“How To Use It To Your Advantage”
Green concealer makeup can help you cover red skin pigmentation from acne and scarring, but use it the wrong way an you can ruin your entire look. The trick is in knowing exactly how to apply it and then using it only sparingly. Here’s what you need to know.
Green Concealer Makeup
When you’re dealing with redness of any type the first thought that comes to mind is canceling it out with another color – a complimentary color. In theory it works, but there’s a difference between makeup color theory and real life applications. The fact is that it doesn’t always work well. Sometimes, misuse of a makeup product can actually make the problem worse and not knowing how to use green concealer can spell makeup disaster.
You see, certain colors of concealer are often used to create special effects and this color is one of them. It works great for giving bruises a very real appearance and if it’s a ghastly look you’re going for then using it to exaggerate dark circles is perfect. That’s exactly why you might want to approach it with caution for perfect makeup looks.
How To Apply Green Concealer
There’s really only one time when it should be used, if at all, and that is for spot concealing small red imperfections. Then you only want to use a tiny amount and then cover it with another product. The method for this is simple. Just follow these makeup tips:
1. Choose a color that has a little more yellow in it if you have warm skin tones. If you have a cool skin tone, then go with a color with just a slight bit more blue to it.
2. Only use it for spot concealing. Apply it with a pointed brush. If you are applying it over acne scarring then make sure that the area is primed first. If you are covering teen acne then use a medicated barrier between your skin and the product – an acne treatment medication.
3. This is a product that needs to be covered up. The way you do this is by layering on a second natural makeup color that matches your skin tone. You can set it with a sheer powder to make sure it lasts.
Now that you know the right way to use this cosmetics concealer, consider for a moment a much better option – high definition makeup. High definition concealer and foundations contain more pigment in them. Often you will find that one of these professional concealers is enough to cover the problem. Once applied you could even set it with a matte mineral makeup powder.
Green concealer can be a great product if you think of it as temporary corrective makeup. It should only be used when there is no other good alternative and you have already tried professional concealer products. When you reach for it, reach for another layering product to use over it so that you can always get your best makeup look.
