Not everyone can have it all this summer. These concealers have you covered.

  1. Almay Wake Up Undereye Concealer

Your friends are, once again, telling you about their travels abroad, their healthy, happy relationships, and their professional and academic accomplishments. You text “so happy! so proud of my babes! Xoxo” to the group message as you’re rolling into your dead end job; hungover after a disappointing Tinder date with what’s his name. With a soft brush applicator, this concealer is perfect to swipe on in your car minutes before you step into work as you try to brush the knots out of your hair. Forgot to grab a coffee on your way? This makeup has you covered. Almay’s formula literally contains caffeine so you don’t have to rub coffee grounds on your skin anymore. Amazing!

  1. Maybelline Age Rewind Eraser

Wow, even your mom is sending you pictures of her out doing amazing things. She took a flight out to Cali with dad and she’s trying Sashimi for the first time. You never thought you’d be using anti-aging products in your early twenties, but the bags under your eyes are darker than your raw-fish-eating mother’s. Coming in at around six dollars, this easy-apply concealer comes in six blendable shades. Goji berry and haloxyl (a special ingredient that targets skin discoloration) are active ingredients in this concealer’s formula, giving you a lot of bang for your buck.

  1. Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer

If you’re into financial masochism, this thirty dollar concealer comes with a whopping .22 oz of makeup. This cult classic is a favorite of professional makeup artists, actors and actresses, models, and people who make more money than you ever will in your life. You’ll get upset after looking at your checking account post-purchase, but it’s okay because you can just cover up your stressed skin with this liquid money.

Ah, what a time to be alive…
