The pretty green pigment in some concealers might be eye-catching, but it’s there to do some seriously hard work when it comes to camouflaging redness. When it comes to concealer, this is a shade you want to tackle any redness in the skin. As far as the color wheel goes, green offsets red, so green concealers help neutralize redness in the skin from acne, dark spots, under-eye circles, rosacea and irritation. Whether you battle redness daily or only get the occasional acne, a green concealer is a must in your makeup bag. We rounded up some of our favorite formulas, from drugstore products under $5 to designer skin products.
