When it comes to our skin, most of us are pretty fussy about what we put on it. Finding the perfect product to conceal our breakouts can be a full-time occupation, with so many items on the market that claim to be the holy grail. We've all spent a pretty penny on the latest concealer only to find that it doesn't match up to our expectations - or our skin type. It's a never-ending battle - but Popsugar may have just done all the hard work for us. It's not what you'd expect, but according to them, the best concealer on the market is actually an eyeshadow from MAC.
While primer should be a staple part of your beauty regimen (after all, you wouldn't build a house without laying the foundations, would you?) MAC's Pro Longwear Paint Pot may be the thing we've all been missing. Although it's specifically designed for use on the eyelids to help eyeshadow stay in place all the live-long day, it can also be used as a stand-alone product. It's hardwearing, blends easily and is available in a variety of great nude shades. If you match the right one to your skin tone, then the world is your blemish-free oyster.
With nine shades on offer from porcelain nude to a deep purple, four of these mimic natural skin tones in a way that can seriously help reduce redness and keep your other makeup locked into place. It's also not going to break the bank either, coming in at around $20. A little goes a long way, and can definitely replace your current concealer in a heartbeat. It's not the first time that we've found glory in strange places either - lipstick can be used (albeit sparingly) as rouge, and who hasn't filled out their brows with a brown eyeshadow? When it comes to finding your perfect products, don't be scared to think outside of the make-up bag and do some digging around. You might be surprised at what you find.
