Cover up your acne completely using these green correctors

While a concealer wand may be the magic wand your dark circles need, it doesn’t quite stand as effective when covering up red, pesky acne and acne marks. However, combining the magical properties of a concealer with a green ‘corrector’ does give it back its powers. To understand how this works, we must take a look at the colour wheel. Two complementary colours when mixed together cancel each other out. Hence green, the complementary colour of red, when applied over it cancels it. This same logic is applied when it comes to makeup as well. In fact this trick is taught in professional makeup artistry as well. But you can’t just pick up the first green corrector you lay your hands on. A good corrector leaves the right amount of tint and doesn’t crease. But if you’re confused about picking the right kind, here are some of our favourites. Take a look!
