Are you in the market for a new concealer but don’t want to spend a fortune? We’ve got you covered.
A must-have in anyones makeup bag, concealer can help fake a full nights sleep, cover blemishes and hide dark circles. The most important thing to consider when choosing a new concealer is to make sure you pick the right shade for your skin, which is typically a shade or two lighter than your foundation. This will brighten and highlight, whilst still looking natural.
