How to Use Color Correctors Correctly

I don’t know about you, but achieving a smooth canvas with my skin is number one on my list when it comes to makeup. Before I even begin to think about adding any sort of beat, color or dramatic effects, I want to look even-toned. You’ve probably noticed that concealers no longer come in only skin tone shades. Instead, there are many different colors (green, purple, pink, yellow, etc.). Each shade has a specific issue they are best suited to conceal. And if you have several spots on your face that you struggle with, then understanding color correcting concealers can be a total game changer.

Start by selecting your concern. You can choose from:
  • Dark Circles
  • Redness
  • Dark Spots
  • Dullness

Green Concealers: The color green neutralizes the color red, which is why green concealers are wonderful for getting rid of any redness on your face. Use a green based spot concealer to remove redness from an annoying zit, or any acne scars. If you have widespread redness, (rosacea, windburn or sunburn), then a color correcting green primer will be best to significantly reduce redness and give an even toned base for flawless foundation application.

Purple, lavender, or lilac concealers are best suited for eliminating any unwanted yellow undertones on your skin. People with a pasty, dull, yellow complexion will love how a purple concealer or primer adds a beautiful glow to their face. As you probably guessed, purple is directly across from yellow on the color wheel. To remove yellow tones from your entire face, consider a color correcting purple primer. If you’re looking to conceal yellow spots, a spot concealer is best.

Yellow concealers are perfect for hiding purple or blue bruises, veins, and under eye circles, so it’s no surprise yellow is right across from purple on the color wheel. Yellow concealers are typically the most general, and are great for evening out skin tone to give a bright base for your foundation. Depending on your skin tone, they can also be a perfect as an eye shadow base if you don’t have a eye primer handy.

Salmon/Peach Concealers: These are ideal for brightening around the eye area and masking signs of fatigue. This particular concealer color is a mixture of red, orange, and yellow hues, which are across from the blue, purple, and green hues on the color wheel. That’s why this color is best to combat dark under eye circles. Since it’s a great brightening agent, these concealers also work well to cover raccoon eyes and to give sallow olive tones skin a much needed radiance.

Make sure you apply on your problem spot only and not all over your face. Hope this helped.
