A couple months ago, when I first started really getting into makeup, I had no idea where to even begin with color correcting concealers. I didn’t know whether to put them on thick or thin, blend them in or not or to put them on before or after foundation. Its really a tricky little science we have here!
I have always had dark bluish purple undertones under my eye area, and when I was coming up we didn’t have color correctors! Atleast not that I knew of. It was either pile on the regular concealer or cake on the powder and call it a day. This was in the late 90s/early 2000s so we didn’t have the convenience of watching YouTubers work their glam magic!
I recently watched one of my favorite gurus, Laura Lee do a yellow concealer tutorial and of course I had to try it!
I went cheapo and bought the L.A. Girl Pro Conceal in Yellow and also the Maybelline Color Correction Yellow stick (the old school one that looks like a tube of lipstick) but after trying both out, I prefer the L.A. Girl.
I have been applying this to my undereye area as well as my eyelids after primer and before foundation. I pat it in with my beautyblender and instantly I see a difference in the veiny eyelids and the discoloration of my under eye! I then do my foundation and then use my regular concealer (NARS Radiant Creamy in Custard) to bring everything together and set with Too Faced Born This Way setting powder.
I feel like I look more awake, refreshed and alive as compared to before.
I also ordered the new light yellow concealer from L.A. Girl and I think that this does wonders on fairer complexions, as my lovely summer tan is sadly fading!
As I am starting to feel more comfortable with color correcting, I am definitely going to try out their lavender and green concealers!
At $4.99 a tube on ULTA.com you can easily stock up on these!
