Under Eye Concealers
Singapore is ranked second for being the most sleep-deprived country, so it’s no surprise that dark eye circles have become a mainstay.
While we’d love to lighten them by getting our under-eyes tattooed, it’s safer to care for our skin and get more shut-eye during the work week. If your lifestyle prevents you from getting a full eight hours of sleep, turn to these 8 top under-eye concealers to fake a rested look.
1. Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment Concealer (S$19.90)
It won’t rewind the clock, but this cream-to-powder concealer is the next best thing in a tube. The formula contains goji berry and haloxyl to brighten and smooth, so you can use the sponge puff to dab the product under your eyes and blend.
2. Kat Von D Beauty Lock-It Concealer Crème (S$40)
If you’re a fan of Kat Von D’s Lock-It Foundation, you’ll love its eye-brightening sidekick. Like the foundation, this moisturising cream concealer is dries to a comfortable matte finish without settling into fine lines. Its buildable, pigmented formula is also able to cover tattoos.
3. IT Cosmetics CC+ Eye Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream (S$44)
Sun damage can worsen dark circles, which is why IT Cosmetics has given their creamy, full coverage concealer a touch of SPF 50. The colour-correcting pigments diffuse dark circles, while the cool metal applicator depuffs and refreshes the under-eye area.
4. Laura Mercier Secret Concealer (S$46)
Designed specifically for the eye area, Laura Mercier’s hydrating concealer evens out discolouration with its peach undertones without settling into fine lines and wrinkles. It won’t crease even after a long day at work, so there’s no need for touch-ups.
5. NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer (S$46)
Sworn by almost every makeup artist who’s ever used it, NARS’ full coverage formula is loved for its lightweight, hydrating texture. According to reviewers, a little concealer goes a long way for a luminous, natural finish that doesn’t cake or crease.
6. Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Concealer (S$50)
This pigmented concealer has a thick consistency, but once you’ve apply it under your eyes, you’ll forget it’s there. The lightweight, long-lasting formula sits comfortably on the skin and you only need a tiny amount to banish dark circles.
7. Bobbi Brown Instant Full Cover Concealer (S$53)
Give your sleepy peepers a brightening boost with a few dabs of Bobbi Brown’s concentrated concealer. It softens shadows, smooths lines, and hides late nights. This 12-hour wear formula is sweat-resistant too, so you can skip the midday touch-ups.
8. Yves Saint Laurent Beaute Touche Éclat (S$62)
With a click and swipe of the YSL Touche Éclat pen, you’ll look you had 8 hours of sleep, which is what the concealer promises. The light-reflecting minerals in the formula brighten dark under-eyes and draw light to the face, so it doubles as a subtle highlighter sans shimmer.
Concealers For Dark Eye Circles
While we have our genetics to thank for our dark eye circles, our sleep patterns play a huge role too. Hopefully, these pigmented under-eye concealers will brighten your peepers.
If all fails, just glitter up.
