Fact: It's the 21st century, and "light, medium, and dark" just won't do when it comes to makeup shades anymore (or, ever for that matter). The good news is that while some brands are seriously lacking when it comes to inclusive makeup shades, there are other trailblazers leading the way. Brands like Fenty Beauty, Nars, and MAC Cosmetics all get the fact that beauty products need to cater to each and every skin tone, be it fair, olive, honey-toned, or deep (to list a few). Concealer is the cornerstone of any good makeup routine, so we decided to round up seven of the most inclusive concealer varieties on the internet.
Whether you like a matte formula that's got grip, or a dewy, sheer finish, we've got you sorted.
If there's one woman we can rely on for a diverse range of makeup shades, it's Rihanna. The Fenty Beauty Match Stix Matte Skin Sticks are creamy, pigmented, and matte enough to last through a 12-hour workday in the height of summer. They work well all over as a foundation, or as a contour if that's what you're after.
Hydrating and creamy, this iteration from Kat Von D's eponymous line boasts 21 shades that range from fair, pinky-toned complexions to dark, neutral shades. It's a great all-rounder, covering dark circles and pimples with ease.
If you find your concealer cracks or settles, this formula might be your saving grace. It's loaded up with jojoba oil, so you can expect a creamy, dewy finish. If you're using it on a giant blemish, lock it down with a little translucent powder.
This stuff does not budge. It's also got great pigment payoff, making it ideal for covering blemishes that other concealers can't. If you want to use it under the eyes, prep with an eye cream prior to prevent creasing.
It would be criminal for us to talk about diversity and not include MAC Cosmetics. With 16 colors, you're sure to find depth and undertone that suits, without compromising on pigment and finish.
Isn't it grand that the best concealer in the world comes in 22 diverse shades? Good one, Francious Nars. It literally covers everything, looks natural, and lasts all day.
Coming in at a whopping 30 shades strong, Kylie's concealer certainly caters to all skin tones. The finish is neutral, and the coverage buildable. Why not grab a lip kit while you're paying for shipping, too?
