There’s just no denying that our under eyes can feel like our worst enemies (the Hans if you like) when you’ve been lacking of a good nights sleep.
Thankfully our kingdoms have been blessed with concealers that are not only effective in camouflaging these dreaded dark circles but are also affordable, meaning you don’t need to be a member of Arendelle’s royal family to pick some up.
If you need more than a tinted moisturiser in the mornings and you can’t rely on a freak snowstorm to stop you from leaving your palace, give some of these high-street concealers a go.
L’Oreal Paris Infallible More Than A Concealer
My current go-to for the days of “why does it look like I haven’t slept in a year?!” This is more than a concealer but a trusted sidekick that I know will get me through the day without someone so much as muttering the words “late night?”
Is it really more than a concealer?
Well, in a word YES. Dark circles, blemishes and any other imperfections in between don’t stand a chance when it comes to this full (and I mean full) coverage concealer.
I personally love a larger doe foot for ultimate application ease and it’s incredibly easy to blend. And due to the larger applicator, you only need one swipe for maximum coverage.
And if you’re thinking that the coverage sounds a little daunting for a concealer, be assured that this queen-worthy product doesn’t feel cakey and dries down to a natural matte finish.
This *must have concealer comes in 25 shades and it really is worth melting for… if you catch my drift.
Bourjois Radiance Reveal Concealer
For the first time in forever (read that without breaking into song) I wanted a concealer that had a subtle glow to it. You know, a little flurry of health that made me look not only awake but totally fresh and ready to take on the day ahead, especially during the Winter months when my skins looking a little dull.
I would love to say that the cold never bothered me anyway, but it totally did and still does.
Luckily for these dreadfully cold moments, the *Bourjois Radiance Reveal Concealer is a great help and the perfect size to slip into your handbag without a care.
Now, this concealer is only available in 3 shades but it’s pros certainly outrank this issue for me. The formula is very light and delicate on the skin whilst still being able to cover dark areas with a couple of swipes.
Of course, the finish isn’t an “in your face” matte but more of a soft natural texture with a healthy sheen. This is the concealer for lighter makeup days when you’re just strolling around the castle grounds or want to give your face a little break.
Maybelline Eraser Eye Concealer
The hype may have died down a little about the *Maybelline Eraser Eye Concealer but I’m just not ready to let it go.
Sorry I just couldn’t help myself with that one.
This particular concealer is pretty unique due to its sponge applicator and although I wasn’t sure if I’d enjoy this feature (a bit like going into the unknown), I was pleasantly surprised by the easy application and how much area it covered in one go. This is definitely a big help when you’re in a rush and ideal for under eyes.
With “eraser” in the name, you’d expect big impact when it comes to camouflaging and I can happily say, it lives up to the name.
Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer
Now here’s a concealer that had the kingdom talking for months. The concealer that was knighted the high-street dupe for the famous Tarte Shape Tape concealer. It certainly made a name for itself and I knew I had to try it for myself.
Admittedly I adore my Shape Tape concealer so I knew it would be hard to beat in my books. Would you believe that the coverage was just as impressive?
*This concealer is a godsend for when your skin is feeling more like a fixer upper if you know what I mean. Tackle those annoyingly stubborn areas! This concealer has you covered… literally!
Again, this is another product that dries down matte but still keeps the skin looking nothing less than flawless. And for the most impressive element, there’s 24 shades on offer to suit all undertones. It’s definitely one to add to your makeup bag or royal vanity.
Love is definitely an open door for these beauties (too cheesy?). Have you got a favourite yet?
