So, what type do you use right now? Mine is the cream type! -- So if you realize, there are many colours for concealer. But do we know what the function of each type of colours?

7 types of color correcting concealers ;

purple_concealer

Purple, lavender, or lilac concealers are best suited for eliminating any unwanted yellow undertones on your skin. People with a pasty, dull, yellow complexion will love how a purple concealer or primer adds a beautiful glow to their face. To remove yellow tones from your entire face, consider a color correcting purple primer. If you’re looking to conceal yellow spots, a spot concealer is best.

yellow_concealer

Yellow concealers are perfect for hiding purple or blue bruises, veins, and under eye circles. Yellow concealers are typically the most general, and great for evening out skin tone to give a bright base for your foundation. Depending on your skin tone, they can also be a perfect as an eye shadow base if you don't have a eye primer handy.


neutral_concealer

If you're one of the lucky ones that doesn't have too many problem areas to hide, this will work fine for you. Any regular concealer should work to veil little imperfections or the occasional pimple. Just choose a shade similar to your skin tone, or one shade lighter, and you’re all set. This is also the best kind of concealer to use as a primer for making your lipstick last all day and night.


green_concealer

The color green neutralizes the color red, which is why green concealers are wonderful for getting rid of any redness on your face. Use a green based spot concealer to remove redness from an annoying zit, or any acne scars. If you have widespread redness, sunburn then a color correcting green primer will be best to significantly reduce redness and give an even toned base for flawless foundation application.


pink_concealer

These are ideal for brightening around the eye area and masking signs of fatigue. That's why this color is best to combat dark under eye circles. Since it's a great brightening agent, these concealers also work well to cover raccoon eyes and to give sallow olive tones skin a much needed radiance.

white_concealer

White concealers can be intimidating if you're not sure how to properly use them. If you’re not careful, you can easily end up looking like "tepung koma'. So, to avoid looking like a sick hospital patient, be sure to use white concealers for highlighting areas on your face. For instance, when you're highlighting and contouring your cheek bones, dab a little on your upper cheek bones, right under your eyes, blending outward towards your ears. You can also use this in the inner and outer corners of your eyes to appear more awake, under your brow bone for a subtle brow highlight and down the middle of your nose.


orange_concealer

For all of you with lighter skin tones, you will want to stay away from orange concealers for the most part. The exception? If you're doing facial contouring and need something that can work as a liquid bronzer. Other than that, this color is perfect for people with darker skin tones looking to hide dark circles or other spots with deep discoloration.
