Concealer Basics: Color Correct Like A Boss

Bye-bye dark spots and dark under-eye circles.

When talking concealers back in the day, girls used to have only three options to choose from, light, medium, or dark. Now the concealer color wheel has expanded and out comes beautiful shades of pinks, purples, greens, and so much more! While these color concealers are fun to look at, using them can be crazy hard if you're clueless about its functions. But don't be intimidated by these colorful pots because color correcting can be your one-way ticket to creating a flawless beauty look. So scroll down below as we break down the different color concealers, and how you can take advantage of these correcting rainbows.

Greens 

Green concealers are best known to cancel any redness on your face. If you have a pesky zit growing that causes an area on your face to go red, simply use a green concealer to neutralize and control the redness around the area.

Purple

Since purple is the opposite of yellow, purple concealers can temporarily eliminate any yellow tones in a snap. If you're trying to hide spots, and acne scars just dab a few purple concealer on it before topping it off with your regular concealer and you're good to go.

Orange

If you have a darker skin tone, and want to conceal dark circles under your eyes opt for a heavy-duty orange concealer to do the trick. If you want to mask any deeper skin discoloration then orange is your best bet, too.

White 

White concealers can be a little bit scary. They're tricky to play with but it's the best shade to highlight features like your brow bone, your nose bridge, and your cheekbones.

Cold Food

The most thrilling and delightful moment of any school day is opening up your baon during breaks. There is always so much excitement in unveiling your homemade meal and snacks housed inside matching heat-insulating containers. Because preparing packed meals is an age-old tradition of showing parental love, loved ones pour effort into curating a nutritious meal accompanied by a selection of side dishes, desserts, and beverages daily; it reminds us that we are being taken care of, even from far away.

Baon plays a significant role in a Filipino childhood. Almost every Filipino child comes to school with baon made especially for them by their parents or household helpers. Even Filipinos in the labor force continue to bring baon for varying reasons: to save money, recycle leftovers, cater to personal taste, or attend to special needs. Nonetheless, eating your baon is a heart-warming experience that allows Filipinos to bring a piece of home along with them wherever they go.

Even other cultures practice making packed lunch. In Japan, mothers create bento--Japanese meals in partitioned boxes. Because of the popularity of bento, trends have emerged, such as the Kyaraben, or character-themed bento. Naturally, Japanese parents and students began competing for who had the cutest and tastiest bento, and this is similar to what I have witnessed in my own childhood. I remember seeing my classmates sharing their snacks and lunches. They would compare and boast about their parents' or yayas’ cooking. In my case, I never had the chance to join in the competition or indulge in homemade cooking. Up until this day, I have never brought any baon to school.

For a long time, I envied others. As trivial or petty as it may seem, not having baon became a problem for my grade school self. During that time, I had to sit in a separate cafeteria away from my friends because the kids who bought food were assigned to sit elsewhere. You could consider me spoiled, but I wanted to experience something most kids did. I had food at home, so what made it so hard to bring some with me to school?

Now that I am on my final year in high school I have come to realize the benefits of purchasing my own food. Since I spent on food everyday, I learned to budget my allowance at a young age. Over the years, I learned to practice self-control whenever I wanted to eat more greasy fries and drink sweetened beverages. I have tasted the strangest viands at the school cafeterias, and I have repeatedly satiated myself over my latest delicious discoveries. Despite the struggles, I am thankful that I have never had baon because of what I have learned. Not to mention, I never had to experience eating cold food.
