There's honestly nothing better than meticulously blending your concealer into a natural, neutral, realistic-looking mask, only to look in the mirror an hour later and see that it has settled into every invisible fine line and crease that you never knew existed. IT'S LITERALLY THE BEST. SO MUCH FUN!
But in case you're not actually psychotic and would prefer for your concealers to stay put, then we've got you covered (literally) with these five anti-aging concealers that not only work to plump fine lines, but disguise them in the process. And that, folks, is our real definition of fun.
Maybelline Superstay Better Skin Concealer + Corrector, $9
The name on this product isn’t an exaggeration: The brightening concealer (it’s filled with spot-lightening antioxidants) has a doe-tip applicator that makes it easy to dot and blend around the corners of your eyes, while the dimethicone helps it stay smooth on even deeply wrinkled skin.
Benefit Boi-ing Hydrating Concealer, $20
You can’t trust everything you read on the internet, unless what you read is 1,600 glowing reviews praising this little tube of concealer, which has an inner core of sheer-coverage pigment surrounded by a hydrating, vitamin E-spiked primer. The result: A lightweight concealer than can be swiped on alone in the morning or on top of your current concealer throughout the day to touch up any creasing or sliding that naturally comes with having fine lines.
BareMinerals BareSkin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer, $21
If there’s one thing BareMinerals is good at doing, it’s creating makeup that looks airbrushed on virtually all skin types. And this serum-based concealer is no exception, thanks to its mix of line-plumping glycerides and mineral-coated pigments that essentially break over your skin to leave a soft, diffused finish under your eyes.
Sephora Collection Bright Future Gel Serum Concealer, $14
A gel concealer?! What sorcery is this?! Uh, the sorcery that allows you to look like you actually went to bed at a reasonable time last night, courtesy of a hefty dose of pineapple ceramides (hey, just trust). And because it’s so featherweight, you can actually layer it on and blend it out to get the buildable coverage you need, all without fear of it settling into creases or fine lines by noon. Oh, and did we mention the best part? This little tube of magic comes in 26 beautifully diverse shades porcelain to deep.
Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Concealer, $42
This super-creamy concealer is infused with a plant-derived serum that makes it glide over tiny lines without caking up. Plus, it comes in 15 shades, most of which are specifically formulated for medium-to-dark skin tones, which shouldn’t be an anomaly, and yet, it is.
