The Best Tips and Tricks for Color Correcting Your Makeup

It’s no secret that perfecting the color is key when it comes to makeup. A subtle shift in hue can make all the difference, and if your foundation or blush isn’t quite right, it can be really noticeable. Luckily, you can use a few tips and tricks to correct your makeup’s color flaws. So, keep reading for the best advice on how to get your makeup looking flawless.

Most people are obsessed with finding the perfect shade of foundation and concealer when it comes to makeup. But what about color correcting? Color correcting can be a great way to neutralize any blemishes or discoloration on your face. Here are some tips and tricks for color correcting your makeup.

How do you use color corrector makeup?

There are a few mainstay products that everyone knows and loves when it comes to makeup. Foundation, mascara, blush, and lipstick are all items that many women use daily. But what about color corrector? If you’re not familiar with this product, it’s time to learn more! Color corrector is used to hiding skin discolorations and irregularities, making your skin look more even. Here’s how to use it:

First, find the right color corrector for your skin tone. Different colors are available depending on whether you have redness, dark circles under your eyes, or other blemishes. Choose the color that best matches the area you want to cover up.

Being a makeup artist, I’ll often hear women say they could never wear makeup because they don’t know how to color correct. But color correcting isn’t as hard as it sounds! It’s actually quite easy and super beneficial for everyone. For example, when you’re wearing a full coverage foundation, concealer gets hidden under the product layers, forcing your skin to look cakey and flat (especially under harsh lighting). With that said, I’ve done some research on this topic and put together a list of the best tips and tricks for color correcting your makeup. Those who may not know what color correcting is are using an opposite-colored makeup product on areas of the face where you want to cancel out darkness.

Does the color corrector go on before or after concealer?

There is some debate over applying color corrector: before or after concealer? Some people find that applying a color corrector before concealer helps to brighten and cover dark circles and discoloration. Others find that applying concealer first and then color correcting helps achieve a more natural look. Ultimately, it’s up to you to decide what works best for your skin type and complexion. So, experiment a little and see what gives you the best results.

It really depends on the color you are using and what effect you want to achieve. If you have dark discoloration under your eyes or facial creases, it may help to use a green color corrector first. Green neutralizes red tones. Then apply a flesh tone concealer over the discolored area before applying your regular foundation. If you have sun damage, etc., that tends to be more of a brownish-type spot than reddish in color, try applying your skin tone color corrector over the discolored area before applying concealer and foundation. Your choice may depend on how much coverage you need for these areas – how thoroughly you want to “disappear.”

Way to color correct your makeup for a flawless look

Are you having trouble getting your makeup to look just the way you want it? Whether you’re trying to cover up blemishes or want a more polished appearance, color correcting can help. Using the proper techniques, you can correct any undertones that give your complexion an unwanted hue and achieve a flawless look. Keep reading for tips on color-correcting your makeup like a pro.

So, what are color correctors, and how do they work, you ask? Well, let me tell you! Color correctors are designed to neutralize dark circles or any dark spots/spots on your face without altering your overall makeup look. Generally, most color correctors will come in three different shades – green, pink, and lavender. The green shade is used to eliminate redness, pink will altogether cancel out any blue tones in your skin, while the lavender shade neutralizes yellow tones.

Color correctors are also highly efficient for anyone with dark under-eye circles or pigmentation on their face. Apply the color corrector directly below your eyes just before applying base makeup – I usually set it with a loose powder so that it stays put all day long! I have included some pictures below to help illustrate exactly where you should be applying these little miracle workers.
