15 Best Concealers for 40s Skin and Above

Flattering coverage for skin in its prime.

Upgrade your base routine with these age-defying concealer picks!

Your skincare isn't the only thing you should change once you hit your 40s—your makeup needs its own upgrade, too! In fact, it's totally normal to part ways with the concealer you loved in your teens and your 20s. After all, you do have new skin concerns (hello, lines and dry skin) to deal with that need more than just coverage. Mature skin requires smoothing properties, flexibility, and extra hold from base products. So if you're up for a concealer upgrade, we listed our age-defying picks for mature skin below:

1. It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Anti-Aging Concealer

A pea-sized amount (or even less) can cover your dark circles and blemishes—it literally gives full coverage. This crease-resistant formula was also co-developed with plastic surgeons, infusing it with ingredients like collagen and Vitamin C for age-defying benefits.

2. Benefit Boi-ing Hydrating Concealer

Dry patches are not a problem for this concealer. It's surrounded by a hydrating stick that allows the pigment to glide smoothly over your skin and give it a fresh and dewy finish. When in a pinch, swipe it on the high points of your face to have it double up as a sheer highlighter!

3. Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer

This concealer stick can cover everything from acne scars to the darkest of undereye circles. While it's definitely on the creamy side, it won't cake up and emphasize any lines. In fact, it does quite the opposite—it blends seamlessly into the face and leaves a skin-like finish.

4. Pixi Correction Concentrate

Fake a well-rested look with this lightweight color corrector that comes in various brightening peach hues. It's a great alternative to heavy-duty concealers for a light makeup day, but you can also wear it under a full coverage formula for a photo-ready look.

5. Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer

The name of this product means business; it gives high coverage with a barely-there finish. It doesn't dry completely matte, which is actually a good thing because you don't have to worry about it settling into fine lines or cracking. Best of all, one coat is enough to get the job done—no need for heavy layering!

6. Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer

This foundation-concealer hybrid gives you the power to customize your skin's look for the day, and that's exactly why it's on this list. Only needing one product to perfect your base will prove to be convenient if you're always on the go or would rather not have a makeup bag stacked full of products.

7. Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage

Secret Camouflage is a makeup artist staple for heavy-duty concealing that doesn't cake nor crack. The fact that it works for people across all ages is a major feat—no residual oiliness or dryness. Having two shades in one compact also allows you to customize the color your skin needs, whether it's a color corrector or a skin-like veil.

8. Dior Diorskin Forever Undercover Concealer

This waterproof formula from Dior can be your best friend if you're still battling against oily skin in your 40s. Despite its budgeproof coverage, however, it's hydrating enough not to crease on fine lines and dehydrate your undereyes. The doe-foot applicator is small enough for spot-concealing, too!

9. Clarins Instant Concealer

After pulling an all-nighter, your peepers need all the extra help they can get. In this concealer, that help comes in the form of a dose of aloe vera, which helps soothe and depuff your tired eyes as it conceals shadows and pigmentation with a natural finish.

10. MAC Pro Longwear Concealer

The Pro Longwear Concealer takes the guesswork out of camouflaging imperfections in your prime. The pump packaging alone makes it a very hygienic choice, although its long-lasting coverage is perhaps the major perk. On the skin, the liquid feels almost like nothing. But even if you need full coverage, you could easily get away with wearing it as foundation.

11. Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Concealer

The skincare benefits of this product might just convince you to skip eye cream in the day time. It contains plant extracts like licorice root and cordyceps mushroom that help treat dark circles, as well as a hint of caffeine to wake your skin up as you cover those panda eyes.

12. Catrice Liquid Camouflage Concealer

If Catrice's potted camouflage cream is too opaque for your liking, then this liquid (and waterproof) concealer from the same range might be worth checking out. It has that same reliable high coverage but in a flexible form that looks flattering over lines and texture. Still, don't forget to blend fast because once it sets, it stays.

13. Clio Kill Cover Airy-Fit Concealer

The Kill Cover Airy-Fit has that dewy, minimal makeup finish down pat. The way that it won't cover everything is part of its appeal, because sometimes, a thin layer of product is all you want on your skin. Thanks to the the super slim applicator, touching up small areas on your face also becomes less of a hassle and more of a treat.

14. The Balm timeBalm concealer

An "anti-wrinkle" concealer sounds a bit gimmicky, but the balmy feel of this vitamin-rich (A, C, and E!) cream justifies the claim. When worn, the moisturizing benefits of panthenol helps it adjust to the stretching and movement in your face to prevent it from creasing heavily. So if you love a concealer with a slight sheen and medium coverage, this is the one.

15. Chanel Le Correcteur de Chanel

With this under your eyes, you won't need to edit your dark circles on photo-editing apps anymore. This formula was created to blur darkness and texture and to naturally reflect light, and unlike Facetune, it looks incredibly natural on.
