Color Correction with Concealer
Remember that color wheel in kindergarten? Remember finger painting and mixing a bunch of colors together expecting something grand, only to discover that disappointing brown?
Understanding how the color wheel works in a fundamental step in makeup application, particularly concealer.
I personally have issues with redness in my nose and cheek area, I'm talking extreme redness, Rudolph style. What color is opposite red on the color wheel? Green. Using a green concealer has made such a difference for me. Without it I'm ready to lead Santa's sleigh.
I use Sonia Kashuk's Hidden Agenda concealer palette, which you can get at target for about $10, check it out here.
This palette comes with three shades of concealer, including the green one that I adore, as well as a setting powder that you apply over the concealers.
Now, onto other color conundrums. Though I don't have a specific concealer for this issue, it is still in fact an issue that a lot of people deal with. Due to the thin skin at the top of nose, near the corners of my eyes, i have those adorable deep blue veins. To counter this issue you're going to want an peach colored concealer or just anything with an orange base really. The same goes for darkness under the eyes.
If you don't know where to start with color correction I recommend a palette with a little bit of everything so you can experiment and learn what your skin needs. Coastal Scents offers affordable color correction palettes, check them out here. < Previous Post Next Post >
