With the help of the internet, I was able to understand the use of the color wheel in applying makeup and/or correctors, how colors contrast other colors and how this can be used in applying the right cosmetic shade. This is what makeup artists follow in concealing or hiding blemishes.

I'll be focusing on the orange concealer for now since this blog is really about it. I want to name a few good orange concealers available here in the Philippines and they are...
|NYX Orange Concealer, P350|
|MAC Studio Finish|
Skin Corrector in Pure Orange, P900
Some girls just use a matte orange lipstick to do the concealing job for them.

Anyways, yes, the peachy powder concealer I use from Ellana is successful in covering my dark circles. I know it does it in a very good and natural way. So, here's REVIVE - a peachy color corrector from Ellana. :)
According to Ellana,
Revive is a light peach color corrector for brightening dull skin tones and under eye area.
I use Revive on top of my mineral foundation or setting powder. It gives better results that way. I just make sure I brush on an ample amount of it on my problem areas to avoid making the finish too bright. I usually apply it on my T-zone ('coz there's where the blemishes are).
To add, here's what I read from beautiful with brain's website about how to use orange concealers like Ellana's Revive:
Orange concealers hide dark circles
Dark circles are a very common problem for a lot of women but most of the time, a yellow-toned or even flesh-toned concealers are enough to hide them. However, if you have an olive skintone or just really bad, really dark circles with bluish undertones, then the most effective way of covering them up is by applying an orange concealer.
Orange concealers counteract ashiness
Do you have a medium or dark skintone that looks somewhat ashy? Then, dab some orange-toned (peachy shades work best) on your face to counteract it. Does your skin have golden undertones? Peachy concealers will brighten it up and give it that beautiful, natural glow.
Orange concealers hide spots
Orange concealers are very handy even for those that have spots on their skin. No, I’m not talking about pimples, but age spots, hyperpigmentation and even freckles. One swipe of an orange-toned concealer will be enough to hide, or at least greatly reduce, their appearance.
So, have you tried an orange concealer already? How was it? Share your experiences using the comment box below! :)
