If there’s one item in my makeup bag that gets the most use, it’s got to be concealer. This versatile beauty wonder pretty much does it all: covers up blemishes, works as an eyeshadow base and highlighter, brightens up and even “fills” sunken under-eyes in a pinch. These days, many concealers don’t just conceal, but also treat and nourish the skin. Ahead, we rounded up eight formulas that will do double-duty for your beauty routine.

Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector ($32)

Ultra-fine light-reflecting illuminators make this rich, luminescent cream stand out from the rest—literally. In addition to its power to brighten up the under-eye area, this corrector also helps smooth fine lines. The backlight technology creates a “lift” effect and reflects light to draw attention away from lines and wrinkles.

ILIA True Skin Serum Concealer ($30)

ILIA’s mission to protect and revive skin, and this concealer from the clean beauty brand definitely pulls through. The lightweight, creamy formula is enriched with good-for-you ingredients like vitamin C, mastic (a resin from a tree from the Greek island of Chios) and albizia julibrissin bark extract (aka Persian silk tree) to help mattify and protect skin from environmental damage as well as reduce lines and puffiness.

Physician’s Formula Natural Defense Total Coverage Concealer SPF 30 ($12)

Not only does this cushion-tipped concealer protect against sun rays (it contains SPF 30), but also blue light and pollution, too. And it doesn’t stop there: dab a bit under your eyes to help reduce the signs of aging, wrinkles, blemishes, and redness, in addition to dark circles.

Erborian BB Crayon ($26)

You don’t necessarily have to color inside the lines with this “crayon”. Inspired by the K-beauty brand’s Créme, the multi-purpose product can be used as a concealer, eyeshadow base, or all-over coverage stick. Made with ginseng extract and vegetal squalane, it protects the skin and keeps it hydrated. Vitamin E, sunflower oil and silica powder also does its part to mattify and nourish the skin.

Catrice Cosmetics Slim’matic Camouflage Stick ($7)

Although this vegan concealer is slim in size, it sure is mighty. Infused with vitamin E and jojoba oil, it nourishes the skin while providing medium coverage. Another plus: it’s water- and sweat-resistant.
