Sephora, Marc Jacobs, Makeup Forever and more have just released new lines of color correcting products and this technique has been huge and trending at Sephora stores across North America. Although we’ve been ahead of the curve (see our color correcting products here), here is a post that explains what it is all about and how to do it.
Color correcting is the process of correcting any discoloration on the skin. Unlike men’s concealer or foundation that masks imperfections, color correcting products aim to cancel out complexion concerns and neutralize the skin tone. These products come in a variety of colors so regardless of your concern or color of your skin, you will find a product that suits you.

Sometimes when we use men’s makeup, we are also trying to address concerns such as redness, discoloration, and dullness. Sometimes regular foundation or concealer doesn’t do the trick and we keep looking for products that are fuller in coverage when really, our skin does not need it. Hopefully color correcting products will address these concerns for you so you can achieve a flawless, natural look and not have to cake on layers of full coverage makeup.
