Concealer used to be the least important part of my beauty kit. A Rimmel Hide The Blemish stick knocked around the bottom of my makeup bag, rooted out on occasion to cover up the odd blemish.
1) Hydrating Eye Cream, which has an inbuilt primer, to prep the area
2) Their new Corrector, available in 12 shades, to brighten and neutralise discoloration under the eyes. This is recommended for very dark circles or days when you need extra coverage - which for me these days, is all the freakin' time.
3) Creamy Concealer kit, a repackaged version which includes a concealer and pressed setting powder. There are 14 shades to choose from so you should be able to find your perfect match.

I’ve also used them on a few blemishes and found them just as effective so they get a big thumbs up from me all round , and I’m going back for that Hydrating Eye Cream just as soon as I’ve saved up my pennies.
