Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Treatment Makeup ($8) is my favorite concealer. I’ve written about it before, but it’s so good, I have to write about it again. Because it is that awesome.
Here’s how I use the product: I buy one of the tubes in a color one shade lighter than my skin tone to cover my under-eye circles. That way, the product functions as both concealer and highlighter. I apply it in a triangle shape underneath the eye, and lightly blend it with my fingers.
Then, I buy a second tube in my skin tone. I lightly dab this concealer where I need light coverage. If I need spot coverage, I apply it with my Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage brush. It’s lighter than my normal concealer, but the concentrated application with some light blending gives me a more natural look.
Mixing the two concealers and checking the blending with my new magnifying mirror gives me even, natural coverage. It doesn’t feel heavy, even in the heat, and with a good foundation primer, it doesn’t stray after a long day.
This concealer is the best drugstore find that I’ve purchased in years. It is definitely an under-$10 wonder.
