I had seen this concealer lauded on every beauty platform I lurk in, and I have to agree with the hype. It would cover your blemishes and circles if the dewy cops came knocking. It would absolve your sins if you’d been late to church for a year. It would keep those secrets from your mom when it comes to visit during Thanksgiving. Note before continuing: I would call this a medium coverage concealer because it doesn’t banish <bold>all</bold> bumps and acne scars into another dimension, but it does cover and blend in a natural and yet strong coverage for a $5 concealer. I have peach for dark under eye circles and the light concealer for spots. I put it on and honestly my eyes look so bright it weirded me out. This concealer also layers well. I’m going to be buying this again. So if you see the hype, it’s cause this is so good for a drugstore price!
L.A. GirlHD Pro Concealer
Say hello to my secret to flawless skin! This concealer is my all-time favorite!!! It has solid medium coverage with a satin finish (which explains the “radiant” in the name) and makes my skin look perfected! For a day to day look, I only feel the need to apply it under my eyes. But if I want more coverage, I’ll apply an extra stripe on each of my cheeks and buff it out with a fluffy brush. (There’s probably only 2 days each month that I’ll wear foundation or tinted moisturizer and for the rest of the days, it’s just concealer.) This is perfect for those in-between days when I want a little more than just concealer under the eyes but don’t want a tinted moisturizer all over my face. Definitely check this out in store if you get a chance! It lasts 12+ hours and looks flawless all day!!!
ESTĒE LAUDERDouble Wear Radiant Concealer
you can get this concealer for less than $10 and it works better than most I’ve purchased for $30-$40! I have very dry skin so the hylarunic acid in this formula works wonders for looking smooth under the eyes and not creasing. It also has amazing coverage! #COLOURPOP - Pretty Fresh hyaluronic concealer
COLOURPOPPretty Fresh Hyaluronic ConcealerFor medium-tan skin tones
omg I can’t stop using this concealer guys! For those who know, I have oily skin and holding everything in place is already difficult so getting a lightweight formula that still has coverage and works not only to cover any dark spots but my under eyes is a game changer for me 🤗 So I bought this on sale (FYI I still think it’s in the sale section) and I received this after hearing pretty good things about it (not raved about which tbh I prefer)👍🏽 and the shade seemed too dark to highlight but I still wanted to make it work🤔 I then decided to use this under my eyes as the first step after my foundation to help correct the darkness (learnt this technique from Jackie aina) and I have to say, it’s amazing! 🥰 apply just a small amount under my eyes first and blending that out really helps cancel out the darkness (also this specific shade has a orangeish tinge rather than being too yellow) After blending it, I got in with a brightening concealer and wow oh wow does my under eyes look awake but no longer will the EVER look grey or dark 🙅🏽♀️ I’m in love! Once I set this, I just forget it and I legit have no creasing, it’s THATS good! 🥳 If you guys have been meaning to try any coverfx product, I highly suggest their power play line cause WOW #COVER FX - Power Play Concealer
COVER FXPower Play Concealer
I’ve been organizing and decluttering my collection and it got me thinking what were the complexion products I’ve been picking up the most? 🤔 Here are my top picks: 1. Kosas Revealer Concealer (Tone 7) : this is the most comfortable concealer I have ever worn! As I get older, my under eyes are more sensitive and I need products that are going to keep them nourished 💖 2. Elf Hydrating Camo Concealer (Medium Beige) : instead of color correcting with an actual color correct, I like to use a warm concealer with balance out discoloration. This concealer does that while also keeping my skin hydrated ✨ 3. Undone Beauty Unfoundation Glow Tint (Almond Latte Medium) : this is the only skin tint I have that doesn’t add more oil than I already have, while also being lightweight 🙌🏽 such a beautiful product! 4. Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Hydrating Foundation (320) : If I want to get dolled up (which I haven’t done in a while lol) I want to wear something that will look good on camera but not make me look cake-y... this is the foundation for it 😍 5. Kosas Tinted Face Oil (Tone 7) : this tinted moisturizer surprised me because I thought I was going to look like a shiny, oily egg. Surprisingly it does not! The oils sink into the skin so beautifully like a nighttime face oil and it’s beautiful!
If you’re like me, you’re on a budget. I am paying off student loans and am currently saving for a wedding, so every penny I save helps me with my future goals and paying bills. I know we can’t always afford organic products that are uber expensive, so I am sharing one of my favorite drugstore concealers that actually work. Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Concealer This is a very soft feeling concealer that helps with my little wrinkles around my eyes that I absolutely hate. On top of feeling amazing and looking amazing, it is something I can afford, even being on a budget. It works as well as a designer brand but for much less. You can choose a color that matches your undertones, and it will sit nicely under most foundations. There is a built-in applicator on the tip, which I also love because I don’t have to buy an extra brush for concealer. Neutrogena SkinClearing Blemish Concealer Another one of my favorites because this is a skincare brand that focuses on making products that help your skin not hinder your skin. This will cover all imperfections without clogging them or making them look worse. It will help heal your acne, scars, and any other defects that need healing. This formula has salicylic acid in it that helps your skin heal. Revlon PhotoReady Candid Antioxidant Concealer Lastly is Revlon. A famous line that is in most local drugstores, this brand carries some of the best concealers. I tried this one day in a pinch on the way to a date with my now fiance. I had to cover up a small pimple, and this worked like magic. I stopped in really quick. I applied it directly to my problem area, blended it with my fingers, and then totally disappeared.
MAYBELLINEInstant Anti Age Eraser ConcealerFor dark-deep skin tones
#CherieCreator LAST PICTURE IS ALL THE PRODUCTS ON MY FACE ✨ The Nars Natural Radiant Foundation (Macao) has been amazing for my oily yet dry skin. It’s so lightweight and full coverage. And matches me PERFECTLY! The Milk Makeup Kush mascara is so good! I have no lashes and it makes them so long! Especially on my non existent lower lashes. The Elf hydrating concealer (Tan Neutral) is a really good highlight shade for me it’s bright yet neutral in the best way! (Deep Chestnut) Is more of a corrector for me it cancels out all the darkness on my face. And it’s not too drying :) And last but not least! The Fenty Beauty Powder in Banana is truly a bomb powder! It’s easily replaced my favorite powders.
e.l.f.Hydrating Camo Concealer
So I posted similar to this one with my highlighting shade. These concealers are closer to my skin tone shade. The #e.l.f. - Hydrating Camo Concealer[products]#[FourStars] (color: deep cinnamon) was a STEAL! I got it from Walmart for $6! I saw a lot of rave and reviews about how magical this cheap concealer was so I decided to give it a try. Honestly love this concealer the only negative is, CREASING.I hate for my under eye concealer to crease especially since I have eye wrinkles. Other than that the coverage was full & the consistency was beautiful! The #it Cosmetics - Bye Bye Under Eye( color: deep rich) ) is my HG for under eye concealers ! When I want a basic look (with no highlight) I use this & it covers my under eyes seamlessly & it <bold>DOESN’T CREASE! </bold>The only downside is this concealer is $27 (for the 0.4oz depicted above) or $12 (for 0.11 Oz) , this has lasted me a year and a half .. which is why some of the label has rubbed off. Overall I think #e.l.f. - Hydrating Camo Concealer is a great concealer for my other skin areas such as cheeks and forehead, but #it Cosmetics - Bye Bye Under Eye is my always go to for my under eyes because I care about coverage of dark circles and creasing!

🥑GLOW RECIPE AVOCADO MELT RETINOL SLEEPING MASK
🥑 - GLOW RECIPE AVOCADO MELT RETINOL SLEEPING MASK - 🥑 I purchased this Sleeping Mask from Boxycharm Add-ons because I’ve always wanted to try this brand. I really wanted the Watermelon one but they didn’t have it. BUT you can’t beat the price I paid for it. Lol This cozy, Retinol-Powered Sleeping Mask has Avocado, Matcha, gently smoothing PHA and encapsulated Retinol which is released throughout all hours of the night for skin recovery. This Sleeping Mask is Cruelty Free, Vegan and Free of Harmful Chemicals. - My First Impressions - I have said this before, and I’ll say it again, I’m a sucker for pretty packaging. This Sleeping Mask comes in a cute little glass jar. It’s green because it’s an Avocado 🥑 product. This product makes for great pictures and it’s totally shelf candy. - Scent & Texture - I honestly thought this product was going to smell like Avocados 🥑 but it doesn’t. Kinda let me down but that’s ok. It almost is scent free but it has a very faint fresh scent. The texture is so LUXURIOUS! It’s super thick, like a Balm mixed with a cream. - Effectiveness & Results - I can’t believe how satisfying this Sleeping Mask is to apply! It feels like it just melts into my skin! It doesn’t leave my skin looking and feeling greasy or sticky like other Sleeping Masks do. It isn’t heavy either. It absorbs really fast without leaving any film or residue behind. It moisturizes so well! I apply it before bed, then wake up glowing! My skin looks brighter and lighter. It looks hydrated and healthy. I even like using it as a basic facial moisturizer. It’s light enough for everyday use. At least it is for me. - My Conclusion - I am thoroughly impressed with this Sleeping Mask. It’s super effective and fairy affordable. It is gentle enough for sensitive skin (at least I think so?) I definitely recommend it for any skin type or tone. It would make a great Christmas Gift for all you Hubby’s and Wifeys out there Gift Searching! Thank you for sticking with me on this one! Thank you for reading as well! I hope you all enjoyed this article and this product! Any questions, comments, complaints or suggestions? Let me know in the comments below! UNTIL NEXT TIME LOVELIES.................. 🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑 GLOW RECIPE - Avocado Melt Retinol Sleeping Face Mask

The correct order to apply your skincare
What is the correct order to apply your skincare products? This is one of the questions I get asked the most. With so many products out there, layering your skincare can seem really overwhelming. A general rule to follow is layer your products from thinnest to thickest, and apply your highest percentages of active ingredient products first for maximum absorption. 1. Cleanse- It obvious cleansing is the first step, but it’s important to understand your nighttime double cleanse. In the morning you will want to use a gentle cleanser which will not strip your skin of natural oils. At night, start with the creamy/oil cleanser first. This should be applied to dry skin so the rich texture is able to get your makeup and sunscreen off. Follow with a water based cleanser to get your skin super clean. Some favorites are: FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm DHC - Deep Cleansing Oil CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser 2. Masks- Your treatment masks should always be applied to clean skin. A creamy hydrating mask for dry skin, a clay mask for extremely oily skin, or an exfoliating mask like The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution to solve most skincare issues or just to maintain glowing skin. 3.Toners/Essences- The first of your leave- on skincare. This step is optional. Some swear by it and some skip on it. I absolutely love it and cannot skip this step. I have dry skin and when I apply my essence it feels like quenching my skin’s thirst. It also gives you damp skin for better product absorption for future steps. - Current favorites: BYROE - Bitter Green Essence Toner 4. Serums and Actives- You will want to apply the products with the highest concentration of active ingredients first. This way they are closest to the skin, and absorbed first. In the morning I apply my holy grail vitamin C first. SKINCEUTICALS - C E Ferulic With 15% L-Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C Serum this is also the thinnest of my serums. You want to try your best to go from thinnest to thickest consistency. In the evening, you want to apply your chemical exfoliant (1-2 times a week) followed by the rest of your serums by consistency. 5. Eye Cream- I like to apply my eye cream before my moisturizer to ensure absorption. Depending on your needs and concerns some of my favorite eye creams consist of GLOW RECIPE - Avocado Melt Retinol Eye Sleeping Mask perfect for dark circles, wrinkles and fine lines. 6. Moisturizer- It’s now time to layer on your cream- based products. Here you will also layer in order of consistency. Start with your gel- based cream and top off with your thickest moisturizer. Top it all off with your 7. Face Oil to seal your products in and in the AM with your SPF, the most important step to skincare.
same series of the same brand?NECESSARY🙇🏼♀️
When shampooing hair, the alkaline ingredients in the shampoo will swell the hair, expand the hair scales, and produce rich foam to break down the dirt attached to the hair crevices. After shampooing, the hair will become rough and stiff. The acidic components in the conditioner can neutralize the remaining alkaline components, balance the HP value, and the hair will become soft. But I have been thinking about a question, shampoo and conditioner must be used in a pair? I mean, must it be the same series of the same brand? I recently bought a new set of Bamford products. This is my first time using this brand of hair care products. This brand was born in the UK, and the whole series are made of organic ingredients. The Geranium series I bought also include body oil, hand cream, sleep spray and so on. The smell is a touch of woody fragrance, which I like. Whether it is shampoo or conditioner, it will not feel strange slippery when applied to the hair. Overall, the experience is pretty good. But I decided to separate the same brand’s shampoo and conditioner. I tried BAMFORD's shampoo and KERASTASE repair conditioner. Let me talk about the performance of this mix. 1. Because my scalp is prone to oi, so I care most about is oil control performance. The effect of using the original suit is the same as using the mix product, and the hair starts to have oil after two days. 2. The biggest drawback is that the scent of shampoo and conditioner are inconsistent, causing the hair to product a mixed smell. It's not very comfortable actually. In summary, the main ingredients of the conditioner are the same, and the effects are basically the same. The difference between the non-matching conditioner and the matching conditioner is basically the difference in taste, and will not affect the effect of the product. Therefore, different brands of shampoo and conditioner can also be used, but the matching products will have a better experience in use. bamford - bamford Botanic Shampoo bamford - bamford Botanic Conditioner
