Making color correction efficient for any professional MUA, and without a good understanding of color theory you simply can?t fix it.

Color correction uses the basis of color theory to correct the description and therefore will resist each other in contrast to the color cycle.

Sounds easy? It has a time and place for color-correction - and the real skill comes with the ability to detect the subtleties of the tone of each facial unique skin, where and when the correction should be used, and a complete understanding of the problems as well.

Problems. The solution

As the name implies, color needs to be corrected when something needs to be applied correctly. This is a solution to a problem and not necessarily with every face you do. For example, if you can?t balance the overall skin tone with just the basics and privacy like showing dark circles, reddish spots, spots or even dullness, the answer lies in color correction.

When deciding to correct, there are three steps. First, you must identify where to mark such as under the eyes or around the nose then your camouflage may be yellow or red which is exactly what you are aiming for camouflage and only then use your right shades and product You need to do what you can to establish it - and you must choose carefully, otherwise your whole make-up look can be ruined.

Paul Merchant, global head of makeup at Crolon, always has his trusty wheel: "It's always helpful to have a color wheel in your kit - I've been doing color correction for many years, artistic in all kinds of make-up, and I still mention when I have any I get the unusual camouflage.

Present and accurate

The capabilities of color correctors should not be diminished. Once you've used your color wheel and identified problem areas to understand skin tones and undertones (see MUI issue 4 for a detailed guide on this), then your fingers will have the full spectrum of solutions:

Yellow - Purple or blue undertones can be used to conceal, such as varicose veins, scars, dilated scars or a few cases of broken capillaries.

Pink and red - suitable for use around the eyes to eliminate dark circles.

Orange and salmon - a remedy for dark circles under the eyes and dark spots, caused by ageing or sun damage, and even a blue camouflage, and Creolan educator, Jose Brands, who regularly uses oranges to naturally tone some deep skin.

Green - one of the most commonly used modifier shades; Use to mask anything from moderate redness and blemishes to birthmarks, rashes, acne scars and anything with red features, especially in skin conditions.

Peach - A lighter version of the orange color, so use it on pale blues like the eye circles below.

Violet, purple and blue - Choose the right orange to neutralize the yellow tones and purple and blue, so use dark spots and camouflage to cover the tan.

Take your time deciding on your correction technique and a good rule of thumb to match the strength of the color with how light or dark the skin tone is thumb If the skin is fair, you may need a palette shade in your palette, medium to olive skin version and Deep skin tone will call for darker skin. For example, pink may work best under the eyes for pale skin models, while darker ones require more orange-peach color; The same rules apply across all correction sheds.

Correct modifier

There are a variety of products and applications for color correction that you can change, the most common are creams and liquids and the solution you use depends on personal preference with the specificity of the skin complaint.

Liquids like Ultra Make-Up Base are also ideal for minor corrections and will provide perfect coverage; Suitable for maintaining skin balance and cutting blemishes.

The cream provides medium and high coverage to hide more obvious color, skin complaints and pigmentation. Dermacolor camouflage cream is specially formulated to correct skin problems or try the Ultra Foundation Color Circle, which comes in three combinations of three, four and six color wheels.

Make a mistake

The last thing you need to do when applying it is to show a corrective color through the foundation or over-illuminate the skin and make the areas look very light, so it?s best to analyze the skin in shaded spots in extreme natural, neutral light.

Use the letters at the top and bottom of the primer. Be careful if you are correcting a specific skin complaint and using a water-based primer that takes care of sensitive skin like Ultra Underbust. Always set each layer of make-up with a powder that is compatible with the foundation; The most common mistake to correct is not effectively set, where colors can blend into the skin looking weird and messy.
