Like contouring to create cheekbones or strobing to enhance features, colour correcting is now a concrete step in many a make-up artist's beautifying routine. Why?
Because colour correcting...correctly, can hide blemishes and lift even the dullest of complexions in minutes.
Ok, we know a rainbow pastel palette and told to use it as concealer, it's tempting to dismiss it immediately. Trust, it works.
Go for purple to brighten dull skin, peach under your eyes before you conceal to neutralise blue tones, green to help cover red patches and yellow to add radiance. Simples.
So now you know what each hue means, take a look through the very best colour correctors and colour corrector palettes out there.

A few drops of Algenist's green correcting fluid mixed in with foundation does more to mask redness than even the creamiest or most pigmented concealer out there - and we've tried them all. Anti-ageing alguronic acid and microalgae oil provides hydration and antioxidant protection, so it treats the skin as it neutralises angry blotches.
With its yellow undertones, olive complexions have a tendency to look sallow in places, which makes this a must-have. It's like a magic wand for balancing skin that appears washed out. Use a damp make-up sponge to press it into the skin and follow with concealer and foundation.
If pigmentation is your biggest skin bugbear, snap up a tube of this stuff. Thanks to the added vitamin A, the peach-toned formula blurs dark and uneven patches while ultra-hydrating vitamin E helps create a smooth canvas for foundation.
