I have many products I love, and I look forward to sharing many of these with you. I also want to hear back on your favorites!
To Conceal – keep from sight; hide. Highlight – a light spot or area. Why yes, I do need to do this…don’t you? Use a makeup concealer/highlighter and brightener that is! The one I use tends to be a bit pricey but when we are concealing; you do get what you pay for!
Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat Radiant Touch Concealer is a great product!! It hides, highlights and is easy to apply. You do need to have a color match, so I recommend getting this done at a department store. However, once you know your color, you can order from Amazon, for ease.
This article by Natalie Brown on Buzzfeed, 19 Useful Tips for People Who Suck at Concealer, provides some really helpful tips! I actually changed my routine after reading the article. I now put my foundation on first and then conceal/highlight over my foundation. I also think #13 and #14 work very well depending on the look you are going for.
I found a YouTube video by Wayne Goss featuring the same YSL concealer/highlighter product. Take a look! It's very informative and he says you can get the same look with a less expensive brand.
Lastly, Julyne Derrick of About Style, states that the YSL Touche Eclat is the world’s Most Popular Brightener. Evidently, this product does it all! 1 of these concealers is sold every 20 seconds around the world.
Enjoy and please share any concealer tips you have learned!
