What’s one of the hottest new trends in makeup right now? Color correction! Everyone wants a flawless complexion and now there’s a way to get it and you don’t have to be a professional to achieve it! It just takes a few rules to cancel out your complexion concerns by using complimentary colors through color correction. Here they are:

    • Calm and reduce appearance of Redness caused by rosacea and acne by using a Green neutralizing product if color is strong or Yellow if mild redness.
    • Dark spots from sun damage and hyper pigmentation disappear using Peach, Apricot, or Orange only to areas you need to conceal. This will help with dark circles under eyes too.
    • Bring to life dull, lack luster skin using Purple or Pink to brighten skin.
    • Color correcting products come in many different formulas from sheer tinted primers to thicker camouflage color palettes.

      Just remember:

      • Prep skin first with skincare products and ingredients that work for your concerns.
      • Use a primer.
      • Color correct large areas before foundation, small areas after foundation.
      • Always stipple product on do not rub.
      • Cover with a concealer matching your foundation.
      • Set with powder.

And that’s your crash course in color correcting!
