What is orange concealer used for?

Orange concealer is a great addition to the complexion routine of anyone who wishes to conceal discolouration such as under eye circles, dark spots caused by aging, sun-damage, bruising or hyperpigmentation. Orange-toned concealers help to neutralise the contrasting blue tones found in much discolouration and also ink pigments, which makes it great for covering tattoos also. Orange concealer comes in many formulas including cream and liquid and is placed upon areas of discoloration as a first layer to neutralise before the application of other complexion products such as foundation or skin tone matching concealer.

The cream formulas can tend to give a slightly fuller coverage than a liquid so if you have quite deep pigmentation then ‘Pure Orange’ from the Dark Studio Fix Conceal and Correct palette is the perfect orange concealer for addressing darkened discolouration and hyperpigmentation on medium deep to dark skin tones. If you're more of a light to medium skin tone then the 'Mid Peach' tone from the Medium Studio Fix Conceal and Correct palette will be perfect for you. These concealer palettes are extremely multi purpose and a great addition to any makeup bag! They are a professional palette of four concealers and two corrector shades in a range of colour waves. Enriched with antioxidants and suited for all skin types, they can be used individually or combined to match any skin tone. They can help to correct skin tone, conceal dark circles, blemishes, moles, tattoos and birthmarks.

For a liquid and slightly more lightweight colour corrector you can try the MAC Prep + Prime Highlighters which have a creamy blendable formula and a brush-tip applicator for easy application. The shade ‘Peach Lustre’ doubles up as an excellent peachy-orange concealer for medium to medium-deep skin tones. For fair to light skin tones who wish to conceal blue-ish purple tones, Prep + Prime Highlighter in shade ‘Bright Forecast’ is sure to do the trick.
