The Seven Best Cheap Concealer...

1. Best For Light Coverage 

You never want concealer to look cakey or be visible. Instead, a light yet long-lasting concealer is best. That’s why I’d recommend Maybelline’s Instant Anti Age Eraser Concealer.

Formulated with coloured pigments that visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines and dark spots, as well as hydrating goji berry extracts, this concealer makes your eyes look brighter. Plus, it boasts a handy sponge tip that allows you to easily blend in your makeup. A flawless finish awaits. 

2. Best For Medium Coverage 

If your skin could do with a serious pick me, then the NYX Professional Makeup HD Photogenic Concealer Wand is the way to go.

Offering a medium to heavy coverage, it expertly covers up and colour corrects imperfections, discolouration and dark circles. Don’t worry though, despite its rich pigmentation, it still feels lightweight and looks very natural.   

3. Best For Under Eyes 

When it comes to the best cheap concealer to hide dark under-eye circles, though, you can’t go wrong with the Sleek MakeUP Lifeproof Concealer.

Its easy-to-blend formula doesn’t just cover blemishes and dark circles, it also makes your skin look lighter and brighter. A winning combo for fighting those pesky dark circles. Plus, you can use it to contour and highlight too! 

4. Best For Colour Correction 

Concealing is one thing, but we all know how crucial colour-correction is for getting a flawless base. That’s why every beauty lover should own the wet n wild CoverAll Concealer Palette.

With four different coloured concealers, you can counter redness, dullness and uneven tonesGreen neutralises redness, whilst yellow can cover up purple-toned blemishes like under-eye circles and veins. You can then use the white and skin-coloured shades to brighten and highlight. Even the most tenacious blemish will be hidden!

5. Best For Hiding Imperfections 

Concealers come in all shapes and sizes now, with creams, liquids and palettes available. Originally, though, they were a stick – and this classic formula has stuck around because it really does work. The Rimmel Hide the Blemish Concealer is proof of that!

Ultra-creamy, this is one of the best cheap concealers for camouflaging imperfections. It’s adept at covering pimples, taking the shine off a T-zone and brightening the under eyes. On a no make-up day, it’s all you need for your base with a bit of clever blending. 

6. Best For Brightening 

Sometimes, it’s precision you need when it comes to covering up. That’s the L’Oreal Perfection True Match Concealer’s forte.

Enriched with caffeine, it works to cover up and correct the appearance of dark circles, imperfections and signs of fatigue. Plus, the brightening formula adapts to your skin for a natural, seamless finish 

7. Best For Staying Put 

No one wants to use a concealer that doesn’t last. So, if you’re looking for something that will stay put all night long, then opt for the Barry M Cosmetics All Night Long Concealer.

This full-coverage liquid concealer is enriched with vitamin E, so it not only illuminates your skin, but it moisturises it too. No matter what you get up, your skin will stay free of imperfections and discolouration all night long.  

Those are the seven best cheap concealers to give you flawless, blemish-free skin.
