Beauty | An Affordable Guide To Colour Correcting With Skinn Cosmetics

Skinn Cosmetics Forget Me Not Perfecting and Correcting Palette from Ideal World TV Review
I'm usually a bit of a basic make-up kinda gal, y'know the type; foundation, concealer, powder, eyeliner and off I go.

Sometimes I break the mould and throw on a bit of lipstick or blush if I'm feeling fancy but usually on a normal 9-5 day, I just throw the basics at my face and rush out to work - still looking like a zombie.

But colour correcting is all the rage right now and I've been meaning to give it a bash, so when the Skinn Cosmetics Forget-Me-Not Skin Perfecting and Correcting Palette Duo* landed on my doorstep recently I was intrigued and excited.

This is the first product in my collection from Skinn Cosmetics.  The brand is the brainchild of Dimitri James, a professional make up artist, author and cosmetology teacher and the range is now available from Ideal World TV.

I think you'll agree with me that this palette is breathtaking to look at.  It's fun and really visually appealing, even though I had no idea where each colour was supposed to go on my face, I couldn't wait to dig in and play with it.  

Luckily the guys at Skinn Cosmetics saved me making a fool of myself as included on the packaging was a clear and simple guide to colour correcting that even a novice like me could understand;

Green - conceals intense redness, ideal for covering blemishes or rosacea
Yellow - brightens, highlights and counteracts mild redness, ideal for blue-toned areas like under-eye circles
Purple - the neutraliser, cancels out yellow tones or sallowness and brightens
Peach - counteracts dark circles or dark spots for pale/ medium skin tones
Orange - counteracts dark circles or dark spots for medium / dark skin tones and neutralises visible veins.

The shades in this palette are infused with an extract from the "forget-me-not" flower (Myosotis Sylvatia) which is supposed to help improve the appearance of skin suppleness and help smooth the look of fine lines.

The one worry I had with these crazy colours was the thought that they'd be visible from beneath my foundation but of course, they blend out like a dream.  The palette comes with it's own super soft, pointed brush which is ideal for applying the shades around the eyes and nose contours and then I've been blending the product out with my Real Techniques sponge for a perfect base before my foundation.

As I still suffer from breakouts and redness, even in my thirties, I've been using the purple, green and yellow shades the most from this palette.
 
The shades are very creamy, non-greasy and easy to blend.  The formula is buildable if required which is very handy as I've been using the green to neutralise the redness on a recent hormonal breakout and the purple and yellow to help brighten my under-eye area.

Being a super pale gal, I know the orange shade won't be for me but I appreciate how this product caters for all skin-tones, especially for the super affordable £19.99 price point.

Are you a fan of colour correcting?  
 
Maybe you're a novice like I was and fancy giving it a go.  I'd highly recommend this palette, the fact the product has all five shades is very handy.
