Why I'm Grabbing This Hourglass Concealer Every Single Morning While Social Distancing

Now, I'm not the person who spends an hour putting on makeup when I have no plans, but I'm also not the person who breezily walks out the door bare-faced to walk my dog, either. I nearly always apply tinted moisturizer or BB cream because I consider those to be skin-care-based choices that happen to make me feel better, too. When I was able to travel, I would never take off without one of those two items (and, honestly, probably foundation as well).
On my last trip, I vowed to not bring any base makeup with me and rely only on the Hourglass Vanish Airbrush Concealer ($34) that was released earlier this year. I was off to Paraty, Brazil, where it's hot and humid and the downpours are frequent. None of those things is in the friend group of a full face of makeup, so I figured why not leave my temptations at home and see how I felt when I didn't wear foundation or a close substitute?
As it turns out, that experiment went better than ever . . . and since I returned (and shortly thereafter began social distancing), this concealer has become my one work-from-home essential, the first item I put on each morning and the only base makeup my face has seen in weeks.
Here's exactly why I fell in love with this Hourglass concealer — and how its partnering concealer brush made all the difference, too.
