Are white sneakers the black pump of 2021? Before you respond, hear us out. Whether it’s an outdoor summer party, a casual day of running errands, or a night out with a little black dress, a white sneaker is the perfect option. By nature of it being a sneaker, comfort is already sorted out and doesn’t need a second thought. And because it’s white, it will match with literally everything in your wardrobe, even if you opt for an all-white ensemble (in fact, that usually makes the look even better). Wear them to the office, a gathering, or the grocery store—white sneakers are one of the best investments you can make in your closet.

We ask a lot of the perfect facial concealer: It has to brighten, hide dark circles, camouflage blemishes, blur fine lines and wrinkles, and ultimately, make us look less tired no matter how little sleep we may have gotten the night before. From illuminating to color correcting, industrial strength to weightless, there’s a concealer for everyone. In fact many of us are ditching full coverage foundations for tactical touch-ups. A well-placed concealer might be all we need to feel ready and fresh-faced. Here’s are ten options available on the market.
