I am definitely not a makeup artist or professional, but I know a good concealer when I find one! These are my all time favorite concealers, including what I think is the best concealer for summer!
Make Up For Ever Full Cover Concealer
Link: Make Up For Ever
About ten years ago, I had hyperpigmentation from going off birth control cold turkey. I was going on a summer vacation with my husband and I wanted a waterproof concealer so that I could feel confident and still have fun in the water. I found the Makeup For Ever Full Cover concealer and fell in love with it! It was like a miracle concealer and I have been using it ever since! It covers blemishes and dark circles! I don’t put it all under my eye like I do with other concealers because it is thicker and it does not look good with mature skin. If I’ve had a rough night, I just dap a little in the corner of my eyes to brighten it up. Even when I don’t want to wear makeup, I use this concealer for problem areas and it creates a natural, no makeup, makeup look. It lasts through workout and even with wearing a mask all day! I mostly use the shade ivory #6, but also have #7 sand if I’ve used sunless tanning or if I’m a little darker. It’s $34 at Sephora and Ulta and it lasts a very long time. One tube usually lasts me a year.
Tarte Creaseless Concealer
I found this concealer after trying the regular Shape Tape and just found it being too drying and it just didn’t work well with mature skin. I don’t like to put a lot of concealer under my eyes because I feel like it makes me look older and settles in fine lines. This concealer is perfect to go under your eyes to cover dark circles and sometimes I put it on my nose and in my t zone for a little glow. I use the shade light sand and it just brightens you up while giving you a little glow!
Tarte Shape Tape Ultra Creamy

I just started using the ultra creamy Shape Tape a couple weeks ago because I did like the coverage of Shape Tape, but just didn’t like how thick and drying it was. They definitely nailed it with this one! I got the shade light neutral 16N and it works great for me! It brightens up my eyes and dark circles and I also use this in my t zone and around my mouth and middle of my chin.
