Try Laura Mercier’s Secret Camouflage! Highly recommended by Lisa Eldridge, the popular celebrity make-up artist. Each compact comes in 2 shades (pink and yellow tones) for concealing everything..the formula doesn’t crease and does a great job of concealing everything!

I was on a long time hunt for a good concealor. I didn’t like the texture of the Tarte Shape Tape. It didn’t seem to blend well for me. Bye Bye Undereye by It Cosmetics always seemed kinda sticky and shiny on my skin and if I set it with powder it looked way too heavy. Urban Decay’s Naked Concealor is great if you don’t have dry skin and want something very natural, but my vote is 100% for the Nars Creamy Concealor. I don’t think I’ll ever buy anything else! It’s creamy, doesn’t crease on me, can be thinned out or built up, and last a long time. I good drugstore option is Maybelline Dark Circle Corrector or Maybelline Fit Me…. Sorry if that was information overload, I just tried so many before I found one that I really like!

As important as which concealer you use is where you put it. Make sure you’re applying it in a V shape! Once I learned how to do this my concealer stopped creasing no matter what concealer I used. I think some people call it the “triangle of light.”

It my absolute must have!

Another vote for Benefit Fake Up! It’s surrounded by moisturizer to hydrate the skin and remove creasing. It looks gorgeous all day!

My skin is super thirsty, so I need a hydrating concealer. My go to is Bare Minerals Bareskin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer. I absolutely love it!

I’m Indian so my dark under eyes circles are genetic.
I have been using the nars radiant creamy concelear and thebalm time balm concealer ( https://www.amazon.com/theBalm-14-TimeBalm-Concealer-Light/dp/B000Z602C0 )
just make sure you prep with a good under eye cream (i use mac fast response) before applying and set with laura mercier translucent powder and it will stay put all day 🙂

pinkprincess88 : IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye is bulletproof. NARS creamy concealer is great too, but for that speficic area can’t beat IT.

Super pale dry skin with naturally dark circles enhanced by sleep problems here:
I use Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden under my eyes first, blend it with a beauty blender, then go over it with NYX liquid concealer (can’t remember the name right now, it’s the only one that NYX makes in a tube with a wand applicator) and blend that out as well. Set with powder (I used Urban Decay pressed powder foundation).

Urban Decay Naked Skin, Tarte Shape Tape.

nearlyscottish : I do this and it still doesn’t work for me! Definitely makes it look better/more blended though!
Thanks everyone for your suggestions! Looks like I have a lot of options to try out!

Tarte Shape Tape if you’re looking for the ULTRA HEAVY DUTY NO MESSING AROUND GOLLY-GEE THIS IS FREAKIN INSANE level of undereye coverage. Its ridiculous to the point where, if you’re not used to it, I suggest doing one eye at a time because this ish is bananas.
Naturally I’m in love.
I have very (eczema) dry skin and I use the benefit porefessional primer first then Tarte Shape Tape. Doesn’t crease and doesn’t sit heavy on my skin. I don’t even need foundation when I’m using the shape tape because when its blended out my nose/cheek pores are flawless. But some of my girlfriends do bake this stuff as well for even longer wear- I don’t tend to leave makeup on my face longer than 4 hours or so.

Smoochism : I second Urban Decay’s Naked Skin. It’s really light and natural looking, and it doesn’t crease like others I’ve used.

I’ve probably tried all concealers listed here and right now my favorite is Tarte Shape Tape. But definitely a little goes a long way, so just a dab in the corners, then I blend out with a large concealer brush (I think it’s an old Sephora Airbrush Concealer brush, but it’s super similar to Real Techniques domed shadow brush), then finish by patting in with my finger. So far it’s not been too drying or cakey and doesn’t crease (those are my main issues with under eye concealer).
