Colour correcting can be intimidating, covering your face in different colours is always scary! But it doesn’t have to be, with a few easy tips you’ll be able to get the hang of it in no time.
From covering dark under eye circles to bright red acne, colour correcting will do the trick to disguise all your skin pigmentation issues. To become a pro, firstly you will need to know the basics of the colour wheel. The colours which are opposite to one another on the colour wheel, if mixed, cancel each other out creating a grayscale colour.
Blue and Orange
Blue and orange are opposites therefore they cancel each other out therefore, you would use an orange toned colour corrector cancel out your dark blue under eyes.
Purple and Yellow
If the circles are more purple, try to lean towards a more yellow toned corrector for the best result.
Red and Green
Now for acne, blemishes or any redness on the face you will need a green colour corrector to bring down the bright red, once again using the basics of the colour wheel.
