Many people ask me what beauty item will give them a well rested complexion while camouflaging all their skin imperfections.  My answer is always CONCEALER! It should be a makeup staple in everyone's beauty bag!  Its the number 1 beauty product on the market for such needs.

THE MANY USES OF CONCEALER: 

To hide a blemish or scars, use a high coverage concealer that is demi-matte with no light reflecting particles such as the Tarte double duty shape tape. 

Dark Circles, which is what concealer is mainly used for needs a light to medium but buildable concealer that is hydrating so as to avoid settling into fine lines and looking cakey. Try the Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer, blends like a dream and can be layered without looking heavy, which in turn will make you appear older.

It's best to use a concealer that is 1 to 2 shades lighter than your skin tone.  Best application is with a damp beauty blender .  This application will not only hydrate your skin but push the product deeper into the skin which is the key to a flawless face.  

Here are 5 high end concealers that I use consistently, and of course, their drugstore dupes - so you can achieve the same look on a budget (champagne taste on a canned wine budget, ladies!)
