Skin Primers for Color Correcting

Should you spend a lot of time using color correction primers when doing your makeup?   What happened to simple and quick? The online beauty community is having a ball using primers in shades of green, pink and purple to “correct” skin-tone issues.  Online we are seeing the more-is-more makeup trends (purple minimizes yellow tones; green wipes out redness; and pink counteracts sallowness).

You can imagine how much fun beauty bloggers on YouTube and Instagram are having slathering their faces in these bright colors and snapping selfies before blending it all in. “I feel that most skin discolorations can be corrected with your regular foundation and concealer,” says Dedivanovic (Kim Kardashian’s makeup artist. “Color correcting can be used for more extreme discoloration, but it’s not something that should be done by everyone, and it shouldn’t be done in such a heavy way as it’s being shown on social media. We need to simplify things, not complicate them.”

Makeup artist Daniel Martin, who works with Jessica Alba, agrees, and he takes issue with having the need to color correct in the first place. “I think it’s overkill to spend that much time on your makeup unless you’re honestly correcting a challenge,” he says. So, OK, if you have extreme rosacea or discoloration, color correcting can be helpful. But it shouldn’t be used every day by everyone. But Mary Wiles, who works with Kristen Wiig, says she loves color correctors. “They’re staples in my kit,” she says. “They allow me to correct tonal issues without having to use a heavy base, so I can keep the skin glowing and fresh color correcting primers are good for certain things.” In my opinion, color correcting isn’t an everyday necessity. However, they’re great for discoloration issues, such as dark circles and redness.

Barbie has a new look

Fashionista, Spy Squad, Game Developer, President and Vice President.  Which Barbie do you see yourself as?  Yes, her body has rounded out a bit, and she comes in different body types and skin tones, but her face and hair is still Barbie perfect, no dead ends or pimples.  And color corrections and a deep pore cleans facial? Well, she’s still clueless.  Yes, she has style, but is she still relevant?
