Top 3 Cover Ups
Published Oct 18, 2011
Blemishes, red spots, dark under-eye circles—all these things make us feel unattractive and less than confident. Concealers that are easy to use and directly target the nasty spots are a cinch to apply when you're at work or school, and can be used for touch-ups throughout the day. We looked at three different types—a brush, wand, and sponge tip—to see which performed the best.
This brush is perfect for hiding fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes, and the concealer contains anti-aging antioxidants. The brush is simple to use, and if you allow only a little to appear on the bristles, you can use it like a paintbrush.
You could almost call it a magic wand. A tiny amount of product goes a long way and completely covers a blemish or red spot. It's also great on dark circles and the red area around your nose. Just be sure to tap it onto your skin with your fingers for the best coverage.
This contains salicylic acid to stop breakouts. The multitasking oil-free formula is quite sheer, so you can use the sponge-tip applicator to build up a few layers to cover a blemish, while the salicylic acid in the product works to heal it.
