These liquid color correctors/adjuster mediums are available in 5 universal toner shades that can be easily custom blended with other cream or liquid cosmetic products, or just used alone. Using color correctors/adjusters allows you to tone or tint a specific product for use in correction work, or to simply adjust or change the undertone, darkness, or lightness of a foundation product. This is like using a liquid “color theory” product to customize your makeup more to those needs mentioned above.
Unlike cream or pot based correctors, these oil-free water-based liquids are pure color pigment additives that can gently shift or modify the color properties in the products they are added to. They can warm up, cool down, lighten up, darken, or cancel out a color with subtle movement when added in small amounts to achieve the right tonalities. In some cases they can also be used as neutralizers directly on skin before applying base, especially with heavy skin discolorations and redness.
These 5 shades: Red, White, Yellow, Brown, and Mint give you complete control over custom correcting, adjusting, toning or neutralizing with your makeup product for just the right need. For instance, if you need a product to be more warm or olive tone add in some Yellow or Mint color. Not cool, pink, or coral enough? Then add in some Red color. Need to neutralize a yellow? Add a bit of Red. Need to neutralize red? Add Yellow. Need to darken a light skin tone color shade without making it turn a grayish undertone? Add Brown.
Understanding how to use opposite color theory in color correction and adjusting is an important makeup artist skill. It’s very easy once you understand the simple basics in how color manipulates in this regard, and as outlined below:
· Mint or Yellow can be used to neutralize (visually cancel out) purplish and redness tones in the skin, and depending on how dark the skin or its discoloration is. Yellow and Mint are often referred to as “Red Neutralizers” in other product lines.
· Red can be used to neutralize bluish tones, or liven up a sallow complexion if it too yellow. It also tones down olive tones. Red is often referred to as the “Blue Neutralizer”.
· Brown is used to darken a light skin tone without turning it gray, or to neutralize gray-brown discolorations and shadows.
· White lightens and adds brightness to dark areas, and it’s also used for bringing up or lightening darker foundation shades.
NOTE: These liquids are thicker texture for convenience, so if you need to thin them down, mix with a stabilized, antimicrobial water-based thinner, such as our Dilution Fluid. DO NOT thin these products with silicone fluids, only water-based stabilized fluids!
Not recommended for use in diluting or mixing into silicone based foundations. May not be suitable for oil based foundations. Always test in a small amount first before using.
