Colour Correcting 101: What It Is and How to Choose the Perfect Colour for Your Skin

Hello, lovelies!

Colour correcting products are useful to conceal redness, dark spots, and dullness. These products are often concealers. Colour correctors come in a range of shades. Each shade fixes a different problem area.

The core colour correctors are:

  • Green
  • Lilac
  • Pink
  • Yellow
  • Orange

Green – The colour green neutralizes redness. Green colour correctors are perfect to diminish any redness in the face. This colour evens the skintone for makeup application. A green-based spot concealer removes redness. If you have widespread redness, a colour correcting green primer will significantly reduce it.

Lilac – Work best to eliminate any unwanted yellowness in the skin. Any yellowness can make the skin appear dull. If your skin has yellow undertones, a lilac concealer will brighten it.

Pink – Pink concealers work best to eliminate dark spots around the eye area. This colour masks signs of fatigue. A pink concealer is a brightening concealer. This makes a pink concealer ideal to give the skin radiance.

Yellow – Yellow concealers are the most general colour. They are ideal for hiding undereye circles or unwanted veins. Because this is a neutral colour, it acts as a base for foundation or eyeshadow primer.

Orange – Orange concealers work best for darker skin tones. The colour reduces dark spots and discolouration. Orange concealer can also work as a liquid bronzer for contouring. This works great on lighter skin tones.
