We've Picked Out Our Top 6 Concealers for Men

Here’s the situation: you’ve got a date tonight. Your hair is pomaded to perfection. The outfit looks good. But then you notice a zit on your chin or zombie under-eyes. Yikes!

Don’t worry. Concealer to the rescue! Wait, can men wear concealer? Of course!

More and more men are turning to this lifesaver on those days and nights when they need backup in the looks department.

Concealer won’t leave you looking like you’re wearing makeup. You’ll just look like a better version of yourself.


Feeling unsteady in your first foray into concealer for men? How do you even apply concealer? I’ve got you covered.

All you need is one of the top concealers for men in a shade that matches your skin tone and complexion needs. Add the best blending tool out there: your fingers.

To apply men's concealer, start by strategically placing the concealer where you need it (usually the odd pimple, red splotch, shadow or dark under-eyes). Then dab dab dab it in with your finger. Simple!

If you're wanting to step your game up ever-so-slightly, you can also try blending your concealer in with a little makeup sponge, also known as a beauty blender. Just wet it a bit before use and make sure to clean it regularly.

With little labour, you instantly look like you’ve slept eight hours and downed green smoothies since childhood.
