The best concealers for every skin issue (zits, bruises and more)
We’ve come to learn that our skin is a jerk. It loves gifting us with a bright red beamer before important events, it gets a kick out of telling the world we partied too hard with dark rings around our eyes, and it loves stumping us with random red splotches, dry patches, and hives we don’t know how to treat.
But we’re not going to sit back and let our skin take advantage of us like that. We’re done with being the runt of all its jokes. 2016 is going to be different.
No matter what your common skin conundrum is, there’s a concealer our there that will hide that MF until it’s well and healed. Need help? Ahead, the best concealers for your undereye circles, scars, pimples, random red spots, and dry patches, so the annoying little tricks your skin plays on you can stay good and hidden.
1. Under-eye circles
A recurring favourite among editors, Clé de Peau Beauté will change the way you feel about your under-eye circles. This simple stick is enhanced with a “revitalizing moisture complex” which helps to keep the eye area smooth and hydrated. It provides maximum coverage and blends flawlessly–never creases. The best part? It lasts a super long time.

5. Dry patches
When you have random dry patches, you’ll need a concealer to ride the redness while keeping the spot well hydrated. Dior’s Diorskin Nude Skin Perfecting Hydrating Concealer is intensely moisturizing (the formula actually incudes mineralized water!) and will leave the area smooth, hydrated and radiant.
