How to Correct Dark Circles & Pigmentation

dark circle correction

Hey there! It is wedding season in Pakistan which means everyone wants to update their makeup routine to look their best. Winter is also the best time to dress up more while going to work or an outing with your loved ones. This is the only time of the year your makeup won’t melt off so it’s a great opportunity to perfect your complexion. One of the most frequently asked questions is the correction of dark circles and pigmentation. If you have not had it since birth it would be wise to consult a doctor to check for deficiencies. While this is common in South Asians, not everyone has the same level of pigmentation.

Control the amount of corrector

Most people assume that they have heavy pigmentation and apply orange corrector directly to the skin. Stop! You are using peach/orange to cancel out blue so you only need enough peach/orange for neutralization. Once the darkness is gone you may apply your concealer/ foundation on top.

Don’t use red/orange lipstick

It is important to understand that red or orange lipsticks must NOT be used to correct dark circles. There are two main reasons: safety and oil content. The ingredients in lipsticks are usually not marked safe for use around the eye area. Due to the higher oil content in lipsticks as compared to concealer/ corrector your under eye area will crease no matter how much powder you apply to set it.

Mix corrector into concealer/ foundation

While light peach correctors can usually be applied directly onto your skin, orange correctors often have to be mixed into your concealer/ foundation. Go from light peach to orange according to the depth of your dark circles. People with light pigmentation can actually get away with just using a high coverage concealer. Those with acne scars all over their face might want to try a peach face primer. I don’t want to suggest any because everyone expects different results according to their preferences.   

Choose the right product

I have compiled a list of drugstore products that you may wish to try for direct application or mixing into your concealer/ foundation. Luckily, there are some light peach concealers that you may apply directly to your skin. Please check out reviews before purchase. I have not included colour correction palettes on purpose because they can be a waste of money for consumers. Professionals should check out pro brands like Graftobian, Ben Nye, RCMA, Kryolan, MAC, Makeup Forever, etc. for excellent colour correction single shades, palettes and wheels.  

Light peach products

  • Wet n Wild Photo Focus Color Corrector Peach   
  • Revlon Photoready Colour Correcting Pen 030
  • Ben Nye Mojave Adjuster in Apricot
  • L’Oreal Paris True Match Correcting Crayon Concealer Peach
  • Makeup Revolution Conceal and Correct Concealer Peach

Rich peach/ orange products

  • Maybelline Master Camo Color Correcting Pen Peach
  • Makeup Revolution Conceal and Correct Concealer Orange
  • LA Girl Pro Conceal Orange
  • ELF Colour Correcting Stick Orange
  • L’Oreal Paris Infallible 24hr Concealer Pomade Peach
  • Kryolan TV Paint Stick Orange
  • Ben Nye Mojave Adjuster in Apricot and Burnt Orange

Creating a peach corrector

Watch how I create a rich peach corrector using Dermacol Makeup Cover and the Ben Nye Blush Wheel. The key is the amount of product you use and the places you apply. To save yourself the hassle of mixing products every single time you might want to make a small batch and store it in a tiny pot.  

Apply carefully to target areas

Use a small fluffy brush to apply and blend the corrector where the darkness is the greatest on your face. Thanks to such a brush you will be using less of the product and blending it at the same time. Short strokes are important to keep the product from spreading to the areas where your complexion is already even. You don’t want an orange halo around your eye that peeks through your foundation. If you are conscious about this just take a tissue paper and lightly swipe around the corrected area to remove any unnecessary correction.   

I hope this post answered your questions about cancelling out pigmentation. If you have any more questions feel free to drop a comment here or anywhere on my social media. Till next time, take care!

    Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a
    hard time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems
    different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.

    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone
    and tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop,
    just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views.
    I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!
