OK, this is one of those off-label uses of a makeup product, so if you’re a stickler about only using products in the way they’re intended, you might want to look away. For a second.
On the other paw, if you’re open to experimentation, I found a very effective color corrector completely by accident.
I’ve been using it to color-correct a desiccated former pimple that’s now purple, and it totally works.
I wouldn’t use it on under-eye circles, though, because it is a lip pencil, and I don’t know if it’s approved for use along water lines or around eyes in general. But I’ll use it on my chin, my cheeks, forehead, nose and the sides of my mouth.
Here I’m using it as a color corrector on my chin to hide Julian the pimple, who is STILL plaguing me.
We (or I) could literally talk about color correcting for hours. I think it’s fascinating, but to briefly summarize (haha, good luck to me), orange color-correcting products appear to cancel out/neutralize purple and blue shades, because orange and purple sit across from each other on the color wheel, where they stare each other down 24/7, throw shade and give each other the evil eye…
Typically, you’d apply orange color correctors on purple areas, then layer concealer or foundation on top.
