6 Best Under Eye Concealers For Dark Circles


If you're genetically prone to dark circles or if they are the by-product of late nights binge-watching Netflix, then you will benefit from a little under eye concealer.

Concealers are our saviours in disguising dark circles, spots, discolourations & pigmentation.

Whether you're a makeup beginner or a beauty lover, there are many concealers available to choose from. This can make it overwhelming to decide on the best concealer for you.

At Kiana Beauty, we love the transformative power of a great concealer so we've called in one of our beauty experts to help.

Jaki is our amazing retail manager and has been in beauty retail for over 25 years. She has road tested every single concealer that we have on offer, and here are her top 6.

No, your eyes aren't playing tricks on you. This is totally an image of a bright, sheer lipstick.

One of our secret tricks to distract from dark circles is to wear a skin brightening lipstick.  A gorgeous pink or red shade has the amazing ability to:

  • enhance your features
  • instantly bring life to your face
  • draw the focus away from your dark circles
We love the pop of colour and hydrating shine from these sheer lipsticks. However, anything goes! You can shop our full range of lipsticks and lip glosses here.

Pro Tip

1. Concealer is a true multi-tasker. It makes a great primer for eyeshadow and lipstick.

Lightly dab any leftover under eye concealer onto your eye lids and lips to create a smooth base so that your eyeshadow stays in place longer.

2. Don't forget that your skin changes throughout the year. Your skin will naturally be slightly darker in summer and paler in winter, so don't forget to change your concealer with the change in seasons.


What is concealer?

Concealer is a powerful beauty product that can be used in many different ways.

It is generally thicker than foundation and is used to blend imperfections into the skin.

It can hide dark circles and brighten the under eye area (like sleep in a bottle). It can also be used to cover discolourations, pigmentation and blemishes.

Basically, concealer is the underrated super hero in your beauty armour.

Most people need two different concealers. One to cover spots and pigmentation around your face and one concealer for under your eyes to cover dark circles.

How to choose the right shade of concealer?

The right shade of concealer depends on how you will be using your concealer.

In most cases, you will need more than one concealer as the area under your eyes is different to the spots and blemishes that you are trying to conceal on the rest of your face.

When choosing an under eye concealer to cover dark circles, the right shade of concealer is one that is one shade lighter than your natural skin tone. This will reflect the light and enliven tired looking eyes.

For uneven skin tone, choose a concealer that is the same shade as your own skin tone or foundation so that it blends in seamlessly.

Should I apply concealer or foundation first?

Many makeup artists and beauty editors have debated this question.

The verdict? If you wear foundation, always apply this before you apply concealer.

The reason for this is that when you're not wearing foundation and you look in the mirror, all you can see is what you want to hide, so if you apply concealer at this point, you are likely to apply more concealer than you really need.

However, when you apply the foundation first, it acts as the base. It evens out the skin tone and reduces the appearance of discolourations. Therefore, in order to best judge where you really need to directly apply concealer, you need to have your foundation applied first.

How to apply concealer

We love to keep our mornings simple and stress-free, so here are our easy tips for applying your concealer.

1. To apply under eye concealer to cover dark circles:

We all want our under eye concealer to look natural, but we also want it to cover dark circles without settling into our fine lines or smile lines.

The skin under our eyes is the driest on our face, so make sure that the area has been hydrated with moisturiser or serum before you apply your foundation or concealer.

The best way to achieve natural looking concealer under the eyes is to dot a small amount of concealer under the inner corner of your eyes and use your fingers or a concealer brush to lightly dab the concealer to blend it outwards.

Always start with a small amount, then gradually build up if more is required, so that it doesn't look heavy or cakey.

2. To apply concealer to correct discolouration, redness or pigmentation:

Apply a small amount of concealer to the area that needs correcting and use your fingers to blend it out. The warmth of your fingertips will melt the concealer into your skin.

If you need a little more coverage, just go back and layer some more concealer back on top for full coverage.

3. To conceal dark spots or blemishes:

Use a cotton tip or this Clinique Concealer Brush to apply the concealer directly onto the spot and tap it in gently with your finger to blend into the skin.
