Tried and Tested: Concealers You Need for Flawless Skin

Blemishes and skin imperfections have the annoying habit of popping up when your social calendar happens to be jam-packed with important events. So with the festive season just a month or so away, we’ve rounded up five of our favourite concealers that we won’t leave home without. Pop one of these beauties into your handbag and those pesky imperfections won’t stand a chance.

1. Natural concealers don’t get better than this. Dr. Hauschka Concealer  ($42) combines mineral pigments with nourishing botanical ingredients to hide imperfections while nurturing skin. 

2.  Busy social schedules often result in dark circles under the eyes. Fortunately By Terry Terrybly Densiliss Concealer ($110 from MECCA Cosmetica) has been formulated to fight fine lines, dark circles and under-eye puffiness.

3. After a formulation that’s simple to use? NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer ($52 from MECCA Cosmetica) blends and builds easy to conceal blemishes quickly.

4. Burning the candle at both ends? Then you might want to keep Bobbi Brown Instant Full Coverage Concealer ($70) on hand. The richly pigmented formulation banishes dark under-eye circles without budging: it’s water-, sweat- and humidity-resistant.

5. If it’s a luxe formulation you’re after, La Mer The Concealer ($160) is worth every penny. The creamy concealer glides on without hassle and is formulated La Mer’s iconic Miracle Broth so you know you’re caring for your skin at the same time.





The Best Make-up to Make Your Complexion Glow

A change in the season can unfortunately, leave once-radiant skin lacklustre and dehydrated. While a thorough skincare routine – packed with nourishing hydrating ingredients – is crucial to keeping skin luminous all-year-round, next-generation foundation formulations and highlighters can help get skin glowing in no time below. We’ve rounded up the best newcomers to the beauty world that will help you get glowing right now.

The Best Foundations for Glowing Skin

The arrival of a new season is the ideal time to rethink your go-to foundation and Guerlain L’Essential Natural Glow Foundation ($102) has been created with 97 per cent natural-origin ingredients to provide skin with radiance for up to 16 hours. Skincare and make-up go hand in hand so Giorgio Armani has combined the best of both worlds with My Armani To Go Tone Up Cushion ($116). Packed with youth-restoring ingredients and anti-pollution protection, this clever little compact does much more than providing skin with a bright and dewy glow. YSL Touche Éclat goes full-coverage with new High Cover Radiant Concealer Pen ($69). It glides on just like the iconic original to create a natural-looking so make sure you pop it in your handbag for on-the-go touch-up.

All-in-one NARS Mosaic Glow Blush ($72 from Mecca) features a blush, bronzer and highlighter to get skin glowing in no time at all. Dior Diorskin Nude Luminizer in Pink Glow infuses skin with a subtle hint of iridescent pink. Not only will Westman Atelier Beauty Butter Powder Bronzer ($129) give your skin a tropical-island-getaway glow, nourishing ingredients including cocoa seed and mango seed nurture skin at the same time.
