Say goodbye to your angry red zit.
Green concealer is a beloved tool in our makeup arsenals because of the way it masks uneven skin tones. Because green is a complementary color to red (see: the color wheel) it’s able to neutralize fiery active pimples, broken capillaries, acne scars, sunburns, and all types of inflammation. Plus, most green concealers go on sheer so you never have to worry about looking like The Wicked Witch of the West.
Aliana Lopez, New York-based celebrity makeup artist who counts the likes of Ella Mai, Eva Chen, and Emily Weiss as clients, advises, “If you need help with covering a super red break out, I would reach for a higher coverage green concealer and spot conceal as needed; first layering the green concealer then topping it with your foundation, any discoloration that still peaks through can easily be covered with your normal concealer. If your needs are for neutralizing a larger area of redness, a primer or tinted green moisturizer may be a better option. The best thing to keep in mind is less is more, so thin layers of the product will result in a more natural, seamless look. I think these products are great green correctors: Dr. Jart’s Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment, YSL’s Nu Tone Corrector, and Lancôme’s Teint Idole Color Corrector.”
Now that we’ve convinced you not to live another moment without one, we’ve rounded up the 31 best green concealers on the market.
