Whether you wear alone over your skincare and SPF lotion, or on top of your foundation, concealer is one of those game-changing products that can rescue your face after a sleepless night, during a breakout, and highlight and contour to your angles without using a cakey powder. For those who prefer a full-coverage concealer formula, you know that it can be tough to find a concealer that’s opaque enough to camouflage all of your skincare woes, but lightweight enough to avoid settling into pores and fine lines throughout the day.
Of course, aside from ample concealing power, you also want your formula to last longer than just a couple of hours—whether you sprinkle a setting powder on top or not. Cream concealers often deliver superstar concealing powers, but they often feel heavy, break apart on the skin, or clog your pores.
Opting for a weightless liquid concealer allows you to build up the product (and therefore, the coverage level) to your liking without losing the thin consistency that gives it better lasting power and better dependability. Ahead, we’ve lined up some of our favorite high-coverage liquid concealers that won’t leave you looking cakey or overly dry.

Our fashion, beauty and lifestyle coverage is equal parts informative and inspiring, and at once aspirational yet attainable.
