As a makeup lover, I always want to find the best products that work for my skin. And concealer is one of the key products to an everyday makeup routine. After trying a variety of brands, from drugstore products to high end, I’ve come to believe that I have found the “holy grail” of concealers.
The Becca Aqua Luminous concealer will cover any discoloration or blemishes without making your skin look unnatural or “cakey.” This concealer offers you the medium to full coverage you may desire in a concealer without drying out your skin. Now I'll be honest, those creases under the eyes are inevitable for concealers. I got creases once I hit the six hour mark with it on, but that is still pretty long lasting compared to the others I’ve tried. I discovered that the best was to get rid of those dreadful creases is to “bake” underneath your eyes!
Baking is the makeup technique of placing a decent amount of translucent powder, underneath your eyes, than letting it sit for 5-10 minutes. When the time is up, take your fluffiest brush to swipe away the powder. That should leave your pores smooth and your under eyes crease free! I learned this technique from beauty guru’s on Youtube like Jaclyn Hill and Heidi Hamoud who do an amazing job explaining the process of baking!
Aside from creases, this concealer does everything else right. The Becca Concealer is made up of 32% water making it extremely blendable which helped blur my dark circles, blemishes, and hyperpigmentation. Its water-rich formula offers maximum moisture to your skin leaving it smooth and hydrated all throughout the day! Perfect for combination or oily skin!
A review of the concealer on the Ulta website stated, “It perfectly covers my blemishes and pimple scars, and that's really all I need. Also, it's the first makeup item I've found that matches PERFECTLY with my skin!.” And I couldn’t agree with her more. I’d give the concealer 6 stars if I could.. But for now 5 will do!
