What Do Orange Concealers Do?

Orange You Glad? 5 Ways to Use a Carrot-Colored Concealer

Orange might not look good when it's streaked across your skin à la a bad self-tanner incident. But when used for color-correcting the complexion, the warm hue is perfect for balancing out unwanted cool tones in the skin. There's more to this carrot-y shade than that, though; find out more when you keep reading.

  • Under-eye circles: The highly pigmented shade of orange works wonders on concealing under-eye circles on olive skin tones. Orange also helps to counterbalance the deep bluish hues associated with extreme under-eye darkness.
  • Spot on: If it's freckles, age spots, or hyperpigmentation you're looking to mask, try an orange-hued primer or corrector.
  • Ashes away: To combat ashiness in medium to dark skin tones, use a caramel- or peachy-toned primer for an instant lift. If your skin has a golden tone, you can still use these shades of primers, which will provide you with an extra glow.
  • Say no to carrots: An orange corrector doesn't have to be literally bright carrot-orange in order to be effective. Look for mellow tones of the shade in apricot, tangerine, peach, or salmon if orange is simply too overwhelming for your skin tone. You'll be pleasantly surprised how much this warm shade blends right in.
  • Other uses: For help in temporarily fading away blue-green veins and tattoos, mix an orange corrector with a little of your regular concealer.

Try Laura Mercier's Under-Eye Perfecter ($22), Judith August's Cosmetic Solutions Orange Masking Creme ($30), Giorgio Armani's Master Corrector in Orange ($36), or Jane Iredale's Enlighten Concealer ($29).
