Finding the perfect undereye concealer is akin to finding a diamond in the rough. And by "the rough," we mean a sea of subpar products that don't blend, look cake-y or crease-y, or straight up don't do the number one job they sell themselves on: concealing. In an effort to help you stop throwing cash at products that aren't doing your undereye area any favors, we asked makeup artists to share their absolute favorites.
"I love this under eye concealer because it offers amazing coverage while still feeling lightweight," says Mary Irwin, an editorial makeup artist whose work has appeared Elle, WWD, and Glamour. "It's like a treatment-meets-concealer, too. The formula has collagen, peptides, hyaluronic acid, and vitamins to nourish your skin while you cover up." All you need is one or two tiny dots of product to cover even the most extreme cases of undereye discoloration.
"I am a huge fan of this concealer — not only because it's super affordable — but because every time I use it, I'm always getting asked what I have on under my eyes," says Brianna Delesparra, a makeup artist and aesthetician based in NYC. "It is a natural coverage liquid concealer — and the best part is, it's an oil-free formula, so it doesn't clog my pores. It is also very easy to blend out, it matches all skin tones, and works for all skin types."
"I like this under eye concealer because it offers creamy, buildable, highly blendable, medium to full coverage and has a pretty natural finish," says makeup artist Courtney Dailey. "Also, I personally am a fan of using a wand for under eye concealing." It comes in 22 shades and is a great complement to the brand's Flawless Fusion foundation.
Delesparra tells us that this four-in-one concealer won her over the day it launched — and it's been true love ever since. "You can conceal, contour, highlight, and retouch with this one product, which offers full coverage and a natural finish for 12 hours. It will not sit in any lines or creases and just leaves you looking flawless," she says. "Also, I love taking pictures when wearing this product because it photographs so well."
