        Clé de Peau Beauté Concealer

        "It looks like a stick, but makeup artists swear it’s a magic wand, erasing dark circles and covering breakouts with one assured swipe. L.A. makeup artist Kirin Bhatty uses the “concentrated yet creaseless” cream on clients Jessica Paré and Kiernan Shipka. Bass cops to using the coveted fixer every day—on herself—for its all-purpose coverage and “not too dry, not too greasy” consistency.

        Murad Acne Treatment Concealer

        As a category, medicated concealers can be better in concept than practice. (The fatal flaw? Dryness. They don’t call it “zit-zapping” for nothing.) But Murad’s spot treatment successfully delivers creamy, blemish-hiding camo while its salicylic acid and Vitamin A tackle oiliness. “By the time you take your makeup off at night, you’ll see the inflammation go down a bit,” says N.Y.C. makeup artist Megan Lanoux.
