Makeup can be a complex world, with a myriad of rules and products to take into account. One such consideration is colour correction, which can often be intimidating due to its vibrant hues and intense pigmentation. As a result, many individuals may shy away from this technique altogether. Today, we'll begin by exploring the fundamental principles of colour correction.
What are colour correctors? Colour correctors are makeup products that correct visual discolouration, such as redness, sallowness, sunspots, or dark circles. They work by using colours that oppose the discolouration they are correcting. Different colours suit different skin concerns, including orange, purple, and green, which are the most popular.
Did you know that green is the opposite of red on the colour wheel? This means that it can effectively cancel out any red tones. There are additional advantages to using green in your colour palette. Green has a cooling effect and when applied over red tones, it can effectively reduce or eliminate their warmth.
The HydroPure Colour Correcting Serum by jane iredale is a new ultra-hydrating serum that uses a sheer green tint to counterbalance redness, calm the skin, and combat redness-causing dryness. This serum is composed of essential elements such as Allantoin, Hyaluronic Acid, Olive Squalane, CoQ10, Calendula, Algae, Willow Bark Extract, and Aloe, explicitly targeting and treating rosacea and redness while providing intense hydration. It also helps preserve the skin's moisture barrier and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
While it's commonly known that green colour corrector can help neutralise redness in the skin, it's important to note that it can also benefit a range of other skin types and concerns. Whether you're dealing with rosacea, problematic skin, acne-scarring, or general unevenness, incorporating a green corrector into your routine may be helpful.
When applying colour correcting, there are some valuable tips to remember.
- It's essential to remember that less is more.
- To apply the colour corrector, it should be put on before the concealer and foundation.
- To avoid worsening redness and irritation of the skin, it is recommended to dab or tap the product onto the skin rather than rubbing it in.
To get the best results from the HydroPure Colour Correcting Serum, we suggest using one to two pumps and blending the pigment and serum with your fingers. This will activate the formula's ingredients. Gently massage the product into your skin, starting with the areas with the most redness, and blend it well. If you need more coverage, apply your favourite jane iredale foundation on top.
