A stick concealer is such an important part of your makeup routine. Your concealer is the MVP of your makeup bag. If you got three hours of sleep the night before a big meeting, you know you’ll be reaching for that concealer. Or perhaps, you just lost the genetic lottery and were gifted your perpetual dark circles from your parents. Thanks, guys. Stick concealer is the fake-it-until-you-make-it for tiredness and exhaustion. It’s like what coffee is to your brain’s morning survival. It magically makes it look like you got a full eight-hours and are well-rested when you’re about ready to take a nap on your desk. Concealers also help if your chin has decided to sprout an angry-looking blemish the day before a friend’s wedding. It erases the red color and provides a canvas for your foundation to further conceal it. 

Because this is the makeup must-have, we rounded up the best stick concealers for both your under-eyes and blemishes. Concealers can be worn alone, if you want a more natural look, or layered under foundation and the rest of your makeup routine. Smooth and gentle, these concealers glide across delicate skin and erase those pesky dark circles entirely. Two out of our three picks also claim to improve and fortify your skin, thanks to their natural ingredients. Stick concealers are also great, because they aren’t liquid, so they won’t leak all over your purse if they open accidentally.
