A long-lasting, crease-resistant concealer is a makeup bag staple. And if you’re living that day-to-night lifestyle, not just any kind will do — you need a waterproof concealer. Ahead, find the three reasons waterproof concealers knock all other face makeup products out of the park — as well as our favorite picks.
Because It Won’t Budge
Not only is it waterproof, sweat-proof and virtually everything-proof, but it’ll keep uneven skin, fine lines and dark circles away all day long. Waterproof concealer will keep your eyes looking big no matter how little sleep you’re getting or how active you’ll be throughout the day.
Did you cover a pimple with foundation and concealer hoping it would magically disappear … only to see it rear its ugly head once again only moments later? That’s because your makeup needs to have some serious staying power, and a waterproof concealer topped with a dab of setting powder will have everyone saying, what pimple? (We’re serious!)
Waterproof Makeup Is the New Thing
More and more, waterproof makeup — from foundation and concealer to mascara, blush, lipstick and more — is popping up everywhere as women are looking for cosmetics that will actually stay put. These new formulas will finally allow you to spend the day out in the sun, in the office or out with your gals without having to check your reflection every chance you get.
NYX Professional Makeup Gotcha Concealer
If you’re searching for an excellent drugstore alternative to a fancy concealer, this NYX Gotcha formula is the one for you. As the name suggests, this stuff will really give you fool proof blemish coverage.
Maybelline Fit Me Concealer
Another amazing drugstore alternative, Maybelline Fit Me is the OG go-to for covering up your under eye circles or red areas. It’s super creamy, glides nicely onto the skin and blends flawlessly to even out skin tone.
It Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye Concealer
Probably one of our favorite concealers of all time, Bye Bye Undereye is one of the creamiest, highly-pigmented formulas we’ve ever gotten our hands on. Your undereye circles will seriously be a thing of the past when you start using this baby daily — we guarantee it.
Urban Decay All Nighter Concealer
This concealer lives completely up to its name — it really does last all day into night, and pats gently into the skin no matter your texture or type.
