Of all the beauty flaws out there, nothing is as bad as having a visible beard shadow!
Your best bet is to get rid of your beard through laser hair removal or electrolysis. If you can’t do that you’ll need a close shave and a good concealer.
There are a lot of options out there, but here are the top 3 beard concealers I recommend:
1. Dermablend Cover Crème
The “mother” of all beard covers and a TG favorite, Dermablend Cover Crème ($32) is heavy enough to cover scars, tattoos, bruises, and beard shadows. On the down side, it’s very thick and can look cakey. Dermablend is best for evenings or low light situations when you can get away with heavy makeup.
2. MAC Full Coverage Foundation
MAC Full Coverage Foundation ($26) is another TG favorite. It’s a cake foundation that offers great coverage and is used by pros for beauty photography. The MAC foundation is lighter than Dermablend, so it looks more natural.
Note: MAC Full Coverage Foundation is only available in MAC Pro stores or by calling 1-800-866-6464 to order.
Colortration Super Concealing Liquid Makeup ($37) is another great option for covering your beard shadow. In fact, many girls swear by it. Colortration is a highly concentrated liquid concealer, so it goes on smoother and looks more natural than crème covers.
Your best bet is to order Colortration’s six color trial kit ($17) so you can find your best shade. Order online or by calling 1-888-350-4505.
No matter which concealer you use, keep these two things in mind:
- Pat (don’t rub!) the concealer on.
- Apply powder between concealer layers.
