Working all night is something most of us are faced with at least once within the week. It may be an important deadline or an emergency meeting. The worst part about staying up well into the evening is that your face (dark circles, pimples, and whatnot) will tell that you did.
Trust these concealers to keep your blemishes mum—hide those imperfections with creams that are forgiving on days when your skin isn’t.
Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer
This concealer may not look so intimidating from the packaging. What looks like a lip gloss from the outside is actually an effective formula for covering up darkness and wrinkles underneath the eyes. Light and easy to blend, this product gives off a very subtle glow that creates the impression of seven-hour slumber.
NARS. Available at Rustan’s The Beauty Source. For more information, visit their website
Bloom Secret Weapon Concealer Kit
No bigger than a credit card and thin enough to slip in your wallet, the Bloom Secret Weapon Concealer Kit solves any issue you might have the morning after. The palette features not only a concealer cream, but also correctors that neutralize redness and darkness before covering them up. It also comes with a small brush that can be stowed away in the kit, best for last-minute and mobile concealing jobs.
Bloom. Available at all Beauty Bar outlets. For more information, visit their website.
Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit
Bobbi Brown likes it simple and it shows: This product offers a quick solution for days when you don’t want to put much makeup on. No need to retouch with this one, as it offers a cream concealer on one side and a pressed powder on the other to set the former and keep it from going anywhere else.

Benefit Perk Up Artist
Best for darkness, the Benefit Perk Up Artist is a three-step solution to better skin. Inside the box is a concealer, corrector, and brightener that when used altogether will make sure your late night forays are unknown to others. Thick in formulation but blendable enough with the double-ended blush, this concealer won’t make you think twice before piling up.
Benefit. Available at Rustan’s The Beauty Source, Glorietta 4 and Greenbelt 5. For more information, visit their website.
L’Oreal True Match Concealer
Don’t let this small tube deceive you. The L’Oreal True Match Concealer is very opaque and does a good job with hiding dark spots, redness, and other imperfections. The gentle formula neither irritates pimples nor cakes up on dry spots. A tip: use two tubes of this concealer. One for covering up your problem areas and another one in a lighter shade for brightening up the corners of your eyes.
L’Oreal. Available at SM Department stores, Beauty by SM, SM Makati, and all Personal Care Exchange outlets. For more information, visit their website.
