Hope you all are having a great week thus far. As you can see I’m switching up my posting days. I’m going to try Tuesday (today) and Thursday this week and see how that goes :-). Maybe this can be a reoccurring theme “Tuesday Tips” at the end of this you guys tell me what you think. So lets get into today’s post shall we.
Color correcting techniques have been around for a long time, but what good are the products and techniques if you don’t know how to use them? The three main color correctors are green, peach/orange, and yellow. L.A Girl Cosmetics released these colors not too long ago. If you haven’t checked out their pro hd concealers I would def recommend them. I use them everyday!! They are perfect for concealing, highlighting,contouring and correcting. Look at the array for colors they have…
Green and Yellow correctors are used for concealing redness. That would include pimples, small veins around the eyes or nose, and basically any red spots you may have.
Peach/Orange is used for dark circles under the eyes or any discoloration on the face like sun spots or age spots and even scars.
So first you’re going to use the corrector to fix any blemishes on your face (under your eyes, around your mouth, nose etc.) You can apply it with your ring finger, this will allow for even application of the product and ensure you are being gentle to your skin; or you can use a concealer brush. I like the one by E.L.F which can be purchased at Wal*Mart or Target for $3.00.
Next you’re going want to apply concealer (preferably one that is your skin tone) to cover up what you just corrected. Blending is key is here ladies and gents, I don’t know about you but, green and orange circles under my eyes is not exactly the look I am going for lol. I recommend going in this order before applying your foundation because you want everything to set first and be in place. When you’re done set your face with some loose powder, (I am currently in love with Laura Mercier) and you will be good to go!
As usual I hope you enjoyed my post and these tips were helpful. Let me know if you have tried any other techniques or these products. Until next time…
