Color Correcting Makeup by the Numbers—A Guide to Getting Even

Most of us don’t even bat an eyelash when presented with dramatic makeup tutorials that involve wearable lip art, sunset eye shadow or even royal blue mascara. However, when faced with a kaleidoscope of colored concealers, designed to blur out any and all imperfections, we head for the hills. This is probably due to the fact that we’ve totally cozied up to our tried-and-true neutral concealers that do the job just fine (and don’t look like face paint). But “fine” is not “great,” and sometimes you gotta go out on a limb to get flawless results, right? We’ve all done stranger things.

Over the past year, color-correcting concealers have gained a ton of popularity, thanks to social media (you know you’ve seen at least one clown contouring tutorial). Heck, we’ve even hopped on the beauty bandwagon and tried it ourselves. But we totally understand that this concept remains an untapped resource to many, and we want to make sure you’re getting the best coverage out there—literally. So, we created an all-inclusive guide to uncovering the mystery behind each color-correcting shade and exactly how to use them!
