Boi-ing Bright On Concealer, £21.50 | Benefit

Full of red algae and vitamin C derivatives, this concealer does more than just cover up dark circles – it colour-corrects dark marks and reveals a radiant finish that won’t dry out or crease. It’s the serum-like consistency that keeps things fresh and light – plus it’s waterproof, so it won’t budge. Offering up eight hours of comfortable wear, it’s ideal for holidays.

Filter Effect Soft Radiance Concealer, £12 | Morphe

This medium, buildable formula eliminates the need for layers of product – it’s designed to deliver a flawless finish without the heaviness, and a little goes a long way. Sweat proof, transfer-proof and water-resistant, it’ll last all day, as well as brighten and nourish the delicate skin around the eyes with a blend of hyaluronic acid, lumia granatum and hyalufix.

Promising 24-hour wear, this formula is designed to diffuse dark circles with a breathable, comfortable veil of coverage.

Hyaluronic Hydra-Concealer, £36 | By Terry

All about the glow, this hyaluronic acid concealer combines the blurring effects of a concealer with the skincare benefits of an eye serum. By letting the ingredients get to work, the area will feel suppler and look more energise. Finally, coated pigments and soft-focus powders enhance the finish of this soft but buildable formulation. Apply it using the easy-to-use brush tip applicator – great for on-the-go touch-ups.

Kosas Revealer Super Creamy + Brightening Concealer, £26 | Kosas

This lightweight concealer melts into skin, but still provides ample coverage. With a skincare-make-up hybrid formulation, it improves the look of skin with each use. Skin-brightening caffeine and pink algae fight under-eye darkness, while peptides and hyaluronic acid hydrate, plump and smooth the area. Use fingers or a damp beauty sponge to blend it in for a second-skin finish or go in with a brush and gently pat the product on for full coverage.

Magic Away, £24 | Charlotte Tilbury

Designed to combat each skin tone’s various undertones, this pen-style product will help you achieve a luminous airbrushed finish. A treat to apply, use it to mask over imperfections and discoloration. The formula is infused with Persian silk tree bark extract, which helps to lift the skin and deliver a soft filter of colour that won’t settle into fine lines or enhance unsightly texture.

Radiant Creamy Concealer, £20 (was £25) | NARS

This concealer’s hydrating and lightweight formula makes it a dream to blend. As the product sets, it reveals a radiant and fresh finish, fortified with innovative light-diffusing technology to minimise the appearance of fine lines and signs of fatigue. It also works well to clean up any cheek contour when applied in an upward motion towards the temples and below cheekbones.

Banana Low Lighter, £38 | Rodial

Ideal for brightening up dark circles, disguising visible veins or minimising redness, the lightweight consistency of this concealer allows the product to sit softly on the skin, as opposed to sinking into texture or pores. To nail that rested, youthful finish, we recommend you follow up with the powder in the same ‘Banana’ shade and ‘bake’ the area.

Touche Éclat Highlighter, £28 | Yves Saint Laurent

A cult favourite, Touche Éclat is famous for its brush-tip applicator and illuminating power – we guarantee it’ll wake up tired eyes in just a few swipes. The low-to-medium coverage neutralises dark circles and blurs fine lines, while an infusion of calendula extract and antioxidant-rich vitamin E locks in moisture to banish dryness and visibly uneven skin texture.
