A successful project, be it a renovation on your home or a new makeup look, needs the correct tools. I mean you wouldn’t pound a nail in the wall to hang a picture with your shoe would you? Um, never mind, bad example– I’ve done that like a billion times. Hey, a good stacked heel makes a pretty good hammer beauties.

The same theory applies to concealers. I wouldn’t use a brightening under eye concealer on a blemish. I want to hide it not draw attention to it. So when you think about it, concealer wardrobing makes perfect sense.

Get a polished look with the help of a concealer wardrobe! As an older woman, using multiple concealers is a must to achieve a flawless complexion. I need a concealer for my under eye area, another to reduce redness and another to hide brown spots.

Take a look at my current concealer wardrobe:

BECCA Under Eye Corrector – a great discovery for over 40 women or anyone with dark under eye circles. It is infused with ultrafine light-reflecting illuminators and it’s subtle pink color adds brightness to dark circles. It won’t settle into fine lines or wrinkles. It does a great job of prepping the skin for smooth, even concealer coverage. Provides long-wearing, transfer and water resistant coverage. It can be used under or over concealer–I use a few tiny drops of this on top of my under eye concealer.

Amazing Cosmetics Amazing Concealer is a great full coverage concealer for pretty much everything. I’ve been using Light Beige to cover the redness and broken capillaries on my chin. It is highly pigmented and there are an astounding 20 shades available! It’s also a favorite of professional makeup artists, celebrities and enthusiasts from around the world.

Amazing Cosmetics Perfection Stick –  I really like using this creamy and convenient stick for touchups and for the outer corner of my eye. I have some redness there from rubbing my eyes too much when I was younger. I had (and still have) really bad allergies and unfortunately this redness is a result of that. The fair shade works well for this area and doesn’t crease in my crows feet. Choose a darker shade and use to contour..

Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer – the first concealer I use is for the under eye area. I have some darkness on the inside corner (inside of my nose) that I need to cover as well as fine lines and under eye bags.  I know, that’s a LOT for a concealer! NOW do you see how a concealer wardrobe makes good sense? I also use this to highlight above my brows, my cupid’s bow and down my nose. I use the shade Buff.

Revlon Age Defying Targeted Dark Spot Concealer Treatment – this is perfect for concealing my dark spots. I use this after applying my foundation. The texture is light and very hydrating and Vitamin C along with licorice extract to help brighten skin. The sponge tip makes it easy to blend.

  11. These are some great points. I should really start experimenting with one or two of these!

  12. Melinda Kuffler Dunne says

    I totally agree with you! Being a woman over 40 I need all the help I can get. I did try the red lipstick trick for concealer….no it didn’t work for me. LOL! It just goes to show I will try anything to hid my dark circles.

  13. I am so glad that I came across this article. I just looked at some recent photos of myself and my under eye circles are insane! Will definitely look into some of these products.

  14. Having a lot of concealers is definitely something I excell in lol!

  15. Karlyn Flores says

    Wow What a nice concealer i love it when my dark spot are hide.

  16. I just wrote about concealer wardrobes the other day without realizing that Ulta was onto this. Actually Ulta sells most of my favorites like IT Cosmetics, the Becca Undereye Corrector and tarte maracuja. I haven’t used Amazing Concealers in a long time but I remember loving the ones I had.

  17. It’s always great to have a variety of concealers. Great products you have listed.

  18. Lisa Marie Heath says

    I have a huge variety of concealers! I always need it

  19. I need to really try the under-eye corrector. That seems to be the only ‘trouble’ spot on my face no matter what time of day it is.

  20. I need to try that BECCA Corrector.

  21. Don’t used concealers will share.

  22. I’ve got tons of concealers for different functions!

    I hoard concealers…different days, different needs

  24. rika agustini says

    I use concealers to cover up my dark eyes and always set it up with setting powder to prevent crease

  25. I need to try the Becca corrector and the Amazing Cosmetics concealer for my super-dark circles.

  26. I actually don’t have that many concealers… Just my Bobbi Brown concealer palette and my MAC conceal & correct duo.

  27. Eileen Mendoza Loya says

    I’d let my daughter in this. She uses concealer to mask dark circles under her eyes. Her job is a high-stress one and she sometimes loses sleep because of it.

  28. Still on the search for the perfect concealer. Your reviews would come very handy to me. I would look into them.

  29. mail4rosey says

    I don’t have any concealer. I could def. stand to add some to the routine though.

  30. TinaBowling says

    I ditched using concealers a long time ago but I’d like to try that Amazing concealer stick.

  31. I am such a concealer junkie!!

  32. Saving Common Cents says

    A concealer wardrobe really does make a lot of sense. It’s not something I’ve ever thought about before, but obviously you don’t want the same concealer everywhere on your face. elf products are really great quality too!

  33. I started using multiple concealers when I was in my twenties, just because of how difficult it is to find matching concealers for very fair skin– then, I used two, with a different (yellow) one for blemishes. Now, I must have 10, but I have yet to find one or a combo that is perfect for most seasons, for my purple-y under-eye circles. The best one I ever had, was of course discontinued.

    • For under eye circles try a peach or pink toned concealer.

      • Thank you– but, yeah I have. In truth, as I’ve been doing makeup daily for 35+ years, I’ve tried every method, color and combo. Thinking about the IT cosmetics concealer, as a last gasp. My dark circles are a hereditary thing, sadly, and as necessary meds have thinned my skin, they’ve gotten somewhat worse.

  34. I don’t wear makeup, but I think using is a concealer is a must for those who do. This sounds like a great product.

  35. Sounds a great product! I like the Becca one it makes me comfortable that one!

  36. I love using multiple concealers to achieve flawless skin!

  37. Multiple concealers are a must! I also enjoy the Maybelline Dream Lumi line!

  38. Stephanie Pass says

    I need multiple concealers because my teenager always steals mine, lol. These look great! I will have to check them out.

  39. amotherworld says

    Wow! I only have one concealer that I use religiously – but I should get an under eye corrector as I have dark circles.

  40. Kendra Stanton says

    I have tons of different kinds of concealers. One for every occasion, I swear!

  41. I definitely need to look into more concealers, I want to try the Becca one.

  42. I’ve never tried that Revlon!

  43. TheNewClassy says

    My daughter likes trying out different makeup products. I will have to let her know about this.

  44. I’d never heard the term “concealer wardrobe”. Now that I have it makes total sense.

  45. My first time to hear about a concealer wardrobe. I don’t use a concealer most of the time.
