Multi-Color Correction: The Evolution of Contouring
You think you’ve seen everything about contouring? You think there is no way a contoured face can get you running scared out of a room because you entered the room before it was all blended in? Well, we’d like to disappoint you about that, because the evolution of contouring has just begun. So, instead of fainting after seeing a semi-contoured Kardashian face, because it reminded you of all the images you’ve seen in the biology textbook back in high school, you are about to witness an even more advanced contouring face – the multi-color correction!
We’re trying very hard to capture this new trend on a Kardashian face, because we know every trend is legit only after it has been spotted on at least one Kardashian (yes, stop fooling yourself, the K family has become THE force that makes the Earth go round, and you just haven’t noticed that). Be sure that you’ll be instantly notified when a viral image like that goes online.
But before that, we’ll get ourselves acquainted to the new makeup trend. The main aim of using different colors is that there are always many shades on your face. It’s usually never all red, or all orange, or all dark, but a mix of everything, isn’t it? So, different colors applied to different parts of your face will help to conceal specific issues.
For example, green color will eliminate the redness, while orange color will work on your under-eye area and dark circles, purple if you don’t like the yellowy shade of your skin. If your face gets red when you laugh or blush, you might also want to add some blue on those cheeks.
You can, of course, use one color at a time or you can go trend-crazy and apply all at once, just like the trendiest Instagram users are doing now. The before-blend result? You will look like a wild tribe leader who’s getting ready for a religious ritual. But don’t worry, the vibrancy of the colors goes away once you blend them in and the final result is a natural-looking skin color, just like after a regular contouring session.
If you’re interested in an intro session in multi-coloring correction, go over TianaCosmetics’ or Nicol Concilio’s YouTube channels to watch their collab with Nyx Color Correction Concealer. Thankfully, both youtubers mentioned that they’re mostly having fun with it and so should you… good, cause we were taking this very seriously. Well, if you’re the kind of a person who likes to thoroughly enjoy their daily morning routine, this concealer set was made for you, just for you! Keep it colorful, get pretty, and just have fun!
Now, let’s take a few minutes off to realize how advanced you just became. You leaped from contouring beginner into a multi-color correction pro. As a bonus, you are also psychologically prepared to come across a multi-colored face any time of the day, as long as they haven’t invented the glowing-in-the-dark multi-color correction yet. That can actually be the next evolution step (a hint to the producers, don’t forget my commission for the idea). In that case, make sure to check back for more fashion therapy, we are always here to help!
