Brush Concealer/Highlighter Combos:
Sponge-tip Wand Applicators:
Pot/Crayon Concealers: (Usually pot/crayon concealers are a bit too heavy for the under eye area, but the three listed here totally worked, with one caveat: Make sure you moisturize before you try them!)
Applicators That Defy Categorization:
• MakeUp ForEver HD Invisible Concealer, $29: A unique silicone tipped applicator makes it easy to control how much you 'dot' on the area. It provides pretty amazing coverage without looking like you're wearing any makeup. Comes in 14 shades.
• Maybelline Age Rewind Eraser for Dark Circles, $8.31: This award winning concealer has a caterpillar-like applicator that provides full coverage. Comes in six shades.
• Physicians Formula Youthful Wear Dark Circle Corrector, $12.95: I was skeptical of the gimmicks on this one--it has two colors and a heavy roller ball, but it really delivered. The roller ball deposited the right amount of product, and the yellow covered my darkness instantly and the light covered with some hydration. Comes in light/medium only.
• MAC Pro Longwear Concealer, $19: Heavy duty, matte finish. Be sure to moisturize before using because while the coverage is amazing, it settled in my fine lines a bit. No brightening--it's purely for hiding. Comes in 15 shades and reportedly lasts for 15 hours.
