Cover-up he­roes.

Cosmopolitan Middle East - - CONTENTS - BY ANNA KWARTENG

A GOOD CON­CEALER can lit­er­ally change your life. Sounds dra­matic, but name one other prod­uct that can si­mul­ta­ne­ously make you look like you got eight hours of sleep last night, while evening out your skin tone, hid­ing your acne scars, and dis­guis­ing all signs of a rough night. But how do you sep­a­rate the real win­ners from all the rest? You don’t – be­cause I al­ready did it for you. Here, the seven best con­ceal­ers that are hy­drat­ing, light­weight, and won’t make you look like you’re even wear­ing any­thing to be­gin with.

1. If You Want Build­able Cov­er­age... NARS RADIANT CREAMY CON­CEALER

Dhs85, sephora.com

A clas­sic, a sta­ple, an

OG – what­ever you want to call it, the Nars Radiant Creamy Con­cealer has built a rep­u­ta­tion for it­self be­cause it ac­tu­ally works. The light­weight for­mula con­tains mag­no­lia bark ex­tract, grape seed ex­tract, and vi­ta­min E, mean­ing it’s ex­tremely hy­drat­ing and easy to layer on, no mat­ter what level of cov­er­age you need that day.

2. If You Want a Con­cealer and Treat­ment In One... HUDA BEAUTY THE OVER­ACHIEVER HIGH COV­ER­AGE CON­CEALER

This full-cov­er­age con­cealer doesn’t just dis­guise dis­col­oration and red­ness; it works to treat them, too. The for­mula con­tains a dose of green tea and Jeri­cho rose ex­tract – two in­gre­di­ents that soothe and mois­turise skin while also pro­tect­ing it from en­vi­ron­men­tal stres­sors. Plus, it comes in a wide range of shades (as all beauty prod­ucts should, tbh).

3. If You Need a Multi-Tasker... TOO FACED BORN THIS WAY SU­PER COV­ER­AGE MULTI-USE SCULPT­ING CON­CEALER

Dhs144, sephora.com Why buy three prod­ucts when you can buy one that does it all? This light­weight, re­flec­tive for­mula can be used to con­tour, high­light and, of course, con­ceal. It also has a di­a­mond-shaped ap­pli­ca­tor, mean­ing that its sides, points, and edges make it easy to get into even the tini­est of cor­ners, with a mess.

4. If You Want a Nat­u­ral Fin­ish... LAURA MERCIER FLAW­LESS FU­SION UL­TRA-LONG­WEAR CON­CEALER

Dhs137, ounass.com

Hey, some­times you don’t want a fin­ish that’s su­per matte. En­ter: This Laura Mercier con­cealer. The light­weight for­mula con­tains a dose of hy­drat­ing glyc­er­ine (giv­ing it a not-too-matte, but not-too-shiny fin­ish), along with Vi­ta­min C, which works to brighten your un­der-eye area and pre­vent free-rad­i­cal dam­age with pro­longed use.

5. If You Need Full-Cov­er­age... MAKE UP FOR EVER FULL COVER CON­CEALER

Dhs150, woo­joh.com

Cys­tic acne? Bruises? Scars? What­ever you need to cover, Make Up For Ever is here for you. It con­tains a high con­cen­tra­tion of pig­ments that give you an in­sane amount of cov­er­age that also stays put all day long. And, thanks to its pow­der-like fin­ish, it won’t set­tle into it­ty­bitty fine lines by noon.

6. If You Don’t Want To Break the Bank... MAY­BELLINE IN­STANT AGE REWIND ERASER DARK CIR­CLES CON­CEALER

Dhs59, namshi.com

You’re get­ting so much more than your money’s worth with this con­cealer. The for­mula is very blend­able and thin in tex­ture, and con­tains goji berry and haloxyl, which help to cover up those an­noy­ing dark cir­cles with­out adding a heavy, cake-y tex­ture. And the sponge-tip ap­pli­ca­tor is an added bonus: It helps you ap­ply the prod­uct evenly, so you’ve got one less thing to worry about.
