Whoever said that monotasking is the new multi-tasking wasn’t talking about makeup. Sure, the art of monotasking helps to keep you more mindful throughout the day, but when it comes to your concealer, you have high double-duty expectations—and rightfully so.
“As a makeup artist for the past 15 years, I love nothing more than cosmetics that serve their purpose to cover and also heal the skin at the same time,” says Jessa Blades, a natural beauty expert and makeup artist.
Whether your biggest concern is dark circles, puffiness, or fine lines, the under eye area requires extra TLC, so healing oils and moisturizing ingredients are essential. Blades recommends looking for a concealer with natural and organic skin-care ingredients such as jojoba seed oil, moringa oil, shea butter, and calendula, because these star ingredients help the concealer to blend into the skin versus sitting on top of it.
Here, the formulas that work double-duty under your eyes to help you look your best while giving you the most bang for your buck.

This easy-to-use concealer tube is filled with organic algae to help brighten, coffee to stimulate, and antioxidants to hydrate, firm, and cover for a really natural finish.
Thanks to moringa oil and avocado oil in this concealer, it has a creamy texture and is loaded with antioxidants to help conceal and reduce the appearance of dark circles. Each pot comes with two shades so you can customize one appropriate that’s for your skin tone.
Blades likes to use this product as foundation and concealer. Sweet almond seed oil, jojoba oil, and coconut oil give the under eye area a boost of hydration without leaving a heavy, greasy finish that can actually accentuate the area.
Botanical ingredients like calendula and shea butter deeply hydrate to help ward off fine lines and keep your under eyes nourished, while the pigments provide a lightweight coverage to nix any dark circles under eyes.
This do-it-all cream is great for use under the eyes, because its ingredient label is packed full of hydration boosters. The combination of castor, coconut, and jojoba oils act like a triple threat against dryness. How’s that for double duty?
