A Bobbi Brown concealer is an integral part of any makeup bag. Not only are the formulas super creamy and hydrating, they are incredibly long-lasting and give you the coverage you want based on your desired finish.

Why Concealer is important in your Makeup Routine

When you apply foundation or any tinted face base, you can still notice blemishes, imperfections and dark circles peeking through.

If you want to have a little more coverage on these areas, adding in a concealer will ensure all imperfections are covered without compromising on the health or natural beauty of your skin. As the shade matches your skin tone, it adds that needed boost of protection and coverage, without looking like you're caked in makeup.

What is the Difference Between Concealer and Corrector?

Although concealers and correctors do the same job at hiding imperfections, they work in two completely different ways.

Concealers are skin toned, and while excellent at hiding a multitude of sins, don't always work in the battle against dark circles or redness. Correctors on the other hand, usually come in a range of shades, including peach to help neutralise purple and red tones in the skin. You can also use concealer on its own without the use of corrector, but not the other way around due to the difference in tone.

For best results, apply a corrector to blemishes and dark circles, and then follow with a concealer on top to completely cancel out the redness and even out your skin tone.

The Bobbi Brown Creamy Corrector has been formulated especially for those early mornings when your eyes look a little more than fatigued. The pink-hued formula instantly brightens and corrects dark circles to make your peepers look more awake. Its creamy formula blends seamlessly into the skin to avoid creasing, and is both waterproof and sweat resistant, making it perfect for even the warmest of days.

Alternatively, if you prefer a more liquid formula, try Bobbi's Intensive Skin Serum Corrector, which is a silky formula designed to treat under eye discolouration. The corrector comes in a wide range of shades, so you can find the tone suited to your skin, to make your eyes look natural and rejuvenated.
