Color correcting is a great and easy way to hide some common skin issues such as dark circles and redness. Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty is having Urban Decay’s Color Correcting Fluid which I personally use for 50% off today only. Color correcting is all about understanding which color does what and which is best for your skin tone so here’s the scoop:
Green- Covers redness due to blemishes or broken blood vessels.
Yellow- Hides purple-hued dark circles and good for medium skin tones. Can also be used to brighten skin as a highlighter.
Peach- Hides blue-hued dark circles and deep discoloration. Good for dark skin tones.
Lavender- Reduces dullness by brightening and balancing skin with a yellow undertone. Put this on your cheeks, forehead, and chin to get a subtle glow without any shimmer.
Pink- Hides dark circles for fair skin tones.
Deep Peach- This is their newest shade and it is obviously just a more intense peach so it covers the darkest of discoloration and is best for deeper skin tones.
This is my personal makeup routine order:
- Color Correcting
- Green- I use to cover my red post-acne marks.
- Yellow- I use under my eyes to cover my dark purple circles.
- For the green I just dot the cream onto any red marks I have and with the yellow I cover the entire area under my eye. I use a sponge or beauty blender to blend the color.
- Concealer (Some people do concealer before foundation)
Right now I only use the green and yellow, but I recently saw a video of someone with a similar skin tone use the lavender and it brightened their skin so much so I think i’m gonna try it out. If you’ve been wanting to try color correcting I’d highly recommend the Urban Decay ones because the formula is so creamy and doesn’t look cakey and lasts a long time.
