I’m all for roaming around barefaced (seriously, I’ve only put on makeup twice throughout lockdown), but there are some days when I just need a little coverage to deal with my dark circles or an errant zit. Luckily, there are some incredible concealers out there that help camouflage all kinds of situations! Here are a few wallet-friendly options that are worth trying.

1. L.A. Girl HD Pro.Conceal

Price: INR 695/-

With a wide variety of shades under its belt, this liquid concealer is a popular pick. The full-coverage formula covers up redness and discolouration, without feeling heavy on the skin. If you find that your under-eye circles look ashy when you apply concealer, you can also invest in the brand’s colour correctors to even things out.

2. L’Oreal Paris True Match Concealer

Price: INR 999/-

Catering to every kind of undertone, this product is known for its natural-looking finish. Each of the 9 hues blend seamlessly into the skin and never look cakey or crease up. The formula layers well so you can build up the coverage from sheer to medium quite easily.

3. Maybelline Fit Me! Concealer

Price: INR 475/-

Loved by makeup artists and beauty editors all around the globe, this concealer needs no introduction. The oil-free formula glides on to the skin to conceal blemishes, dark circles and redness, without clogging up your pores. Plus, the affordable price point makes the product seem almost too good to be true!

4. Milani Secret Cover Concealer Cream

Price:  INR 800/-

If cream-based products are your jam, this little pot is perfect for you. Not only does it completely erase the sight of pimples and pigmentation, but also melts into the skin to deliver an undetectable finish. Since the formula is waterproof, you can safely wear it on a humid or rainy day.

5. NYX HD Photogenic Concealer Wand

Price: INR 525/-

This slim tube is a known dupe for many luxury concealers. The hydrating formula evens out every type of complexion, without settling into the fine lines of your skin or flaking off. Whilst you can use your fingers to blend it in, I find that a damp sponge works like magic with this one.
