Maybelline ConcealerMaybelline Concealer

Ask anyone in your life which makeup product they can't live without (figuratively, of course) and we guarantee they'll say concealer.

Or mascara, but let's go with concealer.

Disguising dark circles, redness, broken capillaries, shadows, pigmentation, pimples - all of which are very normal - the magic of concealer is how it can make you feel like the best, most well-rested version of yourself.

Want to learn how to get rid of dark circles by applying concealer like a pro? See how a makeup artist does it in our YouTube tutorial below!

But with 1,545,890 concealers on the market, how are you meant to know which one to paint over your eye bags?

That's where we come in.

From bargain to bougie, below you'll find our current front runners for the best under-eye concealers to brighten even the darkest of circles.

No matter your budget, we reckon these under-eye concealers are bloody brilliant.

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eye Eraser

This cheap and cheerful concealer is a cult product for a reason. It's been around for a decade and still, it's one of the best (if not the best) budget concealer.

This friend covers everything. Dark circles? Gone. Redness? Don't know her. And the reason why it's so great is it does this without leaving that tell-tale cakey concealer finish on the skin.

With its pigmented but thin texture and in-built luminosity, the formula blends really easily into the skin for a 'I definitely didn't wake up like this but I want you to think I did' result.

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind's stick packaging and sponge tip applicator make swiping product over your bags a dream. That combined with the thin liquid texture make it kind of unstuffupable to use.

Start by dotting a small amount of concealer in the inner corner of your under eye where you're darkest and blend out with a concealer brush, Beauty Blender or your ring finger. Voila!

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Illuminating Anti-aging Concealer 12ml

Allow us to introduce to you the latest baby in the IT Cosmetics concealer family.

Bye Bye Under Eye Illuminating Anti-Aging Concealer delivers the same long-lasting, full-coverage finish as the original Bye Bye Under Eye concealer, but with extra glow.

In other words, Bye Bye Illuminating is the OG's vibrant cousin who eats her greens, drinks 12 litres of water a day and is legit lit from within.

For the $40 price tag, you're paying for an excellent concealer that happens to have skincare ingredients in it, too. The formula contains peptides, collagen, hyaluronic acid and antioxidants - all juicy things that help keep your under eyes looking plump and line-free throughout the day.

A word of warning: this concealer is extremely pigmented. Like, one tiny dot and your dark circles are gone pigmented.

To conceal dark circles, broken capillaries, age spots or redness, warm a tiny dot of this stuff with your fingers and tap into the skin. Start small and build if you need.

Estée Lauder Double Wear Instant Fix Concealer 24H Concealer + Hydra Prep

Rounding out our current top three is the Estée Lauder Double Wear Instant Fix Concealer 24H Concealer + Hydra Prep.

Fans of the brand's cult Double Wear foundation will enjoy this bougie concealer, but what's even more exciting is that it's essentially two products in one.

On one end of the stick, you've got your beloved Double Wear concealer. With a natural satin matte finish and medium-to-full buildable coverage, the formula is super blendable and won't crease or settle in fine lines.

The brand reckons it's crease-proof, waterproof, sweat-proof and humidity-proof. So basically, pop this product on in the morning and it'll still be there when you get home.

On the other end of the stick, you'll find the Hydra Prep serum. Because the skin around and under our eyes is very thin, it gets dehydrated easily. This leads to crepey skin and more pronounced lines. Rude.

The idea of this two-in-one product is: prep and hydrate the under-eye area with the serum, let it sink in and THEN apply your concealer for a smooth, plump finish. Done!

That brings us to the end of our bargain to bougie under-eye concealer roundup. You're welcome.
