The difference between correctors and concealers?
Correctors are a specifically used to cancel out or neutralise dark pigmentation on the skin,
as oppose to concealer, which does exactly as the name suggests, conceal areas on your face.
Correctors come in a range of different peach and salmon shades to correct even the darkest of dark circles –mine! As dark circles have blue/purple undertones in them, peach/salmon shades help to counteract and neutralise them.
Salmon correctors generally work well on pale complexions, while peach correctors work better for darker complexions.
Using concealer alone on extremely dark circles, can make them stand out even more, giving a greyish appearance to the eye area.
Even on no make-up days, the Bobbi Brown Corrector is a much needed extra step in my beauty routine! Worn alone, it looks so natural that it can fool anybody into thinking I don’t suffer from those dreaded panda eyes!
I use the shade Deep Peach and I find the thick, creamy formula requires quite a bit of rubbing on the eye area in order to blend it seamlessly. I’ve figured that by using it straight after I apply eye cream, before I let it sink in completely, it’s much easier to blend out, and the finish is spot on!
I apply this with my finger, just where I need it; under my eyes, the inner corner of my eyes and occasionally round the sides of my mouth.
I then use my beloved Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer layered over the top. The doe-foot applicator makes it super easy to apply and it blends well without looking cakey on the skin. This can be layered for optimal coverage, doesn’t crease and leaves a radiant glow on the skin! The shade Caramel is perfect for my skin tone and looks undetectable on the skin.
Have you got any panda eye fighting remedies?
