Sure, a dab of concealer can help eyes look instantly brighter, but what’s it doing for you in the long run? If the answer is, "not much,” we suggest you test-drive one of these three editor favorites. The cover-ups pack skin care benefits that’ll smooth out fine lines, deflate puffiness and reduce dark circles.
1. Best for Dark Circles
Not only does this concealer come in 15 shades, but it contains a blend of vitamin C and bamboo grass extract to help brighten dark shadows. This silky serum is buildable, so even the deepest rings can score maximum coverage without looking cakey.

2. Best for Fine Lines
The thin-skinned eye area is especially prone to lines and sun damage, so you want to keep it protected daily with sunblock. This lightweight lotion boasts a whopping SPF 50+ to shield from wrinkle-causing UV rays. Antioxidants like vitamin E and green tea offer protection against free radicals (those skin-cell-damaging molecules produced by the sun, and other environmental pollutants). The skin under your eyes can also get very dry, especially as you age, so you’ll love the hyaluronic acid in this blend, which hydrates and helps plump creases.
3. Best for Puffiness
Whether your puffiness is due to allergies or late nights, this tinted cream (which comes in 2 shades) acts like Spanx for bulging undereyes. The addition of caffeine helps constrict blood vessels and reduces puffiness, while a quick massage with the cool metal tip helps drive away excess fluid from the area.
