In the past few months, we talked about green, pink, yellow and orange color corrective concealers. It’s now time to find out what purple ones do. And as usual, to understand how this color can be used to hide imperfections on our faces, we have to refer to the color wheel. If you’re read the previous posts, you’ll know that to counteract a color you need to use the one opposite it on the color wheel and purple is just opposite yellow.
Purple concealer counteracts and brightens sallow skin
If you have any sallow tones or yellow discoloration in your skin, then purple (in all its range of hues from lilac to mauve) concealers or primers, are your best friends. They help counteract and hide them, evening out the skin tone and giving it a healthy appearance. In addition, if you have olive-toned skin, then purple concealers will brighten up your skintone beautifully and naturally. Just apply a small amount when needed, set with powder and you’re good to go.
Have you ever used purple concealers or primers?
