Color correcting is so easy to do on yourself once you understand it…and it is so worth learning!
Counteracts redness in the skin. The perfect color corrector for people with rosacea or a lot of general redness in their skin. Also works on any areas of localize redness such as acne.
Counteracts sallow/yellowed skin. The perfect color corrector for people who have a bit too much yellow in their skin. Lilac will brighten up skin!
Counteracts lilac or purple to blue undertones (you see how this is working ). Perfect for people who have purple undertones that are often found under the eyes. Yellow will also brighten up skin!
Counteracts dark discolorations Perfect for people who have more visible darkness under the eyes. Also great to conceal bruising and freckles or hyperpigmentation. Can give the skin an overall glow. Eve Pearl’s “Salmon Concealer” has some apricot in it and works wonders to brighten!
Counteracts blueish tones and brightens. Perfect for people who have visible veins on the skin or underneath the eyes. This also brightens up the skin. Be careful though as pink and blue make purple…so you want to look for a pink that is closer to the apricot side than the purple/blue side.
This post was inspired by my mom when we went searching for a new color corrector for her this weekend. We settled on this one by Dermablend because it was SUPER pigmented and you could really see a dramatic difference in her redness:
I loooove Dermablend’s products because most of them are sooo pigmented…they are great for tattoo cover! I have a lot of yellow in my skin but not a lot of red so I dusted some bright red blush on my arm so you could see how well this color corrector works. The image on the left is my blush filled arm…the two images on the right are after I applied Dermablend’s corrector to the part of my arm closest to my wrist. Look at the difference:
Crazy good right???
There are so many color correcting primers out there in every price range from Smashbox, L’oreal, Stila and sooo many more that you are sure to find one to suit your budget. This one by TEMPTU is next on my list to purchase!!!
