Concealer 101: Part 1

Have you ever wondered how you hide red blemishes, cover up dark circles, or neutralise your skin tone? Well today, I’m going to tell you how.

But first, there’s more to concealer than meets the eye (..or face).

Firstly, there are 5+ different colours of concealer. Each colour has a different purpose;
Peach – peach neutralises dark spots on the face, and is amazing for hyper-pigmentation
Lilac – lilac/purple illiminates any yellowness and dullness from your skin
Yellow – yellow hides purple and blue patches (great for blue under-eye circles)
Green – green hides redness, amazing for around the nose, eyes or blemishes

To understand colour concealers, let’s take a look at the colour wheel:

Every colour directly across from each other cancels it out. For example green would cancel out violet (or lilac).

Here are some things to keep in mind when using colour correcting concealers;
• Be careful not to mix the different colours together, otherwise you could end up with an issue of not covering anything up!
• Remember to cover the colour corrector with your regular concealer (one which matches your overall skin tone and foundation) otherwise you could have green or lilac splodges on your face!

That’s all for today, stay tuned for my next Concealer 101 post where I’ll be discussing regular concealers, how to highlight with them and my struggle trying to find my holy grail

Until next time,
