Natural Looking Concealer Application Tips & Tricks
The best concealer application makes you look awake, brightened up, and doesn’t age you by settling into your creases! Since I truly believe the magic is in the application, the concealer you have is probably just fine. That said, I really love the Kosas Revealer Concealer because is nourishing to the under eyes and the formula dries down nicely while still looking like skin! Kosas products are formulated without fragrance, talc, parabens, and dimethicone/cyclic silicon’s just to name a few. They are also cruelty-free. My skin tone is fair, and my skin type is normal to dry. I like to use my concealer for the occasional blemish and to brighten up my under eyes but the tips below are still applicable for wherever you might apply your concealer. For flawless concealer application: 1. Don’t apply too much product. I try not to apply the product directly to my face but instead to the back of my hand. 2. You could use your finger to tap a teeny bit of the product on the desired areas but using a Real Techniques beauty sponge to thin the product out on the back of my hand first (by blotting), then apply to the face delivers best results and is much faster. 3. Avoid applying directly under your eyes, smile lines, forehead wrinkles, etc. If you MUST have concealer on one of these “creasy” spots, go light. 4. Set it! Use a good setting powder to set immediately. For those areas like under my eyes where I want to conceal (even knowing I have wrinkles there) I use a setting powder to avoid creasing. I love the Aisling Organic Rice Setting Powder. Since its translucent it will work on most skin tones. It goes on light and I love the blurring properties it has.

No Makeup Makeup in under 10 Minutes
These are my go-to products that I can quickly swipe on my face in under 10 minutes and feel put together. ULTRA VIOLETTE - Lean Screen SPF 50+ Mattifying Zinc This is UV newest sunscreen in their lineup. It is a mineral sunscreen which appears to be slightly tinted but ends up just looking like you have this wonderful blurring filter on the face. Perfect for my No makeup makeup days. Although I have dry skin, I don’t find this drying at all! I’ve taken a star off because I still do prefer glowy sunscreens but I think I’m going to love this in summer. CHANEL - BAUME ESSENTIEL Multi-Use Glow Stick After applying sunscreen, I apply this to the peaks of my face. Applying products on top of this gives me the most beautiful lit from within glow and I love this product because it’s just pure DEW with no sparkles or metallic finish Kosas - Revealer Super Creamy + Brightening Concealer A hydrating, a natural finish concealer which had yellow undertones that helps cancel out any redness around my eyes and blemishes. This is my ideal concealer, not too heavy or cakey but super brightening! A holy grail for sure. CHANEL - Healthy Glow Bronzing Cream Gives you the perfect “I just got back from vacation” effortless glow. I love this because it is just so easy to apply and blend out. I’ve taken off a star because it’s not inclusive, I wish they would expand the shade range! ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Micro-Stroking Detailing Brow Pen The newest brow pen in my collection. It’s very pigmented and allows you to draw natural looking hair like strokes. I’ve only rated it three stars because I find due to how pigmented it is, it can be a struggle to get thin strokes and the brush could be thinner as well. Glossier. - Boy Brow A classic for a reason! The perfect product for fluffy, natural brows. This is my holy grail! I have very coarse brows and this holds them in place like no other. I use the shade “clear” ILIA - Limitless Lash Mascara the peeerfect mascara for a busy day because it never smudges or transfers so I don’t have to worry about checking for panda eyes. In addition it gives me the most beautiful fluttery lashes, a new holy grail for sure! Kosas - Wet Lip Oil Gloss A holy grail lip product because it feels like a balm but gives me the “my lips but better” look. It’s the perfect gloss because it is so easy to reach for and apply without even needing a mirror. I’m using shade “Dip” #CheriePartner

Glossier Stretch Concealer
I have not used a concealer in a while because I try to avoid the “too much” makeup look. I usually gravitate towards a lighter makeup look, but when I saw this bundled with Glossier’s Skin Tint I decided to give concealer another chance. I was very pleasantly surprised by this concealer! My favorite thing about it is that I can wear it alone to cover my dark circles or blemishes without having to put on a full face of makeup with it. It blends very easily into skin and does not leave a distinct line. It also lasts very well and never gets cakey or creasey. The packaging is very nice and looks good on my vanity. I would definitely recommend this concealer!!Glossier. - Stretch Concealer
Orange corrector that actually works
There are so many different orange correctors I’ve tried, literally so many. The most expensive one was $50 and it did nothing like nothing. Im not sure why I had this mindset that expensive products are better. Then I finally decided to buy this $5 orange corrector and omg it changed my whole makeup routine. It covers my dark circles so nicely, its good to blend. You just have to be very careful on how much you apply. If you apply too much the orange would show even after you apply your concealer and foundation. Overall if you’re looking for a cheap orange corrector, this is what you need

Favorite Concealer - KAJA BEAUTY
KAJA Don’t Settle Concealer in 03 Mooncake WHAT IT IS? Light-to-medium coverage creaseless concealer PRODUCT TARGET CONCERNS: For those looking for natural, medium coverage. TEXTURE/CONSISTENCY: Liquid formula OVERALL THOUGHTS: This is my favorite concealer right now. Creamy concealers tend to crease on me as I have dry skin so I love concealers with liquid formula. It doesn’t crease, it can be built up to medium coverage without looking cakey and looks very natural. I sooooo love this concealer!! WHY I LIKE/DISLIKE IT: I like the liquid formula and the natural finish it provides. WOULD I RECOMMEND IT ? Yes, if you like natural looking concealers. IS IT WORTH IT? 0.21 oz / 6g/ $19 One of the cheaper concealers that you can find in Sephora. To me it’s definitely worth it. Would buy it again and again even for a full price.
Kaja-Don't Settle Concealer
This concealer is a dream! The texture is so creamy and smooth and it has a really nice light/medium coverage. I use it under my eyes and for blemishes when my skin is dry and it looks amazing! I absolutely love the formula and the packaging! I would definitely recommend it. 10/10Glossier. - Stretch Concealer
Hello 👋🏾 Thought I’d share here my first texture Tuesday. It was fun to do it ! About the products : I just recently changed my NARS for the tarte and I don’t regret it at all. I would add that I prefer the glossier serum since they changed their formula , felt my skin was left dry when I used the first version of it and didn’t like it, but now it’s way better !
