Social media editor Tess Durrant discovers the perfect long-wear concealer.
Tess’s challenge: “I want a long-wear product that provides natural-looking undereye coverage.”
Beauty Solution: L’Oréal Paris Infallible Full Wear Concealer
Her beauty diary: Tess’s beauty philosophy is all about two things: skin and simplicity. “I’ve realized that for me, less is more,” she says. “In the morning, I get ready in five minutes. I wash my face with water, moisturize and then apply mascara, concealer and lipgloss.” Because Tess doesn’t use many products, it’s important that the ones she does use are perfect for her skin and provide the long-lasting, natural-looking coverage she needs to conceal her undereye circles. “Matching your concealer to your skin is extremely important,” says Tess. “You want to brighten your face, but you don’t want to go too light. I found exactly what I was looking for with Infallible Full Wear Concealer in ‘Almond 410.’ The colour is perfect, plus it’s waterproof and lasts all day.”
“A single stroke of concealer under my eyes, a few dabs to blend it in, a bit of lipgloss and I’m good to go.”
Pro tip: “I like to use it as a foundation because you can really build the coverage,” says Jodi Urichuk, L’Oréal Paris Canadian makeup artist and expert. “You can even blend it with a bit of highlighter and make it a glowy foundation—or mix it on your hand with a little moisturizer for a tinted effect.”
It’s a concealer—but it’s a lot more than a concealer. Available in 25 shades, this waterproof, non-greasy, multi-use formula tackles dark circles and other facial imperfections. The extra-large applicator can also be used to contour and highlight. Go one or two shades darker to add depth and one or two shades lighter to brighten.
How to achieve natural-looking undereye coverage in just one simple step:
- To naturally brighten dark circles, apply in a triangle under each eye before blending.
