The Best Under Eye Concealer for Dry Skin: Slay a lot and moisturize!

We investigate the best under eye concealer for dry skin. Learn what ingredients to search for to eliminate dark circles without drying out your complexion.
Cracked, flaking concealer is never a good look—especially under your eyes. The best under eye concealer for dry skin needs to be moisturizing and resilient.
Another tip: powder isn’t usually your friend here as it tends to highlight rather than hide. Check for helpful ingredients to plump and hydrate your skin too. With time, you might be able to put away your concealer entirely!
We’ve done the research to deliver products that fit the bill. Check out our eight awesome selections:
#1. Top Choice: NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer has plenty of features that make it top of the list.
Firstly, it comes in a wide range of shades to match all skin tones. Secondly, it works with all skin types—meaning those of us with combination skin can use it elsewhere.
Thirdly, this creamy concealer is packed with awesome, skin-boosting ingredients. Grape seed and Magnolia bark work to hydrate skin and retain moisture. 
Lastly, this concealer does more than mask flaws—thanks to Mineral Tone Balancing Powder, it optically corrects them (cool!). 
#2. Best for Wrinkles: IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Full Coverage Concealer
If you’re worried about eye wrinkles as well as dry skin, this concealer by IT Cosmetics covers all the bases. 
This full-coverage concealer, developed with plastic surgeons, visibly diminishes wrinkles and fine lines. It contains antioxidants, vitamins, peptides, and other beneficial ingredients to promote smooth and even skin.
Although it can last for up to 24 hours, you shouldn’t expect creasing to spoil your look. Eco-conscious beauties will appreciate that it’s vegan and cruelty-free.
#3. Most Resilient: Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Ultra Longwear Concealer
Flawless Fusion Ultra Longwear Concealer produces a soft-focus effect like your fav flattering filter. It should settle like a second skin and blur imperfections such as wrinkles and fine lines. 
Don’t worry, it hydrates skin too—this liquid concealer won’t look dry or crease for up to 12 hours. 
Since it’s resistant to sweat, water, and humidity, it should keep your imperfections looking perfect all day long. The formula is free of sulfates and parabens—yay!
#4. Best for Dark Circles: Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser
Instant Age Rewind Eraser is a good choice if your biggest concern is dark circles. 
Infused with Goji berry and a combination of peptides, it can brighten and refresh tired eyes. These ingredients are also ideal for hydration.
The concealer also works to hide blemishes, redness, and wrinkles. You might want to apply several layers, though: some reviewers report that the concealer appears dry if you use too little.
#5. Best for Satin Finish: MAKE UP FOR EVER Ultra-HD Self-Setting Concealer
MAKE UP FOR EVER delivers this creamy concealer that’s ideal if you want a satiny-sleek finish. 
It’s compatible for all skin types and includes all sorts of yummy ingredients to improve dry, dull under-eye skin.
Hyaluronic spheres encourage moisture throughout the day. Chlorella, despite sounding somewhat scary, fights against dark circles. Wu Zhu Yu extract will help keep the skin around your eyes looking luminous and radiant.
The formula is self-setting, meaning it conforms naturally to your skin. 
#6. Most Natural: Yves Saint Laurent Touché Éclat Brightening Concealer Pen
Yves Saint Laurent offers up the elegantly-designed Touché Éclat Brightening Concealer Pen. 
This light coverage pen allows for precise application and a natural finish. There are no traces of sheerness or shimmer to ruin the illusion of naturally-flawless skin.
The formula is made to hydrate and rejuvenate your skin as well. Antioxidants reduce signs of fatigue such as dark spots, and hyaluronic acid helps to plump out sunken under-eye skin. 
Despite these pros, shades are disappointingly limited compared to other brands.
#7. Best Matte: Stay Naked Correcting Concealer
This simple correcting concealer wins our award for the best matte under eye concealer. To start with, it suits any skin type, including dry.
The concealer is highly-pigmented to mask flaws adequately but isn’t heavy. The result is a “real skin” application that should last up to 24 hours.
It has a wave tip applicator, which is ideal for precise application around the eyes. 
However, if your under-eye skin is super-dry, this concealer might start to crease after a while.
#8. Best for Long-Lasting Hydration: Benefit Cosmetics Boi-ing Hydrating Concealer
If you struggle with persistent, severe dryness, the Boi-ing Hydrating Concealer might be for you.
It offers up to six hours of hydration to prevent your parched skin from breaking through your concealer.
The stick includes moisturizing vitamin E and apple seed extract to combat dry, dull skin. The coverage is lightweight and sheer. 
Still, you might have trouble finding your shade—there are only five available.

Glass skin? Uhm YES!
Glass skin? Uhm YES!
This mist is so fun to use. You can use it with makeup or on its own! I tend to use it on bare skin for a natural glowing look. It is a fine mist that moisturizes, nourishes and helps fight damage. It also helps fight irritation and calm the skin. I will be posting a video a little later of me using this before makeup application! Makeup glides on after using this to prep the skin. What’s in it: peach extract Hyaluronic acid Reishi mushroom lotus extract cica ceramides much more! This product has so many awesome ingredients, it’s hard not to love! PEACH & LILY - Glass Skin Veil Mist I will give this a 5/5! Pros: can be used to refresh makeup can be used on bare skin hydrating calming gives a wonderful dewy glow smells nice Cons: $30 for a mist is a bit pricey but this mist does so much in return 💞 let me know a mist you love!

Why pH of skincare products is important?
Why pH of skincare products is important?
The pH is defined as the negative logarithm (base ten) of the concentration of free hydrogen ions in aqueous solution. The pH of skin surface ranges from 4.5 to 6 making it slightly acidic. The acidic nature of the whole skin surface was first claimed by Heuss in 1892; however, the first scientific study was carried out by Schade and Marchionini in 1928, who called it the acid mantle. The “acid mantle” protects the skin by inhibiting the growth of pathogenic organisms, regulating keratinization, desquamation and wound healing. Any disruption in the acid mantle disrupts the activity of enzymes involved in barrier function and anti-microbial protection. The skin pH and the buffering capacity of the skin surface are made up of the components of the stratum corneum as well as the secretions from sebaceous and sweat glands. Sweat is an important contributor towards skin acidity owing to its content of amino acid, lactic acid, and urea, which supplement skin NMF levels. The formation of stratum corneum barrier requires enzymes that are pH dependent. Two lipid-processing enzymes β-glucocerebrosidase and acidic sphingomyelinase require a pH of 5.6 and 4.5, respectively. An increased skin surface pH activates enzyme serine proteases, which causes degradation of corneodesmosomes and affects the skin barrier. pH also has a big impact on the skin microbiome. The bactericidal activity, because of dermicidin and nitrites in sweat, occurs optimally at pH 5.5. The resident bacterial flora changes as pH increases causing increase in population and activity of P. acnes and Staphylococcus aureus which are responsible for acne and eczema. All these result in contact dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, ichthyosis, acne vulgaris and Candida albicans infections. Products with high pH cause swelling of skin follicles affecting the permeability of the skin making it dry, sensitive, and susceptible. Most of the skincare products are formulated within the pH range of normal healthy skin except the exfoliating products that contain alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA’s), Vitamin C products and chemical peel which work at low pH. Facial oils, cleansing oils, balms are not pH dependent.
Tips from a dermatologist on sunscreen ☀️
Tips from a dermatologist on sunscreen ☀️
Let’s talk about sunscreen ☀️ What’s a good sunscreen to wear? One that is: * Broad-spectrum protection (protects against UVA and UVB rays) * SPF 30 or higher * Water resistant This will help protect your skin from early skin aging, sunburn, and skin cancer. What is the difference between chemical and physical sunscreens? Chemical sunscreens work like a sponge, absorbing the sun’s rays. They contain one or more of the following ingredients: oxybenzone, avobenzone, octisalate, octocrylene, homosalate, and octinoxate. These are often easier to rub into the skin without a white cast. Physical sunscreens (aka mineral sunscreens) act like a shield, sitting on the surface of your skin and deflecting the sun’s rays. These can come on white. They have the active ingredients zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide Reapply every 2 hours when outside in the sun ☀️ Some of my favorites: Tinted: Cerave tinted, la roche posay tinted, alastin CeraVe - Face Sheer Tint Hydrating Sunscreen SPF 30 LA ROCHE-POSAY - Anthelios 50 Mineral Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid SPF 50 ALASTIN SKINCARE - HydraTint Pro Mineral Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 36 Not tinted: colorescience, drunk elephant colorescience - Sunforgettable Total Protection Face Shield SPF 50 Sunscreen DRUNK ELEPHANT - Umbra Sheer Physical Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 What’s your favorite sunscreen?
