Last week my aunt shot me a semi-despairing email that plaintively asked, “Candice, what’s a concealer that really covers dark circles?” She had unsuccessfully tried several formulas that wouldn’t even last through a normal workday, and was in need of some serious help. Her note reminded me that in the wide world of concealers, it’s important to know which formulas are best suited to your particular concerns so you choose the best product.
Since I’ve suffered from every face malady requiring a concealer—acne, scars, blemishes, undereye circles, the list goes on—and my combination skin poses its own set of challenges, I decided to come up with a mini-guide on how to find the perfect concealer for you.
It can be a bit of a black hole trying to sort through all the anti-aging beauty products on the market. That’s why we look to the all-knowing Jonell Copeland, the editor of the Ageist Beauty, a blog that focuses on dishing out beauty advice to ladies aged 35-50. This week, she’s giving us all the deets on her holiday season musts!
For some, endless holiday parties are an excuse to pull out the heavy duty, “special occasion” makeup. The truth is, caking on the makeup can be very aging. Instead of trying to cover things up with a mask of product, highlight your best features. Here are some of our favorite products that will have fellow revelers taking notice of your glow.
