When it comes to your skin you may have a number of issues that may need extra attention when it comes to concealing. Your makeup routine may already contain a high coverage concealer but perhaps you’re after something to hide things like redness and discolouration. This is where colour correcting concealers come in. Colour correcting makeup has been around for a while and is much loved by makeup artists worldwide. Why? Well, these useful shades are able to counteract unwanted colours in the skin. Colour correcting makeup used to be something that only the professionals used in their kits but we’ve launched our Colour Correcting Stack so that you can get pro results in the comfort of your own home with all the products you need in one place.

Colour correcting makeup at home, made easy

Using colour correcting makeup might seem like a daunting task. You may not know where to start and you might be a little confused by the colours. But fear not, we are here to help. By creating our Colour Correcting Stack we’ve made it easier than ever for you to access helpful colours that can aid in your concealing mission.

In the colour correcting stack you’ll find five shades, all designed to conceal different shades and undertones in the skin. Each shade has been specially formulated using our unique techniques to create shades with unbeatable coverage. By using the colour wheel theory of two colours that are opposite each other cancel each other out, we came up the shades Mauve, Green, Yellow, Rose and Orange to counteract a number of unwanted shades in the skin.

What does each colour correcting shade help to neutralise?

Although colour correcting may seem like a complicated and overwhelming makeup technique, once you know what each colour does, the technique is easy to implement into your makeup routine. So what does each colour actually do? Well, our first colour correcting shade Mauve is the ideal choice when it comes to neutralising yellow tones in the skin. This means that the shade is ideal for helping in the concealing of conditions like Xanthelasma. Our second colour correcting shade Green is the perfect choice for counteracting redness. This means the shade is particularly useful for those with Rosacea, Acne, general redness and for those who have birthmarks which contain a lot of red tones like Port Wine Stain birthmarks.

The third colour correcting shade Yellow is the best option for neutralising purple tones in the skin. This makes the Yellow useful for helping to conceal dark circles. The fourth colour correcting shade Rose is perfect for those with medium to dark skin tones who are looking to add radiance to their skin and to improve the appearance of dark spots. And the fifth and final shade, Orange works fantastically at counteracting blue tones in the skin. This not only makes the product good for dark circles, but it also works well in tattoos that contain a lot of black ink. This is because many black coloured inks are actually made with blue bases. This means that if you’re finding it difficult to cover up a tattoo with a lot of black or blue ink, Orange may an option that you wish to explore.

How to apply colour correcting makeup

When it comes to the application of colour correcting makeup a key thing to remember is that a little goes a long way. Only a small amount of coloured concealer is required for maximum effect. To apply simply pop it on the area of skin that you wish to neutralise and blend into the skin using the sponge provided with the Colour Correcting Stack for easy hassle-free application. Once blended proceed to top the area with a shade of Veil Cover Cream that matches your skin tone and set with a dusting of finishing powder to achieve the longest wear time possible. It’s also worth noting that all Veil Cover Cream shades are waterproof and the Colour Correcting Stack shades are no exception.
