    Fortunately for us, celebrity makeup artist Autumn Moultrie shared the drugstore concealer she used on the 56-year-old to brighten and conceal dark circles for her recent People photoshoot. Moultrie used the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Radiant Concealer and it’s just $10.

    “I wanted to reflect her as the goddess that she truly is and enhance her gorgeous dark brown radiance,” said Moultrie in an interview for People. “It has a blurring, light-reflecting formulation that is terrific for women over 40. It minimizes fines lines—of which she has very few!”

    The top-rated smoothing concealer comes in 15 various shades ranging from cool to warm tones. Unlike many traditional concealers, this one is formulated with a hydrating serum and glycerin, a common skincare ingredient that works to moisturize, smooth, and soften the skin. Together both ingredients also work to minimize the appearance of imperfections, reduce dark under-eye circles, and brighten the skin to create an overall radiant-looking complexion. The best part? The formula dries down to a nice matte finish and doesn’t settle into fine lines, according to the brand.

    “It’s important to look for products that contain all three (humectants, emollients, and occlusive) because they work together to moisturize the skin,” said Hadley King, M.D., a board-certified dermatologist based in New York City, in a previous interview for Prevention. “Humectants (like glycerin) are substances that bind water into the outer layer of the skin, helping to lock in moisture.”

    Amazon customers have also been loving the hydrating concealer giving it a 4.2-star rating and stellar reviews.

    “I am 50-years-old and I think I’ve tried about 100 different concealers to cover the very dark circles under my eyes and every single one of them, whether they were $2 or $50, all cake up in the lines under my eyes,” wrote one satisfied Amazon customer. “This is the only concealer that does not cake and it’s very moisturizing and actually covers. Love it!”

    “This is a wonderful concealer. It covers beautifully without looking heavy or cakey! I am so happy to recommend this. I am 77-years-old and it even covers my age,” added another reviewer.

        So there you have it! A celebrity and professional makeup artist-approved concealer that will instantly brighten up your under-eyes.
