If you apply concealer under your eyes and find it doesn’t fare well against dry skin, then look no further: here’s our edit of the best hydrating formulas
A good concealer really is a true beauty hero simply because they can be used to cover up, highlight and clean up any mistakes.
In fact, concealers become such a staple in most people’s make-up bags that once you’ve found the right one for you, it’ll no doubt take some serious persuasion to make you deviate from the product you know works.
However, when it comes to picking the ultimate concealer, it’s important to find a product that is going to sit well on your skin type. That’s why those with dry skin should opt for liquid or cream concealers because they are less likely to crease or make skin flaky.
Here, we share the best concealers for dry skin to help you find your perfect match.
