After putting all your color correcting stick on you face it has to look like this:



Crazy as it may seem, but is the proper way on how you conceal all your skin problems to achieve a flawless makeup look.

Another tips:


Apply your foundation or tinted moisturizer first, that way you don’t have to use as much of the color correctors as you would if you put them on your makeup-free face.

Please also keep in mind that you’re not covering a tattoo or a bruise when color correcting, these are just shadows you’re covering, So apply them lightly by patting them on with your clean fingertip, so the warmth of your skin helps them blend into your complexion. Lastly, make sure you’re using the right version of the color-correcting shade. (Reference above).

For example, if you have fair skin, you’ll most likely be using the palest colors of the shade range when it comes to pinks, yellows, greens, and purples.

If you have medium to olive skin, the color-correcting shades will also most likely be a touch darker than the pastel versions that, say, fair-skinned folks would use.

And for deeper skin tones, where someone with pale skin would use light pink under their eyes, a darker-skinned person would use a more orangey peach hue; the same rule goes for the greens, yellows, and purples you might use.
