I love a good under eye concealer. My under eye area tends to get really dark because let’s be honest here, who gets the luxury of a good night, 8-hour sleep?! I typically only get less than 6 hours of sleep every night and I consider a good under eye concealer my savior! I’ve tried many under eye concealers; while some have been utter disappointments, I’ve found real gems that I highly recommend!
Bare Minerals Correcting Concealer in Medium 1 – This concealer is very smooth and easy to pat onto the under eye area. I find this to give a medium yet buildable coverage that lasts a good amount of time when set with a powder. I love that despite how creamy this is, it does not get cakey throughout the day.
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser for Dark Circles in Medium – This is a classic drugstore concealer for the under eye that I love and always keep on my stash. This product is just so damn good! The formula is very thin and blendable. It has really good coverage and is quite brightening under the eye. The only thing I hate about this concealer is the packaging – the sponge that comes with it gets really grubby.
Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in Medium – This concealer works like a dream not only on the under eye area but also on other areas of the face that need concealing. The formula on this one is a tad bit thicker than the Instant Age Rewind Eraser but is still very blendable. I like blending out this concealer with a beauty blender because I find that that gives the most natural finish. I love how it effectively it conceals and at the same time brightens the under eye area as well. I’d say that if I were to pick between the Fit Me Concealer and Instant Age Rewind Eraser, I’d pick the Fit Me Concealer for sure!
MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in NW30 – An oldie but a goodie! I fell in love with this concealer years ago and up to this day, I always go back to this! This is such a good concealer for under the eyes and for the other areas of the face. It has a thick consistency and its coverage is really full on. It is also very long-lasting even on very oily skin! On days when I feel like my skin is looking good, I only use this concealer under my eyes and on some spots, set it with powder and I’m good to go.
Laura Mercier High Coverage Concealer for Under Eye in No. 4 – Out of all the concealers in my top 5, this one has the thickest consistency. It’s so thick that I find it hard to pat onto the skin with fingers or to blend it with a brush without tugging on the under eye area so much. I apply this concealer with a damp beauty blender by gently patting it on the under eye area. The coverage for this is high – it covers even the most zombie-like under eye area! I know it says that it is an under eye concealer but I find that it also effectively covers spots and any discoloration on the face.
