Concealers have many purposes: to cover up dark circles, hide acne and blemishes and to brighten the skin. Thicker and more pigmented than foundation, concealer is ideal for blurring imperfections. Concealer can be used on either its own, on top of foundation or under. It works to even out the skin tone and create a smooth surface. Concealers with yellow undertones are used to cover dark circles. Concealers that are blue or green in color counteract redness, such as blemishes or acne. Purple concealer brightens areas as needed. Here are the top 5 concealers:
