"Say you wake up with a red blemish or suffer from rosacea," said Zdunowski-Roeder. "Applying the green corrector first cancels out the redness and then applying the correct foundation over top will give you a smooth and even appearance."
We'd like to acknowledge that the "medium" skin tone we're talking about here is nowhere close to medium on the actual spectrum of human skin tones. Because we're talking about product, we'll continue to use the standard language, but we realize this is an incomplete idea of skin tone.
Green concealer under foundation cancels out acne, sunburn, rosacea, and visible capillaries.
Yellow concealer lightens darker skin tones and combats purple under-eye circles or bruises.
Peach concealer conceals under-eye circles on olive skin tones, and counterbalances deep blue skin associated with the weariest of under-eye darkness.
Pink concealer brightens the complexion and combats sallow undertones in fair to medium skin tones. Purple does the same.
Blue concealer adds radiance to skin and brightens porcelain and fair skin tones.
Caramel counteracts ashiness on medium and dark skin tones.
Wait, so where is everyone getting purple concealer from?
On the weirder parts of the beauty internet, The Teens advise mixing food coloring into primer or foundation to correct tone. I’ll probably do this because I love ruining my face for a few days at a time at least every week, but it’s a better bet to use products strictly intended for color correcting purpose. Zdunowski-Roeder likes Makeup Forever’s Camouflage Cream Palate for full coverage, NYX Color Correcting Concealer, Bobbi Brown Corrector and Concealer, and believe it or not, Mob Wives’ Drita Davanzo’s Lady Boss PRO Color Corrector Palette.
