Concealers are makeup versions of my BFF. These tiny tubes literally keep all my secrets safe- like just how late did I sleep last night or how many glasses of wine I had the night before and the like . BUT, finding a good undereye concealer is a forever struggle cos you want something lightweight, with good coverage, that is natural looking and effective at reducing dark circles. Most concealer do either two of these- i.e they either reduce dark circles or they look natural but not really both – except my favourite Nars Creamy Concealer which does do both. My sister swears by the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer which she says is unbelievable. But i quizzed some makeup artists on which ones they think are awesome and a drugstore brand as well.
Makeup artist Jasmeet Kapany reveals, “I like the NARS creamy concealer. It has an orange undertone and omits the need for a corrector. It’s a one step solution for dark circles. Maybelline instant Age Rewind would be my pick in the affordable category. The shade medium has yellow undertones which works well with Indian skintones. The concealer does not settle in fine lines and gives a really smooth finish and glow.”

Makeup artist Anjie Gogna says, “The one concealer that never leaves my makeup kit is Kryolan’s Dermacolor Camouflague Creme in the shade D5. It’s highly pigmented so a little product goes a long way, giving you amazing value for money. Some shades have a nice peach to orange undertone, thus it works amazingly well to correct and conceal dark under eye circles which a very common issue we Indians have to deal with. Shade D4 works will for light skin tones. D5 works well for wheatish to medium tan complexions. The shade range is so vast, I’m sure you’ll find one for your unique skin tone. One drugstore brand that I like using is Maybelline FitMe Concealer. The medium shade works amazingly well with Indian skin tones because of the slightly peach undertone. It also comes with a built-in wand which makes applying super easy. This instantly brightens the face and makes my look well rested and fresh.”

The Mac Pro Longwear Concealer is another super solid concealer which has very high coverage and probably lasts longer than any other concealer out there. It has a little pump dispenser and is pretty solid to use and a makeup artist favourite.
