The Best Concealers for Every Need

To conceal or not to conceal: That is the question. In nearly every case, most of us opt to conceal some sort of complexion imperfection. Dark circles under the eyes, ruddiness around the nose, and acne scars stand no chance against a powerful concealer that covers any type of skin concern. At TheBeautyPlace.com, we have a concealer for every need. Here are the best of the best.

For Oily Skin

If your skin is of the slick and shiny variety, you already know how challenging it can be to use any sort of makeup on your face. One of the best is Glo Minerals Camouflage Oil-Free Concealer ($22.99), a hyper-pigmented product in a reliable cream formula. Best applied with a brush, it stays put while reducing the appearance of unwanted marks and hyperpigmentation. It’s also enriched with nourishing vitamins and green tea extract.

For On the Go

Who has time to stand around meticulously applying concealer in the middle of a hectic day? Not you, we suspect, which is why we suggest the Jane Iredale Zap & Hide Blemish Concealer ($19.59) to resolve any of your pesky skin woes. This double-ended concealer is a double threat: It both hides the imperfections you wish to keep under wraps and treats them! It works its magic with a combination of tea tree leaf and lavender oils, both potent anti-blemish ingredients that are gentle and effective.

For Brightening

Dark under eye circles need a boost! The goal is to both cover and reflect light—a job for the marvelously talented Jane Iredale Active Light Undereye Concealer ($18.99). Available in six shades, it doesn’t just cover those stubborn circles. It also highlights the area to brighten and reduce the visible appearance of your most difficult complexion issue. Choose your shade based on your unique need: some neutralize redness, while others eliminate brown discoloration.

For Complete Coverage

Sometimes it’s easier to just apply moisturizer, smack on some concealer, and head out the door. We all have those days when applying a full face is just too much trouble. Yet what if you really need serious coverage? That’s when you turn to bareMinerals bareSkin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer ($18.99). It feels lightweight to the touch—almost like your favorite lotion—but quickly transforms into a high-potency makeup product that works overtime to hide just what you want it to, whether it’s spotty acne marks on the chin or a sallow complexion.

Tutorial Tuesday – Contouring 101

Contouring is a beautiful thing. Contouring & highlighting can make a face with hyperpigmentation, blemishes, and an uneven canvas appear picture-perfect. Below is a highlighting & contouring map.

Starting with a clean canvas, apply your regular foundation as a base. Next, bronze the spots in the first image below. These include your temples, the outer edges of your nose, and beneath your cheekbones down to your jaw line. In order to find the right spot, suck your cheeks into the perfect duck face and start at the indentation. Next, use a highlighter to swipe down the center of your nose, apply in a triangle underneath each eye, and in a triangle between the eyebrows on the forehead. See the picture below for exact placement. The third image shows the combined highlighted & contoured face. Finish with a clean, fluffy blender brush with bronzer to blend it all in. You will be amazed at the transformation!

Get Her Look – Aria Montgomery, Pretty Little Liars

Aria-Montgomery-StyleThe Pretty Liars may not be beautiful on the inside but they sure look good on the outside! We found an outfit we just know little Aria Montgomery would wear. We paired a skin tight Gingam dress with an electric yellow crossbody bag and understated wedges. This number just screams her understated, classy meets sexy style.

Get her beautiful hairstyle with a curling iron and a spritz of lightweight hairspray to hold the curl. Or, use your flat iron to curl the ends with a quick flick of the wrist where you want the curl to start. Full Tutorial Here.

For her angelic makeup, the main focus is on her eyes. Use a matte powder foundation to get a smooth all over look. Apply the three lightest colors in a neutral eyeshadow palette. Full Tutorial Here. Fill in brows with a pencil, and apply eyeliner to the top lid. She has accentuated eyes and baby soft skin making her look sweet, but powerful. Apply under eye liner and blend upwards with a smudgie. Then brush mascara onto curled lashes to make the look even more smoldering. Top the look off with some light pink lip gloss. It’s just a small hint of pink to play up the innocence!

Tutorial Tuesday – Get A Post Pool Flush Without The Sun!

tutorial-tuesday

Planning on taking a Fake-Cation this Summer? Here’s how to look like you spent the last few days relaxing on a lounge chair in Turks & Caicos when you really were stuck in your cubicle!

1. Apply all over loose foundation for light coverage.

2. Lightly brush the spots that the sun would hit naturally hit your face with bronzer. These spots would be across your forehead, down your nose and on your cheeks just beneath your eyes. Think about the spots that burn first when you’re really in the sun!

3. Top off with a little pink blush on the cheeks to get a really “flushed” look.

Be prepared for some jealous stares!

Get Jennifer Lawrence’s Look – Dewy, Glowing Skin!

GTL-Jennifer-Dewy-top

1. Scrub: This may be the most important step! Exfoliate & cleanse. We highly recommend a good exfoliation before attempting this makeup style. This handheld, easy to use brush gives your skin a fresh out of the spa look. 2. Tone: even after a deep cleaning, toning is important. This will eliminate any excess residue & hydrate your skin. 3. Moisturize: Apply an even layer of moisturizer. Dab it on with the pads of your fingertips.

4. Prime: always prime for dewy skin! 5. Base: We suggest a whipped foundation for this step. You want to aim for light to medium coverage. You’ll be applying a lot of layers so airy foundation is key! 6. Conceal: now is your chance to cover up any dark circles, hyperpigmentation, or blemishes. You’ll already have basic coverage with your foundation, so use a light concealer too! 7. Finish: dust a matte finishing powder all over. This will lock the dew in your skin.

8. Blush: Smile big and brush your cheeks lightly in an upward motion. 9. Line: Use black eyeliner to line your upper and lower lid. Then SMUDGE. Pair this with any neutral eyeshadow. Be sure to keep the lines soft, no harshness allowed. 10. Pucker Up: Finish your look off with a nude or light pink lipstick. Keep your lips simple to accentuate your rosy cheeks!
