Colour Correcting – A Evenly Finished Face

If you follow me on Instagram then you might know that I recently started a part time ‘Applying Makeup’ course at college.  After the first week of introductions, we began the practical aspect last week.

When it comes to your skin, we all have our areas on our faces that we’d like to perfect – whether it’s redness, dark circles or uneven skin tones.  Luckily we have the wonders of make up to help us out…

Concealer can easily be used as a base to even out your skin – prior to the application of your foundation.  If you’re wondering what colours to use to combat your problem areas, you just need to look at a standard colour wheel to help you out.

By looking at this, you can easily see that the following colour correcting concealers will help with these areas:

  • Green – used to neutralise high colour/redness
  • Lilac – gives a boost to a faded tan or yellow skin tones
  • Peach – conceals blue veins/cold tones
  • And White can be used for a highlighter.

Obviously when applying be careful how much you add – less is definitely more!! You don’t want to end up looking like the Incredible Hulk (although Halloween is coming up!! 😜)

If you’re looking to pick up some colour correcting concealers of your own, you could try this palette by Makeup Revolution.  At just £6, it’s a real bargain and has all your colours in one set.

I’ll keep posting tips as I go, but any questions just comment below and I’ll get back to you!!
