Decades ago, how to use color to neutralize dark marks or skin discoloration was taught, learned and practiced by professional makeup artists, however this concept has been replaced by concealers and other cosmetic products that camouflage rather than neutralize.
Certain colors do the work for us when it comes to removing discoloration. Red and green, blue and orange and pink and brown are all colors that cancel each other out.
Our all-natural, mineral-based neutralizing color correctors are eye treatments as well.
They contain nourishing and skin-loving ingredients such as evening primrose, sweet almond and avocado oils. Their high essential fatty acid and vitamin E content help to fight free radical damage which help delay of appearance of fine lines.Skin type: All

A corrector is intended to cover the area like a concealer. Our Color Correctors are made to neutralize discoloration. After correcting the area apply your Creme Minerals foundation, then you can follow with Get Loose if needed.
Creme Correctives are excellent for covering dark circles, bruises or for neutralizing redness. We have 7 shades to choose from. Each color has the power to block out another. Every skin discoloration can differ in color. For example, one’s dark circles may be gray, while someone else’s is blue or reddish.
Does not contain petroleum-derived ingredients or such as Dimethicone, Butylene Glycol, Pentylene Glycol, Propylene Glycol, Mineral oil, Petrolatum, Ethoxydiglycol or silicone-based additives (ingredients ending with -cone, -conol, or -xane), all of which give that silky feel to products, but can lead to clogged pores and may do more harm than good.
GINGER (deep orange) This is excellent under eye concealer for foundation shades 9-12
DAHLIA (brick red) - This is excellent corrector for shades 13-15
GREEN TEA (green) - neutralizes redness such as rosacea on porcelain skin tones. But be careful that you are not trying to neutralize temporary redness, such as what occurs after exercise when your skin may look red because when the redness disappears your skin will look like it has a mask on it. Also can be used for covering blemishes, zits, red blotches, rosacea, port-wine stains
SUNFLOWER (yellow) - Perfect for hiding those dark areas around the eye prior to applying your Crème Minerals. Can be used to conceal bluish bruises, under-eye circles and mild red tones on the face. Ideal for shades 2, 3, 6 and 7.
APRICOT (peachy) - Used for canceling dark areas for medium brown skin tones that have hyper-pigmentation or discoloration. Ideal for shades 68, 7, 78.
ROSE (pink) - This color brightens darkened areas. It neutralizes brown - think: age spots or the brown discolorations on lighter skin tones. It is also great for brown bone and inner corner of the eye.
Apply foundation before you apply the concealer. If you do not use foundation, the concealer can be applied directly to your bare skin.
Dab a small amount of concealer from the stick onto your finger or a small makeup brush. Then apply the concealer to the center of the blemish or under-eye area.
If you prefer, you can dab concealer onto your skin directly from the stick, but this method doesn’t allows for as much precision.
Use a fingertip or brush to gently blend the concealer outward from the center of the blemish or discolored area until it appears to match the rest of your skin tone.
Dust our SHEER translucent powder over the concealer before it dries completely. This will set the concealer and help prevent it from rubbing off over the course of the day
