We'll always love how foundation gives us an immaculate-looking slate, but we must admit that we've temporarily set it aside since the pandemic contained us at home. That said, when we're attending video meetings or running errands, we still want to hide any pesky blemishes and dark circles. This is where a concealer comes in handy! Not only does it feel lighter than a foundation, it also cuts our makeup routine in half with how easy it is to apply—a true life saver on lazy days and tight schedules.
For a quick, foolproof base, we recommend concealers that provide high coverage and a matte finish for a better grip. We found some lightweight, and non-cakey formulas for you to choose from below, so scroll ahead!
1. L'Oréal Infallible Full Wear Concealer
This concealer may be affordable, but it can provide supreme coverage that stays lightweight and non-greasy throughout the day.

3. Benefit Boi-ing Cakeless Concealer

Aside from its long-lasting coverage, makeup artists (and we) adore this concealer for its pump packaging that prevents contamination and makes it easy to mix different shades.

This pot concealer has rich pigment that can cover even the toughest blemish. You can use it with a concealer brush for more coverage or blend it out with your ring finger if you're aiming for a barely-there look.
