Don’t you just love it when someone asks, “Are you tired?” Said literally no one ever. Okay, let’s be real — none of us want to hear that our night owl tendencies (or frankly, just our genetics) are visible to others. In fact, if we have had a full night’s sleep, sometimes our under-eye circles tell a different story. Unless you’re going for a super smoked out blue and purple eye look, erasing those shadows is probably going to be the goal, and finding the right under-eye concealer for dark circles that gives you opaque coverage but doesn’t cake, crease, or settle into fine lines is a major game-changer.
As you already know, concealers work their magic by brightening the under-eye area and reducing the appearance of dark circles, but unfortunately, you probably also know that not all concealers are created equal. With so many different formulas, textures, and finishes on the market, it’s difficult to find a solid concealer that provides sufficient coverage, but actually stays put throughout the day. Not only do you want a concealer to diffuse the appearance of dark circles, but you also don’t want it to crease or emphasize dry patches either.
Because the under-eye region is so delicate (and prone to smudges and fading), we’ve gathered a list of our ten favorite under-eye concealers that will instantly camouflage the visible side effects of a sleepless night or stressful week, for an airbrushed effect without over-drying or creasing. Scroll through below to shop our top pics for full coverage formulas designed just for your under-eyes.
