Best Cruelty Free Concealing Products

Happy Tuesday! It’s Top 10 Tuesday. Today I’m sharing the Top 10 Cruelty Free Concealing Products. These are the products that I feel do a good job of concealing and brightening, as well as setting concealer. I’ve got two great vegan finds for you, too.

Top 10 Cruelty Free Concealing Products

1. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics R0 Skin Conceal
The OCC Concealer is really great! I only need a tiny bit to hide dark circles. Plus, it’s vegan.

2. Silk Naturals Flattery Illuminating Perfecting Powder
It’s got a hint of pink, and a few fine interference colors- mainly gold, blue and purple.  It perks up a dull complexion and adds just a little bit of shimmer. It’s a great finishing powder that doesn’t get too dry. It’s also vegan.

3. Illamasqua White Light Skin Base Lift
This is a brightening concealer to lift, illuminate, and create flawless coverage. Paraben free, sulfate free, and phthalate free.

4. NARS Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder
You already know that I love this and I’ve raved about it repeatedly. It’s a fantastic finishing powder to blur imperfections.

5. bareMinerals Stroke of Light Eye Brightener
This is a nice eye brightener to help diffuse darkness from under the eyes.

6. Meow Cosmetics Undereye Concealer
Meow’s Undereye concealer comes in almost as many shades as their foundation! It’s silky and works well at hiding dark circles.

7.  Dr. Brandt Dark Circles Away Collagen Eye Serum
I like using this to blend out a concealer, such as NARS Chantilly. I hate the design of the full size as the roller ball is gross, but I really like the product. It’s a tinted serum.

8. NARS Chantilly Concealer
It’s hard to beat a stick concealer like this. Dot it at the bottom of your occipital bone under the eyes and blend upwards, using a serum or moisturizer. Perfect!

9. It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer
This is a great concealer! I wish that it was light enough for me. It’s just too dark. The texture is great and I highly recommend it if it comes in a shade that matches you. You can see my swatch of it in my Best Ways to use e.l.f. Makeup Mist & Set post (this is a great dupe for MAC Fix+).

10. Too Faced Absolutely Flawless Concealer
This is another good concealer. The texture is thick so you’ll need something like e.l.f. Makeup Mist & Set or Dr. Brandt Dark Circles away to blend it out.

Graftobian HD High-Definition Glamour Creme Palette in Ultra Light

Graftobian HD High-Definition Glamour Creme Palette in Ultra Light
This is technically a foundation palette but it works really well as a concealer for under the eyes, too! Plus, it’s small so it easily fits into a makeup bag to take with you.

Best Tools for Concealing

Best Tools for Concealing

1. Crown Brush Makeup Powder Puffs
I use powder puffs with setting / finishing powders to set my concealer as well as to set any foundations.

2. Beauty Junkees Makeup Sponges
I use these wet to apply foundation and concealer, and you can use them dry to pat / roll on finishing / setting powder.

3. 1. Sigma Beauty E35 Brush
I like to use this brush to blend out products under the eye.

My Three Tricks For Concealing

  1. Have your foundation / face product on first.
  2. Apply the concealer in a downward shaped triangle so that you don’t end up with reverse raccoon eye.
  3. Use a setting powder on top.

  • I pulled up this post since I went back to the NARS Concealer(Immaculate) in Chantilly(So happy I did, it just came and it’s great) So I needed your tips and the tools are great, thank you. Wanted to ask you, so you suggest applying the Chanitlly and then using a moisturizer or serum to blend it right? That’s a great idea, as it’s a drier concealer-which I actually love, if it’s way too creamy it creases on me, and the NARS doesn’t crease. Do you recommend the Supergoop eye cream applied prior to concealer, really need to get something for the eyes but regular moisturizers under the eyes many times give me milia(those tiny white bumps which I hate, my dermatologist has to take them off) Right now I’ll try to use my COVER FX Mattifying as a base. Thanks for suggesting the Sigma E35 brush!

  • I Like the Too Faced concealer and I also like the Bare Minerals Stroke of Light that I got in a kit once.

  • The Occipital bone is located at the lower back of the cranium, applying concealer there would be absurd. The area of which you are referring to consists of two bones: Zygomatic and Infraorbital. It may read as rather troll-like, but my only intention is to save you the embarrassment of advising your readers to apply concealer at the nape.

    • Lol! no worries! When I asked my aesthetician, that’s what she told me it was called. But regardless, what I meant was the bone area below the eye.

  • Excellent video! Thank you, I’m rubbish with concealers so will try these techniques. I’m also going to get my hands on the Illamasqua and OCC concealers.

  • You look beautiful in your pictures. I like that softer lip on you. I never talk about the OCC concealer so I was glad to be able to share it today too. I’m surprised that IT in the lightest shade doesn’t work for you but you are so so fair.

  • I’m usually so obsessed with Too Faced, I’m shocked that I’ve never tried their concealers! **adds to her ULTA shopping list**

  • I seriously must try that OCC concealer! Great idea to show the tools too!!! That makes a huge difference with how concealer turns out. 🙂

  • AMAZING list and so helpful with the tools too! I adore a fluffy brush for concealing. I use one from Sephora that is synthetic. It’s great to see that a good assortment of CF concealers are out there.
