Concealer 101: How to use Green Corrector

We all have those days where our basic concealer just doesn’t cut it. Maybe you stayed up late working on a project due the next morning, or your skin is just breaking out more than normal. Days like this calls for a little extra help from your concealer and corrector collection.

If you know a little bit about the color wheel, choosing the right concealer for your skin will be much simpler. Green is directly opposite red on the color wheel, making it the perfect solution to excess redness, pimples, bruises, and more.

Depending on your skin tone, different shades of green are appropriate. If you have lighter skin with blue or pink undertones, a light green or mint green will work best. Those with yellow undertones or medium-dark skin should look for a yellow-green or almost olive color.

You can see the difference here in the BH Cosmetics “Light” Concealer and Corrector Palette versus the “Medium” palette.

How To Apply Green Corrector

Focus on putting just a small layer of green corrector over the red areas, pimples and acne. Then cover it with your regular tan concealer, blending it outwards to create an even skin tone.

If you are using green corrector under your eyes, cover it with your regular concealer and take it down the side of your nose and to the outer corner of your eye to create a “triangle”. Blend, blend, blend!
