There's no worse feeling than realizing the acne you spent hours trying to cover up is peeking through—or your concealer is flaking off (or, worse, separating). Let it be known: We are in an age of acne positivity, so if you don’t feel like covering up, great! But for the moments you do, it’s important to choose a concealer that fits your coverage needs. Whether you want to cover up the redness or are craving full coverage, the type of formula you use is important for a cover-up that not even wearing a mask can budge. Some long-lasting and full-coverage concealers can inflame and even worsen already-sensitive acne, so your first step should always be to look at the ingredients to make sure your concealer is non-comedogenic. We cut out some of the work for you and listed our favorite concealers for acne coverage and acne scars.
