10 Full-Coverage Concealers to Camouflage Blemishes

If you want to steer clear of cakey makeup but concealing imperfections is a priority, swap your heavyweight foundation for a full-coverage concealer that lends a buildable base for a second-skin-like finish. The underrated albeit versatile beauty staple is ideal for spot-concealing, hiding blemishes, camouflaging hyperpigmentation, and even accentuating your bone structure for a flawless, clear canvas. If you’re considering forgoing your foundation in favour of a good concealer, glance through our selection of the best ones across price points.

Things to Bear in Mind When Buying a Concealer

When purchasing the product, keep the following features in mind:

  1. Texture and Formula: If you want to conceal acne spots, look for a formulation that boasts salicylic acid. Alternatively, opt for a sheer formulation that doesn’t settle into your mature lines if you’re looking to hide wrinkles.
  2. Application: Blending the product with your fingertips will give you a natural, even finish. You can also use a brush or beauty blender for buildable coverage.
