If you suffer from dark circles on the regular, you already know that finding a solid, full-coverage concealer that doesn’t sink into fine lines, overdry the delicate skin, and that stays put for longer than a couple of hours is no easy feat. Aside from these obstacles, you also need a super opaque formula equipped with major camouflaging powers. Because the skin under and around our eyes is much thinner than the rest of our face, it’s extra challenging to find a formula gentle and effective enough to conceal, correct and stay put. Unlike concealers designed for canceling out uneven tones or hiding blemishes, under-eye products have a lot more bases that we expect them to cover (pun, intended).
Color correctors can work wonders on dark circles thanks to their darkness-canceling capabilities, but frankly, it’s just one more step to add to your routine, and who has that extra time in the morning? I, for one, most certainly do not, and I’m going to assume you don’t either. So, if you’re looking for a product that covers and corrects in one simple formula, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite high-coverage options that erase discoloration and don’t crease or cake.
