WHY SO MANY DIFFERENT COLOR CORRECTING CONCEALERS?
When I first started doing makeup I remember being confused because there were so many different colors of concealer. I didn’t understand why you needed a green one, or even an orange. My logical way of thinking made me think that I would look discolored when in reality those concealers were fixing my discoloration. WHAT?!?!? YES I KNOW!!!
One thing you must know about me is that I am a curious person. I will look up something and research it until I know it perfectly. Another thing I will do is try it. The worst that can happen is that the product will not work RIGHT?
I’m going to explain a little about these different types of concealers to you and a few tips to make the best out of them:
YELLOW CONCEALER: This is my FAVORITE! Yellow concealer is great for hiding any purple, dark marks, bruises and dark circles under the eyes. It helps brighten your skin tone and will make you look more awake.
ORANGE CONCEALER: This concealer is awesome for the person who has skin blemishes like marks on the face due to pimples or any discoloration in your skin tone. This is not really ideal for the lighter skin tones but can be used to help with contouring if used right.
GREEN CONCEALER: This type of concealer is perfect for red marks such as Pimples, rosacea, or even sunburn!
PURPLE CONCEALER: Purple is my favorite color but unfortunately I don’t really need this one. Purple concealer is used for the yellow skin tones. It helps removing the yellow undertones.
NEUTRAL CONCEALER: This is my everyday concealer. Its perfect for the person who might not have as much skin discoloration or skin marks. Its great for the daily wear and has awesome coverage.
TIP: WHEN BUYING A CONCEALER MAKE SURE YOU BUY A SHADE LIGHTER THAN YOUR SKIN TONE.
Can you mix them together? Yes you can. I DO!
