Lilac or Champagne: The Best Concealer Type for Your Skin

If you’re reading this article, you are probably already aware of what concealer is, but just in case: Concealer is makeup that is applied over spots and features you wish to cover up, and it goes under your foundation without showing through. Plenty of women use concealer, especially those with age spots, blemishes, or redness. There are a variety of concealers – creams, powders, liquid – and they come in different shades. These shades reflect what each concealer is suited to cover up.

We will compare two of the most effective shades of concealer: lilac and champagne.


Lilac concealer is a very light shade of purple that is suitable as a cover-up for any yellowish discoloration on the skin. Lilac is also a great brightener for a sallow, dull complexion, and it is well suited to cover blemishes as well. If you’ve ever looked at a color wheel, you may have noticed that purple and yellow appear at opposite ends of the spectrum, which is why this shade is so effective in covering up yellow tones.
