There used to just be one type of concealer—the skin-coloured one, right? But now you’re seeing all different rainbow hues on the shelf, and naturally, it’s got you quite confused. Have no fear, we’re here to help.
When it comes to concealers, it’s all about the colour wheel. Stay with us, here.
Purple is opposite yellow, therefore purple concealer helps cancel out the sallow, yellow tones in your skin. This can be used all over.
Similar to purple and yellow, green is opposite red on the color wheel, and therefore counteracts redness from blemishes, rosacea, and broken blood vessels. Dot this over trouble spots.
Opposite of purple, yellow concealer can help erase shadows. Use this under and around eyes.
The reddish, pinkish, orangey hues in peach concealer work against all the greenish, purplish, and bluish hues in your most troublesome spots. Use this under and around eyes or anywhere else that’s particularly difficult.
And always remember to blend, blend, blend!
