I don’t generally need color-correcting products, because I use foundations that give me the coverage I need to hide the redness from my rosacea and fair skin.
But as spring days get warmer and summer fast approaches, I like to lighten my face makeup, and the easiest way to do that is a lighter coverage foundation, tinted moisturizer or BB/CC cream.
For me, that’s where a green color-corrector becomes a must-have.
Given the opportunity to take Urban Decay Naked Skin Color Correcting Fluid in Green for a test drive, I couldn’t wait to see how it would hold up, and how it would help me mute the redness that I always have.
Green is one of five color correctors – there’s also Yellow to correct dullness, Peach to mask circles and spots, Lavender to balance sallowness and Pink to brighten dark areas. The line is infused with Vitamins C and E, and has a lightweight formula that’s designed to blur flaws and illuminate; there are subtle pearlescent pigments. The bottle reminds me of a miniature Naked Skin Foundation bottle, and it holds .21 oz of product.
Urban Decay is cruelty-free, of course, and these correctors are made without parabens, sulfates and phthalates.
I thought I’d show you in stages how this helped reduce my redness. Here’s my face before I began my makeup routine:
Red, red red!
Here’s my face after I placed some of the Green Correcting Fluid on my red areas – really, it’s all my face so I did have to go back with a bit more:
This is richly pigmented.
Here’s my face after I blended the Fluid into my skin:
This INSTANTLY relieved my face of the redness, balancing my skin tone. I was ready for the rest of my makeup routine. Here’s my completed look:
This really helped me balance some of the redness I’d been dealing with lately that was peeking out from my foundation – some of my red bumps on my nose, for example.
Overall, I loved this, and it’s going to be a necessary part of my spring and summer beauty routine!
The Urban Decay Naked Skin Color Correcting Fluid line retails for $28 a piece and you can find them here at Sephora.com.
Have you tried any of these correctors yet? I’d love to hear what you think of this one!
