Posted on: November 29, 2011

When finding a concealer to tackle your particular skin concern, it can seem like a daunting task. Whether you have issues with dark circles, redness, or blemishes, these are some of the best concealers for all of these skin concerns.

Dark Circles

Dark circles under your eyes can make you look older and tired, even if you’ve had a full night’s rest. For those who are prone to dark circles, you need a concealer specifically designed to tackle even the worst cases. Concealers that contain light-diffusing ingredients are a great bet, as are ones that help reduce the overall appearance of puffiness. Ones to try: Tarte Dark Circle Defense Natural Under Eye Corrector, $32, Sephora; Jane Iredale Active Light Under-Eye Concealer, $27, Beauty.com; Almay Wake Up Under Eye Concealer, $7, Drugstores.



A concealer with green or yellow undertones can help counteract redness and allow you to fake a flawless complexion. If you’re tired of suffering from red, irritated skin, here are a few good concealers to try: Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage, $28, LauraMercier.com; Maybelline Corrector Concealer, $5.99, Ulta.com; Boots Botanics Complexion Refining Anti-Redness Concealer Stick, $9.99, Drugstores.



When concealing blemishes, use a light hand to avoid drawing even more attention to the problem. A concealer with skin-clearing ingredients can also help treat existing acne while covering it up. Ones to try: Neutrogena SkinClearing Blemish Concealer, $7.99, Drugstores; Murad Acne Treatment Concealer, $21, Sephora; Dermablend Smooth Indulgence Concealer, $21, DermStore.com.
