With the shabby days at work, the 24-7 news reels, the Doomsday clock ticking ever closer to midnight, the hours we spend in deep sleep are drying up. Then the dark circles come. When a layer of foundation won’t wipe away yesterday’s sorrows, we turn to concealers.

But they come in all shades and forms. And should we go for drugstore varieties–such as Maybelline or L’Oreal–or high-end stuff with French names? This time around, we’ll be talking about what concealer to choose based on the type of under eye circle. Then we’ll go through a listing of the best concealers you can find online. So let’s prepare a face to meet the faces that you meet.

How to Choose a Concealer for Dark Circles – Buying Guide

First of all, know there are different types of under eye circles. When you look for a concealer, you need to make sure you pick a tone that will match and neutralize the shadows. So let’s start off by talking about how to identify those circles.

Picking Concealers Based on The Colors of Your Under Eye Circles

Under eye circles come in three general shades: blue, black, and brown. So which category do yours fall under?

Bluish Circles: Sweeten up with Apricot Cover Sticks or Cream

Bluish Circles: Sweeten up with Apricot Cover Sticks or Cream
Tug at the skin under your eyes. When you pull down, the shadows disappear for a second, but as soon as you let go, the fatigue seeps into your face again. You have bluish circles. These appear with the onset of stress, overwork, hormone imbalance, or lack of sleep (or all of the above). The product of wide-eyed nights, blue is perhaps the most common type of under eye circle.
To look more alive, layer on an orange or apricot concealer. And it will take more coverage to fill out those shadows, so look out for cover sticks and creams.

Black Circles: Use the Luster of Pearl and Liquid Concealers

Black Circles: Use the Luster of Pearl and Liquid Concealers
Take a mirror in hand and lift your chin. If the shadows have faded from the eyes of your reflection, then you have black circles. These dissolve in the presence of light, so try a concealer with luster–in shades of pearl or light beige.
It doesn’t take much to cover black circles, so you can use liquid concealers. And if you can’t find just what you’re looking for, you can even substitute with any pearl eyeshadows you have on hand. But–here’s something to look out for–if you try for anything that’s too bright, you risk accenting the circles. Apply in moderation.

Reddish Brown Circles: Look Like Spring Again with Yellow or Green

Reddish Brown Circles: Look Like Spring Again with Yellow or Green
You’ve tugged at your skin; you’ve lifted your chin. If the shadows still haven’t faded away, then you have reddish brown under eye circles. These arise from the kind of hyperpigmentation caused by exposure to UV rays. So you may have gotten yours by not putting on enough sunscreen or even rubbing your eyes too much.
You can cover reddish brown circles by going a few shades lighter on the color spectrum, with a yellow concealer. If your shadows are particularly stubborn, then try for green, its complementary color. You’re going to need full coverage for these kinds of circles, so pick out a cream or stick concealer.

For a Natural Look, Use Liquid Concealers

For a Natural Look, Use Liquid Concealers
Your choice of concealers is limited, of course, by the type of under eye circles you have. But keep in mind that even though stick and cream concealers are opaque, they can make your face look thickly made up. This is doubly true if you apply multiple layers. It’s going to crease, so brush your concealer on once and leave it.
Liquid concealer isn’t completely opaque. But it goes on light and looks natural. If necessary, you can also apply multiple layers for darker circles, so liquid is a solid choice for first-timers.

Get a Hydrating Concealer for Dry Skin

Get a Hydrating Concealer for Dry Skin
There aren’t very many sweat or sebaceous glands (those things that secrete oil and give you acne) around your eyes, which is why crow’s feet are so common. If your concealer is creasing, it might mean that your skin is dry.
In that case, try a hydrating concealer. See if your concealer contains any moisturizing ingredients, such as collagen or hyaluronic acid (which is a lubricant your body produces). There’s also plant-based moisturizers, such as shea butter and castor oil. If there’s none of this stuff, then make sure you lay on the lotion.
