A good concealer is hard to find. Especially if you are a brown girl. And you can compound the issue of finding a great concealer for brown skin if you are looking for an organic concealer. Once upon a time, organic makeup was like the evil stepsister of makeup—good for you, but not good on you. Fortunately, now, many brands are conscientious about the ingredients in the products as well as the wearability of their formulas as well.
Additionally, attention to darker skin tones is not longer a stumbling block to makeup brands. One in particular, Josie Maran, has products that work for brown skin. Recently I tried Josie Maran Argan Blend Concealer in Chestnut on my daughter, who has deep brown skin.

I have used Josie Maran Argan Blend Concealer in Chestnut on Chelsea twice, both times with great results. Once for this review, and also for eHow, answering the question “What is a great natural concealer for darker skin?” Why is it great for deep brown skin tones? Let me count the ways…
1. Two colors in the compact allow you to correct discoloration and then conceal. This is a makeup artist must-have and wonderful for the everyday consumer.
2. The formula for pigment potent and creamy. A little goes a long way.
3. Josie Maran Argan Blend Concealer lasts for hours without running or needing touchup.
5. There is PLENTY of product in the container, so you get a great bang for your buck.
Pro: Organic, creamy, covers, customization, anti-aging
Con: I would prefer more of the concealer color as opposed to equal parts of concealer and corrector
