Hello, makeup lovers! In the photo below you can see how my PRO 15 Color Corrector Palette looks! Pretty cool, right? But what to do with it when you don’t know how to use it? A friend of mine asked me yesterday “What should I do with so many colors.. like purple, green?!!” Confusing. But, this got me inspired to write an article about HOW TO USE COLOR CORRECTORS .
To find out how to neutralize a color, check the color wheel. Find the color you want to hide and use the opposite color in place. Color correctors and neutralizers are found in foundations, concealers, makeup bases and sunscreens for the different skin tones and problems.
What colors to use to fix skin discolorations?
– Yellow: Yellow corrects purple areas like bruises.
– Purple/Lavender: Purple neutralizes yellowish complexions and covers sallowness. It evens out overall uneven skin tone, and gives a healthy glow. This color is found in many primers, makeup bases, to prep skin with a even complexion before makeup.
– Orange (or peach): Corrects dark, blue circles. Peach also livens up fair skin tones, and balances out slight discoloration.
– Pink (or salmon): Pink correctors neutralize greenish skin, green facial veins, etc.
– Green: There are many green based foundations and concealers (that require another layer of makeup to cover up the green). The green counters redness like blemishes, zits and flushed skin.
