Don’t let Colour Correctors Scare you anymore!

If you’ve looked at colour correctors before and decided they’re not for you, we don’t blame you! Tubes and palettes with crazy looking colours can be a little intimidating, but don’t fret because beauty editors at SHE put together this guide to breakdown everything you need to know.

If neutral skin tone concealers aren’t getting the job done for you, chances are you need colour correctors. They cover a multitude of sins, from a late night out to pesky, unsightly blemishes, pigmentation and beyond. Finding the right corrector for you depends on colour and consistency you require. If you have an extreme case of discouloration, you’ll need a heavier product with a more intense hue. To even out mild to moderate discouloration you’ll want a sheerer formula in a softer hue. For colours you can always refer to the colour wheel or this simplified chart we’ve laid down for you. Whichever corrector you use, make sure to press in your neutral concealer over it, otherwise it might show through.
