Cruelty-free concealers to hide dark circles. Whether you want to cover up blueness or fake a full night’s sleep, finding a concealer that doesn’t look caked on can be a bit of a challenge.
Especially a cruelty-free concealer.
Many conventional and well-known brands use animal ingredients in their products or test their products on animals through painful methods, like rubbing them in the eyes of rabbits, mice and small mammals or forcing them to be ingested to determine toxicity levels.
But thankfully, a lot of beauty brands are waking up to the demands for more cruelty-free options, so I’ve put together a list of the best concealers that will cover dark circles, imperfections and any discoloration you may have, all while being cruelty-free.
wet n wild Photo Focus Concealer
The formula of this concealer is the perfect marriage between the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer and Tarte Shape Tape, making it an absolute steal for €3.99. It hides any imperfections and dark circles with ease and is tested to be white cast-free. That being said, it could do with having a much better shade range.
Cover FX Power Play Concealer
This weightless and long-wearing concealer from Cover FX will cover dark circles without creasing or transferring. It has a very impressive shade range, defends against pollutants and offers full coverage.
Urban Decay All Nighter Concealer
Like Urban Decays’ All Nighter foundation, their concealer will cover everything. The waterproof formula stays put for hours and this concealer absorbs oil to help your skin stay matte and shine-free, making it a great option for those of you with oily skin. It has a medium-to-full which is buildable without being cakey.
Too Faced Born This Way Concealer
A very popular concealer among the beauty community, the Born This Way concealer from Too Faced will instantly hide any imperfections, blur out lines and wrinkles and vanish the appearance of dark circles. It does have a high coverage so a little goes a very long way.
NYX HD Concealer
This concealer from NYX effectively covers any of your imperfections, discoloration and under-eye circles with ease. It provides a natural looking coverage without looking cakey or obvious and has a pretty impressive shade range with options for colour correcting.
