Whether you consider yourself a color-correcting pro or are still in need of a little practice, the world of colorful concealers can be a bit tricky. Thankfully, you've got us here to break it down for you! We already showed you how to find the perfect color-correcting shade for your specific concealer concern. But now, we're helping you locate the product perfect for your skin type. From oily to dry, acne-prone to aging, here are the color correctors you should be using.

Oily skin: Besame Cosmetics Brightening Face Powder Vanilla Rose$22 at Sephora

If you suffer from oily skin, chances are you're reluctant to pile on more product. But, with Besame's color-correcting setting face powder, you can conceal sans the shine! This powder comes in four matte-finish shades and one natural-finish purple hue, so everyone can find what they're looking for.

Acne-prone skin: Dior Fix It 2-In-1 Prime & Colour Correct$36 at Sephora

If you're like us, whenever you run across a blemish or an unexpected (and certainly unwanted) pimple, a spot treatment is a necessity. Blemish sufferers should reach for Dior's handy 2-In-1 Prime and Colour Correct stick. With four different colors to choose from (green is a great option for balancing out the redness of a pimple), this product allows you to easily hide a sudden breakout.

Dry skin: Yves Saint Laurent Forever Light Creator CC Primer$45 at Sephora

Those with drier skin should embrace a creamier formula that's rich and hydrating. This cc primer from YSL comes in two shades and works to neutralize uneven skin tones, balance skin irregularities, and diffuse light to improving the skin's texture. Plus with an added SPF 35, this is suitable for everyday use. 

Aging skin: stila Correct and Perfect Palette$45 at Sephora

Complete with—count 'em—five color correctors and two tinted setting powders, this palette is ideal for anyone looking to target a variety of concerns. We're liking this one because it boasts ingredients such as vitamins A, C, and E and the signature Arclay Youth Revival Bio-Available Mineral Complex to help smooth away pores and fine lines and control oil production.
