Concealer is without doubt my desert island product. Concealer is the product that can save you from wearing too much foundation or even wearing foundation at all. It's much thicker than foundation and will grip to the skin much better and therefore will cover spots, blemishes and dark circles far more effectively.

What order to apply it... Apply your primer as usual and your concealer comes next (unless you're using a colour correcting product too, in which case apply the colour corrector and follow with concealer). Apply it either with a clean finger or a small fluffy blending brush. You then apply your foundation over the top. If the concealer has shifted in places (particularly if you're covering a bad breakout) then reapply concealer now where needed. Set the make up with a powder. Press the powder onto the skin gently to avoid moving and more product.

Purchasing the right concealer.

You want a concealer that matches your skin tone or is a touch lighter. If it's too dark then it will almost make your skin look grubby.

Remember when applying concealer to your under eyes that it will settle into lines and creases there's not a huge amount you can do about this apart from patting it in a few times while it's setting. Don't apply any powder under your eyes if you struggle with creasing as this can make it worse. By patting it in it will eventually stop gathering in the creases.

I always apply concealer in the following places... dark circles, spots, dark spots, around the corner of the nose, and under the brow before applying eye shadow.

My favourite concealers are... Arbonne Concealer (great for covering spots)

Maybelline New York Fit me and anti age eraser (good for under eyes)

Mac pro-long wear concealer comes in loads of different shades

Revolution conceal and define concealer. Great value for money and good coverage

Do you have a favourite concealer?

My top 5 products of the last 12 month's...

Well this was harder than I thought it was going to be. Trying to narrow down my kit to just 5 products from literally thousands of items, but this is what I've come up with.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Bronzing Glow Liquid is just gorgeous. It's become a real game changer in my kit. Wearable on its own or mixed with a foundation it gives that desirable bronzed glow with very little effort. One small pump mixed in with your foundation for a really subtle effect. The bottle is a decent size too and will last you ages.

Lumene Invisible Illumination Instant Glow Beauty Serum... now it might be a bit of a mouthful but it's totally worth it. This very light liquid applies to your skin with or without primer for an instant lift. It smells devine and is so easy to apply (even with your fingers- yes I did actually say that). I love it on freckled skin, sometimes mixed with the Rouge Bunny Rouge Bronzing liquid. Last summer I wore this almost every day, it's so light it barely feels like you're wearing anything but the look is really impressive.

Arbonne Intelligence CC cream. This colour correcting formula is so impressive in the way it covers and lifts the skin. Lighter than a foundation but heavier than a BB Cream, it's great for those looking for dual use day to night product. Fantastic on older skin too and super easy to blend

Morphe and Jaclyn Hill eyeshadow palette. It's shades cover such a range of colours and the mix of shimmers and mattes have been so well thought out. The pigments are stunning and really easy to blend too. This comes out at every bridal trial now.

The last product wasn't so easy to narrow down. I was between the following... Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder, Revolution Makeup Conceal and Define Concealer, WUNDER2 - High Tech Beauty eye shadow primer, the Urban Decay Cosmetics All nighter setting spray or Arbonne Primer.

I decided on the Urban Decay All nighter setting spray. I have a few setting sprays in my kit but having tried and tested them all myself I always end up coming back to All nighter. It really has got your back... a little tip. If you want to buy one for the odd occasion but don't want to buy a full size version, then head over to eBay for their samples!
