21 Nov Color Correcting 101
Wow! Your face looks so flawless…what are you using? Why are you putting orange, green and yellow on your face? Wait…what? That’s all under your makeup right now? But why, how, do you cover it up? These are just a few of the questions I get asked most! My response to these questions per usual is…color correcting my secret weapon! 🔪
What is it? Well it’s no secret really, color correcting has been around long before my time but most people don’t use it unless you’re an MUA and or have attended one of my hands on makeup classes and tried color correcting for the first time! You now know the greatness that can come from those awesome little tubes!
So why color correct, what is it, is it even necessary? Well let me just tell you that for me it’s very necessary and I don’t go without color correcting when doing a full face makeup routine whether it’s on myself or a client. So what is color correcting…. here is the BIG SECRET 🙊….CONCEALER! Thanks to concealer, we’re able to hide everything from zits and dark circles to unwanted tattoos, as well as highlight cheekbones and eyes. I’m sure by now you’ve noticed concealer no longer only comes in a natural, light or beige colors…you’ve by now seen peach, pink, orange, yellow, green, lavender, blue and white concealers! If you haven’t then you might be hiding under a rock or not into concealers like I am!
Understanding the color wheel that we learned way back in grade school has come in hand, who would’ve thunk it?! 🤔😂 “Look Ma, I learned something!” So here’s how it works…
