The Ultimate Guide to Color-Correcting For Your Skin Tone and Concern
Color correctors aren't exactly what we'd call "self-explanatory" when it comes to figuring out what shade to apply where. That's why many of us opt for a simple, flesh-toned concealer instead. However, while concealer is an awesome complexion perfecter, color-correcting products can actually work more effectively at erasing any skin woe, from acne to dark circles and hyperpigmentation.
The theory behind it is simple: contradictory shades cancel each other out. Remember the color wheel you learned about in grammar school? Well, it actually applies to your makeup routine in this case, because hues from the opposite end of the diagram work together as a power camouflage duo.
Though color correctors are miracle workers for unmanageable skin, it can still be hard to decipher the exact placement when applying. So we tapped celebrity makeup artist and beauty expert Neil Scibelli to help us create this handy face map to effectively outline how to color correct your way to looking #flawless. The next time blemishes or under-eye shadows plague your look, use this guide to cover up like a pro.
