Creamy concealer, Rs 1,927, Nars

There's a reason why NARS' Creamy Concealer has earned a spot inside the beauty bags of the biggest make-up artists.

The retoucher p en, Rs 2,097, Charlotte Tilbury

A concealer that does exactly what it says on the tin.

The rose gold casing is tres chic too. Buy at Charlotte Tilbury


Studio finish SPF 35 concealer, Rs 1,342, MAC

A single layer of MAC's infamous concealer is enough to cloak anything from dark circles to acne flareups. The best part? It protects as it covers thanks to the added SPF 35. Available in 23 shades, the creamy formula floats over pores and bumps instead of drawing attention to them. Ideal. Buy at MAC
