Colour Correcting For Beginners and Pros

By: AfriBeautyCollective Makeup

Colour correction is a crucial part of any woman’s makeup routine. Like contouring, the celebrated technique requires various formulas of different shades to even out the skin’s overall pigment.

In the simplest sense, colour correcting is a way to camouflage or neutralize skin discolouration before the application of foundation giving you a flawless even-toned look.

How Does It Work?

None of us has perfect skin and as a result, most concealers will not fully camouflage dark circles and redness. This is where colour correcting comes into play.

By using complementary colours you can balance and cancel out colour imperfection on your skin caused by hyperpigmentation, scarring, dark circles, and bruising. Colour Correcting balances out colour imperfections on the skin leaving you with an even skin tone and a flawless finish.
