Color correcting is basically using different colored concealers to cover dark circles under the eyes, redness on the skin or brightening sallow skin. You can find color correcting concealers in cream, liquid and stick formulations. Here is a guide to color correction:
GREEN: Minimizes redness. Perfect for rosacea, acne, sunburn, broken capillaries.
PURPLE: Counters sallow (yellow) undertones. Perfect for correcting yellow foundations or skin tones.
CARAMEL: Counters ashiness. Perfect for medium-dark skin tones, warming golden tones.
BLUE: Adds radiance. Perfect for brightening porcelain and fair skin tones.
YELLOW: Counters purple or lightens darker skin tones. Perfect for concealing dark circles or purple bruises.
PINK: Brightens fair to medium skin tones. Perfect for brightening yellow skin tones.
Currently I am liking the concealer & corrector palette from BH Cosmetics http://go.magik.ly/ml/3bb2/. The palette comes in Light, Medium and Dark. The palette contains three shades of concealer so you can customize the right shade of concealer for your skin tone and three color correcting shades that will help correct redness, dark circles or sallowness. I love this palette and will be repurchasing when I hit pan on this!
I hope this helps you understand what color correcting is and helps you when you are shopping for color correcting concealers. Until next time, stay happy, healthy and beautiful!
