Swatches: MAC Studio Finish Concealer + concealer tips

Just a quick post of my FAVE concealer ever! 
Hands down to this product! It is opaque and lightweight at the same time. The formula is super pigmented that it can cover moles, birthmarks and blemishes. It is also enriched with anti-oxidants Vit. E and A and has SPF 35 for skin protection. It is priced at Php 1,000 each for 7 grams, but trust me this tiny pot will last you a long time.

This product is a must have in my kikay kit. As you can see I own three shades NC20, NC30 and NW25. I'll tell you in a bit on how I use the following shades.

MAC Studio Finish SPF 35 concealer
NC20, NC30, NW25


 
I use the following brushes to apply concealer:
Ecotools flat synthetic brush from the 5 pc. set to highlight (browbone)
Ecotools Smudge brush from their Eye set (blemishes)
MAC 242 shader brush (undereyes)


NC20 -  I find that this shade is too light for my undereyes, so I use it as highlight instead under the brows. 

NC30 - to cover pimples and pimple marks. 

NW25 - is perfect as an undereye concealer. The peachy/salmon tone neutralizes and counteracts my purplish dark circles. Doesn't crease and stays put all day when set with my fave Ben Nye Luxury Banana Powder.

I found this helpful guide on Instagram on how to conceal dark undereye circles.



 You can also use the following brushes to apply concealer. 
The fluffy ones for an airbrushed effect, while the flat brush for more coverage.

ELF Eyeshadow Stipple brush (dupe for MAC 282SE) from Stipple Set
ELF Tapered Stipple brush (dupe for MAC 286SE) from Stipple Set
MAC 224 Blending brush (Php 2,000)
MAC 242 Shader brush (Php 1,600)
