Colour-correcting isn’t just a technique for YouTuber’s and professional makeup artist’s - in fact, you’d be surprised how simple colour-correcting has become for regular makeup lovers like us.
Since redness is a concern for a lot of our customers, I thought what better product to talk about than Make Up For Ever’s Redness Correcting Primer. Yep, that’s right - no tricky cream products, just a primer. You can manage that, can’t you?
If you’ve never delved into colour-correcting, you might be wondering how slathering on a green primer will fix your redness. Cast your mind back to the colour wheel. Green and red are opposites, so green neutralises red tones.
Why Do I Struggle With Redness?!Redness can be caused by a variety of factors, like inflammation, rosacea, sun damage, broken capillaries, heat exposure and skin sensitivity. Redness is usually caused by the blood vessels in the face dilating, causing a reddened appearance on the skin's surface. There are treatments and skincare available that can curb facial redness, but for a quick fix, colour-correcting is the way to go.
What Does This Primer Do?- It creates the ideal base for long-lasting, flawless makeup
The lightweight, hydrating base features sheer green pigments
Designed to correct and neutralise facial redness
Smooths the appearance of pores & fine lines
The silicone-based, green-toned formula goes on transparent
Boosts skin radiance for a brighter complexion
How To Use:Apply a thin layer of the Redness Correcting Primer all over the face or concentrate it on problem areas using clean fingertips or a foundation brush. Wait a few seconds for the primer to settle before applying your foundation and concealer.
Pro Tip: If you find you haven’t got the coverage you want or notice some redness coming through, after you’ve applied your foundation, blend a very small amount of Redness Correcting Primer with your concealer and apply it to any concentrated areas to diminish any visible redness.
