If you want a dewy glow, always opt for a hydrating under-eye concealer that is preferably light and buildable. Here’s why.

If you are naturally shadowed, mostly sleep-deprived or on the wrong side of the battle against zits and scars, then you better arm yourself with a power-packed hydrating under-eye concealer.

Your newly maturing skin can no longer pass off a slathering of heavy and dry makeup without you looking like a zombie. Your new fine lines and loose skin needs all the TLC you can give in the form of hydration.

As your skin matures the production of newer skin cells starts slowing down, making it crucial for you to add anti-wrinkle and moisturising serums in your skincare routines. However, at some point, you will have to accept your new creases and take the help of a hydrating under-eye concealer.

Formulas with hyaluronic acid and glycerin are perfect for a newly matured skin as they reduce the appearance of fine lines and prevent creasing. Basically, your skin will benefit most if you opt for a hydrating under-eye concealer.

4. NARS | Radiant Creamy Concealer | S$46

However, the only downside is that it does oxidise slightly after five to six hours and becomes a bit dry. So the key is to spray your face with a hydrating mist after a few hours.

This ophthalmologist tested anti-aging concealer is perfect for the ladies who do not prefer full coverage and are happy with a natural finish. It works to dull down fine lines and creases.

11. Yves Saint Laurent | Touche Eclat Radiance Perfecting Pen | S$56

This has become a cult-favourite cream serum, thanks to the light-reflecting minerals that can brighten your shadowed areas. And we certainly think this is one to pick if you’re looking for a hydrating under-eye concealer. 

Remember that while buying a concealer, especially if you have maturing skin opt for one that hydrates and is buildable. You do not want cakey-looking concealer that sits under your eyes and irritates them.

Also make sure you keep in mind the consistency, shade and price as you go about shopping.
