The 5 Best Concealers

Finding the perfect concealer is like finding the perfect man- you never know when you’re going to find it, and when you do, you hold onto it for life!

After trying out almost every concealer known to man, I’ve narrowed my favorites down to just 5!  Here they are in no particular order…

Eve Pearl Salmon Concealer

This concealer is best for under the eyes as it has a gel-like consistency.  It doesn’t cake up, yet is pigmented enough to cover the darkest of undereye circles.  (The color I have is “tan”)  I apply this under my foundation in a thin layer (watch my Flawless Face Video to see how I apply it)

Price: $35

Where to Buy: (Makeup Geek Store)

Peter Thomas Roth Un Wrinkle Concealer

This concealer is great for brightening up the undereye area! It is super smooth, doesn’t cake up, yet covers really well.  Since it doesn’t have that orange/peach color like the Eve Pearl Concealer, it is best applied on top of the foundation just for that extra coverage.  If you want to hide blueness under the eyes, go with the Eve Pearl  (I use both this and the Salmon Concealer for under the eyes)

Price: $35

Where to Buy: Amazon or eBay

MAC Studio Finish Concealer

This concealer is best for blemishes as it has a thick consistency and covers well.  I don’t recommend using this under the eyes as it will tend to look cakey.  The trick for this one is to apply a little at a time in thin layers.

Price: $16.50

Where to Buy: MAC or  Amazon or eBay

Make Up For Ever Camouflage Cream

This is another great concealer for hiding those blemishes!  The consistency is similar to the MAC one but isn’t quite as thick.  I used to use this under the eyes, but I find that it can cake up as it doesn’t have the gel like consistency.   But if you need a good concealer for blemishes or scars, this one is great!

Price: up to $36

*It seems that Sephora only carries the camouflage palette which is $36.  MUFE does sell the single pots which are cheaper- you can call the MUFE store in NYC

Where to Buy: Amazon or  Sephora or  eBay

Coastal Scents Camo Quad

This is a great inexpensive concealer that covers well and doesn’t feel cakey.  The 4 colors are great if you want to custom blend to get the perfect match for your skin.

Price: $7.95

Where to Buy: Coastal Scents
