The Perfect Warm-Weather Concealer
By Shani Saxon-Parrish | 04/21/2008 - 20:50

When the weather warms up, facial oils are often released, and foundations and powders can easily slide off. And who wants heavy make-up face, anyway? Chanel’s Quick Cover Concealer or Nars concealer enriched with Vitamin E evens out skin tone in a mere fraction of the time that foundation does. Just dab on any discolored spots, like those dreadful dark circles under and around your eyes, the pesky acne scars on your nose, chin, or cheeks, or wherever, and blend well. Top with some subtle bronzer or blush, and you’re all set for the day!
