Secret Weapon Concealer Used On Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Shoots

Mary's Concealer: Lancôme Effacernes Concealer / Clinique Stay Matte Sheer Pressed Powder
In June's issue of Allure, we came across an article on Tracy Murphy, a makeup artist who has prepped Sports Illustrated swimsuit models for shoots for 11 years. She apparently uses a concealer on the models that we have been a fan of for a couple of years now - Lancôme Effacernes Protective Undereye Concealer ($32). For a decade, Murphy reportedly has relied on this concealer for its waterproof and sweat-resistant powers. What is nice about the concealer is that the coverage is pretty natural - basically medium. A thicker formula might look more cakey when wet. From personal experience, we would not go so far as to say it's completely waterproof, but it is extremely water resistant. In colder months, we like to use a more full coverage undereye concealer, but in the summer, it's better to opt for a medium formula like this one. As you can see in the photo above (Mary is wearing the Medium Bisque shade), it does a nice job of hiding dark circles and evening out skintone. If this is what Murphy turns to for SI shoots, you know it must be good.

  1. Hi there!
    I have a question for you! I am about to run out of my jar of Jane Iredale concealer. I've used it for about 10 years...it has two colors you blend...and is great for pale skin and massive dark (black) undereye circles. Do you have recommendations for extreme dark circles? Remedies? Creams? Very best concealers that don't age you 10 years with creasing? Application?

    I love your blog!

  2. Hello! I just found your blog and you girls are gorgeous! I love all of your pictures and reviews. I had a question-wondering what foundation you normally wear? Mary, you seem to have a really flawless coverage and it's very even and poreless. I would love to see a full face routine blog post! Thanks guys! Faith

    1. Hi Faith! Thanks so much for following us! We both love L'Oreal Bare Naturale Powdered Mineral foundation. Instead of wearing it alone, we actually dust it on very lightly as a powder after we've applied a bit of undereye concealer and Garnier Fructis BB Cream. We skip liquid foundation in the summer because it's too heavy. In cooler months, we like Clinique Superbalanced foundation and Laura Mercier liquid foundation. We have some other good suggestions too, depending on your skin type. We will totally do a more thorough post very soon! xo, Mary

  4. Tour is always exciting and interesting. If it is night tour, it is more enjoyable. Night tour in new york city is really magical . The high line, a public park built on a historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan’s west side is mind blowing. New york’s night harbor cruise, with awesome views of New york’s unforgettable skyline as well as opportunities to take up-close and personal photos of status of liberty removes the monotonous of life. Anyone can see the beauty of Chinatown, soho and Green village by the luxurious coach. The tour will continue to gran central station and Rockefeller center which is exceptional for you. At last one can enjoy the sight of 50th street of New york city at night, you can’t believe your eyes. So everyone should go on a tour like New-york city in any age.
