By now, you probably know that concealer is a must for your makeup bag. But just because you know it’s a necessity doesn’t mean you’re using the right formula for your unique needs. The same way we always stress the importance of customizing your face wash or moisturizer to address your skin care concerns — whether you have oily skin, combination skin, dry skin or other — the same goes for makeup products.
With makeup, your skin type plays a role when you’re choosing your products, but you may have other concerns that you want to address, or even cover. That’s why paying close attention to what your concealer can do is important for achieving the look you desire. If you’re on the hunt for the best concealer for your needs, we have you covered. Ahead, we’re breaking down the best L’Oréal Paris concealers for your next makeup look, based on different skin concerns.
Best Concealer for Dark Spots
If you want a concealer that will cover even the most pronounced blemishes (and even cover tattoos), turn your attention to the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Full Wear Concealer Waterproof, Full Coverage. Aside from offering full coverage, this pick also has a wide shade range with 25 colors in total. It features an extra-large applicator for maximum coverage in a single swipe with a flawless matte finish. Apply it directly onto your skin and blend with your finger, a brush, or a makeup blender.
Best Concealer for Dark Circles
Skin care-makeup hybrids are highly popular as of late, which is why a concealer with skin care benefits may be on your radar. The L’Oréal Paris True Match Eye Cream in a Concealer, 0.5% Hyaluronic Acid is a concealer-eye cream — yes, two products in one. The formula contains hyaluronic acid and is meant to provide long-lasting hydration while simultaneously covering dark circles instantly.
This is an ideal option for those who love to streamline their routine with multi-tasking products. Dab it around the eye area or blemishes and gently smooth it out with your fingers, brush, or a makeup sponge to blend onto your skin.
Best Concealer for Mature Skin
Those with mature skin may find that they need makeup products formulated specifically for their skin type. That’s where our L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Makeup Radiant Concealer with Hydrating Serum comes in. The formula contains a hydrating serum and glycerin, working to hydrate and illuminate mature skin while minimizing imperfections.
Dot the concealer onto coverage areas or under your eyes and pat it with your finger or a makeup sponge to blend it in.
Best Concealer for Color-Correcting
Concealer isn’t just for covering up. It can also be used to neutralize areas of discoloration on your face. That’s where the best color-correcting concealers, like our L’Oréal Paris True Match Color Correcting Crayon, come in.
This option features five pastel shades that are meant to camouflage common concerns like dark circles, hyperpigmentation, and dark spots. Apply it under your foundation to targeted areas and follow up with a brightening concealer if you desire.
