Concealer is amazing. It instantly brightens dark eye circles, conceals spots, camouflages pigmentation spots, and so much more. But how do you know which shade of concealer to choose? When you go to a makeup counter or drugstore to buy a concealer, the sales assistant will often tell you to choose a shade that’s 1 to 2 shades lighter than your skin tone. But choosing a lighter shade of concealer isn’t actually going to do anything at all. There’s actually a bit more to choosing a concealer than this. But don’t worry, I’m going to break it down and make it super simple for you so that you’ll never again waste money on the wrong concealer. So let’s get started with helping you choose your perfect concealer shade.
A great way to show someone how much you love them or are grateful for them is by giving them a beautiful gift at this time of year. But it doesn’t always have to be something big or that costs a lot of money. Sometimes it’s fun to give someone a few smaller gifts rather than one large one. That way, they get to open lots more pressies. Maybe you need to buy a few little stocking fillers or secret Santa gifts for your girlfriends or someone in your family. Perhaps you’re looking for something really nice for your kid’s teachers or one of your neighbours or colleagues. No matter who you need to buy gifts for this year, I’ve got some ideas that will help you out. I’ve put together a list of 20 beautiful Secret Santa gift ideas that only cost 20 Euro, but will have everyone thinking you spent so much more on them. Are you ready to go shopping?
