Ahhhh, concealer. I’d like to take a moment to give sincere thanks to one of my absolute must-have makeup products that I always can count on to make me look more awake (something I need help with every damn day). As someone who regularly falls victim to dark under-eye bags, I wear concealer on the daily. That said, it took me years to find one that I kept repurchasing — there are hundreds to choose from, based on shade, formula and wear. Here are two concealers Misty and I swear by.



Without a doubt, my favorite concealer is Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer ($7). I actually prefer this affordable drugstore concealer over more expensive alternatives because it just works. Simple as that. It covers dark circles incredibly well, is easy to blend and doubles beautifully as a highlighter. I recommend this concealer to EVERYONE and have converted several of my friends to this stuff. I swear, I will never stop using this concealer. I buy it in bulk!



“I LOVE the Glossier Stretch Concealer ($18) because it’s super light, pliable and has great pigment that gives solid coverage. I can gently tap this under my eyes with my finger to get a brightening effect. I’ve also used it to cover small blemishes. I love that as the day goes on, I don’t have to reapply and it doesn’t get that caked-on feel. It seriously feels like skin!”
