#GLBeautySchool: Color theory

 

 Do you remember second grade art class? Probably not, but you most likely remember learning about complementary colors. You know, what looks good with what and why, the color wheel, all that good stuff. As it turns out, that very *elementary* knowledge can be pretty useful when it comes to amping up your beauty game. Read on...
P.S. Remember! You will need a full-coverage foundation over these colorful concealers for best results.  
If you have REDNESS...apply green concealer.
You may look a bit like Elphaba at first, but a thin layer of green concealer cancels out redness from rosacea, acne and other skin conditions.

If you have BLUISH UNDERTONES...apply orange or peach concealer.

Prominent veins can appear bluish under thin, transluscent skin like that found under your eyes or around your temples. An orangish concealer evens out tone and warms the face.

 If you have YELLOWISH UNDERTONES...apply purple concealer.

 

This one might seem craziest of all, but those that suffer from a sallow complexion may find that a purple concealer warms their faces up considerably and helps create a better pallette for different cosmetic looks.
