Everyone’s got a little something to cover up. And these concealers will help you do it.


TOTAL CLASSIC: A staple among makeup artists, Lancôme Effacernes Waterproof Long-Lasting Undereye Concealer ($30; disguises imperfections in one to two coats, but never gets cakey.


A SOFT TOUCH: Clarins Instant Concealer ($30;, which includes aloe, is creamy and moisturizing, and leaves a hint of luminosity.


MR. DEPENDABLE: When you want to target a specific little spot, you need a heavily pigmented formula that stays put, like Sonia Kashuk All Covered Up Concealer ($10;


SUN BLOCKER: Fend off future spots and wrinkles around your eyes while veiling past damage with Dior Diorsnow UV Shield BB Eye Creme SPF 20 ($49;


SENSITIVE TYPE: VMV Hypoallergenics Skin-the-Bluff Concealer ($20; is formulated for sensitive, flare-up prone skin. Organic coconut oil makes it both smoothing and soothing.


CULT FAVORITE: “A little goes a long way” is an understatement for Amazing Cosmetics AmazingConcealer ($42;, which affords, yes, amazing, coverage with even the tiniest dab.


MATTE ABOUT YOU: From the Japanese brand famous for its brushes, the new Japonesque Color Velvet Touch Concealer ($20; offers a dry finish that, ironically, can be applied without a brush.
