Concealer Queen

Our skin isn’t quite as luminous, healthy, glowing or tanned as we’d like at the moment, and January definitely is not our best friend, so what do we need to do?

The resounding outcome of our internal poll at House of Coco headquarters is that we need to conceal of course!

We’ve picked our top 3 ‘of the moment’ concealers to showcase that we can still be beautiful even through the great British winter months.

Benefit Cosmetics, Fakeup Undereye Concealer


This hydrating crease-control concealer is packed with fabulousness, including vitamin E & apple seed extract, which hides dark circles and diffuses fine lines to offer a silky smooth, ultra-natural look. Benefit’s super concealer is available in three shades; light, medium and deep. Proven to keep skin hydrated for six hours, meaning this is perfect for our January needs.

Priced at £18.50 for 3.5g. Available to buy online from Benefit Cosmetics UK or from high street stores.

Mary Kay®, Perfecting Concealer


Brand new Perfecting Concealer from Mary Kay® for full coverage and a flawless finish is available in six shades: Light Ivory, Deep Ivory, Light Beige, Deep Beige, Light Bronze and Dark Bronze. There’s a shade to suit all skin types giving a natural, even-looking complexion. The long-lasting and lightweight formula camouflages dark spots, redness and dark under eye circles whilst providing a creamy, crease proof finish. Light diffusing technology helps blur the appearance of fine lines and disguises imperfections.

The Perfecting Concealer is buildable and blendable, so it’s easy to create the right amount of coverage needed to disguise skin imperfections, which is exactly what we need this January!

Priced at £10 for 6g, available online from Mary Kay®.

Illamasqua, Skin Base Lift Concealer


This new enhancing formula by super funky brand Illamasqua is based on their cult product Skin Base foundation. It lifts and brightens the under eye area providing neutralizing colour correction and natural coverage.

Each Skin Base Lift shade was created to match and work in harmony with Skin Base Foundation and in conjunction with Hydra Veil to form the ultimate skin trilogy. The definitive trio for Skin Realism.

Skin Base Lift gently conceals and illuminates your most delicate area of skin, which is prone to unflattering cool dark undertones, whilst minimizing visible fatigue. Perfect for our tired January skin!

Priced at £16 and available from the online Illamasqua store, or from UK high street outlets including London, Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool, Birmingham, Glasgow, Brighton, Belfast, Edinburgh, Dunfermline, and Bradford.

We are in love with all the above concealers for 2017!
