Oily and Acne Prone Skin
IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Breakout Full Treatment Concealer
Gone are the days where you have to decide between covering up a zit, or letting it breathe to speed up its healing process. Fortified with zit-zapping and oil absorbing ingredients such as zinc oxide, sulphur and tea tree, this concealer does way more than just cover those pesky zits. It’s an innovative colour-infused skincare cream loaded with full-coverage pigments made to conceal and treat your pimple all at the same time, delivering flawless-looking skin.
Kat Von D Lock it Concealer
Priding itself on its full-coverage, this heavy duty concealer means business. Not just spots and blemishes, this concealer takes the cake by being able to conceal even the darkest of tattoos, making it the perfect product to use when it comes to hiding those pesky hormonal breakouts. We love how this opaque concealer locks itself onto the skin upon application and doesn’t budge after, withstanding even the oiliest of skins!
Nars’ Soft Matte Complete Concealer
We never thought we’d find a concealer that didn’t require applying any setting powder after till we found this. Drying to a natural matte finish, this lightweight and oil-free cream concealer is perfect for people with oily skin. It contains Optimal Diffusion Powder that will transform the look of your skin by blurring any imperfections with light-diffusing spheres. A little product goes a long way here, so just a small dab of this product will deliver high coverage that’s non-cakey and long-lasting– what’s there not to love!
Benefit Cosmetics’ Boi-ing Industrial Strength Concealer
Aptly named, this industrial strength concealer is what you need to cover the most stubborn imperfections. We love that it’s a stay-put full-coverage concealer that ends with a matte finish so we don’t have to worry about it melting off mid-day. This product is also highly blendable and natural looking, making it the perfect everyday concealer for those with oily skin.
Dry and Mature Skin
Too Faced’s Born This Way Naturally Radiant Concealer
If you are worried about your concealer creasing because of dry skin, this is the product that you should reach out for. Thanks to its blend of Coconut Oil and Hyaluronic Acid, it seeps into your skin like butter, delivering hydration to your under eyes and skin. Its creamy consistency also allows it to blend phenomenally so that it never creases. The result: a complexion that appears naturally flawless and radiant.
Tarte Aquacealer Hydrating Concealer
Doubling up as a serum, this product is a dream for anyone who struggles with dry skin. Formulated with concentrated pigments suspended in a deep conditioning serum, it contains 20% water to deliver the coverage you desire while moisturising your skin. We also love how this concealer serum is so lightweight, it allows you to apply it all over your face to mask any redness, dark spots or acne without looking cakey at all. It’ll leave you asking yourself, ‘what makeup?’
IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye Anti-aging Concealer
For people who have slightly more mature skin, this is your antidote. Infused with anti-aging peptides, hydrolyzed collagen, antioxidants and hyaluronic acid, this revolutionary concealer helps to improve the appearance of any wrinkles while effectively concealing any skin imperfections. The result is a moisturised finish that melts into your skin once you hit it with a damp beauty blender!

Best known for its effectiveness and affordability, this concealer offers a hefty dose of coverage without leaving your skin feeling tacky. Infused with skin-soothing Goji Berries, this concealer glides on easily and blends like a dream, making even the driest and matured of skins look dewy and radiant all day long. Its micro-corrector applicator also makes concealing much easier, truly making it the answer for complexion perfection!
Red and Sensitive Skin
NYX Professional Green Concealer Jar
This next one is an ideal pick for those with fair and sensitive skin. The light green shade helps to neutralise any redness associated with skin sensitivities, while the creamy consistency glides on seamlessly to help you achieve an even skin tone. And don’t belittle its small packaging — a little product goes a very long way to helping you achieve a flawless face.
Eucerin Dermopurifyer Concealer
If you’re on the prowl for a concealer that can help to soothe your skin irritations as well, try Eucerin’s Dermo Purifyer. Created with a special blend of Bisabolol and 1.8% Salicylic Acid, this formula works together to heal and protect the skin, while seamlessly covering any dark circles or blemishes you may have. It’s truly the best for calming hyper-reactive skin!
Erborian’s CC Red Correct Cream
Fresh out of the tube, the CC Red Correct Cream combines shade-matching technology with a subtle minty-green tint to correct and conceal any redness that is often seen on sensitive skin. We love it because it glides on like a lightweight cream, keeping the skin feeling smooth and hydrated throughout the day. On top of that, this cream also consists of skin-healing properties such as Vitamin E and Tiger Grass extract to battle fine lines and aggravated skin. What else could we ask for?
Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage
This unique two-shade concealer is packed with pigment that shows no mercy. We love it because it is highly customisable, with one shade formulated to match the skin’s depth of colour and the other formulated to match the skin’s undertone, making it possible for everyone to custom-blend their own perfect shade. Not to mention, this dermatologist-tested product is also oil-free and contains soothing aloe and chamomile extracts, making it suitable for all skin types, even the most sensitive ones!
