The quick and handy guide to colour correctors

We are all currently obsessed with colour correctors. Most beauty brands have released their own version and we have added one or the other to our spring "must-have" list.

But what exactly do they do?


Each colour has a function, and it makes sense once you break it down. So let's do just that:


Peach – neutralizes dark under-eye circles on fair/medium skin tones

Pink – brightens eye area and masks fatigue


Yellow – neutralizes hyperpigmentation and dark spots

Green – counteracts redness (i.e. from rosacea, acne, broken capillaries, and sunburn)

Orange – counteracts dark under-eye circles on darker skin tones; also neutralizes veins

Lavender – sets pink correcting cream or can be used all over to brighten sallow/yellow skin


I have a video coming up on this topic for anyone still confused.
