We love a sexy, high-impact makeup look as much as the next diva. But before you apply the smoky eyes, before you slick on the sexy gloss, you’ve got to start with a clean canvas–ie, a flawless complexion. If you don’t come buy one naturally (and who does, except for maybe Kelly Rowland), a great concealer is your friend. For our money, it’s all about Laura Mercier Secret Concealer ($22, Bloomingdales.com)! The super-creamy cover up has a yellow undertone, which gives the most natural finish on Black complexions, and the #5 and #6 hues work on virtually every brown skintone. Simply use your index finger to dot and blend the concealer on undereyes circles and dark spots. Voila, picture-perfect skin!
