Pretty much on a weekly basis, I receive messages asking about the best products to conceal acne. I witness firsthand how stressful it can be for those suffering to feel like their skin is the constant centre of attention.
Concealer is the one makeup item that many of us probably couldn’t live without. It would definitely be my personal number one beauty thing I’d take to a desert island. The best multi-purpose options can fix a multitude of sins; from dark under eye circles and hyperpigmentation to thread veins and spots.
Problematic skin can be devastating for some people and there are many of us that spend many a waking hour worrying about how to improve it or at the very least, conceal it. This is when I thank the powers that be for makeup. It can have truly transformative effects, not only on a person’s appearance, but I would go as far as to say on their life too.
With all the formulations, finishes and colour options out there, foundation is one of the hardest products to get right. It forms the basis of any makeup look and it’s pretty much unavoidable- so when you get it wrong, it literally ruins everything. A staggering 58% of women test foundation on the back of their hand, where the skin is a completely different colour to the face. Add to that the hideous neon lighting in most department stores and you get a recipe for a makeup matching disaster.
