What’s In My Make-up Bag? : Urban Decay Concealer

Urban Decay’s Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer is my ride or die (wow that’s a mouthful). The formula is perfect because it’s very lightweight. It gives you a good amount of coverage but it’s not thick so it never creases! It lasts all day long and blends in easily. The concealer comes in a tube with an easy application wand. I apply it in upside down triangles under my eyes, down the bridge of my nose, on my forehead and chin. This gives you the most natural look instead of only doing your dark circles. I blend it out with the beauty blender and set it will a banana powder. I use the fair neutral color because I’m usually very pale, but I also have the light color and the formula is consistent between colors. If you love MAC’s Pro Longwear concealer you’ll love this one!

The Secret to Color Correcting!

Have you wanted to test out color correcting, but don’t even know where to start? This blog post is for you! I’ve always had the darkest circles under my eyes and nothing covers them, even the thickest of concealers. Like everyone I get bright red zits though I didn’t know what colors covered which problems, so I researched and here’s what I’ve found!

LAVENDER – sallowness. Cancels out yellow tones (possibly when you’re sick).

GREEN – neutralizes redness, breakouts, sunburns, and rosacea.

PINK – dark circles on fair toned skin. Works to lift the skin and reduce the appearance of sun spots.

YELLOW – dark circles & dullness. Eliminates purple-hued dark circles and works to brighten your skin tone.

PEACH – dark circles & spots. Neutralizes blue-hues in medium-dark skin tones. Covers hyper-pigmentation and helps to brighten fair skin.

ORANGE – Perfect for blue-hued dark circles or bruises, especially in medium-dark skin tones.

RED – reduces green appearance. Great for dark stubborn circles, hollow eyes, and even tattoos!

I purchased the NYX Color Correcting palette from Ulta to test it out and I LOVE IT! I use it all the time now. When I was first applying the green I was terrified because I thought there was no way you weren’t going to see the hulk disaster through, but you couldn’t tell at all! I applied primer, then color correcting, then foundation, and finally concealer! I was amazed to say the least. They blend out really well (I use a concealer brush to apply).
