Make Up For Ever 5 Camouflage Cream Palette Color Correct and Concealer

Make Up For Ever 5 Camouflage Cream Palette Color Correct and Concealer

Given the emergence of colour correction as a "trend" this year, as well as the colour correction how-to story or three most of us have written by now, this question from the Lipstick League should be unsurprising: Do you use colour correcting complexion products such as powders, primers or concealers? If so, what type do you use?

I rarely use colour correctors, actually. I might occasionally need a little hit of pale peach cream corrector if my under-eye circles are particularly blue-y, or I might use a full-coverage concealer such as the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Aquacealer Concealer instead of my usual Laneige Cushion Concealer SPF 30. A full-coverage formula will cover any discolouration completely, and thus make colour corrector unnecessary. Time saved.
