Color Correcting Makeup

Want to create a flawless-looking complexion? There may be certain things you’re trying conceal like dark under eyes, an unwanted blemish or discoloration. This is when color-correcting makeup is your new beauty best friend! To master the world of concealing and color correcting, it’s important to learn about the color wheel and which colors can help cancel other ones out. Here are helpful tips to how to target and cover up different problem areas on the face, plus the best makeup to use!

Green-Toned Concealers: Targets Redness
Perfect for those sudden angry zits or areas of redness on the face, green concealers can help to eliminate redness on the skin and create a more even complexion when used underneath foundation.

Orange, Peach or Yellow-Toned Concealers: Targets Blue or Purple Veins
Got noticeable veins in the under-eye area or even on the eyelids? Orange, peach or yellow concealers are great for canceling out obvious veining, as well as covering up bruised spots. And if you have a dark complexion, orange-based concealers can also be used to brightening dark spots.

Pink-Toned (or Peachy-Salmon) Concealers: Targets Dark Under-eye Area
To brighten and cover up those raccoon eyes, salmon or pink-colored concealer, which is a combination of red, orange and yellow tones, can help to combat darkness in the under-eye area and give it a brighter, more radiant look. It can also be used for dull, sallow skin and give it an illuminated base to layer under foundation.

Purple-Toned Concealers: Targets Dull, Yellow Spots or Hyperpigmentation
For certain skin tones, an overly yellow complexion may give off an unwanted dullness. To add brightness and extra glow to the skin, use a purple-based concealer or primer all over, to correct the yellow undertones. You can also spot-correct smaller areas.
