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.
