Correct that Color!
We all know even the most flawless of skin can act up every and then. We here at Haut Appetit are prone to redness and discoloration from stress, the weather, and a plethora of other skin foes every now and then. What does a beauty queen do when she needs to get her skin’s tone evened out and uniform? Use one of our top beauty correctors, of course!
While color correcting can seem a bit daunting to those who haven’t done it before, it’s quite simple when you break it down. Essentially, look for colors that are across the color wheel from your problem areas. For example, if you suffer from ruddy, red-tinged skin, go for a color corrector that’s a green hue. It’s all about neutralizing those pesky problem spots!
Issue: Reddish acne areas, rosacea, broken blood vessels and red rings on all skin types.
Solve: We love Smashbox’s Photo Finish Color Correcting Primer for those problem red areas. With its green hue, vitamins A and E and antioxidants, it prevents wrinkles, soothes and corrects all at the same time.
Issue: Extremely dark circles with blue undertones on medium to dark skin.
Solve: For those of us with darker skin tones and extreme dark circles, Becca’s Backlight Targeted Color Corrector in Papaya is heaven sent. It’s highly pigmented to neutralize even the darkest of spots and the leaves skin luminous.
Issue: Yellowing patches on light and fair skin.
Solve: While using purple might seem clownish to some, we beauty experts know its secret powers. For those facing yellow spots and are fair-skinned, Color FX’s Click Corrector in lavender is just right for you. Evening out jaundiced patches and brightening them with purple power, it’s ideal for even the most ravaged skin.
Issue: Overall dullness in all skin types.
Solve: If you’re unsure of which correcting color to use, try a yellow one to start. The most versatile of the correcting spectrum, yellow based primers work on most skin tones and even out and brighten up dull skin. We love Urban Decay’s Naked Skin Correcting Fluid for our dull days.
