Color correction is a recent makeup trend that involves the use of concealers or primers in a spectrum of colors other than the usual flesh-toned shades you would normally find at your favorite makeup counters. It’s a far more effective way of addressing a number of skin issues for a flawless finish – by using the color wheel, properly identifying which spots need correcting and how, you too can have perfect skin with just a few swipes. Below, we list down everything you need to know about color correcting and how to best use it to your advantage:
Identify Your Problem Areas
Color correcting might seem daunting at first. For this task, you’ll need to choose from a myriad of shades available, all designed to meet a specific need. Innisfree’s Smart Drawing Color Correcting concealers come in 4 shades, for instance – but in order to use them to best effect, you’ll first want to identify where you need to correct, what needs correcting, and which shades to use to do so. Start by looking into a mirror, close to natural light. Problem areas may include redness, dull skin, discoloration, dark circles, any spots or blemishes.
