Colour Correcting like a Professional
When we see color correcting, it’s usually pictures of light to medium skin shade with some acne or dark circles. I find it rare to see people posting or giving advice for women of color, let alone that not all makeup brands have a full shade range… The whole point of color correcting is to neutralize skin imperfections. It all comes down to a color theory; if you mix two opposites colors, they make brown. So, for example, green neutralizes red/pink, purple neutralizes yellow. Dark skin usually comes with dark circles and hyperpigmentation with a Blue/ Violet undertone; for this, you need to use a red color corrector. Some of my favorite red color correctors at the moment are Charlotte Tilbury Magic Vanish Color CorrectorCharlotte Tilbury - Magic Vanish Color Corrector, SEPHORA COLLECTION - Bright Future Color CorrectorsSephora Collection Bright Future Color Correctors, and #Temptu - Color Corrector Palette[products]#[FiveStars]Temptu Color Corrector Palette. I particularly like Temptu. Five shades to perfect and even out all skin types and tones. Temptu uses a silicone-based formula that corrects all types of discolorations for a balanced complexion. This brand has been around for 35 years, and they specialize in airbrush makeup made initially for makeup artists and beauty professionals and their clients, now available to everyone.

Do You Really Need Concealer and Eyeshadow Primer? 💥
Well… Yes and no, let me explain... So you want your eye shadow to have the best color pay off and durability possible? You are going to want to apply it on a base. Imagine you’re painting a wall, to make the color look bright and uniform, you must prime it or paint it white with a base coat then put the color on top. In doing so, you have created a base to which the color can stick to it. ❤️ Without it, your skin will absorb the eyeshadow making it dull and lifeless, and on hot days the color will merely run off and leave you looking tired. This is why we use primers for eyeshadow, but this is the thing - you don’t need a specific eye primer. Stop the Press! 👀You can do the same thing using a great concealer, but it must be a quality concealer with staying power. 💪🏼 As long as you use something as a base and make sure that it’s a matt product with some powder, you will notice the results, and they will be positive.☀️ Go for…. KVD Vegan Beauty Concealer - Lock-It Concealer Crème A dual product use to conceal under the eyes and also on the top lid as a primer. It’s a great product that comes in 21 shades, so there will be one for your skin color. Fenty Beauty Invismatte Blotting Powder The next stage is to add a little blotting powder to your skin, especially if you have oily skin and are prone to breakouts. Now we are talking about staying power, and this means your eyeshadow won’t move. Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion If you decide you want a primer and it’s always better to have everything than nothing, choose Urban Decay, it’s a great product from a fabulous brand. Investing in the right products is always a good move.

They can always look a little better. So my two favorite products I want to tell you about are from Anastasia Beverly Hills. They are the right products to get perfect brows and the perfect brush. Anastasia started the brand with the idea the eyebrows should be shaped to suit the face shape, and this method worked since then has designed and sold award-winning brow products.

No dropping, and the product has staying power. To get it right, you need the best brush for the job. First, apply the lighter shade at the beginning of the brow, and the darker shade for the wing of the brow gives a perfect overall effect and creates a natural look. Zoeva 317 Wing Liner Brush 💟 The Zoeva 317 Wing Liner Brush is the perfect brush to use with the powder duo - Use a thin angled brush for precision. Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel 🌟 A lightweight, clear eyebrow gel that really holds your brows in place. Use it by itself, or you can mix in with other brow products to complete the look.
