Correct me if I’m wrong delves into the colour corrective creams you can purchase on the high street today. Foundations are generally meant to even out skin tone and combat minor skin blemishes, but most do not generate the amount of cover you may need for flaws such as scarring and dark circles. The cover needed in films and theatre tend to be heavy and greasy so shouldn’t be used as an everyday make-up, plus on-screen stars often have air brushing to help that ageing skin or breakout on set. Corrective make-up is a powerful trick to learn and can also be used to disguise some more prominent features of the face such as close-set eyes and a wide nose. This will be covered in a later article next week. Corrective creams work on the basis of complimentary colours
Red and Green
Blue and Orange
Yellow and Violet (purple)
What do colour corrective creams do?

My favourite corrective palette is Make up Forever 5 camouflage cream palette, which comes in 5 different palettes depending on skin tone. Highly concentrated in pigments, they are perfect for covering dark spots and other skin blemishes and unifying the complexion. www.makeupforever.com
