The 4 Colored Concealer Shortcuts You Need to Know About
By Alison Abbey, Special Projects Editor |
Whether you’re dealing with sallow skin or an out-of-the-blue blemish, these concealer tricks have you covered.
If you suffer from the occasional blemish or red spot on your face, the key is to go green. Green concealer counteracts the redness. Dab a dot onto the pimple before blending it into your skin. Top it off with a translucent powder and voila! It disappears. You can also use this trick if you suffer from rosacea.

If the skin under your eyes is naturally dark, or you’re suffering from a lack of sleep and the dark circles that result from it, apply yellow concealer. The yellow counteracts the darkness, creating a balanced appearance that hides the circles.

If your skin is looking lackluster and yellow, purple concealer is the way to go. Apply it as a spot treatment to conceal wayward yellow spots, or blend it in throughout your face to combat a sallow appearance and rejuvenate your skin for a more radiant glow.

If you’re using concealer in combination with foundation, select a concealer shade that’s slightly lighter. This will help even out any imperfections in your skin, and give you a more contoured, defined appearance.
