What do you do when your favorite singer is performing on a work night? Or when a weeknight date is going way too well for you to cut it short?  Sometimes, when a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity presents itself, beauty sleep is not an option. Fatigue (or, honestly, that millennial burnout so prevalent in 2019) can give you some serious under-eye blues, but luckily, the right concealer can be your secret weapon. Whether your dark-circles are the aftermath of an all-nighter, hereditary, or the result of an overly acidic diet, put down the sunglasses (or don't) and try anything from our below list of the best concealers that will carry you through this year and beyond.



This Japanese brand is one of my all-time favorites. Just like all of their other products, this concealer delivers. Although it only comes in three shades, the tones that work with these will thank their lucky stars. The coverage is medium-to-full and never creases or dries cakey.

The dewy and glowy finish of Glossier’s Stretch Concealer is perfect for any daytime look if you need that just-enough coverage that won’t hide your freckles. This buildable and natural-looking concealer works well with acne-prone complexions, as its light formula “inspired by skin” keeps pores unclogged while still providing enough coverage to do the trick.

This is one of my desert island products, and not just because it comes with a cute brush and cool-tip applicator. Sisley’s Phyto-Cernes Eclat is bad (in a good way) and seriously bougie. The tube of product lasts a really long time, even with everyday applications. I love that the salmon tone of shade “2” cancels out even my darkest of days.

The award-winning Radiant Creamy Concealer lasts up to 16 hours, comes in 30 different shades, and is ideal for all skin types. This full-coverage product combines the best of both worlds. Infused with a multi-active botanical blend, it does more than just “cover up": it also hydrates, helps reduce redness, and promotes the skin’s moisture retention.

This concealer uses pure pigment, so it’s definitely full coverage. The packaging advises using an amount of product equivalent to one grain of rice per eye—believe these instructions. Make sure to prime eyes with a hydrating eye cream or serum because this highly pigmented product runs on the very dry side. Recommended application: A damp beauty blender and patience.

Sensual Skin Enhancer, $48, available at Sephora


Marc Jacobs' stick concealer is designed like a lipstick, making it easy to apply without wasting any of its precious content. It provides full coverage while remaining lightweight, working well over wrinkles and under-eye creases. Its thick and resilient texture is perfect for hot weather, as it won’t let your sweat wash it off your face. 

Accomplice Concealer and Touch-Up Stick, $32, available at Marc Jacobs



I don’t typically like sponge concealers, but this one changed my mind. It’s super easy to apply and blend on-site, so it’s perfect for a tiny overnight clutch. I use it all over my face and under-eyes for a necessary spot-treatment boost.

Magic Away Concealer, $32 Available at Charlotte Tilbury



A clean beauty staple, RMS’s concealer is perfect if you’re looking for medium, flexible coverage and brightening. Those who have a sensitivity to coconut oil or are prone to break-outs, beware: coconut oil is a main ingredient. If your skin loves coconuts as much as you do, enjoy (thoroughly).

“Un” Cover Up, $36 Available at RMS Beauty



A little can go a long way with YSL’s Touche Éclat High Cover Radiance Concealer. It’s the kind of concealer that you can use without any other makeup and look like you just came back from a ten-day spa retreat in Arizona. Its patented formula works to reflect light away from the eyes to erase signs of fatigue and instantly brightens up the face.

You know you can trust Bad Gal RiRi to have the fix for a wild night with a few too many. The last time I took a red-eye flight, I looked like I had just gone 10 rounds with Mayweather. This full-coverage matte concealer literally worked like a magic eraser. Did I mention it comes in 50 shades? Yes, FIFTY.

Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Concealer, $26, available at Sephora
