Whatever the case may be, these are the days that concealer becomes a girl’s best friend. There is a range of concealers, from CVS brands to Sephora, that can help cover up those tricky spots.
Kat Von D’s cover-up has been proven to be very effective because it’s used to cover up tattoos. If it has enough power to hide your ink, then it should be more than enough to cover up any little surprises that may appear on your face overnight.
For those of you who suffer from those pesky bags under your eyes, Benefit’s Erase Paste works wonders. It’s a small, cream-based concealer that comes in fair, medium and dark shades, perfect for every skin tone. Just simply dab some under your eyes and voila, under eye circles are gone.
As poor college students, drugstore make-up will probably be your best bet, and the only one that realistically fit into your budget. However, just because you’re buying it in CVS rather than Sephora doesn’t mean it’s not good. L’Oreal’s True Match truly is a match made in heaven. It offers great coverage for all different skin tones all for the college student budget-friendly price of $7.99.
No matter what your budget is like, no one should have to suffer going through the day with a huge pimple on your cheek or dark circles under your eyes. There are so many different brands with great concealers so just try a couple of different ones until you find the one that’s right for you.
