To Brighten Sal­low Skin

What: On light skin tones, think pink to neu­tral­ize sal­low­ness. For medium tones, purple can­cels out yel­low­ing. Try: 1. Ur­ban De­cay Naked Skin Color Cor­rect­ing Fluid, in Laven­der, $28, ur­ban de­cay.com; or 2. YSL For­ever

Light Cre­ator CC Primer, in Rose, $45, yslbeau­tyus.com. How: Ap­ply as you would a foun­da­tion, fo­cus­ing mainly around the cen­ter of the face, where yel­low­ness tends to be the most ap­par­ent, ex­plains Li­jha Ste­wart, di­rec­tor of artistry and ed­u­ca­tion at Make Up For Ever.

To Hide Dark Cir­cles

What: “If you’re go­ing to in­vest in one cor­rec­tor, make it for the un­der-eye area,” says New York City–based makeup artist An­drew So­tomayor. Apri­cot knocks out gray, blue, and purple tones on light-tomedium skin, while or­ange and red tones erase shad­ows on darker com­plex­ions. Try: 3. Becca Back­light Tar­geted Colour Cor­rec­tor, in Peach, $30, bec­ca­cos­met­ics .com; or 4. Smash­box Color Cor­rect­ing Stick, in Look Less Tired-Dark, $23, smash box.com. How: Dark­ness oc­curs pre­dom­i­nantly be­low the in­ner cor­ners of the eye, so con­cen­trate the color there, then dab your reg­u­lar con­cealer over the en­tire un­der-eye area.

To Con­ceal Red­ness

What: A green primer is your go-to for rosacea or prom­i­nent, wide­spread flush­ing. For slight blotch­i­ness around the nose or mouth, yel­low is the bet­ter bet. Try: 5. Make Up For Ever Skin Equal­izer

in Red­ness Cor­rect­ing Primer, $37, make­up­for­ever.com;

or 6. Chanel Le Blanc Light Cre­ator Bright­en­ing Makeup

Base, in Mi­mosa, $55, chanel .com. How: Use a con­cealer brush and a pea-size amount of prod­uct over rud­di­ness, ad­ding more as needed.

To Even Out Sunspots

What: Freck­les and hy­per­pig­men­ta­tion can ap­pear gray when ob­scured with foun­da­tion alone. Spot-treat us­ing yel­low for fair-tomedium tones, or peach for deeper com­plex­ions. Try: 7. Marc Ja­cobs Beauty Cover(t) Stick Color Cor­rec­tor, in Get­ting Warmer, $42, mar­c­ja­cob­s­beauty.com. How: Ap­ply cor­rec­tor di­rectly to the spot, then blend with a fin­ger or small brush.

To Hide a Pim­ple

What: Wake up to a blem­ish on your wed­ding day? Grab a green con­cealer (re­ally !). Try: 8. Essence Cos­met­ics Say No to Red­ness, $3, essence-cos­met­ics.com. How: Use an eye­liner brush to dot a small amount onto the cul­prit. Fol­low with a light layer of foun­da­tion.

To Add Ra­di­ance

What: A true pink coun­ter­acts dull­ness and bright­ens pale com­plex­ions. On medium-to-olive skin, yel­low adds lu­mi­nos­ity. Try: 9. Al­genist’s Re­veal Con­cen­trated Color Cor­rect­ing Drops, in Pink, $38, al­genist.com; or 10. Lancôme Mir­a­cle CC Cush­ion Color Cor­rect­ing

Primer, in Yel­low, $40, sephora.com. How: Get that lit-from-within glow by ap­ply­ing it over your en­tire face be­fore putting on foun­da­tion.
