One of the most common colours correcting concealers across all skin tones and different undertones! An orange corrector is mostly used to conceal darkness, pigmentation, dark circles, dark patches etc. It is an excellent corrector for all skin tones but you should choose the shade well based on your skin tone or under tone. A girl with dark skin tone can opt for an orange shade while those with lighter skin tones must stick to light peach-orange correctors.

I don’t know how many of you have heard about white concealers but white concealers are extremely important. They double up as a highlighter too. They are mostly used to cover odd blemishes and dark circles and even age spots on your skin. You can also use these to customise the shades of other products to make them work for your skin tone. Accidentally bought a dark orange color corrector? Just add a hint of white corrector to make a custom shade for your skin.

Purple is one of the most unusual colours among color correctors. A purple concealer is very useful as it is used to brighten up dull skin. Even though it does not really hide blemishes, it helps you achieve a flawless, bright skin tone that looks healthy and radiant. It also helps you treat yellowness of your complexion and evens out skin tone too.
Green stands opposite to red in the colour wheel and thus you can use a green concealer to treat any red areas of your face. A green concealer is extremely effective to treat any irritated skin or red bumps on your face. But you need to be cautious with the intensity of green colour. Use one of the lightest shades of green or if you have a dark green shade then neutralize it with a white concealer. Also, green concealer like LA Girl Pro Conceal HD Green Corrector or YSL Touche Eclat Neutralizer Vert Green must be patted well into the skin.
Yellow concealer is one of the best concealers for your dark circles. Yellow concealers are mostly complexion brightening concealers. These are also used to add a warm touch to your skin. Also, yellow concealers are the best for Indian skin tones.
