ULTIMATE GUIDE ON DARK CIRCLES, EYE BAGS, PIGMENTATION CORRECTION
The Ultimate Guide to Color Correcting Dark Skin Tones
According to Soliz, women with darker skin tones should lean toward rich yellows, burnt corals, and orange shades: “Whether you’re trying to conceal spots, blemishes, dark circles, or pigmentation, these are the best for deeper skin tones,” he says. With so many options on the market, it might be tempting to test the rainbow. “Steer clear of pink or peach shades as they tend to make darker skin tones appear grey,” he warns.

As with any color product, beautiful blending yields natural results. The last thing you’ll want to look like is a faulty art school project. “The best way to apply a color corrector to achieve a natural look is to first apply it with a concealer brush or straight from applicator, dab it or glide on area, and then blend with fingertips all over area that needs correction,” says celebrity makeup artist Carola González, whose clients include Kerry Washington, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Gabrielle Union, and Natalie Martinez. “Next, layer concealer on top of corrector and blend with your fingertips on same area.”
When using foundation, González recommends using a round foundation brush (like the Hourglass No. 2 Brush) to blend over area and the rest of the face using circular motions. However, when it comes to your under-eye area or covering pimples, Soliz is a fan of using his hands. “Fingertips do a great job of achieving a natural—or what I like to call an ‘athletic finish.’ It doesn’t read as refined or as ‘done’ as it would if you used a brush,” adds Soliz.
“Foundations and powders tend to oxidize on the skin after a few minutes so wear it for a bit to see how the natural oils in your skin change the appearance of the shade,” explains Anthony. “I also suggest taking a quick selfie with and without flash to see how it reads.”
Foundation oxidizing on you mid-day? Try buffing on a bit of orange cream blush to warm up your skin—it’s one of Soliz’s secret weapons. Remember, if color correctors peek through your foundation, it’s an indication that you’re putting on too much. “Buff on a sheer layer of the appropriate color corrector and try focusing on the area of concern. Then, apply your favorite foundation or concealer on top,” he explains.
