The right concealer is an absolute makeup bag must-have, on hand to help mask dark undereye circles, cover up blemishes and help lift and brighten your complexion.

But when you struggle with dry skin, some concealers can end up feeling heavy, looking cakey, or actually emphasising your dry patches of skin – not exactly the fresh-faced look you were hoping for.

If your skin tends to lean towards the dry side, or you’ve been struggling with the effects of the cold winter weather, switching to a hydrating concealer is the perfect solution to help mask any unwanted pigmentation whilst still keeping your skin feeling moisturised and soft.

Honest Beauty's hydrating concealer is perfect for dry skin

If you want to go one better, Honest Beauty’s Concealer, £4.60 here (was £23), combines both makeup and skincare in one to create a product that not only provides you with coverage, but helps nourish your skin whilst you wear it too, unlike some makeup products which can actually dry your skin out further or cause breakouts, leaving you in a vicious circle.

The concealer, which comes from Jessica Alba’s clean and sustainable brand Honesty Beauty, is a medium-coverage concealer that’s hydrating and nourishing on your skin, and is enriched with a blend of powerful actives to help treat the skin complaint you’re covering.

It’s packed with niacinamide, which minimises enlarged pores, improves uneven skin tone, softens fine lines and wrinkles and diminishes dullness, vitamin E which keeps your skin’s barrier intact and makes your skin look fuller, and hyaluronic acid and shea butter which both intensely hydrate your complexion.

The concealer combines skincare and makeup in one

Despite its impressive ingredients list, the concealer is now ultra-affordable too, after having its price slashed from £23 to £4.60 here in LookFantastic’s major beauty sale.

Shoppers have already been snapping it up, with one saying: “I’ve been looking for a concealer that will work on my dry skin for ages and I’ve finally found it. It’s really hydrating but doesn’t crease like some concealers.”

Shoppers say the concealer is great for concealing dark circles

Whilst another added: “Shade caramel is good for colour concealing dark circles, then using a lighter shade on top. If you have dry skin this is great, doesn't feel dry or or highlight any dry patches.”

However, due to its popularity there are several shades already sold out, so if you’ve missed out on the right hue for your skin tone, you could always check out e.l.f’s Hydrating Camo Concealer, £7 here, which is still easy on your budget and is available in 25 different colours across a whole range of skin tones and undertones.
