Color Correcting- Is It Worth The Hype?

I’m sure we’ve all seen by now, the abundance of color correcting tutorials on Instagram, Youtube and every other social media platform out there where different colors are used for different reasons to make the skin appear flawlessy even. But like us, you must be wondering if you haven’t yet tried it, does it really work? 


If you don’t know already, the colour correction guide is as follows. Green is meant to colour correct redness, yellow or peachy tones for under the eyes. Purple is meant to brighten the skin and orange is meant to neutralize bluey tones.

After purchasing the Collection #correctandconceal palette we thought we would test just how good the colors really are. In our opinion, the green was definitely a firm favorite (as you can tell) this worked amazingly at eliminating redness and also meant that I didn’t need to go in with a concealer afterwards. The yellow and peach shades also helped to brighten under the eyes though we don’t think that this is the same for all yellow concealers as the MUA yellow is not very pigmented so a lot more is needed for it to really work. However, all other shades were not as useful in our opinion unless you chose to use the darker shade to contour, as the purpose for those colors which are to correct less evident discoloration meant that it did not look different through using these shades. But if you do suffer from redness and are on the hunt for a good concealer to cover it, we would completely recommend the green shade here. 

 Other colour correcting products we have tried is the Barry M green colour correcting primer which you can find out more about in our review: Barry M primer review

  1. I used the Morphe 20 Conceal palette I think it’s called? I used the colour correcting shades and honestly I shouldn’t tell much of a difference. Just felt like a lot of hassle. Although, a light pink under my eyes did help to brighten them up! Xx
