The 15 Best Concealers to Camouflage Dark Circles featured image

If there’s one goal I have when applying makeup, it’s to cover my dark circles. And while I’m confident eye cream is working its magic to make my under-eyes look smoother, less puffy and brighter over time, I’m also looking for a quick fix.

The good news is no shortage of great under-eye concealers on the market. Of course, finding the best one is entirely based on personal preference—some may prefer a creamy formula that highlights, while others want a matte, blurring effect. Narrowing down the options can be daunting, so allow us to round up the best of the best in the world of concealer for dark circles.

15 concealers that do it all to camouflage dark circles

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Full Coverage Concealer ($35)

The first time I tried this ultra-pigmented concealer my jaw dropped. The purple hue I had gotten used to seeing under my eyes virtually disappeared.

Skin-loving ingredients like peptides, hyaluronic acid and collagen also help smooth and soften fine lines in the eye area.
