Colour correcting has been around for ages but has only really hit the mainstream in the past year. I’ve had a lot of questions from people who’ve heard that green colour corrector products are wonderful for those of us with facial redness… but understandably, many are put off by the thought of ending up with a green face! So I’ve recorded a very quick tutorial showing how to cover redness with green concealer.
The basic idea behind colour correctors is that they help to neutralise the colours in your skin by covering them with the opposite shade on the colour-wheel. So for dark circles you’d use a salmon colour, for sallow skin you’d choose lilac, and for redness you apply green products. They designed to help your skin to reach a more neutral colour so that you can then apply make up over the top to unify the skin tone. It also means you can use less foundation and/or a lighter coverage foundation. I chose the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum in this tutorial as this is a medium coverage foundation that I would normally layer on my cheeks and use concealer to fully cover my rosacea. As this video shows, that’s not necessary when you know how to cover redness with green concealer.
So here you go, I hope you enjoy it!
