Concealers for Every Skin Concern

Most of us have something to hide, and a good concealer can do just that. But not all cover-ups are created equal -- where one makes dark spots disappear, another zaps the appearance of acne. Achieve complexion perfection with these concealers designed for your specific concerns.

    • Concealer for Acne

      You may be past the prime age for breakouts, but if you're like most adult women the occasional zit just happens (thanks a lot, hormones!). Luckily, it's nothing a little cover-up can't handle. "Something with a hint of green in it is great if the pimple is bright red," says Los Angeles-based makeup artist Emily Kate Warren. "Avoid shiny highlighting creams because they will make the bump appear larger, and don't forget to dab a little powder over the breakout so that the concealer stays put for most of the day."

    • Concealer for Dark Spots

      Freckles or brown patches from suntans, birth control pills, or pregnancy-induced melasma are easier to cover up than you might think. If the patches spot your cheeks or forehead, use a creamy stick foundation that can cover a broader area. You'll get natural coverage in one quick sweep.

    • Concealer for Dry Skin

      If you've been skipping concealer altogether because of dry skin, you can stop right now. There's no reason you can't cover up imperfections -- just make sure you're using a creamy concealer that is super moisturizing, won't cake, and won't cling to flakes, Warren says.

    • Concealer for Redness

      The key to covering red splotches brought on by rosacea, colds (hello, red nose!), or post inflammatory pigmentation following a peel or laser treatment is picking a concealer with a thick, semimatte consistency. Even better: A concealer with a green tint can cancel out red tones on skin. Remember, with heavier concealers, a little goes a long way -- warm up a dab between your fingers and tap it over the trouble spot until it's well blended into skin.

    • Concealer for Fine Lines

      Choose a concealer with a malleable (aka workable) consistency like a cream that will fill in the lines but won't crack like a dry powder. "Squish your face so you can see the lines, then tap the concealer into the lines with your fingers," Warren says. "Tap a little extra along the edges of the lines where you'll want to blend out until the lines are completely invisible."
