Green Concealers: What You Need to Know!
You asked, here it is – Green Concealers: What You Need to Know! I’ve included options for every budget with drugstore, indie, and department store choices. There are even vegan options too.
Now, you may be asking, do I need green concealer? Well, it depends. If you suffer with redness from rosacea like I do, you may want a green concealer in your makeup bag for bad skin days. Alternatively, you may prefer a good full coverage foundation instead. It’s really up to you. I think that green concealers can be very helpful.
Purchased by me.
How to Use Green Concealers
First, don’t make the mistake that I used to make! Don’t use it all over your face. You’ll end up look grey. What you want to do is only use the green color corrector on the areas with the most redness. Less is truly more in this case.
If you’re applying a green color correcting primer, only use the green primer on the areas of your face that have redness. Use your favorite primer everywhere else. This means you’ll end up needing to use less foundation.
If you’re using any other type of green color corrector or green concealer, apply your face primer first. Then spot correct with the green concealer. Use a concealer that matches your skintone on top of the green concealer if you plan on applying a sheer foundation. If you’re going to use a medium to full coverage foundation you can skip that step.
The Best Tools for Green Concealers
There are three options when it comes to applying concealer. For makeup, I find that applying the thinnest layer possible gives me the best results. Using a damp makeup sponge lets me apply my green concealer in a nice thin layer on my face. If you don’t like that, you can use your finger tip to apply and blend it out. I’m also a fan of the Urban Decay Pro Concealer brush for softening the edges of my concealer.
