Always prep your face
Whenever you go to do your makeup, you should always prep your skin before hand. Prepping your skin first will allow your makeup to apply more smoothly and blend better. Before starting with your color corrector prep under your eyes by applying your favorite eye cream.
Use a color corrector
Color corrector is used to fix and discoloration your face may have, like dark spots or redness. Here is a breakdown of some different color correctors and what they are used for:
- Green- Use a green color corrector to combat any redness.
- Yellow- This is best to cover any purple tones; like veins, bruises, or even under eye circles.
- Orange/Peach- This is your best option for correcting blueish dark under eye circles. If you have darker skin, opt for an orange. If your skin is lighter, it's best to use a peach color corrector.
- Purple- If you have any sallowness or yellowness, a purple color corrector is the best option.
