Collection: Concealing Cream

What are concealing cream and color corrector?

What's a color corrector? Color correcting concealers are designed to hide skin imperfections like redness, sallowness and general discoloration. They're particularly good for anyone with dark circles, scars, dark spots, and hyper-pigmentation

For darker skin tones, peach, orange, and red work best because these shades neutralize purple and dark brown discoloration that women of color experience. For black women, correctors help to mask the imperfection and bring healthy color back to the skin.

Green Corrector: 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, (rosacea, windburn or sunburn), then a color correcting green primer will be best to significantly reduce redness and give an even toned base for flawless foundation application.

Purple, lavender, or lilac corrector: 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. As you probably guessed, purple is directly across from yellow on the color wheel. 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 Corrector are perfect for hiding purple or blue bruises, veins, and under eye circles, so it’s no surprise yellow is right across from purple on the color wheel. Yellow concealers are typically the most general, and are 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.

Orange Corrector: 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.

Pink Corrector: Okay, so maybe pink isn’t the best color to describe this group. It’s more like salmon or peach. These are ideal for brightening around the eye area and masking signs of fatigue. This particular concealer color is a mixture of red, orange, and yellow hues, which are across from the blue, purple, and green hues on the color wheel. 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.
