The Best Bronze Concealers For Black Women

October 26, 2011  |

When choosing a concealer for bronze skin, it’s important to consider what part of the face you are concealing, as well as the formula and the tone of the concealer.

Commonly, women choose a concealer a few shades lighter than their natural skin tone. That is a mistake and will lead to a “reverse raccoon” effect, with an unnatural white half-moon under the eyes. Instead look for a color that is as close a match to your skin coloring on your cheek.

Concealers to try under the eye:

Double-duty Black Opal Fade and Conceal Concealer is a favorite because it covers and lightens. It comes in a tube for quick application and the creamy consistency makes it easy to blend.  For all skin types. Helps treat uneven, discolored skin. $6.75

IMAN Cover Cream has colors and tones that work with all shades of bronze skin. They come in a convenient pot, so application with a brush to cover a blemish is simple. Additionally, popping Iman Cover Cream over dark under eye circles with fingertips is an extremely user-friendly option. It’s long-wearing, natural looking maximum coverage for blemishes, under-eye circles and discoloration. $12.99

Josie Maran Argan Blend Concealer is my go-to “green” concealer. The two shades included in the palette allow each user to customizer their concealer. The hero ingredient is organic argan oil, which heals and hydrates skin. The medium and dark compacts work for all shades of bronze skin. Corrects and conceals flaws and highlights skintone. Conceals dark circles, blemishes, age spots, and redness. $28
