Beauty Fact: How To Use Concealer

“Concealer is one of the most essential beauty products out there. It does everything from hiding flaws like blemishes and raccoon eyes, to drawing attention to your eyes and cheekbones (contouring). It also comes in many forms (liquid, powder, stick) and colors! So for today’s blog, I wanted to go over which color of concealer works best for you and your beauty needs. ” -Michelle Phan (Beauty Blogger)

“Yellow concealers are great for evening out skin tone and giving an overall bright, refreshed look. Yellow corrector is great to use as a base for eye shadow or to highlight brow and cheekbones!”

“Green concealers and correctors are great for neutralizing red tones. Green is opposite from red on the color wheel and essentially cancels out any area on your face that is rosier than you’d like (blemishes, rosacea, scars). ”

Pink concealers are the perfect brightening agent and help hide signs of fatigue. Just like green is opposite red on the color wheel, pink is opposite bluish-green hues and therefore hides raccoon eyes and perks up sallow olive looking skin. Dab pink concealer on your under-eyes as well as the inner corners to look well rested and radiant!
