Top Five Corrective Concealers

BRUISES - ITP, bruising easily, hide a bruise, Bruises, Bruise, itp, low platelet count,

A Corrective Concealer or Colour Corrective Concealer is a make up product designed to change the undertones of your skin colour before you apply make up.  The most famous example of colour corrective concealers in action is this image posted by Kim Kardashian on twitter (@KimKardashian) while getting her make up done.

BRUISES - ITP, bruising easily, hide a bruise, Bruises, Bruise, itp, low platelet count,These concealers are a wonderful way to blend in and hide any bruises you might have.  Just covering a blue or purple bruise with a flesh coloured concealer is not enough.  What you want to do is correct the undertones of your skin before you apply any make up at all.  I was a little skeptical at first but they won me over in the end.

I now use colour corrective concealers under and around my eyes, as they tend to be the first places to darken into bruising when my platelets are low.

    I was using the napoleon one for a while but only ever used the yellow – so just started to buy that on it’s own. The four packs are great to start but you might not use them all. Yellow is the best for the purple ones.
