Tutorial: Colour Correcting

Here's how the new beauty trend works

Things are about to get colourful with the new beauty trend colour correcting: cover and neutralise skin irregularities, redness and dark circles under the eyes in a targeted manner with colour camouflage creams or concealers. 

Colour Correcting is based on colour theory using the principle of complementary colours: two specific colours cancel each other out to create a neutral tone.   

Redness can therefore be neutralised with a green cover product. Bluish shadows under the eyes, on the other hand, can be counteracted with a yellow concealer.  

Follow the next steps for perfect colour correcting results. Insider tip: for a smooth and flawless complexion, carry out steps 1 to 3 on half of the face at first – this way, it's easier to see the effect achieved. After colour correcting, don't forget to neutralise the skin tone with a concealer.

Colour Correcting Basics

Step 1

Cover redness

First, cover any redness. Use your finger or a concealer brush to apply the green Camouflage Cream Anti-Red on the affected areas of skin and then blend with the Make-Up Blending Sponge. 

Step 2

Neutralise dark shadows under the eyes

Apply the yellow Camouflage Cream Anti-Shadow on dark circles or shadows under the eyes and blend.  

Step 3

Balance out skin imperfections

The pink shade helps hide the bluish shadows often found under or around the eyes. Apply the Camouflage Cream Wake Up Effect on the inner corner of the eye and blend to give the skin a fresh and wide-awake look. 

Step 4

Neutralise corrected areas with concealer

After colour correcting, it's important to neutralise the complexion with a flesh-toned concealer. Apply the Liquid Camouflage High Coverage Concealer on the corrected areas of skin and blend. 

Step 5

Set make-up in place with powder

 

As the final step, set the make-up in place: use a Kabuki Brush to sweep a thin layer of the Healthy Look Powder over the entire face. The velvety-matt powder with a translucent finish adapts to all skin tones. The result: the interplay of four harmonious colours gives the complexion a fresh and radiant look.
