Color correcting can kind of seem like a step in your makeup process that may seem unnecessary, but for some people, it is essential for flawless makeup. I wanted to go over the steps to color correcting for those of you who need the information or just in case you wanted a refresher. I hope you enjoy it!


Green: Helps hide redness. If you are a person who has an overall red or pink tint, you can mix a little bit of the green in with your primer.


Lavender/purple: Covers sallowness; also brightens and corrects yellow tones.


Peach: Helps hide dark circles or spots, especially blue-hued circles. It is mostly used to hide the eyes’ signs of fatigue.


Yellow: Helps hide dull skin or purple hued dark circles. Also helps gives the skin a more natural glowing look.


Pink: Helps conceal dark areas of the skin, especially for fair skin. Can also be used to brighten dull skin or even out the skin tone.
