The Best Affordable Concealer

Although I’m not a full-face of makeup kind of gal, I do like to use concealer to cover up blemishes and marks on my face. I also aim to buy affordable products that I know I’ll be buying often, AKA, concealer. It took me a while to figure out which concealer was best for me and I went through tons of affordable to expensive products before finding the perfect one (which happened to only be under $15).

I’ve now been using the same concealer for 4 years and I can honestly say that it’s my favourite (even over the NARS creamy concealer, can you believe it?!?). This is literally the only concealer in my makeup drawer, and I’ve got two shades, one for my paler seasons and one for when I’m tanned 💁🏽‍♀️

I use concealer the most on my under eyes and on my chin where I have a couple dark spots that I’m trying to get rid of. Right on top of my concealer I put on a pressed powder from the same brand and the two together make a flawless complexion 🙌🏽 .

I don’t wear foundation so I can’t speak to how the concealer sits overtop of it but wearing it bare has worked very well for me! It’s buildable, just the right consistency and has great coverage. In addition, it’s oil free which is important to me because I’ve got naturally oily skin.

And the concealer is…..Drumroll please……Maybelline’s Fit Me Liquid Concealer!

Some of you may have tried this already but if you haven’t I highly recommend that you do!! Especially if you’re looking for a more affordable option 😉 (not sponsored or an ad, I just truly love this product).

I use the shade 25-Medium for my natural skin colour and shade 35-Deep for when I’m tanned. I use my fingers to do the primary blending of the concealer and then follow it with a beauty blender to get an extra natural look.

The pressed powder that I use on top of this concealer is the Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Pressed Powder in shade 220 – Natural Beige. It takes away any natural shine that I have and it’s great for touching up throughout the day!

Have you guys tried either of these products? Let me know your thoughts in the comments! 💕
