Concealers That Allie Glines Can't Live Without

When you find the perfect concealer, you need to treasure the moment forever. Concealers come in so many different textures, consistencies, and price points, with each targeting specific areas of your face. There's a science to picking the right one. 

Glamour recommends going in with a clear focus when shopping for concealer. Ask yourself: Do you need a light product that's touch and go? Are you looking for a color corrector to blur your more stubborn blemishes? What shade(s) do you need? The answers will help you narrow down what you're looking for.

Additionally, YouTube makeup artist Allie Glines has saved you from some of the guesswork by putting tried and true concealers to the test. In one YouTube video, she polled her followers for their absolute favorite concealer, and e.l.f. Cosmetics Hydrating Camo Concealer came in first place. According to Glines, one reviewer shared that the drugstore concealer is moisturizing and doesn't cake as easily as other concealers.

Glines dropped the concealers that she personally swears by and what makes them a cut above the rest in a series of YouTube videos.

Allie Glines' go-to concealers are lightweight with long-lasting coverage

Allie Glines shared her go-to concealers in a YouTube review. In the video, she focuses on the coverage, usability, and staying power of the various products. For beauty lovers who prefer a more natural look, Glines recommends Maybelline's Fit Me Concealer. "This is a really great medium coverage concealer," she explains. "The consistency is kind of more watery but it blends out really beautifully, and it's just again so good for every day." Bustle voted this drugstore concealer one of the best products for people with oily skin.

In her video, Glines also highlights the cult-favorite Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer. The makeup expert uses the light concealer to target under-eye dark circles. She sang its praises for offering coverage that lasts all day. Today reviewed the internet's favorite makeup product and reaffirmed why its 4.4 Amazon rating is well deserved. The outlet praised its quality, clump-free formula, and application sponge. According to InStyle, model and all-around beauty icon Gigi Hadid also swears by this multi-use concealer.

More concealers Allie Glines swears by

Ulta Beauty's Full Coverage Liquid Concealer also got Allie Glines' vote of confidence (via YouTube). Though the makeup artist is upfront about the heavier formula, she stressed that it's unnoticeable. "If you put this on underneath your eyes, your dark circles will be gone," she explained. "Honestly, it is amazing. And it feels a little bit more heavy on the skin. If you bake your under-eyes, I've noticed it just kind of feels a little bit more tight, a little heavier, but it doesn't look that way."

In another YouTube review, Glines compared CoverGirl's TruBlend Undercover Concealer and Maybelline's SuperStay 24Hr Concealer in a side-by-side test. Though both drugstore concealers are affordable, lightweight, and provide full coverage, CoverGirl's concealer was crowned the winner. The beauty guru shared that the TruBlend Undercover Concealer was brighter, smoother and masked her pores. The mega beauty brand also offers the concealer in a wider range of skin tones, which makes it easier to find your match. On its product page, it boasts a 4.3 rating, and some users commended its consistency for the price. With Glines' stamp of approval, you really can't go wrong.
