Different skin tones need different colours from the colour corrector palette. Here is a guide to which colour corrector will work best for you...

Peach for lighter skin tone

This shade is ideal for lighter skin tones, simply use the tip of your finger to dab the product on your dark circles or any other dark spots on your face. The warmth from your finger will help it blend into your skin seamlessly.

Orange for wheatish skin tone and red for dusky skin tone

If you have medium skin opt for an orange colour corrector and for darker skin tones go for a red colour corrector. If you don’t have the red colour, use a red lipstick! Take a tiny swatch on your finger and blend evenly.
