The 5 Best Concealers

The right concealer does more than just hide dark circles. It corrects pigmentation imperfections too.

A full face of beautifully applied, high-quality makeup can actually make you look less attractive if you choose the wrong colours. It’s especially important to choose the right shades for your face makeup. You’ve likely seen a TV personality whose skin appeared orange or green on camera.

Whether you want to cover up blueness or fake a full night’s sleep, finding a formula that doesn’t look dreadfully caked on can be tough. But we have an under eye concealer match for you. These are the best concealers for dark circles and spots, according to makeup artists.

1.Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer
The concealer that changed the face of a nation (pun absolutely intended), Shape Tape basically sets the standard for what a full-coverage concealer can be. It is the definition of full coverage so you can hide dark circles, hyperpigmentation, and any imperfections on the skin, but it’s still creamy enough to wear under the eyes while looking (and feeling) comfortable all day.

2.Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer
It’s a creamy concealer in an easy-to-apply chubby stick crayon. Just dot it on under eyes and blend with your finger. The collection was recently upgraded to included 6 more shades (!) — and each one is infused with light-reflecting pearls and the coverage is totally buildable. Start with medium coverage and work your way up to full — if needed.

3.Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer
This liquid formula is one of the most sworn-by concealers of every makeup artist in the universe, thanks to its full-coverage, yet sheer-looking finish that’s like a shot of espresso to your eyes. The bendable formula comes in 22 shades, so all skin tones can cover their dark circles and zits with aplomb.

4.Milk Makeup Flex Concealer
This sheer, lightweight concealer does the work of lightly covering redness and dark circles, while also helping to soothe irritated skin with a dose of anti-inflammatory chamomile and hydrating blue lotus. If you have oily skin, try setting this one with powder so it doesn’t crease.

5.Glossier Stretch Concealer
No surprises here: Glossier’s concealer has a dewy finish that’s practically imperceptible as “makeup”, regardless of how much you pile on. Despite its lightweight, slippery feel, its brightening powers rival some of the thicker, heavier-duty formulas on the market.
