Featuring six creamy, blendable color-correcting shades, this portable palette allows you to

convenient if you’re someone whose skin tone fluctuates with the seasons).

unwanted shadows. The lavender shade, meanwhile, is ideal for canceling out yellow
undertones and perking up sallow complexions. And if redness is leaving you looking burned
rather than blushed, you can use the green shade to cover up blemishes and conceal pink
Remember that color corrector can be paired with a concealer (in a shade that matches
your skin) for a more seamless finish. After color-correcting, blend it all out, then top with
concealer (you can use the HD Photogenic Concealer Wand for this, too: The emollient-rich
formula is available in 20 shades that flatter a wide range of skin tones and undertones).
Blend well, set it in place with the setting spray of your choice, and put your best face

What Is Color Correction Makeup?
Color-correcting makeup refers to makeup products used to help even the skin tone and
minimize the appearance of discolorations. These color correctors can be used to cancel out
redness, neutralize dark spots and dark circles, and brighten dull or sallow-looking skin.
Because they need to neutralize discolorations, color correctors aren’t skin colored; instead,
they come in a range of shades (like yellow, purple, and green) that help cancel out the
imperfection you’re looking to conceal.
While using a purple-toned cream may seem bizarre for those new to color correcting with
makeup, color-correction is based on the color wheel theory. Colors opposite one another
on the color wheel—think, purple and yellow—cancel one another out. It works the same
way with makeup: Purple cancels out yellow, green neutralizes red, and so on.
What Is The Difference Between Color Corrector and Concealer?
Whereas color-correcting makeup is designed to neutralize and reduce the intensity of skin
discolorations, concealer covers discolorations. As such, concealers come in skin tone
shades and may offer sheer to full coverage, depending on the formula. If your skin
discolorations (think: redness or dark circles) are super obvious, using a color corrector
before applying your concealer can help give your skin a more even appearance.
Can You Color Correct Without Using Concealer?
While color corrector is usually paired with concealer, you can use it without concealer if
you want. To do the latter, we recommend applying your color corrector directly to clean,
primed skin and blending to help sheer it out a bit. Then, you can apply a buildable
foundation on top of your color-correcting makeup to help give your skin an even finish. In
some cases, if you sheer your color corrector out enough, you can use it on its own
(meaning no concealer or foundation necessary).
How Do You Find The Right Color Corrector?
Going back to the aforementioned color wheel: Green color correctors are ideal for
canceling out red and pink tones, like the redness that can accompany blemishes or even
sunburns. Purple color correctors, meanwhile, help neutralize yellow tones; while yellow
and peach color correctors can help counteract the blue and purple hues of dark under-eye
circles. If you’re not sure what hue to reach for, remember that with color-correction, it’s all
about opposites: You want contrasting colors, which balance each other out.
What Color Helps With Dark Circles?
The best color-correcting shade for dark circles depends on your skin tone and the hue of
your dark circles. If your under-eye circles are more blue in tone, use a pink shade; if they’re
purplish, a yellow color corrector can help balance them out. For those with medium skin
tones, peachy shades can help brighten your under-eye area without leaving an obvious
wash of color. Lastly, warmer brownish-orange and deeper peach shades are ideal for color-correcting the under-eye area of those with deeper skin tones.
