Are you used to the nude shade of the corrector, and palettes with green, pink and purple concealers make you guess? Find out why color correctors are needed.
Concealers of nude shades are used by many, but not everyone knows what to do with color. So, they can correct a lot of skin imperfections, from dark circles under the eyes and age spots to protruding veins. The skin defects that we lament most often have their own color: reddish pimples, gray-blue circles under the eyes, yellow age spots, red freckles, brown moles, etc. In order to neutralize these spots, you need a different color. You have to choose the “opposite shade“ – this is visible on the color wheel. For example, the opposite for red is green, and for purple is yellow, and so on..
This scheme is a kind of hint which concealer to choose. They need to be matched to the color of the skin defect that you need to neutralize. For example, if you are concerned about bluish veins, neutralize them with an apricot shade of concealer, if orange freckles use a purple shade. We will understand what shades of corrective agents exist and why.
