The best under eye concealers to disguise dark circles

The best under eye concealers to disguise dark circles

Dark, under eye circles are the most noticable tell-tale signs of a lack of sleep.

Finding the perfect concealer to use on the delicate skin underneath and around your eyes is essential if you want to create the illusion of a perfect night’s sleep and transform your eyes to appear brighter and wide-awake.

Whilst disguising dark circles, you also need your under eye concealer to be the perfect lightweigth consistency. When too heavy and thick, concealers can accentuate the uneven texture of the skin under your eyes and can even draw attention to fine lines and wrinkles.

To help you find the perfect smoothing and brightening under eye concealer, we have curated a list of our favourite products to banish pesky under eye bags.
