How To Use Colour Correcting Concealers

The world of colour correcting is overwhelming to say the least, but do your research and you’ll feel (and see) the benefits – correctors are designed to cover what your regular concealer can’t. Based on the principles of colour theory (throwback to high school art class), pick any colour on the colour wheel and the shade opposite it will cancel it out… So let’s say you have a lot of redness in your skin – since green is opposite red, you’ll want to use a green corrector to cancel it out. Easy.
