Why I Color Correct

If you guys know me, you know that I have dark circles under my eyes and on the sides of my face. When I was younger, I didn’t know that hyper pigmentation was an issue with darker skinned black females and I would try different things to combat the problem short of bleaching my skin. All of the harsh and abrasive things that I used growing up added to the darkness in these areas.

After researching how I can mask these unflattering areas, I found the one thing that works wonderfully for me–color correction.  When using the right color corrector, I can transform my make up from okay to flawless or just use color corrector to mask my imperfections without using a lot of makeup.

My favorite color corrector: Pro. Conceal HD concealer by LA Girl

 

After, I use a beauty blender to blend out the color corrector making sure I only blend in the needed areas and then blend outward to eliminate any lines of demarcation.

Here I am with only Orange Color Corrector, Elf’s HD Translucent Powder, eye brows by Anastasia Beverly Hills and Dorothy by Magnolia Makeup on my lips.

I know you may have a lot of questions concerning color correcting for your skin color or need.  I have dark circles, so I use orange color corrector.  I’ll link  on the picture below a site you can visit to help you out.  Also, my favorite make up vloggers like Destiny Godley covers color correction  a lot in her videos, so you can check out her vlogs to get more information.

  1. […] I love the L.A. Girl PRO.conceal HD concealer in Orange Corrector GC990. I have raccoon eyes and hypepigmentation on the sides of my face. I conceal these areas prior to putting my foundation on and it makes a beautiful full coverage finish. Because of that, I do not have to use a lot of foundation but still have a full coverage look.
