Colour cor­rect­ing—us­ing op­po­site neu­tral­iz­ing shades to spot-treat skin con­cerns—is the new con­tour­ing, says Gil­bert Soliz, global makeup artist for Marc Jacobs Beauty. While we break the news to the Kar­dashi­ans, here’s your guide to Snapchat-fil­tered skin IRL.

Gren Best for... Pim­ples and post- The Note­book- blub­ber­ing red­ness. How-to To avoid look­ing like Ker­mit, ap­ply this hue near a win­dow—it of­fers the most neu­tral light. “Start with a trans­par­ent ap­pli­ca­tion and build un­til you don’t see the green but you don’t see the red,” says makeup artist David Al­lan Jones. Al­ways fol­low with foun­da­tion. YSL Beauté Touche Éclat Neu­tral­izer in Vert Green ($50)

Laven­der Best for... When you hit the af­ter­party... and you have a pre­sen­ta­tion the fol­low­ing a.m. How-to Ap­ply un­der the eyes, un­der the brow­bone and near the tear ducts. (Vi­o­let can­cels out sal­low­ness.) Pro tip: Use if you’ve over­loaded on self-tan­ner. Smash­box Color Cor­rect­ing Stick in Don’t Be Dull ($26); Marc Jacobs Beauty Cover(t) Stick Colour Cor­rec­tor in Bright Now ($53)

PEACH/yel­low Best for... Begin­ners. Peachy-or­ange hues warm up the com­plex­ion and hide hy­per­pig­men­ta­tion. How-to Us­ing a con­cealer brush, tap on un­til blended. You can also ap­ply it where you would bronzer for a sub­tle strob­ing ef­fect. Sephora Col­lec­tion Bright Fu­ture Color Cor­rec­tors in Yel­low ($18)
