Are you using concealer properly?
Since colour correctors come in all kinds of varieties (liquids, powders, creams) and in countless shades (pastel yellows, chiffon, brick reds, peach, lavenders, blues, and greens) mastering the technique can seem daunting at first. But what exactly is it and why is it useful for you to learn how to properly pick up the skill?
“Colour correcting means canceling a darker skin tone pigment like dark circles, sun spots, acne scars by using a coloured concealer,” explains Sebastien Tardiff, co-founder and CEO of Veil Cosmetics. “As a general rule, a golden or yellow corrector is best for canceling out sallow, olive, and brown undertones, while a pink or peachy corrector works great for canceling out any signs of blue, purple, and red marks.”
Your colour correcting beauty routine will be exclusively unique to your own skin’s needs, so don’t compare your routine with your friend’s.
