b)  Choose the concealer that matches your skin tone:

  • If you have a dark-colored or blackish mole, you can go with a neutral color. For example, if it’s brown, go with a light beige or tan. If it’s black or dark purple, pick a light brown or peach tone.
  • For moles that are flat and have no apparent shape, you can use any color you want as long as the base is neutral (like beige).
  • For moles that are raised above the skin line and are uneven in size, you can use an orange-based concealer to create an orange hue.
  • For moles that are small and appear on your cheekbones but are not raised, you can go with an aqua-based concealer.

If you want more coverage, mix two shades darker than your natural skin color. Blend well so that no part of the mole is showing through.
