Before deciding what colour-correcting shade to use, you should understand the exact issue you are trying to cover. It could be a zit or an embarrassing under-eye circle. However, the right shade addresses its specific problem.

1. Colour Correctors for Dark Circles

When staring back at the bluish colour of dark circles on your face, go for an orange or peach shade. If you have a fair skin tone – your best bet is the peach tone. Contrarily, if yours is a medium tone, go for the bisque tone, and lastly, if you have a darker tone, use the orange shade.

1. Can I use a Colour Corrector without my Foundation?

Yes, you can, as long as you can blend the colour corrector with a normal concealer from Femica. You could also follow up with translucent powder to keep the colour corrector on hold.

2. Can I Substitute my Colour Correctors with Lipstick?

You can use creamy lipsticks from Femica makeup products in place of colour correctors as long as you use the right shade. A pro tip is to use balmy lipstick formulas rather than matte types to achieve proper blending.

3. How long Should I leave on a Colour Corrector?

If you have on dark shades of correctors, you can leave it for up to an hour. Then for medium shades, try letting it set for 20-30 minutes. Finally, if yours is a lighter shade, 10-20 minutes could do the job.
