8 Of The BEST Concealers For
Here at BASE, we’ve been thinking a lot about concealers. Well, ways to mask lack of sleep to be more accurate – caused, mainly by the recent heatwave. And whilst 8 hours sleep and keeping your body and skin hydrated along with a healthy diet and a good skincare routine are the best ways to achieve a bright, youthful visage, all of this takes time and sometimes, like now, you just need a quick fix. That’s where concealers come in, used correctly this little miracle product can hide a multitude of sins from dark circles and annoying blemishes to uneven skin tone. The right concealer can make all of these things disappear and give you a seamless, flawless coverage.
But like most things worth having it’s not as simple as just picking up a concealer and hoping for the best, it’s complicated, just as complicated as finding the right foundations. There are shades, undertones and textures to factor in. Thankfully gone are the days of cakey chalky formulas, and in their place an abundance of new options suitable for all skin tones and texture preferences. The New Gen of concealers are multi-tasking and some also incorporate skin nourishing ingredients to help treat your skin.
