How to Use Color Corrector and Pick The Right One For You

"I love these pimple marks!" said no one ever.

Sometimes we can't help but feel embarrassed over the little things on our faces that hinder us from finally getting that beautiful flawless skin. It could be active acne, leftover pimple marks, uneven skin tone or simple hyperpigmentation. It's annoying and not to mention negatively affects your confidence.

We're lucky that we are living in a time where color correctors exist. If you still aren't familiar with these, then let me introduce you to the magic of color correctors.

Ordinary concealers and foundations sometimes aren't enough so that's when you run to color correcting creams. They are here to help people hide any redness, sallowness and general skin discoloration. The problem now is that there are so many colors and they can be confusing, so we'll be guiding you what each color can do.

1. GREEN

Green is complementary to red so the green color corrector mostly helps in eliminating redness like birthmarks, rashes and other skin issues that result in the skin turning red. That glaring red acne is no match for this one.

2. YELLOW

Yellow helps correct the pink and mild red hues. It is mostly used in the areas near the nose and mouth. Make sure you don't put too much and blend it well to avoid caking.

3. PINK

Oppositely, the pink one is the one you use to correct yellow and green hues. It also helps brighten olive skin and corrects sallowness. It is most effective when used as highlights on your cheekbones and inner corners of the eye.

4. RED, ORANGE and PEACH

The stubborn dark spots on your face are nothing against the power of orange and peach color correctors. Whether it's caused by acne, aging or sun damage, this is your go-to concealer. Orange is also used to correct blue bruise. It is more advisable for people with lighter skin to use peach to cover discoloration and people with deeper skin tones, use the colors orange and red.

5. VIOLET, PURPLE and BLUE

Violet and blue both help in correcting yellow and orange hues, cover dark spots, and even out skin tone. The purple color corrector works best for yellowish spots. If your skin has a yellow undertone, adding a little purple color concealer onto your primer helps neutralize your face.
