A concealer or colour corrector is a type of makeup used to mask dark circles and other small blemishes visible on the skin. Concealers usually do a good job of hiding blemishes by blending the imperfection into the surrounding skin tone. This product is mainly used by women, but use among men is increasing.
Ok so here is what I think: Concealer is for blemishes and spots and pigmentation. Depending on the consistency I find it good as a lid primer! It’s generally not a good under eye corrector, an illuminator does this better xxx

hat wiki says:
BB cream stands for blemish balm, blemish base, beauty balm or beblesh balm (apparently because of a trademark in Korea on the word “blemish”), and in Western markets, beauty balm. It is a cosmetic item sold mainly in East and Southeast Asia, although larger beauty brands are increasingly introducing BB creams to Western markets.
BB cream is promoted as an all-in-one facial cosmetic product to replace serum, moisturizer, primer, foundation, and sunblock. It can be worn alone as a tinted moisturizer, over serum and moisturizer as a regular foundation, and under powder, depending on the desired amount of coverage.
Now here you go: What Glamity says:
BB creams are a great day off product. They are ideal for all skin types but are not a replacement for everything. They have good benefits but should not replace a good skincare. Treat them as a light foundation, a primer, an SPF but don’t stop using your regular serum or moisturiser. They have a gel cream texture that is not hydrating to all skin types.
They are a great product but take you face seriously. Use proper skincare alongside the BB.
Coverage…… there are essentially three types of coverage when you are talking foundation- Light Medium and Full. Within this then there is a thing called buildable coverage . Then you have the finish of the coverage…. which include buzzwords like Matte, Radiant, Lustrous, Highly lustrous, dewy etc.
So when you ask or are asked “what is the coverage like?” or “what type of coverage can I expect?” it applies to how much of your own skin do you want to see through the product.
In laymans terms do you like the natural or full on look. It also depends on your skin type and tone.
For daytime a light to medium coverage is plenty and for night time medium to full.
If you suffer with high colouring or pores there are different products to tackle these issues. Coverage in general is not the answer.
Illuminator- These babies are a Mom’s best friend and a party animals best party piece! Basically they look a bit scary but they are brilll. The most famous of all is Touche Eclat by YSL which I love but it can be a bit pink. My fave product is Ideal light by Estee Lauder.
