Have you ever used yellow concealer?
FYI, when I say “yellow”, I mean “yellow”. Not beige-yellow or flesh-coloured-yellow. Lemon yellow.
I know, that’s weird, right? Yet, yellow concealer is a precious ally when you’re not feeling too good. Here’s what it does:
What Are The Benefits Of Yellow Concealer?
Yellow concealers do three important jobs:
1. Yellow Concealer Warms Up The Complexion
We all have days when we feel tired, wan and ghastly and our faces show it. But what can we do to hide signs of fatigue? Apply a swipe of yellow concealer or primer, of course! Yellow adds warmth to the skin and makes it look brighter and overall better. Apply it with a light hand on your skin and no one will notice you’re not feeling your best!
2. Yellow Concealer Reduces Pink And Red Tones
Green is not the only color-corrective concealer that can hide redness. Yellow concealers can do that too. So if you have any red spots like acne, scars, rosacea or just blotchy skin, or any other blemishes that’s pink-toned, but not a green concealer at hand, grab a yellow one to hide them.
3. Yellow Concealer Hides Dark Circles
On the color wheel, yellow is right opposite purple and blue, which means it can neutralize these shades. Yellow concealers work very well at hiding (or at least greatly reduce the appearance of) dark circles, which usually have purple and blue undertones. Be careful not too apply too much though, or they can look cakey.
