While foundations may have a better reputation when it comes to delivering optimum coverage, no look can be complete without concealers. As true unsung heroes of the complexion category, concealers do magic at disguising the look of tired-looking under eyes, blemishes, discolouration and acne scars.

We’re talking finish and longevity. A little can go a long way with the right concealer so, to cater to your lifestyle and makeup needs, we’ve rounded up the best budge-proof concealers for you to consider testing out and comparing.
