How to Choose Concealer for Your Tan Skin: 4 Steps to a Flawless Face

How to Choose Concealer for Your Tan Skin: 4 Steps to a Flawless Face

It’s true:

The best concealers, blend right into the skin, cover your flaws and don’t slide off your face in a heat wave.

While women with fair skin use pink hues to hide their skin imperfections, you’ll need a product that matches the yellow undertones of your golden olive, beautiful brown or tanned skin perfectly.

To eliminate under eye circles and redness before a hot date or an evening out with friends, you too can choose concealer for your tan skin like a pro.

Here’s how:

Things You’ll Need:

  • Translucent Powder
  • Concealer
  • Handheld mirror

1Apply several shades of concealer colors to your jawline.

With a mirror in hand, stand in direct natural sunlight to view the concealer shades. Should your concealer be lighter or darker than your skin?

The perfect shade of concealer will match your tan skin tone perfectly and disappear into the skin effortlessly.

2Use a product that complements your skin tone.

Concealer shades range from peaches and pinks to lavenders, greens, and blue-based formulations. Hide your skin imperfections with a yellow-hued concealer that complements your natural skin hue perfectly.

3Apply a concealer for your particular skin type.

Concealer formulas come in three textures: light creams, drier and matte sticks and potted and opaque versions.

What are the best formulas for your tan skin?

Smooth on cream concealers for dry skin; matte and oil-free sticks for oily skin and potted concealer if you have normal skin.

4Conceal imperfections with the right concealer color and formulation.

For dark-colored, under-eye circles, smooth on a liquid concealer that is no more than one shade lighter than your skin color.

Cover blemishes on your chin and cheeks with a heavy stick or cream formulation that is the same color as your foundation.

To make your concealer last from morning to evening, set the product with a quick dusting of translucent face powder.

  1. I bought a concealer medium too light for my olive tanned skin!Is that the correct one?

  2. Thanks, Lara for commenting. Without knowing the name of the concealer, because product shades vary whether its Mac or Maybelline, I can’t tell if it’s the right color for your skin tone. Let me know the name of the concealer and its number, and I’ll do some research to see if it matches olive or tanned skin best!
