these are by far the best concealers for dry skin

Have you ever applied a concealer & been impressed with its texture, only to look in the mirror hours later & realize it’s become cracked & creased throughout the day? So frustrating! Especially when the product you purchased claimed to be hydrating & promised to provide flawless, natural all-day coverage.

Many cosmetic brands produce & promote moisturizing formulas that simply don’t live up to their name, leaving consumers with dry skin disappointed — not to mention potentially even at risk for skin irritation, inflammation, itchiness or redness.

At tarte™, we understand how important it is to have access to products that follow through on their promise. We understand that dry skin is more than just an inconvenience, it’s a skincare concern — & we prioritize it as such.

Today, we’re going to help you find the best concealer for dry skin so you can stop feeling duped & start delighting in skin that feels hydrated & radiant.

The secret to finding a concealer that will soothe & soften your skin while still evening skin tone is keeping your eye out for three primary ingredients:

what to look for in a hydrating concealer

  1. oils & butters

    These ingredients not only moisturize the skin, but they actually form a protective barrier that seals in hydration for hours & hours. We recommend keeping your eye out for ingredients like maracuja oil, jojoba oil, argan oil, shea butter, mango seed butter & almond butter. Your skin will feel the best it's ever felt with these incredible high-performance naturals™ on your side!

  2. vitamins

    Vitamin C, vitamin E, & vitamin D are all miracle ingredients when it comes to moisture. When on the hunt for a hydrating under eye concealer or an effective cover for those pesky acne scars, we definitely recommend keeping these top of mind. They help enhance skin’s collagen for a plumper & youthful-looking complexion, while also aiding in skin cell regrowth — an essential part of your skin’s natural hydration process.

  3. botanicals

    We’re firm believers that the most effective moisturizing concealers are made with ingredients produced by Mother Nature herself. Plant-based ingredients like aloe vera, chamomile, seaweed, cucumber & oats are all mind-blowingly effective moisturizers & are used around the world to combat the signs of aging & leave skin silky, bright & dewy.

the five best concealers for dry skin

So where can you find products that have all three of these magic ingredients? tarte™ was founded on providing customers with natural & safe products that include everything they need in one concealer. Here are our top five favorite concealers for dry skin so you can stop worrying about your skin & start worrying about filling up that social calendar!

  1. shape tape™ concealer

    Formulated with a dynamic duo of shea butter & mango butter, this is a clear choice for best moisturizing concealer. And to add to its appeal, shape tape&traade; provides 16-hour wear, leaving skin crease-free & supple all day long. We invite you to try it & discover why it was voted the #1 concealer in the Allure Readers' Choice Awards!

  2. shape tape™ ultra creamy concealer

    A concealer & eye cream all in one? Yep, we did that! This formula includes prickly pear & a trio of butters (mango, avocado & shea butter), so there’s no way we could make a list of best hydrating concealers without shining a light on this moisturizing megastar. After a single use, we’re confident you’ll agree with the 100% of tartelettes who say it feels hydrating & lightweight.

  3. hydrocealer™ concealer

    Our exclusive hydroflex technology™ makes this concealer for dry skin unlike any other. The formula moves with your skin so it’ll never cake or restrict the natural movement of your facial expressions. We tell our tartelettes to think of this concealer as the tinted moisturizer of concealer! It’s buildable, lightweight & provides a natural, glowing finish. Oh, & did we mention we included caffeine to fight puffiness & inflammation? We thought of everything with this one!

  4. creaseless concealer™

    Some days our skin has a mind of its own. Blemishes, dry spots & dark under eye circles appear out of nowhere, throwing a wrench in our morning routine. For these days, buildable formulas aren’t the best solution. You need a concealer that’s heavy-duty & hydrating — & that’s what this formula is for! Maracuja oil makes skin firmer, brighter & smoother, while mineral pigments keep your complexion immaculate.

  5. Amazonian clay waterproof 12-hour concealer

    The twist-up stick packaging of this product makes it super convenient for touch-ups on the go. You don’t even need a brush to apply — simply dab & blend with your finger! Simply tuck it in your pocket or into a compartment of your purse for ultimate peace of mind! You’ll love the ultra-creamy finish this concealer provides, & the fact that it’s fortified with vitamin A for high-performance water retention.

the two best under eye concealers for dry skin

Say goodbye to under eye bags & hello to dewy, hydrated skin! If you find yourself applying under eye concealer but often end up with flakiness or bumps by midday, it’s time to switch up your product. Here are the two best concealer for dry under eyes for flawless & hydrating coverage:

  1. colored clay CC undereye corrector

    We don’t call this concealer the ultimate dark circle defense™ for nothing! It’s packed with all-natural clays that diffuse the appearance of dark circles & enhance brightness. Plus, sodium hyaluronate & squalane leave your skin glistening with hydration. Prepare to glow!

  2. skin treat concealer

    A nourishing formula with a natural matte finish? What’s not to love? Macadamia oil absorbs deep into the skin for intense hydration while diamond powder blurs & diffuses light for an airbrushed look others will think you woke up with!
