It’s been a hot minute guys! I’ve been so busy with life, but I’ll save that story (if you’re interested) for another day cause that’s not why you clicked on this post.

Before I introduce you to the star of the show, I’m quite sure that it’s a product almost every makeup junkie has in her kit; only that they’re yet to discover the other uses beyond what it is advertised to be.

Sooo are we ready to know what is responsible for this flawless coverage? It’s good, It’s affordable (as low as $4/1,300 NGN), It’s an OG, It’s none other than the – drumrolls – LA girl pro concealer! Okayyy I know you were probably expecting some drugstore foundation or some sort of hack, but naa it’s the famous LA girl pro concealer. The thing is a lot of people have this concealer but only use it to correct, conceal, highlight and contour; when it can also be used as a foundation (well I’ll tell you how). You know we’re all about multiuse of makeup products on here.

LA girl pro concealer can be used as a foundation and it gives a full coverage with long-lasting wear than the regular foundation. I know the LA girl concealer has a thick matte consistency and you’re wondering how the heck is it going to blend as a foundation but I’ll drop a few tips which when mastered will make you abandon your favorite high-end foundation (just kidding… or maybe not lol).

  • Add one or two drops of makeup revolution baking oil. This will make the concealer fluid and thinner. The glowy finish you get from this is ah-mazing! This oil is so good in keeping your makeup longer so don’t worry about getting greasy.
  • You could use dry oil where the above is unavailable. It’s also a great way to lock in moisture without making you oily. However, not all oils are suitable for this. The best oils to use are rosehip oil, argan oil, marula oil. Stay away from castor or coconut oil.
  • If the oil mixture is not your thing, you can apply some of the concealer to the back of your palm and warm it up with up with your fingers before applying. This will sheer it out and make it easier to blend.
