Colour Correct your skin imperfections with Lise Watier, Quo, Avon and Physicians Formula!

Ever looked at a colour corrector and thought - that looks really cool but I have no idea what all those colours are for? No worries, here's a quick primer on what colour does what:

lilac/mauve - brightens sallow skin
mint/green - covers redness
yellow - covers darkness
beige - neutralizes
apricot - brightens dullness and yellow complexions
pink - highlights
brown - contours

Lise Watier Portfolio - $30 - with 5 colours: lilac, yellow beige, green, ivory and brown.
Quo Colour Corrector - $19 - with 4 colours: mauve, mint, yellow and beige. Available at Shoppers Drug Mart.

Jillian Dempsey for Avon Professional Corrector Palette - $9.99 - available in 2 shades: light and dark with 4 colours: lilac, pink, apricot and yellow.

Available from your Avon rep 1-800-265-AVON or online at www.avon.ca
Physicians Formula Mineral Wear 3 in 1 Correcting Concealer - $13.49 - in two sets to correct, cover and highlight: green/light/pink or yellow/light/pink.

The best tip I can offer when using them is too go easy, especially with the unusual colours like green and yellow and I always find they work best when I mix them with a bit of my foundation or concealer rather than use them straight to avoid having green or yellow blotches on my face!

  1. What style of corrector is easier to use, the liquid like the Physician's choice, or a creamy one like the compacts?

  2. If you are going to mix it then the liquid ones are easier, if you are using it directly, like a bunch of different colour choices or travel a lot then the compact would be easier!


    Best, Lisamarie

  3. Enjoyed the color tutorial...that is always confusing to me :)
