Discoloration can ruin a clear canvas and the more melanin you have in your skin, the higher your chances of getting darks spots and hyperpigmentation. Problem is, foundation alone isn’t always enough. So for skin that’s rich in color, add concealer. Makeup artist Alana Wright applies foundation first, then dabs concealer on the dark spots. If they still peek through, use a color corrector to neutralize the mark and follow with another dab of concealer. Try a color-correcting primer, like Smashbox Photo Finish Color Correcting Foundation ($38, smashbox.com). The apricot tint helps to counterbalance discoloration.
