Top 5 Concealers That Will Get YOUR Makeup Skills from Amateur to Pro!

In this blog post, I am going to break down my TOP 5 concealers, I believe that are ideal for ALL skin types. The variety of products and brands I have chosen are ones I continue to use and will continue to range in my personal and professional makeup kit. They all vary in price, texture, coverage and application methods.

Of course, this is just my opinion as a professional freelancer, and depending on your wants and needs, your views may differ to mine.

Being a Professional Freelance Makeup Artist for over five years now, and having worked for one of Australia’s leading beauty destinations, Mecca Brands, I have had my fair share of exposure to many things, including products, environments in which they’re worn as well as 100’s of customers and clients alike.

With this list comes trial and trust me, a lot of errors with application, but just because I am a makeup artist, doesn’t mean I have had a perfect understanding in how to use and apply products the whole time I’ve used makeup in my personal life. This also extends to my professional career, more so when I started working for Mecca and studying makeup, just like any industry, comes learning and education behind about why and how to use certain products. What does and doesn't work well together. As the old saying goes, you can’t mix oil with water.

I have included the rough full price in AUD $ as part of my list, as well as websites and stores where you can buy these products and try them for yourself.

Number #1 NARS Soft Matte Concealer

Let’s start with my favourite, hands down, rain, hail or shine which is the NARS Soft Matte Concealer

This concealer is:

. Full coverage but super light in texture

. Literally blurs and smooths lines with minimal application

. Sits well on all skin types and texture

. Colour corrects dark circles, breakouts and hyper pigmentation with extreme ease instantly

. Made with hyaluronic acid to plump and smooth the skin

. Full of vitamin rich ingredients

. This fights against free-radical stressors in day to day pollution from the air we walk and breathe

. Oil, Paraben, Sulphate and Alcohol free

How amazing is it knowing when you’re wearing products its literally looking after and defending your skin too.

You can buy this concealer in store or online at Mecca. It currently retails for $48.00aud

Number #2 Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer

My second favourite concealer, which is more affordable, is the

Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer

This concealer is infused with Goji Berry and Haloxyl, which basically means it will aid in delivering coverage to hide pigmentation, like dark circles and discolouration, as well as brighten the under eye area.

This concealer is

. Super lightweight

. Full coverage

. Extremely affordable

. Blends easily

. Suitable for all skin types

. Long-wearing

A little bit really does go a long way with this concealer!

You can buy online or in-store at Woolworths, Coles, Priceline or my personal favourite, Chemist Warehouse as their brands and product lines constantly go on rotation with weekly specials and sales through-out their stores.

Full retail value is $19.95aud of this product, but you can get it as cheap as $10.00aud at times, talk about value for money!

Number #3 Kryolan Concealer Wheel

Now this next product, though anyone can use it, comes with a little more understanding of colour theory, specifically colour correcting theories.

A cult classic amongst professional makeup artists, it is the Kryolan Concealer Wheel

This concealer wheel is:

. Packed FULL of pigment

. Long-wearing

. Rich and creamy in texture

. 6 adaptive colours to conceal, tone and highlight

. Easily camouflages discolouration and blemishes

. Easily blended and workable underneath or on top of any product

You can buy this concealer wheel in-store at Kryolan in Melbourne and Sydney, as well online at Kryolan:

and Adore Beauty:

It retails for $72.00aud which may sound expensive, but you’re getting 6 colours in one. The concentration of product and pigment means a little bit goes a long way with this product, so it’s well worth the investment.

Number #4 NARS Creamy Concealer

My next concealer, another cult classic amongst the beauty world is the NARS Creamy Concealer.

This concealer is:

. Full coverage

. Radiant and glowing in it’s appearance

. Brightens and colour corrects the under eyes

. Infused with hydration and light-diffusing properties to plump and firm the skin

Number #5 BareMinerals bareSkin Complete Coverage Concealer

And last, but no means, least favourite, as it’s still an amazing product, and also a little bit of a tongue twister, is the BareMinerals bareSkin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer

This concealer is:

. Extremely light-weight and thin

. Medium to buildable coverage

. Luminous finish

. Enriched with anti-ageing serum to combat those pesky fine lines and crows feet

. Infused with colour corrective undertones to camouflage discolouration

. Live with hydration properties to counteract free radical and environmental pollution

This concealer is also Paraben, Sulphate and Chemical sunscreen free, as well as a lot of other tongue twisting nasties that can be in other products, so basically means, for my sensitive skin gals and guys, this is one for you!

It currently retails for $38.00aud

If you haven’t gathered by now, I am extremely passionate about quality and innovative product when it comes to choosing makeup. You wear it all day on your face, so why not invest in something you know will look after it too?

You future self will thank you for choosing to use quality and enriched product.

So there you have it, my top 5 concealer list.

Thank you for reading through to the end, you’re a champion and deserve a glass of bubbles for enduring, I say in wit! But really, thank you for taking the time out of your day to read this blog and I hope the passion I have for quality and great product reflects in my dialogue to you, as the reader and consumer.

Until my next post! - Aylce
