The purpose of using concealer is generally to neutralize dark areas on your face or to hide skin imperfections and/or discoloration. Color theory also teaches us that complementary colors cancel each other out – thus orange/yellow covers blue, violet/red covers green, and green covers red!
Below are a few makeup tips for concealing, which originate from the eighth (8th) edition of our SeneBlends Beauty Guide:
Dark, Under-Eye Circles – Yellow combats blue tones, which include shadows and fine blood vessels near the skin’s surface. You can use any yellow-based MakeSense Foundations, ShadowSense shades, or Light/Medium/Deep Corrective Color Concealer. Go only one-half to one shade lighter than the dark under eye area, because using too light of a shade may produce a raccoon effect.
Dark Spots (Aging Spots) – Use a yellow-based MakeSense Foundation, Light/Medium/Deep Corrective Color Concealer, ShadowSense, or a blend of any these products.
Bruises – A Violet ShadowSense can be used as a concealer to help cover up yellow, brownish bruises, whereas the Green Corrective Concealer will cover up bluish-red bruises.
Acne, Red Blotchiness, or Rosacea – Use Green Corrective Concealer to counteract redness from inflammation, irritation, rosacea, etc. on your skin. If the blemish is raised or has a flaky scale over it, be careful to blend well enough so the green will not be noticeable.
