When choosing a good concealer to get you through the summer there are a lot of factors involved. You need something that delivers on coverage, doesn’t cake or crease (especially around the eyes), stays put all day and supports your fresh skin summer glow. It’s no easy task. You want a concealer to do all of the above and still be lightweight and not feel heavy on the skin. This is my tried and tested Alex Edit of the best concealers for summer. And as you’ll see, I do love the effortless application of these stick concealers and pot formats compared to liquids.

A classic formula that’s so easy to apply with your hands you can actually use it instead of foundation – applying it only where you need to. Formulated with skin nourishing coconut oil, beeswax and jojoba, it has an incredibly light, sheer and buildable texture. On a separate note, RMS Beauty’s potted tints are similarly beautiful in texture and formula and create that fresh summer glow on the skin. Read more in my considered beauty edit.
Another multi-function concealer that doubles as a foundation stick. An incredible lightweight, buildable and non-cakey texture that feels nourishing as it glides onto the skin. What I love most about this is that despite its light texture it actually delivers brilliant coverage under the eyes and for blemishes.
A similar format and formula to the RMS Uncover-Up. For under the eyes this is brilliant – a lovely creamy texture that doesn’t cake or crease. It builds up and blends so well. Another great choice that you can add to your handbag and touch up with clean fingers throughout the day. If you need to set this, especially around the eyes, apply a little of the By Terry Hydra Powder for extra staying power and to promote a soft focus effect.
Honestly, this is one of the best summer concealers out there. It has this super lightweight and watery texture (formulated with hyaluronic acid) that feels refreshing and hydrating on the skin. Its soft texture doesn’t drag and glides smoothly which is a dream! Again, this offers great coverage under the eyes and over fine lines and wrinkles. You also get this radiant finish on the skin for a luminous summer glow.
