how to use purple concealer

In the past few months, we talked about pink, yellow and orange color corrective concealers. It’s now time to find out what purple concealers do.

As usual, to understand how this color can be used to hide imperfections on your face, we have to refer to the colour wheel.

What Are The Benefits Of Purple Concealer?

Unlike green or pink concealers, purple concealers only have one job – and they do it well.

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.
