After a Makeup Artist Used This Concealer on Me, I Bought It That Day – Bye, Dark Circles

You could call me a bit of a concealer snob . I have tried tons of different options, always hunting for a choice that meets my high standards. I want something that hides dark circles, covers acne, and stays on all day long. I found my new favorite when a makeup artist applied this Kat Von D Lock-It Concealer Crème ($26) to my face for a shoot.

As soon as my full face of makeup was on, I audibly gasped. I looked wide awake and airbrushed. The concealer had covered all of my blemishes without making me look cakey – a tricky task. It melted into my skin for a natural-looking finish. But then came the real task – would the formula actually stay on all day long?

I was filming a video under hot lights for hours, and frankly, I was sweating a lot. The makeup artist never had to give my skin a touch-up. I stayed camera-ready all day long. I learned that the product is made with complexion-brightening pigments and hydrating ingredients that make the formula crease-proof. I noticed that my skin didn’t feel dry when I wiped away my makeup later on.

After just one day, I was so impressed that I immediately ordered the concealer online from Sephora. Thankfully, the product comes in an extensive range of shades so that most skin tones can have a perfect match. If you’re in the market for a new option, I highly recommend this pick.

I Tested the 7 Best Fenty Beauty Products For Skin of Color So You Don't Have to

It’s mind-boggling that in 2017, having one makeup line with offerings for more than just a handful of complexions is a huge ask. So of course the hype around Fenty Beauty by Rihanna hit a thousand and hasn’t let up since the collection dropped last week. Just stop by any Sephora store and you’ll see ravaged Fenty Beauty gondolas where dreams of looking like Rihanna once lived.

Rihanna can pretty much do no wrong in many people’s eyes, including mine, but she isn’t the first celeb to do a beauty line. She has been very vocal about the importance of inclusivity with this collection . . . so I had to test it out for myself to see if it lived up to the hype and to find out which products actually look good on skin of color. Hint: it’s pretty much the entire damn collection, but here are the best ones.

See the Bohemian-Chic Sephora x Mara Hoffman Collab Before It Hits Stores

If you’ve ever been to Coachella, you’ve probably worn one of Mara Hoffman ‘s abstract-printed dresses or bathing suits , and this Summer, you can bring that same free-spirited vibe to your beauty routine. The designer has teamed up with Sephora on her first-ever, limited-edition makeup collaboration dubbed Kaleidescape. The news was announced in February during New York Fashion Week , as Sephora provides the makeup for Mara’s runway shows. And now, we finally have a first look at the makeup, brushes, and cosmetics cases, which launch in July.

“I don’t want you to look like you’re wearing makeup,” Mara told us of her influence. “I’ve never really related to that. I think now as I get older, too, I love seeing a woman who is even more pared down.”

The minimalist products she choose were also inspired by her own hippie-chic beauty routine. “I feel like I’m my natural most comfortable state of being when I look – it’s not disheveled – but like I’ve been in nature on some level,” she explained. “That beach look is a really comfy space for me. A bit of salty, crusty hair. And sort of sun-kissed skin – but not really, because nobody needs a tan anymore.”

The offering reflects this with three do-it-all cheek trios in bronze, blush, and highlighter shades ($28); five slightly pigmented lip glosses that range from beige to coral ($28); and a tinted lip balm in a sheer rose hue ($18). A stand-out is a multitaking balm for face, body, and hair ($30) with the loveliest lavender scent. There are also Mara Hoffman–printed makeup brushes ($24-$64) and cosmemetics cases ($20-$110) that double as clutches.

What makes these items so exceptional is that they contain mostly natural and organic ingredients, such as sunflower seed oil, cocoa seed butter, lavender and rosemary leaf extract, and coconut oil. “When we sat down to talk about it, I said I wanted to be able to use my fingers,” Mara noted. “And whatever we made, I wanted it to be safe enough to use on my kid. Anywhere we could, we used organic or natural ingredients instead of synthetics.”

The packaging is Earth friendly, as well. Not only does it showcase her Spring 2016 prints, but it is also mostly made from sustainable materials. The brushes, cases, and makeup contain feature-coated organic cotton canvases and FSC–certified sustainable wood, and utilize low-impact printing.
