Choosing the right colour corrector can literally transform your look and makeup routine from one stress and stolen time to one so simple and smooth you will be kicking yourself for not checking this sooner. Check out the key colour correctors that address those pesky concerns – there’s no need for a fairy godmother when you have these products in your makeup bag!
1.The Dreaded Blemish
Why does it seem like blemishes wait until you have some awesome event lined up, choosing then to terrorise your skin? Don’t allow blemishes to overthrow your world. A green colour corrector will effectively neutralise the discolouration and redness of blemishes. When choosing a green corrector, remember to pick a shade that suits your skin tone. I love Nyx Cosmetics Concealer Jar (£6) Once you have applied the corrector, cover with your chosen concealer.
2.Good Riddance Dark Circles
This time of year, in particular, the appearance of dark circles is as often as spam PPI phone calls (well, almost). Peeps, it’s time to phase them out for good. Once your usual skincare products (i.e. cleanser, toner, moisturiser and brightening eye cream) is on, apply the colour corrector that suits your skin tone: For fair skin choose pink. (I love Sephora’s Bright Future Color Corrector, $14).
For light to medium skin, choose peach.
For darker skin tones, choose yellow.
For deep skin tones, choose red.
3.Brighten Up With Purple
This shade will cancel out any yellow undertones and is a genius product for adding instantaneous luminosity to otherwise dull-looking skin. I love NIP+FAB Colour Corrector in Lavender (£8.91, Superdrug).
4.Hyper-Pigmentation – What’s That?
Do not let this little horror dictate your life. There are so many fabulous products that can swiftly correct any last trace of hyper-pigmentation and dark spots in seconds. Opt for an orange shade to neutralise brown spots. My hero product is Laura Mercier’s Secret Camouflage, $35. #beautifulskin
