Under-eye concealer is like the undergarment of makeup. At its best, it’s undetectable and gives skin a seamless, flawless finish. At its worst, it’s cakey and it looks really obvious. The difference between a good and bad concealer ultimately comes down to finding the right type for you; finding the perfect texture and shade and applying it correctly will determine just how good your concealer looks — and how well it covers those dark circles.

From creams to pens, light-reflecting to full-coverage, there are a dizzying amount of formulas to choose from. Below, we rounded up our favorite under-eye concealers that can help you kiss dark circles goodbye.

Best Concealer for a Long-Lasting Look

Dermablend Cover Care Full Coverage Concealer

This full-coverage concealer is perfect for hiding dark circles for up to 24 hours and provides a soft matte finish you’ll love. It’s completely non-comedogenic, making it suitable for all skin types, including oily and acne-prone.

Maybelline New York Super Stay Under Eye Concealer

There’s a reason this concealer is called “super stay.” It really does not budge after application. The formula is waterproof, easy to apply with its paddle applicator and is smudge–resistant, ensuring dark circle coverage for hours on end.
