Dear concealer, I love you.
Like most people, I’d hail concealer as my desert island beauty product because whether you want something to quickly erase dark circles or have a spot you want to banish (cheers, maskne), concealer is the superman of skin-correcting. Plus, it takes two seconds to whiz or dot a spot of concealer on your skin and the results are instant and astounding.
Plus, there’s thousands of concealers on the market – from brightening and hardcore concealing to colour-correcting and translucent, so you’re guaranteed to find one for you.
And just when we thought we couldn’t love our trusty concealer any more, a viral TikTok beauty tutorial proved the humble concealer has yet another talent – face-lifting powers.
A TikTok beauty tutorial from Megha Singh has gone viral across the social media site after the beauty maven showed how to create a ‘face lift’ effect using concealer.
In the video, Megha can be seen swiping concealer across particular points of her face – like under her eye, next to her mouth and in the corner of her house – to create a lifting effect. After blending the concealer in using a BeautyBlender, she contrasts the left and right side of her face to show the lifting effect.
We are pretty damn impressed.
The video has been ‘liked’ hundreds of thousands of times by her followers who copied the hack themselves to emulate a face lift at home. See, you don’t always need cosmetic surgery to transform your face!
In the market for a new concealer? From illuminating, to colour-correcting, to industrial strength and weightless, there’s a solution for all; each created with specific skin concerns in mind. And now that many of us are ditching full coverage foundations for tactical touch-ups, a well-placed concealer might be all we need to feel ready and fresh-faced. Here are the best concealers to add to your beauty arsenal now.
