An Amazing Under-Eye Concealer

Hello again and welcome back to our blog!

In this post I decided to write about my current favourite under-eye concealer. I only started using under eye concealers about a year ago and have previously enjoyed the Bobbi Brown Corrector and Concealer Kit, as well as the Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer.

I found that the Bobbi Brown concealer had good coverage and was effective at neutralising my under eye colours, however the product settled into my fine lines and caused creasing which wasn’t good. Then I switched to using the Maybelline Age Rewind concealer for 3-4 months, this product worked really well for me, it didn’t crease under the eyes and had a good consistency. However, maybe the sponge applicator isn’t the most hygenic because once I had a really bad skin reaction to it and I had really inflammed, red, itchy and crusty under eyes which took an entire week to heal up. Therefore I stopped using that product and decided to try a new one and picked up the Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer!

I have been using this product for 2.5 months now and am loving it! I only need a small amount of it and it does a super good job at brightening my eyes. The most amazing thing is that it DOES NOT CREASE! Even after a long day (7.30am – 12am), this concealer stays put and does not budge. The formula is very blendable and the packaging is slim and sleek which is a convenient size for traveling! It is also much more hygienic as it is a squeezy tube dispenser which means its less likely for dirt and bacteria to get stuck inside. Lastly, it is very affordable.

I use a very tiny amount under each eye and I like to gently tap and blend it in with my ring finger. Remember – Less is more! ;)

Afterwards, I like to use this brightening powder from Laura Mercier to set my under eye concealer to make sure the product is locked into place. This brightening powder is also another one of my favourite products. The powder is very fine and helps to further brighten up my eyes. Again, you only need a little bit of product!

I am currently really enjoying this concealer and brightening powder combination! Let me know what concealer you are loving at the moment and I would love to try it out!!!

Happy Monday and I hope you will have a great week ahead! :D

 

Lots of Love,
