NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer ($30)

The newest concealer from NARS, this creamy, peptide-loaded formula works double time to blur the most stubborn of skin imperfections. Even though it feels light on your skin and looks totally natural, it promises not to do a disappearing act midday—a big plus in our book.

Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer ($24)

We know that this vegan concealer works wonders at contouring (hence its name), but we couldn’t get over how well it covered up our under-eye circles, making them literally disappear. Thick enough that it doesn’t budge but creamy enough so that it seamlessly blends into skin, this concealer is a must-have, especially after those late nights.

MAC Pro Longwear Concealer ($22)

There’s nothing worse than leaving the house in the morning looking totally made up, only to have your makeup melt down on you a few hours later. This full-coverage, matte concealer lasts up to 15 hours and can make the darkest of under-eye circles and spots seem as if they don’t exist.

Maybelline New York Instant Age Rewind Dark Circles Treatment Concealer ($10)

Even though this concealer was created to erase dark circles—it totally does—we got wind of the correcting powers of this makeup product when we saw dozens of beauty vloggers use it across their faces to hide just about anything that needs to be concealed. The sponge tip applicator is a major plus, too!

Clé de Peau Beauté Concealer ($70)

A celebrity favorite, this concealing stick does a pretty good job of evening out uneven and imperfect skin. Simply apply it to your skin and blend it out with a brush

Armani Compact Cream Concealer ($43)

Just the thing for isolated spots that you want to conceal thanks to the enclosed miniature brush that lets you spot-treat, this non-cakey concealer goes on flawlessly and lasts. And, it never looks like you have a pound of coverage on your skin.

Kat Von D Lock-It Concealer ($25)

You gotta trust that a makeup line from a famed tattoo artist is going to be one of the most pigmented, full-coverage and water-resistant formulas out there. It’s formulated to cover everything from pimples to tattoos so that no one (but you) really knows what’s under your makeup. 

13 / 15

Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Concealer ($27)

Ever since we first tried out this concealer, it’s been a mainstay in our makeup bag simply because it makes our skin look that much better in a flash. The consistency may be more in line with heavy concealers, but the fact that each of the 14 shades available contains pigments to reflect and diffuse light, algae and amino acids to brighten the skin and stimulate collagen production, and a special elastomer gel to reduce the look of lines and wrinkles, makes this apply-it-straight-from-the-tube concealer a favorite forever.

14 / 15

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye ($24)

Even though this anti-aging concealer was originally designed to cover up the most serious of under-eye circles and bags, its covers-it-all abilities makes this one of the best concealers out there.

Benefit Boi-ing Industrial Strength Full Coverage Concealer ($20)

As if the name alone doesn’t say it all, this potted concealer can conceal serious darkness and shadows in a variety of different shades so there’s something for every skin tone
