What is color correcting? The same way I had heard about contouring, it had popped up in one of my emails as the new trend in makeup. And I think for most people, it’s a bizarre concept. Put red, orange, yellow & green on your face..? What is the point?
The point is that you want to neutralize other colors in your face. One color will cancel out the other.
Red: covers up dark circles
Green: cancels out redness
Yellow: calms redness
Pink & Purple: cancels dark circles as well as brightens
How To Color Correct: The point is that you can to take these colors, & use them to cancel out the colors on your face. Do you have some patches on your skin that are red? Dab some green concealer. If you have some dark circles under your eyes: dab on some red concealer.
The basic idea is that you want to put on these colors underneath your foundation, wherever you want to balance discoloration. With a palette you could apply the colors with a concealer brush, & then dab your foundation on top. Use a foundation brush / makeup sponge to blend the colors together. Don’t know how to do?
