My Favourite Concealers To Help With Acne

I have mentioned in earlier posts that I used to have quite bad skin when I was in my teens.  Even as an adult in my 30’s I still get breakouts and have an uneven complexion.  I follow a strict skincare routine and have invested a lot of time into figuring out what will help to manage this.  Fortunately it is a lot better than it was, but I rely on good quality make-up to get the finish I want.

Concealer has always been something that is in my handbag, on tap, whenever I need it.  So, here is a rundown of my favourite concealers:

Laroc Beginners Collection, Natural Collection:

This is an amazing palette.  I cannot praise it enough.  You can see from the picture that there are 15 colours in total.  When my cheeks look red and blushed, I tone down the red pigmentation with the cool green concealer.  I then top this with the nude skin colour.  Personally, I use the green underneath my foundation, and then the nude colour on top of my foundation to set the colour.  I use the really light colour under my eyes also and it performs miracles in concealing the signs of sleep deprivation.

Jemma Kidd Colour Match Concealer:

This concealer is great for when you have a really bad pimple and need some serious coverage.  It is quite thick, so you only need to apply lightly.  I always put my foundation on first and top off with the concealer and set with powder.

Avon Ideal Flawless Cream Concealer – Medium:

I  tend to use this concealer when I am having a good skin day.  It is not as heavy as the Jemma Kidd concealer and provides a much lighter finish.  If I have a small blemish this will cover and blend nicely.  I would not use this under my eyes as the colour is a little dark, but it is great for the face.

Lancôme Maquicomplet

When I say I could not live without this concealer I am being brutally honest.  When I have had 2-3 hours sleep (following a long night with my 2 year old), this hides black circles around my eyes.  What I love most is that by the end of the day it is not sitting in any fine lines.  It looks fresh.  If I have a blemish, this will cover it and blend well with my foundation, without leaving a congealed finish.

Collection Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Concealer:

I purchased this foundation when I had left my go-to Lancôme concealer at home and needed a quick pick-up.  It was the cheapest of all of my concealers, so I had little expectation for its performance.  I can honestly say I will no longer judge products based on price.  This concealer gives a great finish and covers the most prominent of spots.  On my worst skin days this will cover 99% of the blemishes on my face and blends well with my foundation.  What I love most is that I am not left feeling like I have a mask on, even on my worst skin days.

I hope this helps you when you are picking out a concealer.  Having blemish prone skin can be a real nightmare, and I am always looking for any recommendations.

Which concealer do you find works best?

Much Love
