Colour Correcting: It’s underneath what counts
The benefit of corrective concealers is to alter and adjust the colouration of your skin prior to applying concealer or foundation. These coloured concealers counteract the unwanted colouring on the areas of your face, such as purplish dark circles underneath your eyes or unwanted red blemishes. Understandably, this can be a daunting process at first, as applying bright orange or green marks to your face can seem foreign. But, what if the final look is life-changing? The NYX Colour Correcting Palette is a great product to buy to kick-start colour correcting in your beauty regime. This product includes all the necessary shades to cut down your time spent applying foundation which could even give you extra minutes of sleep in the morning!
