Blinging Bride: Picture Perfect Essential—Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Waterproof Concealer

As a recent bride and a new wife, I know the value of looking simply amazing day in and day out, and an amazing  concealer is the answer.  On my wedding photos, concealer was the key to my flawless appearance, and to remain consistent, my concealer is a must-have.

I'm not ashamed to admit that I love concealer—it's a girl's second best friend (after diamonds, of course). A great concealer erases dark circles, scarring, spots and anything else that you might want to hide. If you are searching for the perfect concealer, stop. Your search is over! Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Waterproof Concealer is the best!

Here are the deets on Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Waterproof Concealer $22.00:

What it is:
A waterproof concealer powered by Amazonian clay, nature's most perfect ingredient, to balance and soothe skin.

What it does:
This waterproof, full-coverage concealer combines the calming properties of vitamins A and E and the soothing quality of Amazonian clay to nourish while completely masking discolorations and imperfections for better looking skin. Amazonian clay acts as a total skin balancer by reducing dryness and flakiness while improving the appearance and texture of skin for longer, waterproof wear!

The buildable full-coverage formula is rich in pigments for truer color without a heavy or tacky texture, making it ideal for hiding any and all imperfections from dark circles to blemishes to redness. Designed for brush-free application, blending this creamy concealer with your finger allows the formula to melt into the skin for an easy application and opaque airbrushed effect.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
– Parabens
– Synthetic Fragrances
– Synthetic Dyes
– Phthalates

What else you need to know:
Skinvigorating™ benefits come from: Amazonian clay, a nutrient-rich, multitasking and total-skin-balancing clay that reduces dryness and flakiness, improves skin clarity, elasticity, firmness, and texture while removing oil from the skin's surface for smooth application and wear; Vitamin E, a natural preservative that also acts as an anti-inflammatory emollient and protects against free radical damage; and mineral pigments known to soothe and soften the skin.

My results:

The creamy consistency of Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Waterproof Concealer makes blending a breeze. And as you blend this wonderful concealer out, it has a finish very similar to that of a liquid foundation. Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Waterproof Concealer provides an optimal combination of coverage without covering up.

I can spot use this concealer under my eyes to hide a night of less-than-perfect sleep.  Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Waterproof Concealer also serves as the perfect spot concealer when I have a flare up from an uninvited visitor (aka pimples).  The best part though, is that when I use this concealer in lieu of a foundation—just dotting and blending where I need it—my skin looks like perfection!

A little goes a very long way, and Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Waterproof Concealer lives up to it's claim of lasting for hours.  From application first thing in the morning, until I remove it at night, this concealer goes the distance.  Yet, it does not look like I am wearing a face full of makeup.

Additionally, I suffer from occasional bouts with acne, and often times, makeup will exacerbate breakouts.  Such is not a case with Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Waterproof Concealer.  

The color is a perfect match for my brown skin, and it can be a task finding makeup that looks "natural" for my deeper brown skin tone.
