Best Concealer Hacks For Dusky Olive Skin Tones

Our skin tones determines a lot of the makeup application tricks we use! For fair skin tones minor blemishes or acne marks are the objects of concern which look weird on the face and need to be concealed effectively for a flawless face!

Usually those who are born with clear and milky white skin tone are mostly concerned with the problems or acne marks which are usually left behind as an acne dries up and it appears more evident just because of the skin tone which is so light that practically any imperfections looks telescopic to the eye!

I always had only one concern about my face and that was the breakout marks which I had to conceal while my cousin was more of the wheatish skin tone and her face looked flawless no matter she had acne or not. And I literally used to make wishes like God make me dusky please! I too want to not use anything on my face and look flawless.

Over a few years my cousin’s wheatish skin tone changed drastically and her cheekbones started looking more dark and patchy as if sun damage darkened that area of her face! During a wedding occasion, when she used a matching base on her face, the uneven skin tone was obviously seen in the pictures because of some major ignorance of concealers like color corrector! While it is comparatively easier to use concealers of fair skin tones, doing the same on olive dusky skin tones may not necessarily give the same result!
