Concealers For Summer

Hi

During the winter months I like to wear heavier makeup and heavier duty concealer, I have no idea why but definitely in the summer months I like my makeup to be light and fresh. In the warmer months I don’t wear foundation because I feel it is heavy on my skin, so concealer is usually my best friend. I have choosen my top concealers for the warmer months for under eye concealing, blemishes and to brighten. Most are drugstore because I go through concealer that much I try to find a cheaper alternative to more expensive brands.

 For under eyes my best friend is the Urban Decay Naked Skin weightless complete coverage concealer in fair neutral, this concealer is so light on the skin and actually looks like skin! Not cakey at all. Has never creased under my eyes and is very, very pigmented so a little goes a long way. This can be used to cover blemishes because of the high pigmentation or my favourite way to concealer under eyes, this shade is ever so slightly lighter than my skin tone so it helps brighten too. The Mac Pro Longwear concealer in NW15 is what I would call a cult classic, very heavy duty and covers blemishes like a dream. Has a liquidity consistency but I find on my under eyes it creases so much and looks cakey, but on spots it covers even the reddest of acne and stays put all day. The Seventeen Stay Time 18 hour concealer in EXTRA FAIR has been my spot coverer right now, very light and a pale shade for the drugstore and doesn’t go orange on me. This is great for the under eyes too and doesn’t crease too much but just a bit and also covers blemishes really well. As it’s my skin colour this is perfect for me when hiding spots, does last all day not sure quite 18 hours but long enough. The Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer in 010 ivory is one of my all time favourite drugstore concealers it’s light and has and excellent dewy finish. I love this under my eyes as it gives a light coverage and a fresh finish. Doesn’t tend to crease on me but has little coverage so not so great with blemishes or extemly oily skin as it is dewy. The Loreal lumi concealer in 01 (the one with no writing) I love this one too really highlights your under eyes to give you a more awake look. Has a creamy formula and brightens dark circles nicely, but won’t cover blemishes as it is more for brightening than concealing. The Bourjois Healthy mix concealer in 51 is a good all rounder for concealering, gives a radiant finish so under the eyes look more awake and fresh. Covers blemishes and stays on all day, also doesn’t crease terribly but under the eyes it tends to crease if you have lines there. Lastly the Natural Collection green concealer is a handy green concealer in a lipstick tube that only costs £1 and for me thats great value for money, as it helps get rid of unwanted redness that blemishes have so that your concealer can go on top and not let the redness come through. A green cocnealer is always handy to have in your makeup bag.

    I agree. I usually tend to stick with concealer in the warmer months, I don’t like the feel of heavy makeup in summer. I’d love to try that Rimmel concealer and the Bourjois concealer! Great post. xo

    Great post! I haven’t tried any of these concealers yet but I’ve tried the Rimmel Wake Me Up and Bourjois Healthy Mix foundations so I’d love to try the concealers. I’ve also heard SO much about the UD Naked Skin Concealer and the MAC Pro Longwear so I’d love to try them too! xx

    This is a really cool post, I’m always on the hunt for good affordable concealers. I really like the look of the Bourjois one, never tried it before. I talked about the Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer in my most recent blog post, I’m a massive fan of it, I find that it blends very easily! Thanks for posting xx
