05 .05 .14 Concealers: Best in Class

There’s something for everyone in my roundup of the best multitasking concealers. From lightweight to heavy-duty coverage, these are the masters of cover up in my beauty bag.

1: Tom Ford Beauty Illuminating Hightlight Pen
This light, creamy brush pen can be compared to the storied YSL Touche Eclat, but it is creamier with better coverage. Its ability to bring light to the skin is a wonder, but the formula’s beautiful finish is what makes it a true stand out.

2: The Balm Time Balm Concealer
Part makeup, part skin care, you can sleep in this lightweight coverup. Light-to-medium coverage that feels good on your skin.

3: Benefit Fakeup
My new best friend as of late as it tackles the problem of dry skin under the eye. It reminds me of a vitamin E stick, but with a healthy dose of natural coverage that lasts. It’s really moisturizing and does not accentuate or dry into lines the way a lot of concealers do.

4: Kevyn Aucoin The Sensual Skin Enhancer
This creamy, almost opaque cream can be used in multiple ways. Use it ever-so-sparingly where you need serious coverage, mix it with moisturizer for a sheer all-over foundation, or use it straight-up as a full-coverage foundation. There’s nothing like it. It’s been in my arsenal for over ten years.

5: rms uncover up:
This is a do-it-all product that you can do as little or as much with as you like. Use it in the t-zone and it smoothes skin and minimizes pores, definitely use it under the eyes for brightening and light but buildable coverage. The mineral pigments self-adjust to your skin for a perfect match. I love love love this brand for it’s purity and quality. Founded by a world renown makeup artist, it’s natural and free of all toxins and chemicals, but it performs like a luxury beauty line.

6: Alison Raffaele True Concealer
This antioxidant-filled formulation provides a light layer of color that works as an overall blemish concealer as well as it does under the eyes. This makeup artist eco-brand is one of my newer discoveries and I really love its unique blend of vitamin power and coverage.

7: Bare Escentuals Correcting Concealer
I love this brand’s straight forward concealer. It’s so tiny, I keep one in my purse for under eye touch-ups and around my nose. The SPF 20 is a nice bonus.

8: Bare Escentuals Well Rested
If I had to name by biggest eye brightener, it would have to be this hard-to-categorize game changer. It just does something to your entire face. It lightens, brightens, covers and contours. Apply it with a light hand with this great concealer brush, extending a bit beyond where you normally put concealer for a truly eye-popping affect. Be sure to blend well and don’t use too much. I often use this on top of another concealer, especially at night.
