Dark circles are one of beauty’s biggest bugbears. There’s nothing worse than looking exhausted and sometimes, no matter how hard we try, how many eye patches we use or how good our eye care régime is, we can’t seem to get those shadows to budge. But if you didn’t manage to get your beauty sleep there’s no need to stress, find out how to get rid of dark circles with some of the best under eye concealer on the market.

And it’s not just bag banishers we’re after. Adult acne is on the rise, and anyone who suffers from persistent breakouts or problem skin knows just how important it is to conceal blemishes correctly. Some of the best concealer for spots is often thicker in texture, but don’t overload. Use a thicker formula before you apply your foundation, and use a lighter texture to touch up later if need be.
