WITHa product that will remove annoying blue without clogging pores or drying out the skin, a concealer with a highlighter effect (will brighten dark circles) and corrective care that adapts to skin tone – BeautyHack experts have chosen products with which you will look like sleep 10 hours a day.

Cream-concealer Radiant Creamy Concealer, NARS

BeautyHack Editor’s Choice Daria Sizova

The convenient applicator (like lip gloss) is easy to distribute under the eyes and blend with your fingers.

With a bang it copes with dark circles under the eyes and holds firm until the evening. Creamy in texture, the concealer does not dry out the skin and refreshes the look due to the pearlescent particles in the composition.

Price: 2 250 rub.

Brightening concealer Under Eye Brightening Corrector, BECCA

Choice of BeautyHack Editor-in-Chief Karina Andreeva

Russian makeup artist Olga Fox introduced me to this tool – you can always find concealer in her case on the set. The pink reflective pigment helps neutralize dark circles and even out the tone. The product does not dry out the skin and does not clog into folds.

Price: 3 500 rub.

Concealer Éclat Lumière, shade 30 Beige Rose, Chanel

Choice of BeautyHack Special Correspondent Moore Soboleva

The cheerful salmon color seems very bright, but you don’t need to be intimidated by it. The product is remarkably distributed and surprisingly quickly merges even with very light skin: the warm shade neutralizes the blue under the eyes almost perfectly. There are reflective particles in Éclat Lumière, but they are extremely delicate – they are invisible even under direct light, so I would leave it exclusively for the eyes.

Price: about 2,000 rubles.

Concealer for face High Precision Retouch, Giorgio Armani

Editor’s Choice BeautyHack Natalia Kapitsa

Once in my cosmetic bag, the concealer made a real beauty revolution there, replacing CC and BB creams.

It does not need to be applied all over the face – it can be applied pointwise to problem areas. The product is ideal for the beach and hot summer: in one stroke of a thin and very comfortable applicator, it disguised dark circles and at the same time did not emphasize mimic wrinkles (those who are slightly “over 30” will understand me).

Concealer is non-comedogenic – does not clog pores. I apply a small amount to the periorbital area, a little on the post-acne pigmentation, a little on the nose area – and I’m ready to conquer new heights.

The product has a pleasant texture and almost no smell, and the color adjusts to the skin tone – you will not miss a shade.

Price: 2 329 rub.

Concealer against dark circles instant action Instant Concealer, Clarins

Editor’s Choice BeautyHack Natalia Kapitsa

I’m not a fan of decorative cosmetics, but concealer is included in the mandatory daily minimum (in my case, dark circles are a cosmetic feature, not signs of fatigue).

I always try to choose products containing care components. There are more than enough of them in this product: caffeine, which stimulates metabolic processes in tissues (it turns out, it can be “taken” not only inside), aloe extract, which soothes the skin, and a couple of “fighters” for a radiant look.

The remedy is very persistent: as in a song – neither snow, nor heat, nor torrential rain is afraid of it. The texture is light – not felt at all on the skin.

The effect is excellent: after application, no one will guess that at night you were dancing at a foam party, and not hugging a pillow.

Another bonus – the product contains a reflective Light Optimizing complex, which helps to redistribute the shadow. There is nothing to complain about.

Price: 1 170 rub.

BB concealer Double Wear Brush-On Glow, Estee Lauder

Choice of BeautyHack Special Correspondent Moore Soboleva

The ideological successor to the notorious YSL Touche Eclat is a twist-out concealer highlighter in a brush handle that can be used on all areas of the face where an urgent need to add radiance. The product is applied thinly – it will make really dark circles lighter and thus refresh the look, but will not completely cover them. But Brush-On Glow works well as a light highlighter.

Price: about 3,000 rubles.

Concealer Under Eye Concealer, 95, Inglot

BeautyHack Editor’s Choice Daria Sizova

Dark circles under my eyes are my headache. Practically nothing takes them, except for decorative cosmetics. This proofreader met expectations and coped with its task.

The impressive volume and economical consumption make it clear that the product will stay in your cosmetic bag for a long time. The consistency is liquid – a small droplet is enough to reliably hide the unpleasant “blue”.

The tool also copes well with puffiness – apply the corrector by hammering in with your fingertips. If you are snow white, feel free to mask skin imperfections with it – an excellent product will cope with this task.

Importantly, the concealer does not dry out the delicate area under the eyes at all – it contains ash tree bark extract and vitamins E and B3.

If you are “a little over 30” or you just have active facial expressions, the corrector will help to hide fine wrinkles and other imperfections. As a result, you will get the effect of “soft focus”, as in the Instagram Stories filter (the product contains scattering particles that will make you visually rested and your skin smoother).

Price: 1,000 rubles.

Boi-ing Brightening Concealer, Shade No.1, Benefit

Choice of BeautyHack Special Correspondent Moore Soboleva

The brand has re-released its line of concealers – now there are four of them, they are decorated in the same style (as they say, “everything is so rosy”) and each serves a specific purpose. The Brightening Concealer in a previous life was called Erase Paste and is designed specifically for the skin under the eyes – it brightens the skin and corrects its color with a warm peach undertone.

Price: 1 650 rub.

BB cream corrective care for the skin around the eyes, Erborian

Choice author of the blog BeButterfly and columnist for BeautyHack Yulia Petkevich-Sochnova

The concealer has long been famous in the Russian beauty environment – for several years it has been included in the unofficial top of the best products. Despite the fact that it is available in just one shade, it surprisingly adapts to different tones and suits almost everyone! In addition, it behaves perfectly on the skin – it does not roll down and does not emphasize dryness, on the contrary – it perfectly moisturizes, and also copes well with masking bruises and dark circles under the eyes.

Price: 2 990 rub.

Corrective agent against dark circles Clearly Corrective Dark Circle Perfector SPF 3, Kiehl’s

Choice author of the blog BeButterfly and columnist for BeautyHack Yulia Petkevich-Sochnova

If you are not very fond of makeup and just want to lighten and even out the skin tone under the eyes, then Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Circle Perfector SPF 30 has been created for you. It contains mineral filters and pigments, so it not only masks blackouts, but also protects the skin from ultraviolet radiation. The texture is very light and friendly to its owner – by the way, it will be wonderful while relaxing in hot countries.

Price: 2 750 rub.

Magic pencil-concealer Covermazing Magic Pen Concealer, Holika Holika

Choice of BeautyHack Special Correspondent Moore Soboleva

The Korean brand has a lot of concealers (Asian women pay the most attention in makeup to complexion); I tried only this one and it immediately became my favorite. Unlike many concealers in the brush, which turn out to be too transparent, Covermazing Magic Pen perfectly covers dark circles, despite the thinness of the coating – probably due to the pink undertone.

Price: about 1,000 rubles.

Concealer “Radiance and Youth”, Yves Rocher

The first thing I want to note is a compact package with a convenient applicator (you can fix your makeup on the run – you don’t need to use brushes and sponges). The product has a light texture – the concealer blends perfectly with the skin color and refreshes the face. The main task of the product is not to cover imperfections and redness, but to give your face a radiance and even out skin tone. To make the concealer last longer, I fixed it with a transparent powder, and it stayed with me until the end of the day. The product does not dry the skin (which is important for the delicate area around the eyes), and the reflective pigments in the composition give the effect of a light highlight – it is much easier to deal with dark circles.

Price: 970 rub.
