The Best Colour Correcting Concealers For Every Concern

Makeup before and afters – how do they get their skin looking so even and flawless? Well, we are here to tell you that it isn’t just down to a good skincare routine but instead, colour correcting.

Colour correcting has been a concealing technique in the industry for years, helping to correct and conceal specific skin concerns. Available in a range of pastel colours, colour correctors help to neutralise any unwanted tones on the skin and as a result, create the flawless base you desire. Whilst the rainbow of colour may seem daunting, we have broken down how to master colour correcting and the shades you need in your kit to execute any look.

Green Colour Corrector

Working best on fair to mid skin tones, green colour correctors are ideal for neutralising any redness. Whilst it may appear ashy on olive and darker skin tones, it is the perfect shade to calm the intensity of redness that may have been caused by rosacea or pigmentation. Apply it directly on blemishes, rosacea or redness for maximum effect.

Peach/Orange Colour Corrector

Either peach or orange is perfect for cancelling out any grey or blue undertones in the skin. Working best with darker skin tones, it helps to cancel out any discolouration and adds warmth to the area. With discolouration on darker skin tones appearing around the eyes or mouth, blending a peach or orange corrector in these areas will work wonders underneath your foundation.

Often in a salmon or peach-pink tone, pink colour correctors are blended and combined from a mix of red, orange, and yellow hues and as result cancel out any blue, green, or purple tones under the skin. Effectively working on lighter skin tones, pink colour corrector is best for hiding any under eye circles.
