5 Waterproof Concealers We Love and How to Use ThemJune 23, 2022
If you’ve ever spent half your makeup routine covering up dark circles or correcting redness from a breakout only to have the coverage disappear by the end of the day, you need a waterproof concealer. Some of our favorite full-coverage concealers stay put for up to 24 hours (not that you’ll be wearing concealer that long, but the appeal is promising!).
Keep reading for the concealers our editors love for all-day wear — plus how to use them.
How to Use Waterproof Concealer
For maximum coverage, allow your concealer to dry for several minutes before blending it out with a sponge or concealer brush. To conceal blemishes, we recommend using a small, flat brush to gently pat the concealer on, then setting with a translucent or tinted powder.
