Contouring: Choosing the Proper Colors is the Key
Before applying the foundation it is very important that you do color correcting, a step often forgotten. This is not to be confused with clown contouring, rather it is a professional technique used to wipe away your dark circles and redness for a more blended complexion.
Color correcting cancels out the effect of blemishes and unevenness that is on the face. This serves as a base for smooth foundation application. If you have purplish-blue bags under your eyes, we would advise you to use a red or orange color to get rid of the darkness. To get the perfect red cheek look, all you have to do is apply a little bit green concealer. Hints of pale yellows and other such tones can be made vibrant with a little bit of purple or blue. Peach and yellow operate as instant brighteners for dull or dark shadows.
Though it may seem like a ton of extra work, when you see the end result, you will definitely think that each second spent color correcting was worth it. This method amends things that a normal foundation and concealer cannot hide.
