Share Tweet Pin

We all have those days where we don’t get enough sleep, or better yet, date nights when a blemish pops up out of nowhere. Enter color correctors. These holy grail products have the power to neutralize and cancel out all of your skin complexion concerns. We admit, with hues of green, to yellow, purple and red, it is easy to be intimidated by this product..but don’t worry! We have the breakdown below on how to achieve flawless looking skin using color correctors!

 

WHY EVERYONE'S PUTTING CRAZY REDS, GREENS, AND PURPLES ON THEIR FACE...

It’s easy to be intimidated by makeup that isn't exactly your skin color..we’re talking purples, deep reds, and greens! Think back to your elementary school art class color wheel. If you have redness around your nose, you can grab a green color corrector to cancel that out! Have dark bags under your eyes? Deep oranges and reds can brighten those bad boys up in a second. We promise once you start using a color corrector you will not go back!

 

ON FINDING THE RIGHT COLOR FOR YOU...

Greens: Cover any redness you might see

Orangey Reds: Cover bluish and dark spots to illuminates the area (Think under eye circles)

Yellows: Cover any purple or darkish colors, for example, a bruise or a bump

Pale Pinks and Purples: Brighten and lighten your skin giving it a healthy glow

You can either go for a color corrector in a specific shade or buy a multi-coverage product that combines all of the shades!
