Concealaholic: Bags be gone!

3 Mar

So, I’m ashamed to say that a year ago I never used concealer. Yes, I know, how did I live? How did I go out in the mornings? Well, in retrospect, I’m glad I didn’t, because it allowed me to learn to like my face without make-up. I’m not ashamed to post my non-makeup eye look on here because I learnt to do just that. Here’s a little before shot. Excuse the extremely unruly eyebrows and greasy skin (I just moisturised!)

However, this glorious invention has since entered my life, and I’ve been searching for the perfect budget concealer for a while. And I think I’ve found the perfect combination.

In this picture, I am wearing the following products.
Gosh Foundation Primer in Classic
Rimmel London Stay Matte Foundation in 103: True Ivory
Miss Sporty Liquid Concealer in 001: Light (applied first with a brush, this is a heavy-duty concealer)
Bourjois Bio-Detox Organic Anti-Puffiness Concealer(phew!) in No. 2- Medium (dabbed gently with my ring finger)
Collection 2000 Pressed Powder in 10: Daydream
Barry M Kohl Pencil in White (along my waterline)
Stila Eyeshadow in Sandra (unfortunately discontinued, but any champagne colour would work!)
Gosh Haute Precision Mascara in Black

Hopefully, this finished eye look gives a better look than the natural one, but make-up obviously shouldn’t be changing your face entirely, it should just enhance your features naturally on an everyday basis.


(Just a quick note, these pictures were taken 10 minutes apart, with the same facial expression and in the same lighting and place. I find it really obvious when companies take before and after pictures that have been tweaked with lighting changes, or airbrushing!)

If anyone has any suggestions or comments about any of their concealing products or any of mine, then I’d love to hear! Also, if anyone would like a review on a certain product, then just leave me a comment!

Happy weekend, and don’t forget to smile!
Christie 🙂

    Great post! I’ve been looking for something great to use on my under eye bags for a long time. I’ve been using the Collection 2000 one for a while, but i do find it hard to work with sometimes, great to know there’s other to experiment with 🙂 Also your mascara looks awesome! 🙂

      Thank you so much! I’ve been using the combination for a while now actually, and all of the products have lasted a long time, and don’t leave my skin greasy. I’ve heard a lot of good things about the Collection 2000 one though 🙂

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and
    was wondering what all is needed to get set up?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% positive. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Amazing blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it
    from somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple tweeks would really
    make my blog stand out. Please let me know where you got your design.
    With thanks

    Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than
    just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all.
    However imagine if you added some great pictures or videos to give your posts more, “pop”!

    Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this blog could undeniably be one of the
    most beneficial in its niche. Great blog!
