But it is important to know the difference between corrector and concealer before you get on with it.

Although flawless skin is often a full-time job to preserve, cover, and right color make the job a little easier.

That being said, the two types of reporting are distinct and discuss different issues. To help you better understand the distinction between the two, here are the specifics of what you need to know about the concealers and the color correctors.


Concealers are usually used to mask minor breakouts or blemishes, to remove dark circles, and to illuminate areas on the face as you like.

Stop using concealers that have a shimmering finish, as this may tend to make you look greasy.
