Fine lines, dark circles…under the eyes can be one of the most troublesome areas to camouflage on the face. Here’s a list of my favorite under eye concealers—for whatever eye concern you have!
1. Cle de Peau- at $70 it’s a splurge but it’s worth every penny. Not only does this creamy concealer cover flawlessly with one swipe, it doesn’t settle into fine lines and stays put all day. Though it’s pricey, it lasts forever!
2. Laura Merceir Secret Concealer- looking for a moisturizing conditioner that also covers dark circles? This is a great choice. $22
3. Benefit Cosmetics Erase Paste- this smooth blending concealer not only conceals the toughest of dark circles, but also brightens. $26
4. NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer- this has become my go to day to day concealer. Not quite liquid and not quite a cream, this concealer instantly brightens the under eye area but also provides serious coverage. Also works as a highlighter. $28
Happy Friday! Here’s a roundup of some of the best of beauty this week.
First up is the perfect nude color nail polish from butterLondon called Shandy. You can’t ask for a more perfect peachy beige color that suits all skin tones. Add a single gold stud to each nail to spice up an otherwise neutral mani!
Hair winner of the week? Selena Gomez. She always looks fabulous on the red carpet, but the faux braid hawk she was rocking at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards on Sunday was gorgeous. The braid added the femininity and romance while the faux hawk added edginess.
It’s Chic Week at Sephora! Beauty Insiders can save 15% off all this week. Now is the time to stock up on some of your favorites or try out a pricier item you’ve been eyeing like I did (I purchased a Guerlain bronzer…deets on it in a later post). Ends Sunday 4/21 for Beauty Insiders and Monday 4/22 for VIBS.
Summer makeup should be effortless, but still beautiful. That’s why I love this look that Bobbi Brown created for the Holmes & Yang 2013 Spring fashion show. This nude look is the perfect compliment for the bold and bright colors of spring.
Products used to get the look:
Skin: Hydrating Face Cream ($52)
Eyes: Ballet Pink Long-Wear Cream Shadow ($24), Black Ink Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner ($22), No Smudge Mascara ($24)
Cheeks: Antigua Illuminating Bronzer ($36)
Lips: Bobbi Sheer Lip Color (Sheer Lip Color, Spring ’13, $24)
Rockstar Products: Black Ink Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner, Bobbi Sheer Lip Color
P.S. That hair is everything…perfect for hot summer days or nights.
“We want more, we want more,”…that AT&T commercial has been stuck in my head for the past couple of weeks. That’s how I feel when it comes to anything related to the spring. I keep counting the days until I can wear sandals and flip-flops (probably because it’s getting hard to put on socks and shoes).
The Lavender and Vanilla Collection from Carol’s Daughter is helping feed my spring addiction. The scent is wonderful—light and refreshing. But then there is the Body Cleansing Scrub. Oh that scrub. It got my skin so soft, smooth and glowing after using it in the shower, I’m officially hooked.
The Shea Souffle is super moisturizing, but not heavy where it leaves a residue. And the Dry Oil Mist is perfect for bare shoulders, legs, and arms for sultry summer nights.
Anything this good to my skin I’ll say, yes, we want more.
