Crushing over new shades of lipsticks and eye shadow palettes is every makeup lover’s favourite pastime activity. However, things get complicated when your concealer also comes in different shades and you don’t know what to do with them. Unlike lipstick shades you can’t pick the prettiest colour corrector to get the work done. Each colour is designed to conceal a specific skin issue, sounds complicated? It is not, read on as we simplify it for you...
If you have acne, eczema, skin irritation or sunburn use a green colour corrector to neutralize the redness on your face. It also camouflages blemishes and works on all skin tones. Apply a thin layer of the green concealer before applying your foundation to get a flawless look.
It is the boldest shade of colour corrector and makeup newbies might be a little reluctant to use it. But orange works best to hide the darkest under eye circles and are also used to cover tattoos, dark spots and bruises effectively. Start by applying the orange colour corrector and follow it up with your regular concealer to get an even tone.
If you complain of dull, sallow or yellow-looking skin, a purple colour corrector might just become your new best friend. This shade works on all skin tones to make them appear brighter and happy within minutes.
A yellow colour corrector is the most versatile of the lot. It targets purple and brown skin issues such as hyperpigmentation, dark spots, bruising and redness. Yellow also works wonders if you want to brighten your skin tone.
