She’s worked on the faces of Shanina Shaik, Sam Harris, Megan Gale and Jessica Mauboy - oh, and she’s an accomplished author and has held the title of Makeup Artist of the Year four times. No biggie. It’s just another day in the life of Australian makeup artist extraordinaire, Rae Morris. So with a portfolio like that, you’d want to know what her go-to products are, right?
I did some digging and as it turns out, one of Rae’s favourites is Kryolan’s Dermacolor Concealer - which is coincidentally also a fave of Kim Kardashian and Wayne Goss. The best part? You can get your hands on it for under $30.

What Sets This Concealer Apart?Known for their extensive professional range, Kryolan is used heavily in the makeup industry and is often spotted behind the scenes of shoots and shows. Kryolan's range is known for its long-lasting, densely pigmented products - and the Dermacolor Concealer is no different.
It’s a wax-based concealer for full & specialised coverage
The full coverage pigment combined with the formula makes it super versatile
Packaged in stick form, it’s simple to apply & carry around on the go
Great for concealing under the eyes, as well as blemishes & other imperfections
This concealer can also be used on areas of the body
It’s very blendable so it can be sheered out for lighter coverage
This formula can be waterproofed when set with a Fixing Powder
This concealer is ideal for pro MUA’s working in film, fashion & bridal artistry
It contains soothing & anti-bacterial ingredients, plus it’s suitable for sensitive skin
Pro Tip: For a super seamless finish, I recommend prepping your skin properly prior to application. This is a high coverage formula, therefore you probably want to use a hydrating primer underneath for smooth application if you have normal-dry skin.
Before | After
The Ingredients:It's not often that professional grade makeup contains skin-loving ingredients - but as this range is both sensitive skin friendly, and anti-allergy certified. Unfortunately it's not vegan-friendly, but it is cruelty-free. The shade range we carry is suited to light-medium skin tones. So what does it contain?
Vitamin E: an antioxidant which protects the skin from free radical damage, acting as a protective anti-ageing ingredient
Beeswax: contains a natural anti-inflammatory which helps to calm & soothe the skin
Candelilla: locks in moisture & prevents the product from drying out. It also allows for smoother, more blendable application
What's Everyone Saying?
★★★★★ I cannot live without Kryolan Dermacolor - Becca Gilmartin (Australian Makeup Artist)
"I can conceal ANYTHING with this range and in my editorial work. I even use Dermacolor for under my eyes, it's an absolute essential for me with its high intensity pigment. A paramedical product that has so many uses! You can deal with anything in the morning armed with Dermacolor.”
★★★★★ Best concealer for travel - SmileySal"I'm on the road working long hours for blocks of time and I love this product for this. it comes in the lipstick-like packaging which takes up almost no space and the product is the most dense concealer I've ever come across. It ACTUALLY covers my under eye bags! Love it."
★★★★★ My #1 cannot live without product! - Blublond"I have suffered with mild acne and pimples since my teen years (I am now 52 years of age) and have always felt the desperate need to cover my skin with something! I discovered this product in my early twenties and I cannot live without it. I wear makeup everyday I leave the house, and this gives me a flawless complexion. It must be used sparingly and correctly - it takes practice. If you have imperfect skin like I do, I cannot recommend it highly enough. Confidence saving!"
