Pro Longwear. The other downside of the LA Girl Pro Concealer is the colour selection, I haven’t found the exact shade that I’m happy with. I use the colour Light Ivory for highlighting (when I’m being fancy) and the shade Natural for my under eyes and to cover blemishes. The shade Natural is slightly too light for me so I find that it highlights my blemishes just a little bit while my Mac Pro Longwear matches me perfectly.

I hope you enjoyed this post 🙂
