It’s no secret that we couldn’t survive without concealer — the cosmetic weapon that covers a multitude of sins. From a late night out to blemishes and beyond. And while we’ve always touted the benefits of our beloved concealer, we thought it was high time we delve into one of concealers most astonishing talents: color correction. But there’s actually a lot more to concealer then you probably think. I don’t know if you’ve ever looked at a concealer wheel, but there’s a lot gong on, you’ve got pinks and greens and purples. Why are there colours in Color Corrector Palette ? Where on earth are you meant to put them and what do they do, right?
Green Color Corrector
Green corrects extreme redness such as birthmarks, rashes, skin sensitivities, etc. It will also help you if you suffer from rosacea, broken blood vessels, flushed cheeks, acne scars, blotchy areas and redness around the nose.
Yellow Color Corrector
Feeling tired all the time and want to hide the evidence? Yellow concealer could be just the thing you need. A popular choice with the stars, this complexion-brightening corrector adds warmth to your skin and helps you achieve a natural, healthy glow.
Pink Color Corrector
Consider investing in a pink concealer if you’re looking to combat dark circles under your eyes or cancel out dark shadows around your mouth.
Red, Orange & Peach Color Correctors
Wondering what color corrects dark spots? Orange and peach correct blue hues, under eye circles, dark spots caused by aging or sun damage. Orange is great for covering up a blue bruise, while lighter shades of orange, like peach, are better for covering a more mild case of the blues. Lighter skin tones can use peach for covering hyperpigmentation, while deep skin tones benefit from orange and red shades.
Violet, Purple & Blue Color Correctors
Violet and blue neutralizes yellow and orange hues, corrects dark spots and hyperpigmentation and overly orange (think self-tanner) skin. If you have any yellow spots to conceal, choose a purple hue. If you are insecure about yellow tones in your whole face, mix in a little lilac concealer with your primer and apply under your foundation.
