Green concealer may seem like an odd choice but it can actually neutralize the redness of pimples and acne. Complementary colors are colors that fall on opposite sides of the color wheel. When used together, these colors cancel each other out. The color that falls opposite red on the color wheel is green. If you have a reddish colored pimple, green concealer can neutralize the shade and help you successfully cover up the blemish. Correct use of green concealer can leave your skin looking smoother and more even.

Choosing the Right Products

  1. Consider green primer as well. With slight inflammations, such as redness and rosacea, and pimples, primer may be a better choice than concealer. Green primer is lightweight and sheerer than most concealers, so you can use it for all-over redness. It will be less likely to look caked on. However, with very bright, obvious pimples or for spot applications, it's best to go with concealer.
  2. Choose a lightweight concealer. Many people are insecure about their concealer looking caked on. Seek out a lightweight, low oil green concealer to prevent this. You can also moisturize your skin before applying concealer to avoid a sloppy, caked on look.
  3. Use a sponge, small makeup brush, or wand to apply. Get a make-up sponge or brush from your local drug store, or use a wand if the concealer comes with a wand. Concealer looks best when it's gently dabbed on with a sponge rather than spread with your fingers. Not only does concealer look messier when spread on, your fingers may contain bacteria than can worsen symptoms of acne. Only use your fingers when initially dotting the concealer on your face.
  4. Keep in mind green concealer is not the right choice for every skin blemish. Green concealer works primarily because of how green interacts with the color red, but green concealer can also make the skin look dull. If your pimples are not particularly bright red, you may be better off choosing a yellow concealer to cover them.

Concealing a Pimple

  1. Wash and moisturize your face. Before applying concealer, wash and moisturize your face. This can help your make-up look smoother and prevent spreading bacteria that can worsen acne symptoms.
    • Wash your hands first. Lather your hands with soap and wash for about 20 seconds. You can hum the "Happy Birthday" song twice to keep track of time. Then, rinse your hands off with clear running water.
    • If you're worried about acne, try using an antibacterial soap designed to treat symptoms of acne.
    • Follow up your cleanser with a toner to close the pores and get rid of residual oils.
    • Use a moisturizer that works for your skin. Choose one that's oil free to avoid worsening acne, and make sure that you give it time to fully absorb into your skin.
  2. Apply a primer. After you finish your cleansing routine, you may want to apply a primer to your skin to help the makeup stay put and conceal all over redness. Use a sponge or makeup brush to apply the primer to the areas that need it most. You do not have to apply the primer to your entire face. Applying it to your T-zone (nose, forehead, and chin) may be enough.
  3. Apply green concealer. Once you've washed your face, apply the green concealer to the problem areas. Dot the concealer on with your index finger and then gently blot it evenly into your face with a make-up sponge. You can also use green concealer on your under eyes if you have any discoloration there.
  4. Apply foundation and regular concealer on top. Once you've applied your green concealer, apply your regular concealer and foundation. You can apply other make-up as you would normally. Remember, it's best to dot on concealer and then even it out by gently patting it on your skin with a make-up sponge.
  5. Finish with your normal make-up routine. Once you've applied your concealer and foundation, complete your make-up routine as you would normally. Your skin should appear smoother and pimples should be less visible.


  • Try not to apply too much green concealer. A little bit goes a long way.
