If you have redness, dark circles under your eyes, blemishes you want to hide, color correctors could help you tremendously! When you think of putting pink, green, and purple products on your face, it can become intimidating fast. I will share how to use color correctors and a few products I recommend!
How Do Color Correctors Work?
The concept is pretty simple, it is based on the classic color wheel you learned as a child. If you take green color corrector and put it on top of your redness on your cheeks, it becomes a complementary color and will neutralize it. So that redness is gone. The same goes for unwanted blemishes we might struggle with. Or, color correctors for dark circles which is probably my biggest problem area.
And if you need to do more than just color correct your problem areas, here’s how you can reset your skin too.
How to Use Color Correctors and Which to Use
Green | Most common, it is used to reduce any redness in your skin.
Red and Orange | Both are great color correctors for dark circles and dark spots on your face and neck.
Pink | Helps brighten up your face if you are pretty pale, and are the color correctors for dark circles minimizing.
Purple | This as well helps brighten up your face, it is best for a more tan/olive skin tone over pale like the pink. Is also used as a color corrector for dark circles under your eyes.
Blue | Brightens your fair skin, and is also good to hide any sunless tanner stains on your face and neck. It will get rid of that dark orange tone.
