The Ultimate Guide to Color Correcting

From a professional makeup artist point of view, color correcting should only be applied if you’re having skin challenges that need attention before makeup. Concealing rosacea, a nasty pimple, melasma or even hyper pigmentation due to sun damage. To do it for the sake of doing it because its “trendy” really is unnecessary and if not applied properly, can look really heavy in person.
Think about it, why would you add on 10-20 more minutes to your routine every day if you didn’t have to?
Heres a list of products I use on my clients when dealing with dark circles, pimples and hyper pigmentation.
