Concealer is always a challenge for me, with deep set eyes and super-dark under eye circles, so I’m always in search of the best possible solutions. I recently went into Sephora on a mission and, as usual, I got some wonderful help and advice from the folks at Sephora.

Above are the three products that have joined my “must have” list, from top to bottom:

1. Amazing Concealer by Amazing Cosmetics in “Light Golden.” Using a flat brush, this does an excellent job of covering up those reddish dark circles. It’s not too liquid and not too cakey.

2. Anti-Aging Face Primer by Amazing Cosmetics. Dabbed under the eyes before the concealer is applied, this makes a nice, smooth surface for the concealer – and helps it cling and stay put throughout the day. This has not replaced my Laura Mercier Foundation Primer (my fave for a decade now) which I use all over my face before applying foundation. I only use it under the eyes. 

3. Too Faced Shadow Insurance is a shadow primer that does exactly what it says. I am using eye shadow and eye liner more often now because of this product. When you use this product, the shadow does’t run or crease or change color. You don’t have to think about your shadow until you are ready to remove it at night.

Those are my revealing secrets regarding concealer.
