There’s nothing like waking up with a big, red zit in the middle of your face to ruin your entire day. And finding a concealer that matches your skin tone isn’t always the easiest task. That’s why it’s time to turn your attention to color correcting palettes. In fact, there’s a reason why makeup artists and real women alike can’t stop raving about them. If you thought finding the right shade of flesh-colored concealer was hard, it’s time to stop your search, as color correction is all about using pastel purple, greens, peach, and yellow. Say what? Let us explain: Color correcting palettes were created to conceal skin issues such as dark circles, redness, discoloration, and more. Skeptical about applying a purple shade of concealer to your face? You don’t have to be! Follow our guide to help neutralize every skin issue using a color correcting palette.
In order to understand how color correcting works, let’s take a trip down memory lane back to middle school art class. More specifically, think about the color wheel and how it works. Colors that are opposite each other on the wheel cancel each other out. This is the reason why you would apply green concealer to neutralize redness on your skin, and so on and so forth. If you need a refresher or you’re not sure where to start, we’ve got you and your skin covered—literally.
The L’Oréal Paris Infallible Total Cover Color Correcting Kit is a cream palette that comes with four concealer shades: peach, yellow, green, and purple, to help you correct and neutralize skin imperfections. When using the palette, apply your concealer hue of choice sparingly and build coverage by applying it to targeted areas. Follow up with your regular concealer or foundation. Keep reading for specific ways to use different colored concealers!
Use this color from the palette: peach
If you have dark circles, it’s hard not to wish you got that extra couple of hours of sleep last night. Instead of wasting your time worrying about what you could have done, focus on what you can do now. Apply the peach shade from the color correcting kit to help disguise the purples and blues that are under your eyes. Apply the peach cream in an upside-down triangle on your dark circles and blend in.
Use this color from the palette: yellow
Seeing dark spots? Then reach for the yellow color correcting concealer shade on your palette. You can correct and perfect with the help of yellow concealer. Use it on your cheeks, forehead, and chin. You can also apply a couple of dabs over your eyelids.
Use this color from the palette: green
Redness, whether it’s from a pimple or otherwise, can be super-frustrating. You can cancel out redness with the help of a green color correcting concealer. That’s because green is the opposite of red on the color wheel, which means it neutralizes the redness.
Use this color from the palette: purple
If you’re looking for a way to brighten dullness, try the purple color correcting concealer. The purple hue helps to neutralize the yellow tones in your skin and helps to give your skin a more even look. Apply the purple shade to your cheek bones, the top of your brow bone, and down the bridge of your nose. You can even apply some to the inner corner of your eyes, too.
Of course, it’s not only the concealer you choose to use that’s important—it’s about how you put in your face. For a more seamless application, use a makeup sponge, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Concealer Blender. Put some concealer onto the blender and use quick dabbing and rolling motions to the areas of your face you want to cover. Redness, what redness?
