Concealer is definitely our best friend especially when we have uncountable sleepless nights. Dot the concealer under your eyes to erase dark circles, around your nose to get rid of redness and on any spots or blemishes you’d like to cover.

Keep the shine at bay with some trusty powder! Try sticking to translucent powders to keep your skin as natural as possible. Dust the powder on your T-zone (forehead, nose, chin) to reduce oil. Also, apply powder on the areas where you blended in your concealer to set the liquid product in place so that it doesn’t move around throughout the day.
