There has been a lot of talk about color-correcting nowadays. I’ve been correcting my dark circles for a while. Sometimes I use red lipstick, which you can read about here. Other times, I use products specifically made for color-correcting. I’m still new to the other colors, besides peach and salmon. I wanted a palette where I could experiment without spending too much money and the NYX Color-Correcting Concealer palette has it all. Today, all I’m going to focus on is the green corrector.
The green helps to cancel out redness. It follows the color-wheel idea, where one color can cancel out another. You can read more about it here. My process is very simple. All I do is apply moisturizer and primer before I apply the corrector. I use my finger to dab the green onto the red areas of my face. Around my nose and cheeks are wear I apply it normally. Then, I apply dots to my pimples. It doesn’t completely fade them, but it tones the color down after you apply foundation or CC creams.
I did apply the salmon color of the palette on my dark circles, as well.
It does make quite a difference! In this particular palette, the green color is a good beginner color. The texture is quite creamy and blends easier. I want to look for something thicker, because I find this one sheer. It does work, but I want to see if a more pigmented one will help my skin look even better.
I hope this helped any of you who want to try color-correcting! Feel free to leave any questions or comments!
