2020's Standout Concealers

For most women – one of the three things we can’t live without is a trusty concealer alongside a fantastic, hardworking moisturizer.

Lucky for us, concealers these days seem to do it all! Not only do they cover up any unwanted blemishes you may have, but they can also hydrate your skin, treat acne, cover up those undereye bags…you name it.

Many of them are also nontoxic and hydrating which means your skin will never be flaky and look natural all day.

Point being? Concealers have come a very long way and it’s hard keeping up with all the new ones that are worth your time.

Keep scrolling see which concealers we deem worthy of taking up precious real estate on your face.

Kosas Revealer Concealer

Kosas Revealer Concealer

This concealer feels like skincare for your face. It’s medium coverage, feels lightweight, is clean (so you don’t feel bad if it’s on your skin all day), dries quickly, and blends in perfectly with your skin. It’s pretty concentrated so important to note that a little goes a long way.

There are two types of people: those that use makeup brushes and those that do not. We’re the ones that do because it creates an even, smooth layer of makeup on the skin and saves more product in the long run.

Pat McGrath Labs Sublime Perfection Concealer

The Queen of makeup herself, we’re so thankful for Pat McGrath and her beautiful products. This concealer is creamy, lightweight, gives you full coverage and is completely breathable to be left on all day to keep you looking flawless.

Giorgio Armani Power Fabric Concealer

A high-coverage, long-wearing concealer that won’t crease or cake on your face. Perfect for concealing up any redness, spots, or breakouts.

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Away Liquid Concealer

Just like the rest of Charlotte Tilbury’s makeup, this concealer is freaking great. It’s an elastic-stretch concealer that basically makes you look poreless. It’s incredibly lightweight on the skin and leaves a natural finish.

Pro tip: if your skin is feeling dry and in need of more hydration, you can mix a little facial oil in with your concealer to make the consistency creamier.

Hourglass Vanish Airbrush Concealer

Waterproof, long-wearing, and crease-resistant, this concealer smooths out your skin and leaves you looking flawless. It’s super concentrated so make sure to apply lightly!

Glossier Stretch Concealer

We love this buildable, flexible concealer. You can warm this concealer up with your clean fingers and apply it wherever you need it. It’s moisturizing, brightens, and looks natural – just how all concealers should look when applied!

KVD VEGAN BEAUTY Lock-It Concealer Crème

Vegan, creamy, and super blendable, this Kat Von Dee concealer gives maximum coverage while making your skin look perfectly feathery. It’s also really moisturizing which means your skin feels hydrated all day long sans any flaky buildup.

You would think that being sheltered in place all this time would leave our skin looking flawless, but we’re going to blame it on the stress, current events, and the news causing us to breakout!

So, whether it be your diet, stress, environment, or all of the above – sometimes there’s nothing better than knowing you have a trusty tried & true concealer working in your favor to make you feel better.

Don’t forget that the best way to achieve great skin is making sure you take care of it from within and are diligent with your skincare routine!

Today, and every day, we are vowing to show up for our Black Community.
