But finding a concealer that hits on all of these points is easier said than done—right?

Ahead, you’ll find the tried-and-true concealers our team keeps well-stocked in our makeup bags. From drugstore concealers like the E.l.f. Camo Concealer to more luxurious finds like the Clé de Peau Beauté Concealer, these products are set to solve all of your complexion woes. We even picked the brains of pro makeup artists for their favorites, so you better believe this list has the best of the best. 

What to Look For in Concealer

Of course, your definition of the “best” concealer really depends on your beauty needs. “Brands do a great job of really laying out what to expect from their formulas,” pro makeup artist Ehlie Luna tells Marie Claire. “What you should look for depends on your skin type, concerns, and the look you’re going for.” 

For example, if your under-eyes are dry, Luna says to make sure your concealer is a hydrating formula. Or, go with a full coverage concealer if hiding spots is your priority. As a last tip, Luna says, “When concealing around the face you may even want to opt for a cream concealer, while a liquid texture can work better under the eyes.”
