If there’s one mainstay that even disciples of the 'no-makeup makeup' look cling to, it’s concealer. One of any beauty devotee’s most reached-for products, it’s the old faithful that seemingly does the most. Namely, hiding the unwanted dark circles that may come after an all-too-fun night out, covering up sun spots and skin imperfections and disguising the hormonal breakout that frustratingly appears on the same day as a job interview, hot date or wedding (because of course it does).
But not all concealers are created equal. Some are witch green. Some are fiery red. Others range from brightening to luminous, liquid to cream and sheer to full coverage. It’s safe to say there are as many concealers as there are ways to wear it.
