What is purple colour corrector used for?
Just like concealers, colour correctors are used to hide skin imperfections ranging from dark circles and discolouration to dark spots and redness. Each colour corrector is designed to deal with a particular skin problem. If it’s redness or birthmarks that you are trying to conceal then a green colour corrector would be ideal. However, a purple colour corrector can be called an all-rounder, as it is used to brighten dull and sallow skin, even out skin discolouration and hide other minor imperfections. If you do not have any major skin problem, a purple colour corrector is all you need to brighten up your skin tone.
