I’m a bit of a fan of Gosh Copenhagen Makeup. Lumi Drops is my favourite liquid blush of all time, so I’m excited to explore more by the brand.
Colour correction has been big for a while now, it’s a makeup artist trick for concealing discolouration using colour as opposed to opaque concealer.
The theory goes that you choose the opposing colour on the colour wheel to block the discolouration. Every colour has an opposite colour- blue is opposite to orange, green is opposite to red, yellow is opposite to purple.
You might think “What?! More makeup? I’m already using SPF, primer, concealer, foundation, powder. Give over!” But actually, by colour correcting, you can use less makeup because it conceals more effectively than skin coloured camouflage, it can look more natural.
If you’re new to colour correction, a palette is a great place to start because you have all the shades there to play with. If you have several issues- dark circles, acne scars, blemishes, broken capillaries, a colour corrector kit could be invaluable.
The Gosh Colour Corrector kit Colour Mix 001 contains five, blendable colour correction shades to correct and cover small imperfections. The correcting shades in this palette are to balance any discolourations as well as concealing blemishes with a natural finish. For use under foundation. Perfume and Paraben Free. Cruelty Free
Gosh Colour Corrector Kit Colour Mix 001
The Gosh Colour Corrector Kit is a cute black compact with a window and a little mirror. It contains five colour correction shades that will conceal all manner of discolouration-
- Peach- Colour corrects purple/ blue. Perfect for concealing blue toned dark circles in those with fair skin.
- Yellow- For cancelling out purple tones eg acne scars
- Green- For redness, like blemishes, broken capillaries, rosy cheeks
- Lavender- To conceal yellow discolouration and sallowness. Lavender really brightens the complexion
- Orange- To cancel out blue/green dark circles, especially if you have darker toned skin.
Here are the swatches:
If you have pale skin it’s best to stick to the paler shades of the colour corrector, like the peach. You can either mix a little of your chosen colour with your usual concealer. Or apply to primed skin before foundation. You need to use a foundation with a bit of coverage so that the colour correction tones don’t show through. You then blend thoroughly with a damp beauty blender or brush
Here is my effort:
I colour corrected my dark circles by mixing peach and orange, used the green for broken capillaries by my nose and the lavender to brighten my cheeks.
I found it made my skin really even toned, brightened and perfected. The shades were great on my fair skin and blended easily. I found it a little tricky covering the green, it showed through a little next to my nose, but that would have happened with any green colour corrector, I’m sure.
I think the Gosh Colour Corrector Kit is a great colour correction palette for on the go or if you’re a beginner looking to try out colour correction. It has all the shades you need in a handy compact.
