Hello beautiful people of the world, I hope you are all doing great today. And to anyone having a crappy day/time……hang in there, those moments happen to the best of us.

NOTE: First and foremost, I would like to apologise to my fellow bloggers who think I do not support their blogs by liking and commenting on posts, it’s really not intentional, I have had a crazy stressful winter month and both my girls were (still are. mothers you know how it is) ill.Ā 

Secondly, please do not judge my eyebrows harshly cause I’m growing my them and that’s the reason for the harsh out of place look ok lol. Now that we have got that out the way, let us get down to business.Ā 

WHAT IS COLOUR CORRECTING?

As you can tell from the title, today’s post is a nice and short piece on colour correcting your skin. I have been colour correcting for such a long time now and thought to share a demonstration as well as my thoughts on it with you.

Colour correcting is when an individual uses a colour corrector to cover, conceal or counteract any skin discolouration before the application ofĀ concealer and foundation.Ā  Ā 

There’s various types of skin discolorations and each requires a different corrector. These discolorations can range from dark under eye circles, dark spots, age spots,Ā  redness, hyperpigmentation, dark shadows etc. And in some cases, corrector (mostly yellow) is usedĀ to add some warmth to our skin.

Today, I will demonstrate how to correct dark under eye circles and dark spots on dark skin using the orange corrector from L.A Girl (it retails for Ā£3.49 or Ā£9.78 for the orange, yellow and green corrector)

(my face with no more than primer, showing off my dark under eyes and dark spots)

In the photo below, IĀ  applied the orange corrector to my under eyes and dark spots with a damp beauty blender (you can also blend the product with your fingers using very light motions).

With the above picture, I decided to only corrector one side of my face in order to illustrateĀ  the difference it makes when one colour corrects (I really do not know why I did half of my face, you only need to apply and blend on areas that need it…went a bit over board with it lol)

(a comparison between a non-colour corrected face VS a corrected one)

I do not know about you but I definitely notice the difference between the two sides of my face because the corrected side has better foundation coverage compared to the non-corrected side.

PROs;

  • Corrects/ counteracts/ covers your dark spots, dark under eyes, hyperpigmentation, eye puffiness, redness, etc
  • Moisturising
  • Very pigmented
  • Blends easy
  • Very affordable

CONs;

  • I have found that some people complain that the product is a bit too orange for them (In such cases, I advise to mix the orange corrector with a bit of the yellow one in order to tone down the orangeness)

CONCLUSION

Would I recommend the colour corrector to anyone? Absolutely.Ā  Not only does it get the job done but it’s extremely affordable.Ā  Anyone interested in checking or trying out the product, you can click the links below.

However, I don't enjoy having to break the bank in order to look and be ''on fleek''. Oh and before I forget, I certainly enjoy trying out new recipes
