I purchased MAC Pro Longwear Concealer for the first time a little over a year ago for the sole purpose of concealing my dreaded under-eye circles and fell in love. I’ve tried a few different concealers since then and always come back to my tried and true, it’s definitely my favorite!
It comes in a small glass jar with a pump making it easy to dispense the perfect amount (but don’t press too hard or you will get too much.) To brighten under the eyes you should use a concealer 1 or 2 shades lighter than your foundation. Pro Longwear in NW40 is the perfect shade for me.
The lightweight liquid blends well and can be built up to medium and even full coverage. It dries down to a long lasting matte finish that doesn’t crease or budge all day when set with a powder. To use I pump a small amount onto the back of my hand or a metal palette. After applying my primer I use my fingertips to apply the concealer under my eyes in the shape of a triangle…
I let it dry for about 30 seconds and then use my fingertips and or a blending brush to blend it out. When applying my foundation I buff out any hard edges and blend some more.
MAC Pro Longwear Concealer retails at $18 and can be purchased at maccosmetics.com or at a MAC Counter near you.
