What Are Professional Color Correctors?
Professional Color Correctors are used when making custom color changes to foundation, concealer and blush are needed. Pro Color Correctors mix easily together and with liquid cosmetic products. You can also create custom color correctors such as peach, salmon, lavender and pastel green. The use of color correctors will assist you in hiding a persons flaws and highlighting their facial strengths.

There are six velvety correctors, used in cosmetic products to lighten, darken, contour, add new tint and tone to products, and cover hyper pigmentation. The packaging assists you in releasing your color quickly. Due to the ultra rich pigmentation in these correctors you absolutely only need to use a tiny, tiny dot. Mix it into enough foundation to cover, use several shades mixed for contouring. For those of you in theatre and films you can create an abundant amount of shades, tints and tones.
Yellow – excellent for under eye circles; used to add yellow tones; Yellow also counteracts purple blemishes and bruising.
Black – is not a color, it is actually absent of color, it is used in the art and cosmetic industry to darken colors-absorb the light in them. Use this to darken your foundation shade, a darker shade of foundation is also used to diminish flaws and highlight strengths.
Green – Adds extra coverage and color correcting for skin with too much redness from inflammation, such as rosacea and broken capillaries.
White – This is not a color, it is a tint, and tints are used to lighten all colors. When you are in between shades in your color range white can be used to lighten, black to darken. White can be used to create a foundation one or two shades lighter than your regular makeup and to be used for highlighting.
Red – used when needing to add more pink in foundation for Caucasian skin or shade of red in some darker skin tones.
Blue – Simply mix equal amounts of yellow, red and blue (primary colors) together to make brown, known as a neutral color. The amount of each primary color used will make a specific shade of brown: more yellow, less red, less blue and so on.

This yellow corrector comes in a simple, small, cute plastic tube which is very handy and convenient to use. It has a nozzle tip dispenser on top which is apt for taking out the required quantity. The viscosity is thick, highly pigmented, has good coverage and is easy to control when dispensing.

Here you can see how I have customized the shade of my foundation my mixing a drop of coastal scents yellow corrector
I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS !!!!!!!!! It has sorted out one of my biggest issue in life 😀
Ok, So, I have prominent yellow undertone in my skin and I rarely come across good brands which offer foundations with some yellow tone. I know MAC offers studio fix fluid in NC & C series for yellow undertone skin, but their foundation breaks me out badly.
I recently spotted this wonder product ( 😀 ) on routine coastal scents website surfing. It clicked me instantly that I could use this to customize my otherwise useless foundations and I ordered one immediately… Since the day I got it I have been mixing a tiny drop of it almost everyday in my moisturizer & foundation to get my perfect shade of TM. With time and usage I have gained some experience as to how much quantity I should be mixing in to get my perfect shade so, now I have decided I will be mixing this in a complete jar of my lotus gel crème with some foundation and prepare my customized Tinted moisturizer. 😀 😀 😀
I also tried this as a concealer for my under eye dark circles and it works equally well. It blends very easily in the skin and provides light-medium coverage. However, it can be a little too yellow on the under eye area, if used in excess. So, you need to start of with little quantity first.
Overall, I am really in awe of this product, and I am definitely ordering more of this yellow corrector and may be white & green too .
