Why concealer is now the most important product in your make-up bag – Telegraph.co.uk

Safe to say I tried it the next morning and it’s the method I’ve adopted ever since for quick daily make-up. I’ve been using three concealers on rotation, and rate them for their different finishes. The first is the All Hours Concealer by YSL, which, as the name suggests, is incredibly long-lasting. I’ve always loved the brand’s foundations (my editor Marianne swears by the lighter base, Le Teint Touche Eclat, £33.50) but the All Hours Concealer is seriously impressive for a creamy, full-coverage finish.

Also outstanding is the Instant Full Cover Concealer by Bobbi Brown. The shade range is very good, and like the YSL version, you only need a little dab and then you can blend with your fingers, or I like to use a Beauty Blender Sponge, £16, ‘bounced’ on to the skin to get an even finish.
