How To Choose the Perfect Concealer Shade

We have developed six different concealer colors according to the FITZPATRICK phototype scale:

  • Type 1: Very light - pale skin with cool undertones. Does not tan and turns red in the sun.

  • Type 2: Light - pale skin with pink or yellow undertones. Tans gradually, tends to sunburn.

  • Type 3: medium - peau médium with predominantly warm or olive undertones. Tans easily, but sometimes burns.

  • Type 4: dull - dull skin with predominantly bronze undertones. Sunburn occurs occasionally.

  • Type 5: brown - brown skin with warm undertones. Sunburn is rare, the skin turns brown in the sun.

  • Type 6: dark brown - dark skin with predominantly cool undertones. Sunburn is rare and an exception.

The concealer should be a shade close to your natural skin tone.

However, we recommend choosing a shade below your skin tone to brighten the look.

If the shade of concealer is too dark, it will accentuate the appearance of your dark circles. However, if your concealer is a shade too far from your skin tone, it will not provide enough coverage. By the way, if you use our concealer as a cover stick, you should rather choose the shade that is closest to your skin tone.

Tinted Concealer From Typology

At Typology, we have a range of tinted skincare products that include hybrid products, meaning they are in between skincare and makeup. They provide an even complexion and at the same time care for the skin in the long term. In this product line you will find our lip oils, lip balm, tinted serums, but also our tinted concealers.

As already mentioned, our tinted concealer is a mixture of care and makeup. It not only provides high coverage and a healthy complexion, but also contains three active ingredients that permanently soften dark circles:

  • Caffeine

When we drink coffee, our sleep is disturbed, which can be the cause of the appearance or worsening of dark circles. However, studies have shown that the application of caffeine on the skin improves the appearance of dark circles. This paradox can be explained by the fact that caffeine stimulates blood circulation. It also promotes lipolysis, which reduces bags under the eyes.

  • Cornflower hydrolate

Cornflower hydrolate is known for its decongestant properties. This ingredient helps to decongest bags under the eyes. By promoting blood circulation, cornflower hydrolate stimulates the removal of fluids that have accumulated in the extracellular area around the eyes. In this way, it softens tired and puffy eyes. It also reduces the pigmentation of dark circles, making the eyes look more saturated and radiant. Similarly, cornflower hydrosol also has an anti-inflammatory and soothing effect on the thin and delicate skin around the eyes.

  • Niacinamide

Niacinamide, or vitamin B3, helps to reduce the appearance of blue circles by stimulating blood circulation and provides a more even complexion.

When our tinted concealer is used as a concealer, niacinamide helps fight blemishes thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties.

It also helps restore the skin's barrier function and supports the healing process.
