Hide dark under-eye circles and cover blemishes with our ten best concealers, designed to combat all manner of imperfections.

Under-eye concealers are the best way to combat dark circles and disguise any signs of late nights (or very early mornings).

Your under-eyes are particularly delicate, so concealers that suit this area should be feather-light but still be durable enough to combat shadows, and conceal those pesky lines. Sounds like a tough job. The best concealers for dark circles will even radiate light, keeping your peepers bright all day.

When it comes to choosing an under-eye concealer, tips from us include looking for products that are packed with moisturising properties. A truly indulgent formula with vitamin A and D infusions, Laura Mercier’s Secret Concealer, £18.50, helps fight the effects of dryness and encourages elasticity.

What makes this product even more appealing? It comes in a dinky little pot which is perfect for popping in your handbag for on-the-go touch-ups.

Last year, it celebrated 25 years at the top of the beauty world, and this year it’s still one of our top 10 under concealers. Gliding on as a pen, the £25 YSL Touche Eclat is light and creamy, while still being tough enough to cover up those pesky dark circles.

If it’s a smooth complexion with a radiant glow that you’re after, look no further than MAC’s faithful Pro Longwear Concealer. An added bonus of this £15.50 beauty essential? It can be used as a cover-up for spots too.

We also count Clarins’ Instant Concealer, £21, and Bobbi Brown’s Tinted Eye Brightener, £19.50, are also among our make-up bag musts. You’ll have to keep reading if you want to find out what other under-eye concealers we can’t live without.

Our pick of the best under-eye concealers will help you achieve that flawless, serene look no matter what kind of night you had…

Ready, set, shop! Whether it’s dark circles, fine lines, eye bags or redness you want to conceal – tell Powder your under-eye bugbears as well as your skin tone, skin type and budget and they’ll recommend the concealer that’s best for you.
