Our Creme Camouflage Correctors For More Major Imperfections
I'm noticing all these concealers and foundations labeled as "correctors." Can you explain the concept to me?
Color correctors, also known as neutralizers, are used to "correct" hard-to-cover skin discolorations. They're based on the idea that when you want to neutralize a color, you place its opposing color over it. That's why, for example, color correctors for red-toned skin are green tinted.
The skin is made up of four types of pigments, of which every individual has a unique combination. They are: oxygenated hemoglobin, or what makes blood red; reduced hemoglobin, which is the pigment that appears blue in veins seen through the skin; melanin, the major pigment, which darkens when exposed to sunlight; and carotene, responsible for the yellow tones in skin.
The undertone colors of skin are either predominantly blues (cool) or red (warm) in appearance; if skin has a higher proportion of carotene (yellow pigment), it will appear warm as well.
The Rules for Neutralizing Color
- Different corrector shades will interact with your skin (and each other) in different ways, and everyone's skin has its own personal mixture of pigments and undertones.
- If your skin is beige toned and you have blue or green undertones, yellow-based correctors will even out skin tone by neutralizing blue, and pink-based correctors will neutralize green.
- If you have brown-toned skin and you want to hide blue and gray undertones, choose a peach-orange-based corrector.
- If you have a yellow-based skin tone and you want to even it out, choose a lavender-shade corrector, which neutralizes yellow.
How to Apply Neutralizers
You can apply correctors just as you do concealers, with your fingers or a concealer brush.
It's best not to dip your fingers directly into the corrector because of the possibility of contamination, so use a small spatula or cotton swab.
Be conservative in your application. You shouldn't need a lot ‑- just a few pin-sized drops.
Blend the corrector over the area you want to cover with your fingertips or a makeup sponge. I like fingertips because they're warm and help in "melting" the concealer into the skin.
Don't use a corrector product that's too dry, even if you have an oily complexion. Dry products are difficult to blend and don't look as natural on the skin.
