The Ultimate Beginner's Guide to Mastering Color Correction for an Even Skin Tone

What is Color Correcting?

Color correcting has become a popular makeup technique in recent years, and for good reason. It is a simple and effective way to even out skin tone and create a flawless base for your makeup. But with so many products and techniques, knowing where to start can be overwhelming. That's why we've put together the ultimate guide to skin tone correction and matching, breaking down everything you need to know about this game-changing makeup technique.

Color correcting is a technique that uses different shades of makeup to counteract and neutralize unwanted undertones in the skin. Various factors, such as hyperpigmentation, redness, and dark circles, can cause these undertones. In addition, other factors, such as scars, blemishes, and pimples, will affect the way you do color correction. By using the opposite color on the color wheel, you can cancel out the unwanted undertones and create a more even and neutral base for your makeup.


What Products Are Used for Skin Tone Correction?

There are various products available for color correcting, including concealers and tinted moisturizers. CARY also offers a series of products that help simplify the routine, including our dedicated EVERYDAY Tinted Moisturizer. The key is to find a product that works for your skin type and provides enough coverage for your concerns.  

  • Concealers: These are great for spot-correcting specific areas of concern, such as blemishes, dark circles, or redness from pimples.
  • Tinted Moisturizer: color-correcting primers can be used all over the face to create a more even base for your makeup.


Different shades for different effects

Skin tone matching isn't just about neutralizing unwanted undertones; it can also be used to create different effects on the skin. By using different shades, you can achieve a brighter, more radiant complexion or a more sculpted, contoured look. 

CARY's product shades are designed to suit Asian skin tones and are suitable for most individuals. The products combine skincare and concealing functions, allowing you to see immediate corrective effects while also brightening the skin and improving its texture in the long run.

EVERYDAY Tinted Moisturizer is available in two shades: NATURAL and TAN. It can adjust the facial complexion, resulting in an overall more even skin tone and a natural, healthy bronze glow. Tinted Eye Cream comes in LIGHT and TAN shades, which not only help diminish fine lines and brighten the under-eye area but also serve as concealers, specifically targeting and correcting facial blemishes. The slightly orange-toned TAN shade can further reduce the appearance of bluish-purple dark circles, catering to different skin needs at different times.
