Concealers are like men—once you find a really good one, you don’t let go. But what if you haven’t found The One just yet? What if your life feels like an endless search for the perfect creamy, non-creasing concealer in the exact right shade for your skin tone?
If you’ve yet to discover the concealer you want to Netflix and chill with for the rest of your life, fear not. Why don't you take a cue from some of your favourite It girls? We’ve gathered seven cool girl–approved concealers ahead, vouched for and vetted by the likes of Olivia Culpo, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and more. These girls know their beauty stuff—and sometimes an intro from a friend (well, celeb we wish were a friend) is all it takes to find the right product.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, possessor of perpetually sun-kissed hair and glowing skin, told InStyle she dots Clé de Peau Beauté Concealer (£52) under her eyes to cover her dark circles—in fact, she swears that sometimes it’s the only makeup she’ll put on all day. One can dream.
We’ve learned more than we could have ever hoped to know about Kylie Jenner’s extensive beauty ritual, thanks to the launch of her app. One such gem happens to be her foundation choice: Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer (£23), which she dots under her eyes, into the corners, down the tip of her nose, and right on her cupid’s bow; then, she blends it all in with a brush.
Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale told us exclusively that for a night out, she swears by Kevyn Aucoin’s Sensual Skin Enhancer (£35). The creamy foundation-concealer hybrid can be used as either or, and gives a full-coverage finish that covers almost anything. (Fun fact: Kim Kardashian West also swears by this product to camouflage her under-eye circles. Supposedly, her makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic introduced her to the game-changing product.)
Our fascination with Quantico star and Bollywood veteran Priyanka Chopra grows with each passing day. (Plus, Chopra told us she mixes her own face masks—a DIY junkie after our own hearts!) Her concealer of choice? She tells T Magazine it’s Bobbi Brown’s Creamy Concealer (£25) in Honey, which she layers under her MAC Powder Foundation (£22) in shade NC43.
Actress and model Emily Ratajkowski has the kind of effortless beauty only possessed by cool girls, and we’re constantly in awe of her dewy, perfect skin situation. She told Into the Gloss she uses Make Up For Ever’s 5 Camouflage Cream (£28), which she says she discovered in a dire time of need. “I found it one time that I had a huge casting, and I had a bad breakout,” she says. “So I went to Sephora for help and they gave me that palette. It saved my life.”
Brow inspirer and Byrdie contributor Olivia Culpo told us that she swears by Murad’s Acne Treatment Concealer (£15) to cover up blemishes. “It’s a medicated concealer that contains a tiny bit of salicylic acid, so it treats the area and covers the blemish at the same time,” she says. “It’s one of my staples!” Sold.
