The concealer and corrector are part of the makeup products that can instantly awaken tired and uneven skin tone. Come learn to play with textures and colors to get a fresh, unified but not plastered complexion!

The Concealer

Anti-dark circles are surely the most well-known complexion correction product. As the name suggests, it is supposed to erase traces of fatigue and give the air cooler. The skin of the contour of the eye is sensitive and easily marks. So, to avoid drying out and marking the small fine lines, creamy texture creams are the most appropriate.

Anti-dark circles apply before or after the liquid foundation according to the desired coverage (before the foundation when you have slept 10 hours and after the foundation for the night after agitation). In the case of a foundation powder, it applies before to avoid pies.

Your concealer can be slightly lighter than your skin for an immediate defatting effect.

Here is a small explanatory drawing of the areas of the look where it should be applied. You can also use a brush (by smoothing the product) as your little fingers (by tapping the product).

The "light reflector" concealer

As the name suggests, the light reflector is not there to correct imperfections but to give a little boost to the complexion. By optical effect, it may help to look defatiguer and restore freshness to the complexion, but it serves strictly nothing in case of large red button or suitcases under the eyes.

This type of fluid-textured product is often presented in the form of a pen / brush. It is applied after the foundation and the concealer/corrector, and before the powder. Here is a small explanatory drawing of where to apply it.

From concealer to color correctors

Redness, sun spots, veins ... Correcting a colored imperfection can be difficult. Fortunately, the principles of colorimetry are there to spin a little helping hand. It's very effective and it only takes a few seconds.

Here is a color wheel. In front of each color is its opposite color. When these two colors are placed on top of each other, they cancel each other out. In makeup, this wheel is very easy to use: just identify the color of the problem to be camouflaged (e.g. purple rings) and apply a corrector of the opposite color (here yellow / mustard).

Corrector Wheel

After using the color corrector, do not forget to use another concealer/corrector, this time in your skin tones, so that the correction is invisible.
