How to Use Your Color Corrector Palette

Posted by on 5/15/2017
Makeup is something that is used to hide flaws and complement naturally beautiful features. However, in some cases, simply using foundation, blush, and concealer isn’t enough. In situations where you’re on-stage, in films, on TV, or in a photo shoot, a more powerful and effective type of makeup is necessary. Having a color corrector palette is the perfect solution when you need a flawless looking skin tone—even in front of HD cameras. However, it is very important to make sure that you know exactly how to use your palette to yield the best results.

The Importance of Using the Right Color Palette

A color corrector palette is based on the principle that each color has its exact color opposite. When colors that are the exact opposite mix, they cancel each other out. This means that unwanted colors in the skin (such as dark purple undereye circles, yellow bruises, and red undertones) can disguised using the right colored makeup. In a color corrector palette, all the colors needed to conceal typically skin flaws are included—just make sure to get the right palette! Some color correctors are meant for darker skin tones, while others are meant for lighter skin.

What Are the Colors in The Palette Used For?

When using a color corrector palette, make certain that you understand what type of discoloration each of the colors is used for. It’s also essential to remember that each color should be used lightly and should blend well with your foundation. That way, you (or the person you are applying makeup to) won’t look splotchy. The Colors and Their Uses:
  • Green - Hides red undertones.
  • Yellow - Gets rid of purple undereye circles and deep red discoloration.
  • Orange – Hides any blueness in the skin.
  • Pink - Adds brightness where it’s needed.
