The pretty green pigment in some color correctors might be eye-catching, but it’s there to do some seriously hard work when it comes to camouflaging redness. Green offsets red, so green concealers help neutralize redness from acne, dark spots, under-eye circles, rosacea and irritation. Whether you battle redness daily or only get the occasional pimple, a green colored concealing product is a must in your makeup bag.
