    Actually, as a former art student I can guarantee that green will make red pop out more. They are contradictory colours (red - green, blue - orange, yellow - purple) so putting them with each other makes the other seem more vibrant. That's why you'll always see green vegetables in red containers, and vice versa.

      You mean complimentary colors, right? Your art school was a waste of money if they taught you that contradictory colors was a real term

      *Complimentary. But thank you for putting that out there. I went to an art school too!

    Those colors should pair up nicely to make you look like a hungover or very angry tropical fish.

    Putting green next to red will make it stand out more. Putting green over red will help cover it up because they cancel eachother out if you will.

    I would think it would make them stand out more since it's a cool vs. a warm tone but I guess if it works it works. XD

    This was probably written by a "frenemy". She's (he's?) just trying to fool the recipient of this text.

    But with red faces, like acne or rosacia you use a pale green cover up over it to calm down that hue

    I agree it should work in the opposite way.. that's how you're supposed to pick a color that enhances your eye color, not hide it. nice idea though!

    Damn, is sarcasm foreign to all of yall? Jesus, op obviously was trying to trick the recipient, or was just a dumb-ass. Seriously, most people are smart enough to realize that it is the opposite.

    To all the people talking about those green concealers: if you blend the two colors, they'll make mud brown, but on skin the redness goes away. With green eyeliner, you obviously can't MIX the colors for them to cancel out, you leave them next to each other to stand out. Common sense.

    Actually green does lessen the appearance of the red...that's why if you have red patches on your face from pimples, you put Green cover up to hide the redness.

    Good example of stoner logic: if it makes sense to you it's gotta be true. Being from nc tho I have no clue why you'd need to know this (assuming it DID work) in the mountains. Everyone smokes there

    So if green makes red more vibrant, why is there such a thing as green-tinged concealer for people with reddish skin..?
