The problem with blemishes (besides everything) is that you have a whole multitude of concerns to deal with all at once.
1) Isolating the underlying cause (also known as a combination of screaming “WHY, GOD, WHY?!” and throwing what you thought what your perfectly able cleanser across the room)
2) Healing the spot (also known as “Making the damn thing go away and never come back') and
3) Hiding it (also known as “Let's pretend none of this ever happened')
Bibi tipped us off to Tarte’s Maracuja Creaseless Concealer, and it's a serious multi-tasker: we’re talking moisturizing, brightening, and covering up all in one. It’s creamy and thick, which makes squeezing the product out of the tube a little tough but also means some serious staying power. It somehow—magic? maracuja!—doesn’t fall into the fine lines under your eyes (so, great for tired mornings-after), and it’s light enough that we can smooth some on and forget about it. Maracuja oil is super-rich in vitamin C (hence the upped radiance), vitamin E, and essential fatty acids. It also has some anti-aging oomph, so while you’re covering up what irks you, you’re actually helping your skin out. The above steps 1-3? Check, check, check.
