8 Concealers Editors Use To Hide Everything


Being a woman can be tough. Between PMS, periods and, for some, childbirth, we suffer all manner of horrors men will never endure. So, excuse us if we need to dab a bit of concealer on our faces to hide the evidence of sleepless nights or general burnout and discomfort. In fact, we thank the makeup gods for it on the regular. Here, our editors share their favorite cover-up formulas at every price point. Stock up and revel in the glory.


Cover Up

Photo Focus Concealer


Wet n Wild

"When my checking account can't quite keep up with NARS, I opt for this concealer, which easily passes as a high-end product. It glides on, stays on all day and can even function as an eye shadow primer."

—Samantha McDonald, News Editor

HD Pro Conceal


L.A. Girl

"This concealer is so affordable, it sounds too good to be true. But after trying it myself, I realized it does an amazing job, specifically with uneven texture. It really helps you achieve that airbrushed makeup look."

—Andrea Navarro, Associate Beauty Editor

Studio Finish SPF 35 Concealer



"I've used this since high school and it reliably stays put, blends well and comes in a fantastic range of shades.”

—Nicky Deam, Editorial Director

Studio Finish SPF 35 Concealer



"This concealer is a miracle worker—it covers absolutely every imperfection. Sometimes, when my skin is extra wrecked, I cheat and use it as a foundation."

—Erin Nicole, Senior Lifestyle Editor

BareSkin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer


bare minerals

"A concealer and serum in one, this is my favorite for coverage that doesn't look caked on thanks to the hydrating factor."

Laura Lajiness, Fashion Editor

Shape Tape Contour Concealer



"The hype around this product is for real. I have dark circles and really pale skin, and somehow (magic) this concealer makes me look like a human who got a really good night of sleep."

—Allie Flinn, Associate Lifestyle Editor

Amazing Concealer To Go


Amazing Cosmetics

"I'm prone to unpredictable and very noticeable breakouts, so I need a concealer that can cover up quickly and efficiently. This formula is a dream in that it goes on like second skin, perfectly camouflaging blemishes so I forget they're even there!"

—Angela Melero, Managing Editor

Soft Matte Complete Concealer



"Somehow NARS has figured out a way to make a concealer that is super-high coverage while also lightweight and matte in texture. My dark circles are a thing of the past."

—Stephanie Montes, Beauty Director

Radiant Creamy Concealer



"Whether you want to conceal a blemish or dark circles, this will do it. I've been wearing it for the past three years and I can't use anything else. It's buildable and has the best finish that's creamy and never drying."

—Amy Lee, Fashion Editor
