The Right Concealers for Color Correction

Have you layered on your foundation, but found your dark circles still seem to show? Does it feel like redness is a problem you can’t fix? By using certain products, it is possible to correct these blemishes! To use color correcting concealer correctly (say that 5 times fast), apply the products on a primed face before applying foundation. A color correcting primer is applied before any concealer or foundation. Use either a clean finger or a beauty blender to blend the makeup into place.  A lot of these top-rated products can be found at Sephora or online by the brands website!


Redness: Go Green! The color green tends to correct facial redness!  This only makes sense because green is the opposite of red on the color wheel! some of the top-rated products for redness include Smashbox Photo Finish Color Correcting Foundation Primer, Bare Minerals Redness Remedy, Clinique Redness Solutions and Makeup SPF 15 with Probiotic Technology.


Dark Circles: Try Yellow for Blue-Tinted Dark Circles, Orange for Green-Tinted Dark Circles! Just the same as red cancels green, these colors also cancel each other!  So if your dark circles lean to be more blue, opt for a yellow based concealer, and if they are more green, try an orange based concealer. Some of the top-rated products for dark circles include Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, Lancome Maquicomplet Complete Coverage Concealer, and Bobbi Brown Under Eye Corrector.


Yellow Tones: Lavender Concealer! For some people, their skin tends to have a yellow undertone.  To brighten and even your skin, try a lavender concealer! Some of the top-rated products for yellow tones include Urban Decay Naked Skin Color Corrector Fluid Lavender and Lancôme Miracle CC Cushion Color-Correcting Primer Lavender.
