Hello beauty lovers,Happy new week.Its all about colour correcting today..
Recently my face moved from being flawless and spotless to where pimples and sunburn reside. lol.. Like its was so serious that I couldn’t leave the house without foundation and concealer on.. Now I have dark spots, sunburn, discolouration, dark circles around my eyes and so on.. When it all started I just left my face thinking they will go away without any treatment and all,several months passed and it was still the same, no one told me to get my ass up and seek help cause it was getting out of control. It has actually reduced now with the help of some skincare treatment which I will discuss another day not today. But I still have the dark spots and sunburn cause they don’t just disappear, it takes time..
This brings me to how I recently discovered color correction..For a while now have been watching youtube videos and researching on the internet about colour correcting …
First what is Colour Correcting? Its is when two colors that are opposite one another on the color wheel are layered, they neutralize, or cancel one another out with the help of colour correcting concealers. Colour correcting concealers are designed to hide skin imperfections like redness, sallowness,under eye circles and general discolouration. They’re particularly good for anyone with mild to extreme skin discoloration issues. Most slight skin discoloration issues can be managed by your foundation and concealer, but if you want you face to look even and flawless, a colour correcting concealer under your foundation and concealer will do the trick.
The first thing about correcting is knowing the right shades to address the area of concern..concealer comes in different colours like green,pink, yellow, lavender,orange etc. Each shade has a specific issue they are best suited to conceal…
Green: This is great for cancealing out really red areas, like when you have a pimple,broken blood vessels, and even for people who get red rings around the eyes..
Pink: This can even out fair skin that’s ruddy, and will cancel out purple under eye circles on fair skin..
Yellow: This works on olive or tan skin and cancels out those purple and blue under eye circles and dark patches..
Orange: Under eye circles, dark spots caused by aging or sun damage, and brightens deeper skin tones.Orange is great for covering up blue bruises, lighter shades of orange, like peach, are better for covering a more mild case of the blues…
Next is finding the right formulation. When picking a corrector, colour alone is not enough. The depth of the chosen shade is also key. And always use sheer concealer when you’re layering over a corrector because you don’t want the end product to look too thick, especially around your eyes… So far I only own two colour correctors.
Mac Conceal and Correct Palette medium deep. I tried using the yellow once and it just made the dark circles more obvious. So orange is best for dark skin.. This one is really nice and covers the dark area effectively.
Mac Prep+Prime in Peach lustre – Just started using this mac prep and prime and so far not bad.. For now can’t say which is best cause i still want to try out different brands to see which works best for me.
lastly the reason this is a topic is because most people don’t know about colour correcting. Just very few makeup artist know about it and use it.. If your like me that love to experiment, then this is something you should try.. Have a nice day beauty lover,by GODS grace we shall achieve all we set out for this week and more.AMEN..Don’t forget to leave you comment below..xoxo..
