The Best Concealers For Covering Dark Circles, Blemishes, And Tattoos!


I think we can all agree when I say that concealer is THE most important makeup we use, specially if like me you have dark circles or any blemish, scar or even tattoo you want to cover. I was going thru my makeup stash, organizing and getting rid of some colors that no longer work for me and decided to share with you all my most used concealer of all times on my self and clients. I will list them in no particular order.

The one thing these concealers all have in common is they carry that perfect peachy tone that is necessary to cancel out (blue) dark circles. The second thing they all have in common is they are super pigmented which means a little bit goes a looooong way. Last but not least they are all available in stores and have a great range of colors...... Now to the breakdown of each one:

  1. Nars Concealer is creamy, long-wearing, crease-resistant, and ultra-light yet opaque helps me achieve a flawless finishI have replaced this concealer twice and for me that a big deal! 
  2. Mac Studio Conceal and Correct palette is perfect to use on my clients, but I purchased one for personal use as well. With this palette I can rest assure to always have the right colors and whats even better it comes with two color correcting colors, the yellow one is great for brightening and the orange for canceling out dark circles. 
  3. Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer.... remember I said a little goes a long way with these concealers, well with this one you definitely want to ha a light hand, or you will be blending forever! 
  4. Kat Von D Lock- it Concealer is my go to for super heavy coverage, like tattoos and scars, for dark circles not so much on me personally but my super oily skin clients RAVE about it. Its super pigmented, water and transfer resistant.
  5. Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit this is my go to for a quick and fuss free makeup application, it blends smoothly. It does a good job at canceling out and brightening my dark circles and blending in with the rest of my face. 
  6. Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer, the name of this product says it all! Its an all in one, conceal and treat your dark circles. I love using this anytime I feel like skipping a few steps in my beauty routine. It cancels out my dark circles and sets fairly quick which helps it not crease. 
The number one question I always get asked is how to avoid creasing, and while these concealers are great if you don't set them (or any) with powder they will move through the day. My next post will be all about setting powders ;)
