Concealer is the number one product that I never leave the house without. There, I said it. But it’s true – it covers all signs of the what I like to call “I watched way too much Made In Chelsea last night and now I look dead” syndrome, it could cover all blemishes and imperfections and it’s basically the one thing that could give me tons of confidence. I used to buy new concealer every week, trying to find the best one that could help me hide all my skin problems but with the time I actually came to the realization that even if you have the best concealer on the market if you don’t have the right brushes to apply it with you are basically wasting your time. So after a lot of trial and error situations (some of it quite hilarious if I may add) I finally fund the winning duo that works a total treat and makes my skin oh-so-flawless. Let’s talk about those bad boys, shall we…
Real Techniques Detailer Brush // here
Shout out to the best blush for covering blemishes! The tiny size of the Detailer Brush and the fact that it’s rather stiff and pointed makes it perfect for covering small areas on the skin. The brush offers great precision and I like to use my ‘concealer-powder-concealer-powder’ rule with it and it works an absolutely brilliant job at covering the blemish and setting the concealer in place for the day. I always take a minimal amount of product onto the brush and just press (never wipe) it into the skin for best results. The Detailer Brush has synthetic bristles and I find that it works equally well with both cream and liquid concealers, plus it makes everything look as natural as possible and no cakey. What I love about this gem is that it also washes well and dries within seconds, so I can clean it every time before doing my makeup and make sure I don’t disperse any bacteria into the trouble areas. The only bugbear with this brush is that you need to buy the whole RT Core Collection Kit but the rest of the brushes are bloomin’ marvelous as well, so it’s totally worth the splurge. Hello flawless complexion!
Zoeva Concealer Buffer // here
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – I am never applying concealer with my fingers again! Not after I’ve discovered the Concealer Buffer brush and the way it blends my under eye concealer. This medium sized babe is one of the softest brushes that have touched my face and I love how gentle it is on the skin. The bristles are pretty dense, which means that it gives full coverage and it also blends the product so seamlessly into the skin. The Concealer Buffer applies the concealer really evenly with no harsh lines or strokes, which is usually an issue with most brushes. I tend to use it with liquid concealer and under my eyes, around my nose, and on my chin. This brush is what every girl should own really, so don’t forget to pop it to your wish list ladies!
Which is your favorite concealer brush?
Lots of love,
