Beauty Guide: The Best Concealers For Tired Moms

Let's face it - being a mom is hard hard work.  I have 3 little rambunctious monkeys who I love oh so dearly.   Add to the mix - piano lessons, school meetings, room mom for both the older kids, Mommy & Me Gymboree class 3xs a week for the little tyke, and church service projects, you have one exhausted me who is always running on fumes.  And I run a company on top of running the household.  I am so very thankful that I have an amazing husband who is always happy and ready to help out with anything - from technology for my company to throwing in a load of laundry.

My lifesaver for looking like I got more than 4 hours of sleep?  Good concealers for my under eye circles! I've tried plenty and my favorites are the ones that I've profiled above.

I love using the Smashbox 'Photo Op' Under Eye Brightener for almost every day use.  It's affordable and works so well at brightening up tired eyes.

The Clinique All About Eyes Concealer is great because not only does it cover dark circles well, it comes in 8 different shades.  And at $18, also very affordable.

The Bobbi Brown Tinted Eye Brightener does a great job at concealing dark circles, but it also has a great applicator tip to really get into the tiny areas under your eyes.  Love that it comes in 10 shades.

The Yves St. Laurent 'Touche Eclat' Radiant Touch works for more than just the under eye circles.  Perfect for the hollow of the chin, the contour of your lips, and the sides of your nose.  A little more spendy at $42, but it works well for the rest of your face.

And the final one that I just LOVE - the Cle de Peau Beaute Concealer.  It is expensive at $70 - but it is the BEST.  I certainly don't use it all the time - only when I'm going out for a work function, a nice dinner out, or for a fancy event.  It has won major awards year after year for being one of the best concealers out there.  It does hide all imperfection, blends flawlessly, and comes in 6 shades.

What is your favorite concealer?
