Lovely and tan-skinned ladies rejoice! Hide your skin discolorations in under five minutes with the perfect concealer shade for your tan skin tone. While women with fair skin use pink hues to hide their imperfections, you'll need a product that matches the yellow undertones of your skin. To eliminate under-eye circles and redness before a hot date or an evening out with friends, smooth on the best concealer hue for your terrifically tanned skin.
Apply several shades of concealer colors to your jaw line. With mirror in hand, stand in direct, natural sunlight to view the concealer shades. The best concealer hue will contain pigments that lighten dark areas on your skin, while blending in with your natural skin tone easily.
Use a product that complements your skin tone. Concealer shades range from peaches and pinks to lavenders, greens and blue-based formulations. The perfect shade of concealer will have a peach-to-yellow base that will match the warm undertones in your tanned skin. Avoid any concealers with a pink or orange tone that will look unflattering and unnatural on your brown skin.
Apply 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.
Conceal imperfections with the right concealer color and formulation. For dark-colored, under-eye circles, smooth on 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.
