Fits the color perfectly and the products are applied correctly, they can improve the look in no time – my absolute insider tip, to look super fresh and awake. The skin under the eyes is very thin, so often the blue of the veins shines through what we perceive as dark circles. The Corrector serves very dark eye circles brighten and conceal. A corrector is based on the colors peach or pink. The Rosaton optimally corrects the violet or green color of the eye shadow best.
How do I apply a corrector?
The Corrector is applied to the entire lower part of the eye , starting from the inner corner of the eye. He is gently dabbed, even directly to the lower eyelashes , because the skin is often dark there. For very dark circles, it may be that a second layer is needed.
How do I find the right color for the corrector on the palette?
The right shade should be one or two shades lighter than the actual skin tone . Incidentally, this also applies to the concealer.

The Corrector best reduces the blue of the eye shadow through the pink pigments . But since most people have yellow pigments in the skin tone, pink is often too unnatural .

Is it okay to only use concealers?
Yes, with very weak eye shadows, a concealer is enough. Just try it out and get the best result. For eye shadows , which are almost non-existent, I use only a foundation that is a little bit lighter than the actual skin tone. It is important that the eye area looks fresh , of course.
Which product should I use to treat skin blemishes or bumps?
Corrector and concealer are there to dark circles to conceal, not to cover blemishes and redness. To hide tattoos, blemishes, scars, redness or even bruises, there are special cover pens. Because Concealer and Corrector are brighter than the natural skin tone, the redness or blemish of the skin would be even more emphasized. The best way to cover blemishes, redness, etc. with a yellow based foundation that perfectly matches the skin tone.
