Hair - - Make-up Hack -

The last time I went to buy a con­cealer for my­self, I came back home sulk­ing...not be­cause I couldn’t find one but be­cause I found too many! The confusion made me de­cide that my skin is bet­ter off with­out a cor­rec­tor. Sadly, I do need cor­rec­tors to even out my skin tone and there­fore I, quite lit­er­ally, re­searched about them. Out of all that I learned, here are some quick, time-sav­ing and easy ways to choose the right cor­rec­tor.

STEP 1: FIG­URE OUT THE PROB­LEM AREA

If you think only the un­der-eye area needs to be con­cealed, think again. To even out skin, there are sev­eral ar­eas/ spots on our face that need at­ten­tion. Foun­da­tion does not com­pletely cover acne or rigid dark spots, pig­men­ta­tion and red­ness. Once you know the prob­lem ar­eas, use the var­i­ous cor­rec­tors on the re­spec­tive ar­eas to com­bat those.

STEP 2: PICK YOUR COLOUR

Yel­low Cor­rec­tor It works best on light com­plex­ion to cover any dark or blue tones spe­cially around un­der-eyes, ex­posed veins or bruises. It also so helps lift­ing the face. Use it on n your cheek­bones, bridge of the nose se and Cupid’s bow.

Peach Cor­rec­tor For light to medium skin tone, this colour works best on in­tensely dark un­der-eye cir­cles es as it com­bats blue and pur­ple un­der­tones.

Or­ange Cor­rec­tor Or­ange cor­rec­tor per­forms the same func­tion as that of a peach one, but it works won­der­fully for darker skin tone. In ad­di­tion to that, it mag­i­cally cov­ers pig­men­ta­tion, dark spots and acne too.

Pur­ple Cor­rec­tor This one gives dull and sullen faces a supreme lift. It in­stantly bright­ens yel­low skin. Use it wher­ever you skin ap­pears pale or yel­low.

Green Cor­rec­tor Green is op­po­site to red in colour our wheel; it con­ceals red­ness and red d zits on the face.
