Concealer Shade Guide

HOW TO CANCEL OUT SKIN IMPERFECTIONS

Let's take a look at the color wheel

For example :
Since green is opposite red, so a green concealer cancels out pimples /redness.
Purpluish undereye circles can be cancelled out by a yellowish concealer.
For Bluish undereye circles use an orange/ salmon concealer.
Lavender / Lilac corrects/brightens sallow ( yellow) skin


Other Color Correctors

  • Apricot / Peach - Brightens cooler skin tones
  • Rose - Lifts sallow complexions and gives a glow
  • Blue - Takes down orangey skin tones, also corrects bad self-tan applications!
  • Bronze - Brightens and lifts nearly all skin tones. Gives a healthy sun-kissed look
  • Gold - Accentuates golden skin tones and suntans
  • Silver - Brightens cooler skins. Usually only done in the evening!
  • Yellow - Brightens warmer skin tones, downplay bluish discolorations.
