FAQs on the Best Concealer Brands Answered
1. How do I know my concealer shade?
Picking the right concealer shade for your skin tone can be a bit tricky. Ideally, your concealer should align with your foundation shade. However, beauty gurus opine that keeping 2 shades of concealer does wonders – one light shade to match your skin tone and a darker shade to hide dark spots and blemishes. If your skin is oily, go for oil free matte formulas. In case you have dry skin, avoid matte formulas and instead go for a hydrating concealer. To hide dark circles, choose a peachier shade, for a deeper skin tone, an orange to red toned concealer works best. Also, make sure to test the concealer in natural lighting, to avoid picking the wrong shade.
2. Which concealer is best for Indian skin?
For Indian skin tone that ranges from wheatish to dusky, a range of concealers are available on the market. With powerful concealing formula, Maybelline Fit Me concealer is the best for Indian Skin – thanks to its oil free formula that stays for long in the hot temperatures.
3. Which colour concealer is best for medium skin tone?
For a medium skin tone, beige coloured concealers would be a great pick. A beige coloured concealer will smoothen the skin tone, even out blemishes and dark spots by giving a natural glow.

Wheatish skin tone is somewhere between fair and dark. It is lighter than dusky complexion, and darker than a fair skin complexion.

A concealer can be lighter or darker depending on your skin tone. Also, if you are looking to even out the skin tone, hide blemishes and dark spots, choose a concealer that matches your foundation.
