11 Undereye Concealers That Hide Planet-Sized Circles

You know how they say that youth is wasted on the young? Well, bedtime is wasted on them, too. There are way too many tiny tots who spend time arguing with their parents about when and why they have to hit the sack. Well, kids, newsflash: One day, you'll grow up wanting more sleep (and wanting to live free of rent and other responsibilities, too). If someone told me to go to bed at 8 pm on the dot every night, I'd probably write them a thank you note.

With crazy work schedules and afternoon happy hours that sometimes lead to even happier nights (wink, wink), adults tend to put rest on the back burner. Of course, that's obviously not a good thing... we're all supposed to be getting around eight hours. Thank goodness for the editor-approved concealers ahead that make our undereye circles nearly non-existent... a reminder of those sacred second-grade days.

"Glossier Stretch brightens up my dark circles and has a dewier finish, so it doesn't cake up by mid-morning. Because it's super-thin and lightweight, it doesn't have enough coverage to conceal bright red pimples, but for around the eyes, it's my go-to." — Megan Decker, Beauty Assistant
Glossier Stretch Concealer, $18.00 Buy
"I have used Lancôme's Maquicomplet in Correcteur (the yellow one) for no fewer than five years. It's incredibly lightweight, brightens, and sets fully, so you totally forget you're wearing makeup. That reminds me, I need a re-up..." — Lexy Lebsack, Senior Beauty Editor
Lancôme Maquicomplet Complete Coverage Concealer, $31.00 Buy
"On the regular, I don't really use undereye concealers, but when I do, this is my holy grail. It's completely opaque, meaning I don't have to use a lot for full coverage, plus the product comes in 28 different shades — many of which I like to keep handy at all times for a natural-looking highlight and contour." — Brianna Arps, Branded Lifestyle Editor
L.A. Girl HD Pro Conceal, $5.00 Buy
"Waking up to a pair of deep undereye circles is never pleasant. Not only is it proof that I spend most of my night scrolling aimlessly through Twitter, but it's also a reminder that I procrastinate everything — even sleep. The one creamy, full-coverage concealer I turn to on my worst days costs less than $10 and works like magic every time I need it to." — Samantha Sasso, Beauty Writer
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Concealer, $9.99 Buy
"$70 is a lot to pay for a concealer, but this is not a concealer: This is a time machine. The creamy, full-coverage stick brightens dark circles, diffuses fine lines, and makes your face look about five years younger. I am at the point of using a Q-tip to scoop out that last few bits." — Cat Quinn, Beauty Director

"I honestly never wore concealer until this year, and I was really suspicious of it. Wasn't foundation under my eyes enough? This Charlotte Tilbury concealer convinced me that I had been wrong. It has the ability to actually illuminate the skin under my eyes and make me look like I haven't been up late Googling random things, like the easiest way to move to New Zealand. With a foam applicator that's super simple to use and a seemingly endless supply of product packed into a pretty gold case, I can't recommend this one enough." — Rachel Lubitz, Senior Beauty Writer
Charlotte Tilbury Magic Away, $32.00 Buy
"Concealing is a three-step process for dark, cavernous under-eyes like mine: I go in with my favorite heavy-duty concealer first, then set with a generous amount of powder to keep it from creasing on my oily skin, then brighten up the area with this... brightener. A couple dots around the inner corners and just beneath the eye, tapped in gently with my index finger, and I look downright refreshed. (Emphasis on look.)" — Rachel Krause, Senior Beauty Writer

"The concealer has the power of the brand's cult classic Secret Camouflage concealer (a two-pan cream that I find cumbersome to use daily), but with a dewy, natural finish. It also has a plush, flexible applicator that makes it easy to dab all over the face without having to re-dip for more." — Mi-Anne Chan, Beauty Writer & Host
Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Ultra Longwear Concealer, $28.00 Buy
"For dark under-eye circles, reach for a highly-pigmented concealer like this one from Bobbi Brown. The formula is thicker than any others in this slideshow, but thanks to its full-coverage finish, you can use less. Just a dab will do." — Chan
Bobbi Brown Corrector, $28.00 Buy
"I love NARS' Soft Matte Concealer for covering breakouts or acne scars, but this liquid continues to be my favorite for my eye area. It actually looks like skin so you can fool everyone into thinking your undereyes are really that bright. I tap it onto my lid as a primer, too." — Quinn
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer, $30.00 Buy
"I know this price tag seems ridiculous for an undereye concealer, but my commitment to this dark-circle obliterator knows no bounds — it's just that good. Similar to YSL's Touche Éclat, this lightweight, creamy formula hides and brightens, but with a little more coverage than the competition." — Sasso
