My Favorite Drugstore & High-End Concealers!

Bags, dark circles, blemishes, Oh My!

We all at some point have had one or more of these and god knows, it is not cute girl. Whether you have the occasional breakout, acne-prone skin or blueish purple dark circles, concealer is a must-have for any type of makeup look. A good concealer can cover pimples and brighten the under eye to make the most exhausted girl appear awake. Whether you're using two shades lighter to achieve that glam look or for a simple, no makeup makeup look, concealer is important. Anyways, my top picks are tried and true, used on me many times and FYI I do have occasional giant monster-sized pimples & notorious dark circles so concealers are my faaaav part of makeup. 

On to my favorite drugstore & high-end concealers...

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer

This is one of my favorite drugstore concealers of all time! I cannot stress this concealer enough. It comes in a tube with a wand applicator, my favorite. Best applied with each a brush or a Beauty Blender. It is medium coverage and it's formula is super blendable. It hides my dark under eye circles without a problem and does not cake up on me. It can also be used on your blemishes, which it covers up quite well. 
It's perfect for those days that you want a more natural look but still want your dark under eye circles to be covered. It comes in 6 shades, in both yellow and pink undertones. 

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer

Another drugstore concealer that I love and also from Maybelline (they're killing the concealer game!) is the Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer. This is another tried and true concealer that is amazing for covering up dark circles and also blemishes. It has a felt tip applicator which feels soothing when you apply it. This is great for those with under eye bags because of the cold, soothing feeling you receive while applying it. 
It has a smooth, light consistency and it is super blendable. It doesn't cake up on me and does a great job at covering up what I want to be covered. It's the

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer  

Now, on to high-end concealers. Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer was all of the makeup artist's staple product in 2015. It is one of the best concealers out on the market right now and for many reasons. It is medium to high coverage so it is perfect for those girls that are extra concerned with their dark circles. The formula is amazing, super creamy and blendable. You can pack this on a couple times without it getting caked-up underneath the eyes which is perfect. 
They have a great color selection for a wide range of skin colors and undertones. It is also perfect for all around the face as well and it is hard to find a concealer that is great for your face without caking up underneath your eyes,  but the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer manages to be able to do both. 

Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer

The Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer is one of my newest high-end concealer and I've been really digging it. It is comes with a wand that is perfect for applying it underneath your eyes and to blemishes. It's formula is blendable, super creamy and lightweight. It doesn't settle into your fine lines and cake up which always seems to be a problem for me. I was able to pack this on with two coats and it still didn't appear caked up which is important. 
It is medium to full coverage, depending on how much you apply. After oxidation, it appears to become a shade darker so be sure to pick a concealer one to two shades lighter than your natural skin tone.
