If you’ve ever marveled over Gigi Hadid’s makeup, chances are celeb MUA Erin Parsons was responsible. Erin’s go-to concealer? The Maybelline Fit Me Concealer, $7.

It’s super easy to blend and provides medium to full coverage without caking or creasing.” She also adds that, “It dries to a satin finish, which keeps the skin fresh, so you never need to set it with powder. Dab on only a tiny amount with your fingertips for flawless skin.”
