Color Correct and Conceal
To hide any pigmentation, even skin tone, redness or acne spots , you must use a color corrector.
Here are some of the options that you can consider:
- Green: redness, active acne and broken capillaries
- Blue/Lavender: sallowness
- Pink/Peach: darkness, dullness and blue veins, particularly in fair skin
- Yellow: dullness, particularly in olive skin tones
- Orange/Red: darkness in the form of dark circles or pigmentation on medium to deep skin tones .
Here is how you should use a color corrector:
Step 1: Dot the color corrector on the desired area with a concealer brush.
Step 2:Blend with a damp beauty blender
Step 3:Apply foundation. While you are applying foundation on the area, make sure you pack it on. Do not spread it to other parts of the face.
Step 4:Apply a concealer on that area.Blend the concealer by gently patting it.Using the pads of your (clean!) fingers, carefully press your concealer, blending it onto each blemish. Don’t rub it, or you could risk streaky results.It can be 1 shade lighter than your foundation.A lighter concealer covers the corrector shade well.
Step 5:Set it with light powder and a setting spray.
Step 6(Optional): If you still need some more coverage, apply compact powder or matte highlighter shade from your contour palette on that area with the help of a powder puff.
