Meet MAC's Pro Longwear Concealer. It's my new best friend (and my tired, stressed-out, sleep-deprived clientele's, too). I could do an whole blog on this entire line of MAC Pro Longwear. . . I happen to love this stuff!
I'm going through more of this concealer than any I've used on any clients before now. Its consistency is perfect for that oh-so-delicate skin that's just under eyes. Its pigment is opaque enough to hide dark circles and red areas. Yet it's non-drying like some other pasty concealers. I love it as a prelude to a light misting of MAC's airbrush formula foundation.
I'm also using it personally. . .it's in my makeup drawer in my own dressing room. Which seems to be a test of makeup that I just can't do without in my kit. A tiny dab will do. . . blend in small circles with a fluffy eyeshadow brush that you dedicate to your concealer.
Looking to switch things up a bit with your concealer? I'd highly suggest this! Remember, concealing rules have evolved: Gone are the days of "reverse raccoon eyes" (you know, where your under-eye makeup is way too light). The secret to successful concealing is matching your own skin tone, nearly exactly.
