If I’ve skipped out on sleep to pursue other twilight pursuits — be it a Netflix marathon or hours spent manically trying to achieve the perfect bedroom feng shui — there’s a 100% guarantee there’ll be enough bags under my eyes to service every customer in Woolies during late night shopping peak hour. Curse you and your honesty, face. Stop betraying my sleep count! Since there is zero likelihood I’ll ever willingly give up on feng shui or the seven TV shows I constantly have on the go, my new higher calling in life is to find the perfect concealer to do all the hard yakka for me.

Who better to turn to than the very people whose job it is to look #infallible twenty four sev, and who also happen to spend sizeable chunks of their #blessed life at castings and on interstate and international flights? No one. To ensure your face looks like it’s been kissed by a thousand baby angels, we trawled the web to find out what concealers our favourite models swear by and these are our findings. May your fatigued heart sing.

Soo Joo, L’Oréal’s Magic Lumi Highlighting pen


The coolest model swears by L’Oréal’s Magic Lumi Highlighting pen, for light coverage every day because it has “really, really thin coverage, and make you look a little more awake and better rested.”



Katie Moore, Milk Makeup Concealer


According to Katie, “Milk Makeup Concealer is, like, my life” because it “has this technology to it that with your body heat, it melts into your skin. It’s insane; it is the best stuff I’ve ever used.”


Taylor Hill, Lancôme’s Effacernes concealer


Taylor loves Lancôme’s Effacernes concealer because “it’s super smooth and creamy with really great coverage… I feel like once I apply it, I don’t have to do it again, and I like that it doesn’t sit in the wrinkles under your eyes.”


Alanna Arrington, NARS creamy concealer


Alana Arrington says she’s been using NARS creamy concealer “since I started using makeup… It’s so good, and the tube never runs out—it lasts a long time. Plus, it’s great for on-the-go, which is perfect for my job.”


Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Clé de Peau Beauté Concealer


Rosie dots Clé de Peau Beauté Concealer under her eyes to cover dark circles”, saying it is “sometimes the only makeup I put on all day.”


Anja Rubik, La Mer’s concealer


Anja says she uses “La Mer’s concealer around the eyes and nose then, a taupe colour on my cheeks or something more rouge.”
