8 concealers loved by Bollywood’s top celebrity makeup artists


Makeup go-tos to celebrities like Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, Priyanka Chopra, Janhvi Kapoor and Anushka Sharma help you pick your next concealer
A concealer is on every makeup lover’s ‘things I’d take to an island’ list, and rightly so. It can help you fake a full night’s sleep in a jiffy, mask unwanted and unexpected acne and hide anything you want to keep out of sight. But finding the right concealer can be a bit of a struggle. The perfect one should blend seamlessly into your skin, suit your skin type and not become cake-y or ashy over time. We spoke to eight Bollywood celebrity makeup artists (the ones that wield their brushes on stars like Janhvi Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Deepika Padukone) about the concealers they trust most, and got them to dish out their best application tips.
