I have a ton of redness, discoloration, and acne marks that haven’t quite faded so concealer is my best friend. I have been using the Bare Minerals Flawless Complexion Conceal & Finish Compact for the last few weeks and I have deemed it my new favorite all around concealer. Some concealers are targeted for certain areas so when I find a good all around concealer (one that can cover a blemish and dark circles under the eye) I think it is something truly noteworthy. For it to fall into that category it needs to be quite pigmented, creamy yet have really good staying power without settling into find lines and wrinkles. It is a tall order to fill, for sure.
The packaging on this is really pretty fantastic. It is a zip-up compact that holds the concealer and powder with a brush and a poof for application. I often need to touch up my concealer throughout the day so I love that this is so travel friendly and doesn’t need any extra pieces, a separate brush or something like that, to be able to use it.
As you can see, the concealer is really creamy and the powder is translucent, which makes it super easy to wear. The powder is also really fine so it is almost undetectable on the skin.
I am going to show you how I conceal my crazy redness around my eyes. It doesn’t matter if I get a full 8 hours of sleep or 3 hours of sleep, I will always wake up with this weird redness and discoloration all around my eyes. It is irritating, but thankfully concealable.
So, all I do is take the brush and draw a triangle shape starting just under my eye and take it down to around the bottom of my nose. I blend it in with my fingertips. I find that it is important to use my hands because the warmth of my fingertips warms up the product and thins it out a bit, making it easier to spread. Also be very gentle with the skin under your eyes.
I then take the little poof and apply the translucent powder over top the concealer to set it. Setting concealer is often skipped over by many, but if I want it to last all day, then I absolutely have to use a powder.
I am in love with the Bare Minerals Flawless Complexion Conceal & Finish Compact, which is exclusively available at QVC for now. Tell me in the comments below: What is your problem area that you always need to conceal?
